Microsoft has released a new update for the Microsoft Edge browser based on Chromium. The new version 80 circulating for Windows and Mac systems.
Although Microsoft brings several other changes to this version, there is no doubt that the biggest addition is the support for the Surface Pro X, ie the ARM device that Microsoft announced in late 2019.
The Surface Pro X is Microsoft's alternative to Google's Chromebooks, and the new Microsoft Edge that can now run on this device is great news for users as well as for the company itself.
Microsoft had to provide its customers with a fully equipped browser, also for ARM64 devices.
Microsoft says that in this version it focused on optimizations for ARM devices.
