Stable Update Channel Made its First Appearance for Microsoft Edge Chromium

Users who track the development process of Microsoft Edge Chromium are know that currently the browser is available in three channels: Beta, Dev, and Canary. The Stable channel which holds app builds designed for the production environment made its first appearance, giving us an idea that we should get the first stable version of the browser pretty soon.

Microsoft is currently using three channels to deliver updates to Edge Insiders. The Canary channel receives updates daily (except Saturday and Sunday), the Dev channel is getting updates weekly, and the Beta channel is updated every 6 weeks.

In addition to this scheme, Microsoft has introduced Controlled Feature Rollout (CFR). It is a procedure used to roll out new features to small randomly selected groups of users so that they can be tested. Based on the feedback and reliability reports from these user groups, Microsoft will expand CFR groups to include more users.

Finally, there is a new 'Stable' channel of updates. As of now, it is a stub. The online (web) installer for the stable branch doesn't work, having the installation process interrupted.
