Official Microsoft Edge Preview builds available

Microsoft's New Chromium-Based Edge, Now Available to Download - Petri

The Edge team said in its blog entry posted today that the new builds are available in two experimental release channels: Canary and Dev.

While Microsoft has officially take the wraps off its Insider and Developer focused Edge browser replacement, the work to a finished consumer product is still miles ahead of the company's engineers.

The Canary Channel will be updated every night, giving you a glimpse into what Microsoft spent the day before working on. But with the new Chromium version of Edge, the new website gives an easy way to extend the capabilities of the Dev and Canary builds. Typically the Dev build is more reliable, and when it reaches beta, it will be even more stable.

Microsoft also has plans to bring the Beta and Stable channels to offer the Chromium-powered Edge to the masses in the future. Like the current Edge browser, the homepage also displays a news feed with tabs for certain categories (news, sports, entertainment, etc).

"We are committed to building a world class browser with Microsoft Edge through differentiated user experience features and connected services", writes the Microsoft Edge Team.


Some changes will be more obvious to users. Some will use extensions they can't find on Microsoft's platform, some will prefer another browser's design and some probably just can't be bothered changing until they absolutely have to. This build won't replace the version of Edge now installed, and Microsoft said it will continue to ship the non-Chromium version of Edge in upcoming Windows 10 preview builds for the time being. The company says that macOS builds are coming soon.

Sync works only for Microsoft accounts, not for work or school accounts. Now, Microsoft has made the new browser available from its Edge Insider program, a version of its Windows Insider program specific to the Edge browser.

Yes, some will argue that this is not good for the "open web", being driven primarily by one rendering engine, but its a fight that Microsoft decided is not worth taking on and I agree with their decision.

However, it also means Google's already formidable power over the web - deciding in effect which technologies are supported and which aren't - is that much stronger.

"We've been collaborating with Google engineers to enable Chromium to run natively on Windows on ARM devices starting with Chromium 73".
