Three weeks ago, Microsoft officially launched an Edge browser based on the Chromium kernel. Although many people haven’t received the update yet, the company announced the Edge 80 for stable channels today. Happily, the browser now supports ARM64 PCs in native origin, including devices such as the Surface Pro X, Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS, and Samsung Galaxy Book 2.

Previously, users could only turn on Intel 32 simulation on ARM64 PCs. Not only does it cause performance losses, but it can also cause serious problems.
Microsoft’s approach to launching the Edge browser project without ARM64 native support (the day before Surface Pro X hit the market) is confusing.
The good news is that the issue appears to have been resolved because the classic version of Edge is already natively supporting ARM64.
If you have an Intel 32-bit simulation version of the Edge browser installed on your ARM64 machine, remember to check that it has been updated automatically. If there is no automatic upgrade, deploy it manually.
Finally, Edge 80 Stable is now available to users across all platforms, including Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, and even macOS.
