Microsoft has confirmed that the Edge web browser, starting with version 110, will no longer support Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 operating systems, which will end their lives in early 2023. Right now, the current Dev Channel preview build of Microsoft Edge (110.0.1543.0) is only available for Windows 10 and Windows 11 users.
It is worth noting that the decision to end support for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 was made by the Chromium project community, which means that many other browsers based on it, including Google Chrome, will not officially work on these systems.
Alternatively, users can switch to Firefox, which will continue to run on older operating systems from Microsoft. The non-profit organization Mozilla has not yet made a decision on the timing of the end of support for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1.
