The time was April 2019 and I was writing a post about Microsoft Edge, a new browser-based on the Chromium open-source project.
For more information on how far edge has come to please check out my previous post: Microsoft Edge Preview Builds!
Fast forward to today and the new Microsoft Edge is now available to download on all supported versions of Windows and macOS. Microsoft Edge is also available on iOS and Android, providing a true cross-platform experience.
The new Microsoft Edge provides world-class performance with more privacy, more productivity, and more value while you browse.
So of course now your asking how do I get this and can I update from the Beta, Dev and Canary builds you may be already using today…
Well, you have two choices:
1. You can either manually download it today,
2. You can wait for it to be automatically released to your device via Windows Update. (this applies to consumer customers)
IMPORTANT NOTE: When you do make the switch, your favourites, passwords, form fill information, and basic settings will carry over to the new Microsoft Edge without you having to do anything. You can read more about our rollout plans here.
If you’re an IT administrator, you will need to download an offline deployment package to pilot within your corporate environment—the new Microsoft Edge will not automatically deploy for commercial customers. Additionally, none of the Microsoft Edge preview channels will update to the new Microsoft Edge, as they can be used side-by-side for testing and validation.
