Microsoft sets Jan. 15 launch for its second-chance Edge

Microsoft will release a production-quality version of its recast Edge browser Jan. 15, or in just over 10 weeks.

 

Ironically, Edge's planned Jan. 15 launch date will come a day late for most Windows 7 users. The day before, Jan. 14, Microsoft will issue Windows 7's final for-the-general-public security fixes, then officially retire the 2009 OS. But Microsoft has a reason for the apparent madness: It sells post-retirement support, called Extended Security Updates (ESU), to business customers for up to three years, or until January 2023. While Microsoft has not said it aloud -- at least to Computerworld's knowledge -- it will almost certainly service the new Edge on Windows 7 with security and feature updates.

Edge 79 Beta can be downloaded for Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Server and macOS from Microsoft's Edge Insider website.

And by the way, with linux, no NOTEPAD in use, and just a text editor.. so have to either copy to address bar / text editor and recopy & paste to forum.. but this can cancel any highlighted text (to again work on with forum tools to re-highlight)..
