We knew it was coming, but Microsoft has finally launched its Edge browser for Android and iOS devices.

The company introduced preview versions of the app last month, but now the app is available for everyone in certain markets. The iOS incarnation is available in the App Store today in the U.S., U.K., France, and China, while the Android incarnation is launching in those markets in addition to Australia, Canada, and India.

“We look forward to bringing MS Edge for iOS and Android to additional markets and languages over time,” noted Windows and Devices corporate VP Joe Belfiore, in a blog post.

The Edge browser is basically Microsoft’s replacement for its previous Internet Explorer browser, and it represents the company’s attempt at reinventing its browser for the modern age with a focus on “lightweight” and cross-platform functionality, including password support. The browser is available for Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Xbox One, and now Android and iOS too.

“We have a long list of new features to build and improvements to make,” added Belfiore.
