We hope those of you who are comfortable testing applications that is ancient or are a part of the open source community growing browsers will use these assembles at least a tiny bit daily. Ultimately, we’re looking for your feedback — what is working well, what things you’d love to see in the product and what’s not working. The more you utilize early builds and provide us comments, the better we can make the product. Other browsers built using Chromium, although in reality, your usage at this phase helps us locate bugs which we may fix for not only another version of Microsoft Edge.
Thank you to everyone who is engaging with us on this work. We look forward to sharing updates and more details as we continue on the journey.
Our goal is to work together with the larger Chromium open source community to make web compatibility that is better and less fragmentation of the web for all web programmers.
In these assembles we are focused on the fundamentals and have not included a vast selection of language and feature support which will come after. You’ll start to see differences in the Microsoft Edge including subtle design finishes, support for a broader selection of extensions and the capability. We will refine the feature set over time depending on the feedback we get and look forward.
As a reminder — people having current Microsoft Edge who don’t feel comfortable trying early applications out, there. The Microsoft Edge you use now isn’t changing. However, if you would still like to follow together with the most recent, check out the Microsoft Edge Insider site.
If you are prepared to participate, we invite you to visit the Microsoft Edge Insider website and download now. You may also read more about the brand new preview builds and our participation from the Chromium community on the Microsoft Edge Developer Blog.
Now we’re embarking on another step in this journey — our very first Canary and Developer builds are ready for download on Windows 10 PCs. Canary builds are trailer builds that will be updated daily, while Developer assembles are preview builds that will be updated weekly. Support for Mac and all supported versions of Windows will even come over time.
We’ve also begun to make back donations into the Chromium source endeavor along with what is visible in the browser itself. These include areas like others, touch, ARM64 and accessibility. We’re working with the teams at Google and the Chromium community with this work and appreciate the open and collaborative discussions. We look forward to continued involvement with the community to advance Chromium in many others and these regions.
