Microsoft is going to release its Edge Chromium browser early next year that will have a new logo. They are planning to release it on 15 January and it will be available for Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8, and macOS. Microsoft is also releasing what they call as a “release candidate” today which will demonstrate most of the work that will come into the stable release.

Edge Chromium Specifications

This is only a few months after Microsoft released the beta version of Edge, with a promise of a full release in early 2020. This new release candidate build will have many features such as sync support for passwords, history, favorites, and settings across Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. What’s more, it will include Microsoft’s new built-in tracking protection, which is enabled by default.

There is even a new logo as well as an icon for Edge. The previous one looked a lot like Internet Explorer, the newly designed logo looks more like a wave. The company is also bringing some new features that are business-focused. Now the user will be able to type in the address bar to find co-workers, office locations, floor plans for a building, and even get definitions for company acronyms.

This is all thanks to Microsoft Search in Bing, which is built into Edge. It’s designed to combine typical intranet searches into an interface where you can also search the web using Bing. Yusuf Mehdi, head of Microsoft’s modern life, search and devices Group said recently “Today marks an important milestone as we head to the formal launch of Microsoft Edge and Bing for our commercial customers in January. As we enter the new year, we are excited to share more about how we will expand opportunities for developers, and later in the Spring even more for consumers.”
