Microsoft will be releasing the final version of the new Chromium-based Edge browser on the 15th of January and it appears Microsoft is testing dropping the beta label on the icon for the browser.

Microsoft will be pushing out the new Chromium-based Edge browser, replacing the EdgeHTML-powered version for all Windows 10 users.  Microsoft says the two browsers should now work identically, but it is still possible for enterprise users to block the roll-out, or to run both old and new browser side by side.
