About a year ago, Microsoft announced that it would rebuild the Edge browser in Google's open source Chromium project, at the Ignite 2019 conference in Orlando today.The browser was finally announced to be officially launched on January 15, and a candidate release of the version was released today and available through beta channels. The version number is 79.0.309.11.

Dev and Canary use the updated chromium 80 kernel. Given the higher update frequency, you can expect edge beta to upgrade to chromium 80 before the official release of edge 79.

The biggest change in the latest release is that edge is getting a new logo. Interestingly, this candidate doesn't bring a new icon, although we should see it later this week, along with possibly new canary and dev versions.

If you want to view the candidate release immediately, you can download it here:
