Edge Chromium Stable Is Coming on January 15, 2020 With New Icon

Today at the Ignite 2019 conference, Microsoft made an announcement about the release date for the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser. The company expects to push it to the stable branch on on January 15, 2020.


The Beta channel of Microsoft Edge today received a new update, 79.0.309.11. Microsoft says it is the final Beta before the new Microsoft Edge is generally available, also known as the “Release Candidate.” There will be no more Beta releases until the stable version is released on January 15th.

Microsoft Edge Channels

The browser has got a new logo. The new logo features the E letter combined with a wave (for surfing the web). It looks modern, following the Fluent Design language that Microsoft is using these day for Office and Windows 10X icons.

As you may already know, 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. The stable channel is also on its way to users.
