Microsoft Edge browser moving to a quicker release schedule

Microsoft was able to ditch the poor image of its Internet Explorer browser by introducing Edge, a new browser that was built from the ground up.

However, one of the problems facing Edge right now is that it doesn't get regular feature updates. The browser gets its monthly dose of security updates via the Patch Tuesday release cycle, but feature updates are tied together to the Windows 10 upgrade cycle.

There have been fewer Windows 10 updates than initially promised, at the moment Microsoft is promising two Windows 10 updates a year but clearly this is not enough to compete with browsers like Chrome and Firefox that are updated much more frequently.

Therefore, Microsoft is reportedly moving the Edge browser to a separate release cycle. Neowin reports that starting with the Windows 10 "Redstone 3" update, which is expected in September, the company will make it possible to update the Edge browser via the Windows Store:
But according to internal sources, that's all going to change in September, when the next feature update to Windows 10, codenamed Redstone 3, is released. Users will finally be able to get updates to the Edge browser via the Windows Store, which will allow Microsoft to add new features more frequently.

Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that you'll be able to uninstall Edge by right-clicking on it in the Start Menu. While it's entirely possible that Microsoft could implement this, it seems very unlikely, as the company has been trying very hard to get people to use its browser.
