Edge is the new web browser which Microsoft unveiled as the default browser for Windows 10. The company had earlier promised that the browser will recieve frequent updates to improve its performance over browsing. However over a period of time that did not happen.

At the recently concluded Ignite Conference, Microsoft’s Fred Pullen announced that the company is planning to update the Edge browser via Windows Store on similar lines of Google’s Chrome browser for Android.

Mr. Fred revealed that the company is planning to move the Edge browser from the build updates to the Windows Store updates for it to receive frequent updates as was promised earlier at the time of its launch with Windows 10.

The reason behind the company planning to move the Browser to the Windows Store is to receive faster feedback on the performance of the browser and also the issues with the Edge browser does not affect the OS overall.

However Pullen has not revealed any confirmed date as to when the company plans to move the Edge browser to the Windows Store, but it seems that it would be happening sooner than later since the company is working on releasing new features with Redstone 2 for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.
