I have given in to my paranoia Microsoft has made a lot of promises about Edge Browser but given their history I don’t trust them nor should you.
So as a mac user and not owning a windows machine I still need to some how test my sites on Edge.
Here is a solution for everyone who refuse to buy an operating system just to check a Microsofts latest web browser is playing nice with your site.
Just for the cost of the bandwidth to download and in my case that is free.
Nothing is pirated here its all FREE to use and does not get you in any trouble.
Step 1 download Virtual Box
Step 2 download MS developer VM for testing Edge.
Don’t follow MS instructions they are wrong very wrong convoluted.
Apple App store free down load to Unarchiver (FREE)
unarchive the MS file
unarchive the unarchived file you unarchived (because MS is crazy)
put the MSEdge - Win10TH2.ova file somewhere you can find it. You will want to trash this file as its 4.85 GB
double click the .OVA file
go to import or you can read through this https://www.maketecheasier.com/import-export-ova-files-in-virtualbox/
Start Appliance yes it slow starting (Hint when you turn it off save its state faster than going through this MS windows hell of starting up .
this is a VM with 4GB of ram dedicated to it, It is not snappy by any means yet for testing my site its good enough.
