Recently we reported that Chromium-based Microsoft Edge has leaked online. Microsoft is still working on refining the browser before it can be released to the public. However, it looks like that might happen soon.

German website Deskmodder (via HTNovo), has published screenshots showing the traces of the new Edge browser in the latest Windows Insider Skip Ahead Ring. Unfortunately, the files won’t be visible for everyone since Microsoft is still performing A/B testing which means not everyone will get the new Edge. However, if you’re running the latest Skip Ahead build then you can head to “C:\Users\WDAGUtilityAccount\AppData\Local\MicrosoftEdge”. Do remember that this will work only inside Windows Sandbox.

Microsoft should replace the old Edge completely in the upcoming WIndows Insider builds and we do expect the company to roll out the new Edge experience with the release of 20H1 which is scheduled to happen in the spring of 2020. In the meantime, you can check out our hands-on of Chromium-based Microsoft on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.
