Microsoft is getting closer to the Chromium-based browser's release, so the company recently began to introduce a change to confirm that we are in the final development phase of the app.
German websiteWUMicrosoft has started removing beta tags for many testers, which means that existing installations of Microsoft edge no longer indicate that they are beta programs.
Clearly, however, the change is still being phased out to users, so not everyone will see the beta tag disappear. On the other hand, the public is also interested in the reasons for removing the beta logo and is caught up in heated discussions.
Microsoft will release a stable version of its new browser on January 15, which will be pushed through windows update on Windows 10. Microsoft has confirmed that the stable version of chromium edge will work in parallel with the test versions of Canary, Dev and beta channels. In other words, a stable build does not replace beta sibling, so there is no need to actually remove the beta flag.
Microsoft has said:
Microsoft edge will be released on Windows 7, windows 8.1, windows 10, and Mac OS. The chrome engine may also use the Linux version of the browser, but the ETA for this platform is not yet available.
On Windows 10, the new browser will be configured as the default browser to replace the existing version of Edge. However, Microsoft has not yet provided a specific time to remove the old Edge, which will remain tied to the OS for compatibility reasons.
