In December 2020 Microsoft announced the release of a native ARM version of Edge browser for Apple M1 devices. With this native Edge build, users could expect better performance when compared to the earlier Rosetta-based build on Apple M1 devices. Then only the Canary version was available, which is, of course, the buggiest and most unstable version, but today Microsoft confirmed that Apple M1 users can now find a version of Edge in each channel for their devices.
