A week ago at Build 2015, Microsoft reported that the new Windows 10 will have its new web browser named as Microsoft Edge. Today, Microsoft launched a official blog for the Microsoft Edge web browser and more excitingly released the first beta version of the Microsoft Edge Dev website.
Microsoft Edge Dev is considered to be the alternative for the Modern.IE to help web developers make websites that will work perfectly with Edge. This is what Microsoft says developers can anticipate from the site:
- A new Platform Status page: We’ve updated StatusIE based on your feedback to make it easier to filter and find the information you are looking for.
- A Microsoft Edge change log: As we ship faster and more openly than ever, including early previews through the Windows Insider Program, we saw a need to provide an up-to-date listing of what’s new in each preview and stable release.
- A new developer FAQ: We’ve compiled the most common questions from our #AskIE chats so you can find the answers to your questions about Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10. This will be a living document – you can always reach out to @MSEdgeDev if your questions don’t appear here. Maybe we’ll add yours next!
- We’ve updated our TestDrive website, where you can find open source and interoperable demos showing off the latest web platform technologies supported by Microsoft Edge.
