Interested in testing the next version of Microsoft Edge? Then join the Microsoft Edge Insider program, which just opened up for applicants today.
“Calling all developers and tinkerers,” the sign-up page announces. Your voices will help us shape the next version of Microsoft Edge. Sign up to be the first to know when preview builds are available.”
As I’m sure you heard, Microsoft announced today that it will adopt the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop, across Windows 7, 8.1, and 10, and macOS. The announcement was rather vague, but the software giant says it is taking this radical step to “create better web compatibility for our customers, and less fragmentation of the web for all web developers.”
In joining Chromium—which, contrary to popular belief, is not “owned” or “controlled” by Google, Microsoft is meaningfully increasing its participation open source software. “We’re determined to be good members of the OSS community,” Microsoft notes.
Anyway, you should sign-up. I assume the Insider Program will be for Edge for desktop specifically. And we should see our first pre-release version of the app in early 2019.
