    Chromium Edge browser?


    When will Chromium Edge be rolling out to general users? Will Chromium Edge be preinstalled on future releases of Windows 10?

    Read several reviews on this new Edge and looks promising.

    Just donít want to keep installing Chrome every time I install Windows.

    So really my main question is, will it be built into Windows already or is this something that needs to be installed by the user?

    My main question is, once the Chromium-based Edge rolls out in general, will users have to install it separately in future releases of Windows or will it be already pre-installed like the standard Edge for Windows 10?

    Another question, as soon as MS releases the STABLE version of the
    Chromium-based Edge, will it become available for users who are on older releases of Windows 10 through the Windows Update?

    No.

    Yes, but I think that will only happen until next year in 20H1, or maybe they surprise us and the new Edge comes preinstalled in 19H2...

    I wanted to add this that appears in an article published today in onMSFT:

    After a session at Build last week, a few attendees gathered around CVP for Edge Chuck Friedman, who explained that the problem will soon just go away.

    Friedman explained that once Edge Insider ships, it will replace current Edge on all versions of Windows 10 (once users actually update their machines, something theyíve been historically slow to do), including replacing the current various versions of the Web View control built in to Windows with a new single and updateable (via the new Edge app) one, so that (in theory) all versions of Windows 10 will be running the same browser and Web View controls at the same time.
