I installed Edge Chromium manually, when it was released some months ago, and it has updated itself several times - all fine.
Now I need to know if Edge Chromium has been installed to all Windows 10 machines via Windows Update. (Since I manually installed mine, I can't see that).
What is the current status on that? And if not, when will that happen?
From one of my research sites : PCWorld
"Beginning January 15, Microsoft will begin replacing the old Edge with the new Edge on consumer PCs with Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro, though Release Preview Insiders will be the first to get it."
Also, why would they make a brand new browser, if it isn't going to be standard on Windows 10? Why would they make a 'WebView2' control for several programming platforms (they have just released a 'Developer Preview' for .Net), why would they make Visual Studio integration? I think my assumption is fair!
I'm still convinced, it will be installed via Windows Update some day, but apparently, it hasn't happened yet.
Now Microsoft has started to roll out
Windows 10 2004 (I have installed it on my machines).
However, since I had already installed Microsft Edge Chroumium, the question remains:
Is Edge Chromium installed as part of
Windows 10 2004?
Surely someone must have installed Windows 10 2004, in which case it's a simple question.
I reinstalled Windows 10 (in a virtual machine). This time I didn't upgrade Microsoft Edge.
Now the other day Windows Update offered to install Edge Chromium! (which I of course did). So it seems that web developers can finally forget about the original Edge.
Windows 10 version 20H2 has completely removed the original
Microsoft Edge. From now on there's only
Microsoft Edge Chromium - currently Version 86.0.622.51.
