The Surface Pro X and other Windows 10 on ARM laptops have a significant app gap, due to x64 apps not working on the platform. These days however we do much of our computing in the browser, and many have complained that Microsoft has not released a native ARM64 Edge browser for Windows 10 on ARM, and instead left users with the slow emulated 32bit Chrome and Chromium-based Edge browser.
What has been particularly galling is that the ARM64 version of the modern Chromium-powered Edge browser did exist, but was not being publicly released.
It appears Microsoft has been listening to the protests, and today made the Canary version of the new ARM64 browser available.
We're pleased to announce that Microsoft Edge for ARM is now available in the Canary channel! Canary is now built natively for the ARM64 architecture that powers some Windows 10 devices, including the new Surface Pro X. It will soon come to the Dev and Beta channels as well. pic.twitter.com/cKg1H3Utfd
