With the new options enabled in the sync: Addresses, phone numbers, and more And Passwords

the Edge is getting closer to the full sync. I would like to import my saved passwords from google chrome canary to the new Edge; but it is not supported, only the stable version is supported.

correct me if i'm wrong but I think the difference is only in the location where google chrome beta/canary/stable save the browser data. if that's the case then it shouldn't be hard at all to implement this. it will make life easier for a lot of people, right now if i want to do it i have to install a stable chrome first, import data and uninstall it.

@HotCakeX A slightly off-topic comment: I still have sync enabled for just Favourites and Settings:

I am also on the latest Canary, which is, version 77.0.223.0 running on Windows 10 version 1903. It is quite strange, though.

@Subhadeep Dey 

I think they are rolling out this feature slowly country by country.

i think it's account by account since i'm in US (normally the first one to have feature and i don't have this sync).
