Microsoft Edge is now a lot better than it used to be before. The Edge browser is a chromium based browser and far superior to the old Internet Explorer. It runs on the same Chromium engine as Google Chrome. This is an advantage for the Microsoft Edge browser as it supports the same store as the Chrome browser. If you use Edge and want to personalize your browser, here are the 20 best Microsoft Edge Themes.
Microsoft Edge supports Extensions including a number of themes similar to Google Chrome. You can even use the Chrome Web Store to get add-ons to your Microsoft Edge browser.
Google Chrome does have many features but it takes a lot of resources to run which is not reliable for low-budget laptops. And in that case, Microsoft Edge comes to the rescue. It now has all features of Google Chrome. It uses a lot fewer resources and thus feels faster and saves battery. If you also use it on your computer and want to make it attractive then you can check out these Themes for Microsoft Edge. Let’s start with the installation guide first.

The Colors theme is just like a painting with color splashes but only at the top of the screen. The theme looks amazing on the browser.

Having the option to choose between light modes and dark modes on almost any software has become a standard option. However, in the case of web browsers like Microsoft Edge, the dark theme doesn’t really make everything that dark. It does, however, apply a bit darker shade of gray as dark mode.

Nature lovers can chill with this pastel green theme. The theme shows off the green bushes and plants that have been designed keeping it as minimalist as possible. Do keep in mind that this theme’s background is a bit too bright, so it’s not to everyone’s taste.
