Get the latest browser version numbers via API
Our Browser Versions API provides the latest version numbers for Edge and the other major browsers. You can easily incorporate this data into your own system.
Edge vs EdgeHTML
The Edge browser uses the EdgeHTML rendering layout engine to show websites. Edge's user agent string only provides the version number of the EdgeHTML rendering engine.
So, when we show you which version of Edge you have, we are checking which version of EdgeHTML you have and then mapping that to the actual version of Edge, making sure you've got the most accurate information possible.
Please note that the version numbers given above are the latest versions of the actual Edge browser - not the version of EdgeHTML.
