Chromium-based Edge browsers currently have three channels, Canary (Sunrise), Dev (Weekly) and Beta (updated every six weeks), and the Stable channel has been downloaded and installed from a Microsoft server, but has not been officially launched. Typically, only beta and Dev channels have update logs, but with the Canary channel version moving into 80.0.319.0, Microsoft made an exception in a community post about the changes in the new version.
In the post, Microsoft said it was considering providing update logs in the community every day after the release of a future version of the Canary Channel. As the first update log for the Canary channel version, Microsoft set up a mysterious approach. But users Cameron_Bush managed to decipher the text.
The latest version of the Canary Channel introduces a number of new features, including importing browser history from Firefox and enabling the installation of extensions from the Chrome Web Store that change the look and feel of the browser. Here’s what’s new for Edge Canary 80.0.319.0
