Dear readers,

 

82 is dropped by the Chromium project. Does this mean that Microsoft is also dropping it and moving on to 83?

Hi@Henno_Keers 

based on this:

https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2020/03/20/update-stable-channel-releases/

 

that says: "Preview channels (Canary, Dev, and Beta) will continue to update on their usual schedule."

I think 2 scenarios are possible:

  1. they will keep Edge version 82 only on Dev channel, bring over Edge version 83 to Canary channel and keep it there. (I think this is better)
  2. they will keep each version of Edge on their current channel, don't release any new version, and continue adding features and bug fixes to them.
