In January this year, the official version of edge browser based on chromium was released, and support for win7 / 8.1, Mac OS, IOS, Android and other platforms was realized.
However, Microsoft has ended all free update support for win7. Will the new edge be an exception?
Microsoft recently confirmed on its official page,Edge browser support for Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008 R2 platform will be discontinued on July 15, 2021.
Of course, stopping support doesn't mean that it can't be used, but there is no upgrade, security update and so on.
In addition, Microsoft mentioned that the IE mode in the iteration and built-in of the new edge has no synchronous security update at present. Only those who participate in the win7 extended update plan (ESU, need to pay) can ensure that Internet access under the IE mode is also safe.
According to statistics from three parties, just over two months after the official launch, the user share of the new edge surpassed that of Firefox and came to the second place in the world. Thanks to the Chrome extension, it's more convenient to synchronize accounts and get a lot of good reviews.
