After switching to the open-source chrome kernel, Microsoft's new version of edge browser can finally compete with Google's Chrome browser, at least the version number has caught up.
Microsoft is also upgrading the edge browser step by step. At present, 80. X version is pushed. 81. X version in the test focuses on improving performance,JS performance test increased by 13%。
The 82.X version, which is still being developed, will have a long-awaited new feature Browser extension synchronization function. Players who have used chrome and FF will know how important it is.
By the way, because the chrome kernel is used, the extension of edge is actually common to chrome, which can be installed directly, which is also very important.
To use this feature, you need to upgrade to Canary (daily upgrade) version of edge browser, at least 82. X version, but not all users of 82. X version can see this feature, which is still under controlled test.
Looking at the current situation, Microsoft's edge 82. X version is expected to be pushed next month, and 81. X version should be pushed before the end of this month.
If you are in a hurry, don't use beta for edge browser. You can get the latest upgrade from dev (weekly upgrade) or Canary (daily upgrade), especially Canary (daily upgrade), which is the first choice for you.
