- After being an exclusive Mac browser, Arc is now coming to Windows.
- The company said they aim to clear 700,000 beta testers within next year’s spring.
- You can sign up for the beta waitlist now.
Arc browser for Windows is finally here. The famous browser developer, The Browser Company, today announced that the Swift-based browser is now launching on Microsoft’s OS as a beta version.
The company estimates that approximately 700,000 users are currently on the waitlist for the browser, and will clear the waitlist by the end of next spring. Additionally, they plan to make all of their Swift development projects on Windows open-source on GitHub.
“Honestly, building Arc in Swift on Windows is one of the most controversial things we’ve ever done. Basically, everybody told us it was a “stupid” idea for like ten reasons,” the company’s boss Josh Miller says in a thread of tweets on X (fka Twitter).
After being exclusive to invited users, Arc became available to all Mac users last year. It was a popular product, but words on the streets say that the Windows client may not provide the same level of experience as the Mac version during the launch.
