Microsoft is releasing a new stable version of Edge Chromium browser. Version 80 is the first major update to the stable channel, featuring native ARM64 support.

For ARM SoC users, Microsoft is bringing native ARM64 builds to the production branch.  These builds have been in Canary and Dev channels for a while, and most of the compatibility issues were resolved during that time. If you own some device like Surface Pro X, you can give it a try.

The full version number is 80.0.361.48.

The stable version of Microsoft Edge Chromium can be downloaded from the official web site:

Download Microsoft Edge Stable

Existing users can manually check for updates by opening the menu (Alt + F) > Settings > About Microsoft Edge. This will install the latest update.

The browser has been redesigned from scratch, so you'll find it works less like the legacy Microsoft Edge and more like Google's Chrome and other browsers. It's got tracking protection built in, Picture in Picture video, 4K video support for streaming websites, and lots more. The move to Chromium is key – it has allowed Microsoft to support Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, alongside macOS, Linux (coming in the future) and mobile apps on iOS and Android. The browser is much more universal, easier and quicker to use and is compatible with more websites.

Microsoft Edge is still supporting a number of aging Windows versions, including Windows 7, which has recently reached its end of support. Check out Windows Versions Supported by Microsoft Edge Chromium.

Interested users can download MSI installers for deployment and customization.

For pre-release versions, 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. Microsoft is going to support Edge Chromium on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, alongside macOS, Linux (coming in the future) and mobile apps on iOS and Android.
