Chromium-Based Microsoft Edge Version 75.0.111.0 Now Available for Download

A new version of the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser is now up for grabs, only a few days after the first leak made it to the web.

Since this isn’t yet an official release, a changelog isn’t available, so it’s hard to tell exactly what’s been changed since the previous version.

However, after using the browser for several hours, I can tell that the overall reliability and browsing speed have both been improved in this build, though you can only notice it when comparing it with the older version side by side.

Also, Microsoft Edge seems to be a little bit more responsive now, especially on Windows 10 – as I reported earlier this week, the new Chromium-based version of the browser also runs smoothly on Windows 7, as the migration to the new engine allows Microsoft to release it cross-platform.

Of course, Microsoft Edge version 75.0.111.0 is still an early development build, so expect the browser to improve more significantly as we get closer to the official preview build for users worldwide.

The Chromium-based Microsoft Edge

Microsoft announced in late 2018 that it would be giving up on EdgeHTML and migrate Edge browser to Chromium, explaining that such a change allows the company to contribute to the development of this engine and thus improve the web experience for everyone.

The company promised an early testing build of the new browser in the first months of 2019, and given all these leaks, it’s believed that this release is just around the corner.

As for the full version of the new Microsoft Edge, little is known at this point, but this should happen later this year.

Microsoft Edge is being maintained as part of the same channels as Google Chrome, with Microsoft pushing builds through Canary, Beta, and Stable channels.

You can see a screenshot tour of the new browser here, and download Microsoft Edge for Windows from Softpedia using this link.

@gvv You probably don't know very well what is official and what is Softpedia?
It hasn't been officially published yet on any place, even not on Microsoft or developers site. 

Moreover, now is all internet full of it, but there is nowhere any official link. I'm an officially registered tester and still I don't have an official link.

Like before, the EXE is signed from Microsoft.... Of course there's no official link; that's why it's a leak.

 

There's an ongoing thread about this on MDL with lots more info.

Just reluctant to install the leaked one thinking about updates. Will there be updates to the leaked one? Else there Is no point in installing an outdated version with no update support. :)

Till  the Edge with chromium becomes official, I think we have to update is manually. As Microsoft will seed updates only to handful of IP's of the Edge product team for testing and bug fixing.

Software, what have never released, cannot be outdated. And the other thing - it based on Chromium 75, which is also still only on developing stage - so, it cannot be outdated.

And the last thing - it does not replace or disable absolutely nothing, so You're absolutely free to use it or not to use, depending how You desire.

It is absolutely independent of everything You before have installed.
