Microsoft Edge Browser is the default Browser for Microsoft Windows 10 for PC and Mobile. The Edge browser generally receives updates twice per year since its part of the Windows 10 Operating System. All this is supposed to change with the Second Major update for Windows 10 Codenamed Redstone 3 coming this September.

According to Internal Sources at Microsoft the company is planning to push updates to its Edge Browser via Windows Store allowing Microsoft to add new features more regularly and also improve the performance of the Browser.

Microsoft with this step plans to compete with Google Chrome Browser which is the most popular Browser on Windows and which receives updates more frequently via Play Store. Microsoft has been trying very hard to get people to use its Edge Browser and with this step the company is trying to improve the Browser performance both on PC and Mobile which is currently unacceptable for some users.

This step does not mean that users who are not willing to use the Edge Browser will be having an option to delete the same from the App list. Users who currently search for the Edge Browser via Windows Store, a message pops up stating “Microsoft Edge is already installed” and if you click on “Go Now” your default browser opens a page that describes things that can be done using the Browser.

We would be able to get more information on the Edge Browser and other new features that would be coming with Redstone 3 when the Microsoft’s Build 2017 developer conference kicks off on May 10.
