As to the new Microsoft Edge, since it’s Chromium-based, it works exactly the same as Chrome.

Guess what, if you have a Linux computer or a Mac, you will get the above download page right away. That’s because the Windows 10 Download page is based on user-agent. By emulating the page like a mobile device, it thinks you are not using a Windows-based computer. Therefore, it shows the download option instead.
