One of the channels Edge Insiders can sign up for is the Canary Channel, which offers daily updates to the same Chromium builds Microsoft is using internally.

Now the first Canary Build has been pushed out, taking the browser to version

While the Canary Channels offers daily updates, the Dev Channels offers weekly updates, and Beta channels updates every six weeks. To put this into perspective, if you really want to test this out and don’t want random crashes, the Beta channel is the best bet while Canary and the Dev channels are of high and moderate risk respectively.

In line with that, some users are reporting that the new Canary Build is coming with crashes, after a rather solid debut.

The update does not come with a changelog, with Microsoft considering posting these in the Feedback Hub at some point.

To get the update, go to browser setting, click on About Microsoft Edge and after it downloads the new build, restart the browser.

If you want to join the fun head over to the Microsoft Edge Insider site and download the build of your choice.

Thanks dnationsr for the tip.
