    Microsoft has released a new Chromium-based version of Microsoft Edge. This new version provides best in class compatibility with extensions and websites. Additionally, this new version provides great support for the latest rendering capabilities, modern web applications, and powerful developer tools across all supported OS platforms.

    To learn more about the new Microsoft Edge, see the following resources:


    This update includes the following quality improvements:

    • Start menu pins, tiles, and shortcuts for the current version of Microsoft Edge will migrate to the new Microsoft Edge.
    • Taskbar pins and shortcuts for the current version of Microsoft Edge will migrate to the new Microsoft Edge.
    • The new Microsoft Edge will be pinned to the taskbar. If the current version of Microsoft Edge is already pinned, it will be replaced.
    • The new Microsoft Edge will add a shortcut to the desktop. If the current version of Microsoft Edge already has a shortcut, it will be replaced.
    • By default, most protocols that Microsoft Edge handles will be migrated to the new Microsoft Edge.
    • The current version of Microsoft Edge will be hidden from UX surfaces in the OS. This includes settings, applications, and any file or protocol support dialog boxes.
    • Attempts to start the current version of Microsoft Edge will redirect to the new Microsoft Edge.
    • The First Run Experience (FRE) will auto-launch the first time that a device restarts after the new Microsoft Edge is installed.
    • Data from earlier versions of Microsoft Edge (such as passwords, favorites, open tabs) will be available in the new Microsoft Edge.
    • This new Microsoft Edge does not support uninstalling of this update.
    • To view supported features, please see the Microsoft Edge Platform Status.

    Why not use a password manager, much easier.

    Because I've never had the need to? Never even gave it a thought. With any other browser I just backup my profile or hit "export passwords" then later if needed, "import passwords", but Edge only has "export passwords" last time I checked. Kind of pointless to have export, but not import.

    Seems unnecessary and going back in time to me.

    For those of us running EC now (non-beta) should I assume the updates come through Windows Update or the app itself? Thus no need to manually download this one?

    Thanks
