Microsoft’s new Chromium-based Edge Browser Rolls Out to all Windows 10 Users via Windows Update


Microsoft has released a stable version of its Chromium-based Edge browser to the public earlier this year. However, just like any other browser, it was available to download externally by visiting the official website. As expected, Microsoft is now pushing the browser to Windows 10 devices via a Windows Update.

Since its launch, it was expected that the newly made Chromium-based Edge browser will replace the existing pre-installed Edge browser. And now, the software giant has finally made it possible by pushing it along with the latest Windows 10 update in an attempt to make Chromium Edge as the default Windows 10 browser. 

Microsoft support articles KB4541301, KB4541302, and KB4559309 inform users and administrators that the old Edge browser is being replaced with the new Chromium-based browser. The updates will be available for Windows 10 v1803 and later systems up to Windows 10 v2004.

Installing Chromium Edge via the Windows Update will replace the old Edge browser. However, unlike manually installing, it can’t be removed to restore the old Edge browser. There are a few different updates rolling out depending on your Windows 10 version. Microsoft also makes recommendations for which update you should be on before installing the Windows Update.

As of now, the update is still yet to hit the Microsoft Update Catalog website. However, we can expect to see the update arriving within a few days.
