From:  Microsoft Edge preview builds: The next step in our OSS journey | Windows Experience Blog

Quote

In December, we announced our intention to adopt the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop. Our goal is to work with the larger Chromium open source community to create better web compatibility for our customers and less fragmentation of the web for all web developers.

Today we’re embarking on the next step in this journey – our first Canary and Developer builds are ready for download on Windows 10 PCs. Canary builds are preview builds that will be updated daily, while Developer builds are preview builds that will be updated weekly. Beta builds will come online in the future. Support for Mac and all supported versions of Windows will also come over time.

For more in depth information see What to expect in the new Microsoft Edge Insider Channels - Microsoft Edge Blog.  

One nice aspect of the preview is if you already use Microsoft Edge, that existing version installed on your device(s) at this time will continue to work along side with the builds from any of the Microsoft Edge Insider Channels.

bit rough, definitely usable. The PDF viewer from original Edge is not in yet, so I'm going to wait for that.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

You can still run the Dev or Canary build along side the regular installation of Edge for PDF files.  I really do like that I don't need another program for PDFs.

There was a bug in the build released yesterday that resulted in the browser not loaded.  It was discovered quickly and the update was removed.  As indicated in the latest update, the bug has been fixed and a new build released. See Dev channel update to 76.0.167.1 is live for the changes, improvements and bug fixes.

Update 6/4/19: In addition to the Canary Channel we released last week, you can now download the Dev channel for macOS from the Microsoft Edge Insider website. This release enables dark mode, which makes your tabs, address bar, toolbar, menus, and other elements use dark colors if you have your macOS theme set to “Dark Mode.” We’ll expand dark mode in the coming weeks to include other parts of Microsoft Edge, such as settings and management pages. Check it out, and let us know your thoughts using the “Send feedback” smiley, the Microsoft Edge Insider forums, or by reaching out on Twitter.
