Edge Chromium official version will not support ARM, there is no historical synchronization extension at launch

Earlier this week, Microsoft announced the official launch time and new Edge browser icon based on Chromium. Edge Chromium was first available for download in April and it's for Insider users, but in January 2020, the browser will launch the final version. However, some features will be removed on this version.

Although Microsoft has released Surface Pro X with ARM processors, Edge Chromium will not support ARM64 when it is officially launched. The reason for this is an error on the ARM architecture.

Even so, Microsoft still plans to offer Edge Chromium for ARM in the future. However, the lack of ARM64 support in Edge may worry customers who are using Surface Pro with ARM processors.

The next issue that will affect most users is the lack of historical synchronization and extension sync. However, the aforementioned features may still be included in the Dev and Canary versions, but will not be available in the first stable release, which will be available in January 2020. Luckily, the synchronization feature Passwords, used by many users will be present.

Edge Chromium will be officially released on January 15, 2020. The application will be updated via Windows Update and will replace the old Edge browser.
