Microsoft Corporation announced a few months ago that it would no longer develop Edge browsers on its own system and would instead use Chromium to develop a new browser. Recently, Microsoft officially opened a beta version of this new version of the Edge for public download.
Microsoft provides three betas for the public trial, the Canary, the dev and the beta version. The Canary version will be updated daily to let the tester know the latest developments. The development and beta versions will be updated weekly and every 6 weeks separately, providing the most stable version of the period.
Since the development of the new browser is still in beginning stage, the beta version currently only provides basic functionality. Enhancements to layouts and features will be added to the browser in the future. In addition, only the Windows 10 version is currently available for users to download, and Windows 7 and Windows 8 users will have to wait.
