Last week at Build 2015, Microsoft announced that the final name for its new Windows 10 web browser would be Microsoft Edge. Today, the company revealed a new official Edge blog and, more importantly, launched the first beta version of the Microsoft Edge Dev site.
Microsoft Edge Dev is the replacement for Modern.IE to help web developers create sites that will work best with Edge. Here's what Microsoft says developers can expect 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.
Microsoft is in the middle of holding its first Microsoft Edge Dev Summit in California, and you can watch the live stream from the event right now on Channel 9. The summit will end on Wednesday, May 6.
