Microsoft suspends two-week Edge browser update to keep pace with Chromium

In keeping with the pace of Google Chromium, Redmond-based software giant Microsoft has announced that it will suspend some updates to its Microsoft Edge browser. We’re not surprised that the default browser synletweated on Windows 10 has already migrated to the Chromium kernel, after all, it allows for more seamless synchronization. Microsoft said it would suspend the Edge Dev, Beta, and Stables push for the next two weeks.

At the same time, the Daily Updated Canary branch will continue as usual. As part of the current release plan, the Dev version is updated once a week, while the beta channel is updated every six weeks. Starting the week of July 13, Microsoft Edge will resume its established release rhythm.

While migrating to the Chromium engine, Microsoft is also working to increase the frequency of updates in the Edge browser so that it is no longer subject to operating system update cycles and can get maintenance updates faster through Windows Update.

The company is also trying to bring new Versions of Edge browsers to platforms other than Windows 10, such as macOS and Linux, which, unfortunately, have been silent on arrival times (ETA).
