Microsoft Edge Web Summit 2016 is in progress, and the tech biggie has recently presented two new devices that will permit developers to test Microsoft Edge on Mac OS X or Linux PC. According to the reports, new Microsoft’s RemoteEdge will stream Edge browser on Mac and Linux PCs.
First one is Edge Virtual Machines, which will give developers a chance to pick between the latest stable Edge HTML engine and an Edge HTML engine.
Second product unveiled by Microsoft is RemoteEdge, another tool that will enable you to stream Edge from the cloud without needing any Virtual Machine, right from your program on any gadget with no overhead. The company will make the tool accessible for developers in the near future.
Microsoft also has plans to extend the development of its latest flagship Edge web browser to developers who are not yet dealing with Windows 10. Amid its Microsoft Edge Web Summit, Microsoft talked about its plans to release RemoteEdge. The tool will stream a virtual iteration of the browser to Mac, Linux and different gadgets.
RemoteEdge will utilize Microsoft’s Azure cloud administration to stream its virtual Edge to different gadgets. It will use an HTML5-based client, which implies that developers on Mac and Linux PCs won’t need to download a client specific to their OS. Hence, they can directly use the virtual Edge browser.
Microsoft demoed RemoteEdge amid the summit by demonstrating how it could function inside a Chrome browser on Windows 10. RemoteEdge will authoritatively be released sometime in April.
Microsoft also reported that new virtual machine images for Edge are now accessible to download; one for the present stable version of the browser that was initially released in November, and the other for the later Insider preview of Edge.
How useful the latest Microsoft releases will turn out for the users? Well, wait and see.
