Google announced a schedule of updates to Chrome and Chrome OS as a result of the outbreak, and decided to skip the Chrome 82 update directly to ensure a focus on security and stability. Today, Microsoft announced that The Chromium-based Edge browser will follow up simultaneously and will skip version 82.
The next major version of the Chromium-based Edge is the Edge 81, released in early April, and the Edge 83 will be available in mid-May. “Given the impact of the current global outbreak, the Microsoft Edge team is suspending updates to the Microsoft Edge Stable Channel,” Microsoft explained. This means that the update to the stable channel will be aborted until we resume the update. “
Other channels in Microsoft Edge will continue to update normally, so if you’re running a Canary, Dev, or beta browser, the new version will continue to move forward at the same speed as before.
