Microsoft Edge for ARM Now Available for Testing

Posted on November 13, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Microsoft, Microsoft Edge, Web browsers, Windows, Windows 10 with 5 Comments

Microsoft recently announced its new Edge browser will be available to the public in January 2020. The company has already released a release candidate for the public release, though it’s missing some key features, including support for Windows on ARM.

The new Microsoft Edge browser isn’t expected to be available for ARM devices when it launches publicly in January, but those who are keen to try out the new browser can do so thanks to the latest Canary release.

Redmond is today releasing a new build for Edge’s Canary channel that comes with support for ARM devices. The update means Edge can now run natively on ARM64 devices, which should allow for significantly improved performance on Windows on ARM devices, including the new Surface Pro X.

Microsoft says the company is planning to release the ARM64 support for the Dev and Beta channels “soon”.

    Wonder if this will be coming to Android soon... That would be cool. The current edge on Android is decent though.
