Microsoft seeks Insiders for feedback on Chromium Edge development

Hot off the heels of Microsoft’s official announcement of its browser development pivot, the company is now searching for willing participants to help them shape the future of its new Chromium powered Edge software.

A new page has surfaced looking for volunteers to sign up as Edge Insiders and presumbly test new developments of the open sourced browser. Both users and developers are encouraged to sign up for the Edge Insider program that’s expected to see the first version of the new Chromium powered browser in early 2019.

Calling all developers and tinkerers: your voices will help us shape the next version of Microsoft Edge. Sign up to be the first to know when preview builds are available.

We’ve meaningfully increased our open source participation and we’re determined to be good members of the OSS community. This project is an exciting next step and we’re eager to learn from you. Be sure to sign up to be notified when preview builds become available.

With a lead up to the first release of this ground-up Chromium browser, we suspect observers can keep an eye on developments on the Edge browser for Android as it already uses Chromium code.
