After more than a year of public testing, Microsoft is now beginning to roll out the latest version of Microsoft Edge, the company’s new web browser, to users of the last four feature updates of Windows 10.
In this episode we work our way through the three key areas to discuss faith as it not only relates to my formation but also to how the church is addressing the global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. On the tech front, we will catch up with all the latest builds and other news when it comes to both the Windows and Edge Insiders programs. Under miscellaneous tech we talk about some more Xbox Series X news, BUILD going virtual and some work of mine from ITProToday about remote work and certifications. I added a COVID-19 coronavirus section to discuss this global situation – not from a medical perspective – but from a human being experience. Of course, how tech is impacting this will be part of the discussion as well. Finally, wrapping up with the latest in space related news with headlines from SpaceX, NASA, ULA, OneWeb and our orbiting astronauts on ISS. I will also share my spoiler free take on the first season of Star Trek: Picard.
In this fourth episode of the podcast I begin the faith portion of the show with a discussion about my recent melanoma diagnosis and then share the latest around my formation including our latest classes and progress as the new year begins. After that the tech and space parts of the podcast takeover with news around Windows Insider builds, the latest for Edge Insiders including the stable release of the new Microsoft Edge to the public. There is plenty of other tech news about software, hardware, services plus the latest from space including SpaceX’s successful IFA test. I close talking about the value of your personal integrity.
Microsoft is just a few weeks away from general availability of their new Edge web browser that is based on Chromium. These last few weeks have seen a lot of behind the scenes work happening on the sync engine for the browser which is still not as reliable as the one in Chrome. However, I have found a process that helps to clean sync up between Edge (Chromium) a little bit.
This week Microsoft expanded their preview program for the new Microsoft Edge browser based on Chromium with the addition of the Beta Preview Channel. In addition to the Developer and Canary channels, this finalizes all three preview channels for the company’s new browser on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, and macOS.
