This is the first step in automatically replacing the old Edge for everyone.
What you need to know
  • Microsoft today started the automatic rollout for the new Microsoft Edge with Windows Insiders enrolled in the Release Preview ring. The new browser will gradually roll out to everyone in the Release Preview ring over the coming weeks and months. This will replace the legacy Microsoft Edge browser once it is installed. The new Microsoft Edge is now rolling out automatically via Windows Update for Release Preview Insiders.
  • This is the first step in a process that will see the old Edge replaced for everyone.
  • Release Preview Insiders can grab the new Edge via Windows Update now.
This is the beginning of a process that will see Microsoft eventually replace the legacy Edge with the new Chromium-based Edge for everyone. Once testing is done in the Release Preview ring, the new Edge will see a similar automatic rollout to everyone via Windows Update.

I really like Microsoft Edge, anyone else?

Young browser so there is room for improvement.(y)
Unfortunately it should be noted that it is still lagging behind Chrome for some aspects also related to security:

Chrome SSL/TLS test:


Chromium/Edge SSL/TLS Test:


P.S. Both browsers have disabled Client Hints by default
