Microsoft’s new Edge browser, which is now based on Chromium, is now getting new features at a much faster pace. While this is great for enthusiasts and consumers, it can create some complexity in an enterprise context where stability is much more important than the next big thing.
After listening to customer feedback, Microsoft announced today that it will now share information about new Microsoft Edge enterprise features on its Microsoft 365 Roadmap portal. The left panel of the roadmap now includes filters for Microsoft Edge and its Stable and Beta channels, making it easy to get information about upcoming features.
Additionally, a Microsoft Edge release schedule for the Beta and Stable channels, which are updated every six weeks, is now available for all Edge users. This should be a useful resource for users looking to know precisely when Microsoft plans to release major updates for the Beta and Stable channels..
This move comes after the company announced another enterprise-friendly Edge feature at its Inspire digital conference earlier this week. There, Microsoft detailed that customers who have 150 or more paid sets of Windows 10 enterprise can work with a FastTrack Ready Partner to receive deployment guidance for Microsoft Edge. Microsoft also detailed a preview of Endpoint Data Loss Protection in Microsoft Edge, as well.
