    public class EdgeDriver
    extends ChromiumDriver
    A WebDriver implementation that controls an Edge browser running on the local machine. This class is provided as a convenience for easily testing the Edge browser. The control server which each instance communicates with will live and die with the instance. To avoid unnecessarily restarting the Microsoft WebDriver server with each instance, use a RemoteWebDriver coupled with the desired EdgeDriverService, which is managed separately. For example:
     import org.junit.jupiter.api.*;
     import org.openqa.selenium.By;
     import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
     import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException;
     import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
     import org.openqa.selenium.edge.EdgeDriverService;
     import org.openqa.selenium.edge.EdgeOptions;
     import org.openqa.selenium.remote.RemoteWebDriver;
     import org.openqa.selenium.remote.service.DriverService;
     import java.util.ServiceLoader;
     import static org.junit.jupiter.api.Assertions.assertEquals;
     public class EdgeTest {
         private static EdgeDriverService service;
         private WebDriver driver;

             // Setting this property to false in order to launch Chromium Edge
             // Otherwise, old Edge will be launched by default
             System.setProperty("webdriver.edge.edgehtml", "false");
             EdgeDriverService.Builder builder = = new EdgeDriverService.Builder();
             service =;
             try {
             catch (IOException e) {
                 throw new RuntimeException(e);
         {@Literal @AfterAll}
