You can learn more about the differences between Microsoft Edge Canary, Dev, Beta, and Stable in our dedicated article. In case you missed it, Edge Canary recently received a new section with accessibility settings.
Edge 94 will be the first version to switch from a six-week release schedule to a four-week cadence. Microsoft understands that not everyone is happy with the upcoming change, so it allows switching to a new Extended Stable Channel. Unlike regular Edge Stable, Extended Stable Channel will be getting major feature updates every eight weeks. Microsoft has already published documentation with all the details about moving the Edge browser to the Extended Stable Channel.
