Microsoft said Tuesday it is launching an updated version of its popular Chrome browser for Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Mac OS X 10.1.
The browser will also receive a refresh to include better support for tablets.
The browser will launch in late 2018 and will be available for download from Microsoft’s Web site and Microsoft Store, the company said.
Microsoft said the new browser will offer a number of new features, including improved security features for both websites and web apps.
It will also include support for multiple operating systems, including Windows, Mac and Linux.
Microsoft will also launch a new version of Windows called the Windows Store in early 2019, and the OS X version will arrive later this year.
Microsoft’s Chrome browser has been a strong contender for desktop users, but it has struggled to gain traction with Android users, with Chrome’s market share declining from more than a quarter to about 5 percent.
It has struggled with a lack of a central hub for Chrome’s content and features, and users have complained about slow download speeds.
Microsoft is offering the new version as a free upgrade to users who upgrade from a current version of Chrome.
It also offers a two-year subscription to Chrome, with the option to buy the premium version.
