ETA on Edge (built on Chromium)?

Is there any ETA (or guestimate) on when the Chromium-based Edge will be released to the general public?

    <p>I'm on the Beta Channel and have yet to have an issue. It's become my solid daily driver. So happy to have Chrome that's not Chrome. :)</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#458279">In reply to sentinel6671:</a></em></blockquote><p>Great, so now instead of everything being sent to Google, it gets sent to MS. Is that actually better? I read an interesting report on the number of connections all the main browsers make on startup to various external sites. Chrome &amp; Firefox make around 30 calls, Opera a little more (some dubious sites too!). New Edge makes <em>over 130 calls</em> to external sites on STARTUP – most are to various MS data collection services, which I thought was pretty staggering.</p>

        <blockquote><em><a href="#458713">In reply to ghostrider:</a></em></blockquote><p>Well they will naturally be collecting data when it is released. I bet the extra volume if calls is from it being in beta and therefor them collecting additional information that they wouldn't want from production users. Just a guess though. If you really want a privacy focused browser, use firefox.</p>

    <p><a href="; target="_blank"></a&gt; says that the current version in beta (77) goes stable in early September. There's a chance that'll be the case for Edge 77 which is beta right now.</p><p><br></p><p>But there's a chance that won't be the case (like v76 which did not follow Chromium's progression to Stable). Mary Jo Foley says "<span style="color: rgb(8, 14, 20);">Microsoft still isn't providing a target date as to when Chredge will be generally available, but it's unlikely to happen until either very late this year or sometime in 2020." (</span><a href="; target="_blank"></a><span style="color: rgb(8, 14, 20);">). So there's that.</span></p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#459358">In reply to ggolcher:</a></em></blockquote><p>Edge is using Chromium, but Edge is not Chrome. So it won't be on the same schedule as Chrome.</p>
