  • Microsoft today launched the first beta builds of its new Chromium-based Edge browser for Windows and Mac.
  • The new beta channel, which will see a new update roughly every six weeks, will join the existing dev and canary channels, which will continue to see daily and weekly updates, respectively.
  • Over the course of the last few months of preview releases in the existing channels, Microsoft gathered about 140,000 pieces of feedback.
  • With this — and a sufficient amount of telemetry it also received from early adopters — the company now feels that it knows enough about how well Edge works on a wide range of machines and that it is stable enough for enthusiasts, web developers and business users to give it a try before its wider release.
  • At this point, Microsoft has also put all of the infrastructure in place to update the browser and tested it thoroughly through the early preview phase.
  • If need be, that means the team can release an unscheduled beta when it discovers a bug and know that its update systems will work just fine.
