Microsoft Releases Microsoft Edge Dev for Windows 7 and 8.1

Postby martyyt » Fri Jun 28, 2019 10:09 pm

Microsoft has just released Dev versions of its Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser for older Windows, after the company previously published the Canary build of the app.

Microsoft Edge Canary for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 was shipped on June 19, with the software giant promising a Dev build as soon as possible.

Today, this build goes live on all three platforms, and users can download it using the links in this article.

Microsoft Edge Dev is a more stable build of the browser, as it receives updates every week. The Canary version, on the other hand, is updated daily, so the likelihood of bugs is much increased, regardless of platform.

Needless to say, both the Canary and Dev builds of Microsoft Edge are experimental releases that are only supposed to be used by testers and not to become your daily driver. However, a significant number of users made the switch already to Microsoft Edge, especially as the app proved to be very reliable on Windows. https://www.xing.com/communities/posts/ ... 1016395908


Microsoft is yet to provide us with a release target for the stable version of the new Edge, but with today’s release, the Canary and Dev builds become available on all platforms where the browser is supposed to land in production form. https://www.xing.com/communities/posts/ ... 1016395931


Because it’s based on Chromium, Microsoft Edge will be available cross-platform, so in addition to Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1, it will also run on Windows 10 and macOS. A Linux version is also being considered, albeit an official announcement in this regard is not yet available. https://www.xing.com/communities/posts/ ... 1016395938


The Windows 7 version of Edge lacks some features as compared to its Windows 10 version, like the support for the dark theme. Microsoft says it’s working on adding it in a future update, along with other substantial improvements due in the coming versions.
