Windows 11 users can now download the Edge browser from the Microsoft Store. We are still in a testing environment.
During its official presentation on June 24, Windows 11 unveiled many new features including a new version of the Microsoft Store. Its goal is to be more open with the possibility for developers to publish Win32 applications. The platform also supports UWP (Universal Windows App) and PWA (Progressive Web Apps) applications.
This promise is kept since several Win32 software are now available. We have for example Adobe Reader and VLC or Microsoft Edge. Windows Insider program users can now retrieve the browser from this source. The operation is quick, but the process starts the installation program. The latter is responsible for downloading all the data necessary for the installation. It is therefore not directly retrieved from the Microsoft Store.
Windows 11 and the Windows Store, more browsers are coming
It is likely that other browsers will be available soon. Expect Chromium solutions like Chrome, Vivaldi or Brave. For its part, Mozila has also confirmed its intention to offer Firefox through this new distribution channel.
Note that Edge is not the only Microsoft application to land on the Store, we also have Notepad and Paint. These “popular” applications have become stand-alone software that can be updated independently of the operating system.
