The default website browsing experience on ARM-based Windows PCs just took a big step forth. Microsoft has released the first version of its Chromium-based Edge browser for ARM-based Windows 10 systems, giving all of them the compatibility and has improvements without the performance hit that comes from emulating the x 86 editions. Suffice it to say this might be very useful in case you’re running a Snapdragon-powered computer like the Surface Pro X and need a relatively lean but capable browser.
The new Edge (version 80) also carries Dolby Vision video playback and higher dealing with for web apps in extension to the usual round of fixes and tweaks. It’s going to roll out to Windows 10 users over the subsequent few weeks, but we suspect you’ll wish to grab it sooner if you’re using an ARM machine and aren’t fully attached to rival browsers like Chrome or Firefox.
