Microsoft follows Google and Chrome, shifts Edge to four-week release pace

Microsoft, as expected, has synchronized the release schedule of its Edge browser with Chrome’s, which Google had earlier announced would accelerate to an every-four-week cadence.

“As contributors to the Chromium project, we look forward to the new 4-week major release cycle cadence that Google announced, to help deliver that innovation to our customers even faster,” the Edge team wrote in an unsigned March 12 post to a company blog.

The week prior, Google had declared that it would speed up the release tempo of Chrome to match that of Mozilla’s Firefox by reducing the current six-to-eight-week schedule to just four weeks. The change won’t happen overnight, but instead will take place in the fall, when the span between versions 94 and 95 will fall to four weeks.
