    So apparently this has arrived in the Canary channel.

    I was able to get the Edge beta on the day I got the device though. I thought that was native.

    Does this mean the one I installed was actually not the ARM native one?

    So I'm guessing if you were to download the latest Canary version it would auto detect that you're on an ARM device?!?

    The Canary build will autodetect ARM and install that version. The Edge browser preinstalled is the old edge browser and is native Arm code, if you were using previous Chromium based betas they were running in emulation. The Canary build is a Chromium based Edge browser that is native ARM as well. You can also confirm the correct version is installed by visiting the About page for the browser once installed, it should now list '64-bit' Hopefully that helps clarify a little! I wonder what is causing crashing? After the Windows Updates yesterday I started having issues with Firefox and removed it, but so far this seems ok.

    So it's still crashing. After about a minute browsing it just closes.

    Anyone else with a problem?

    So I signed out of my profile and it is OK right now not crashing.

    How to confirm this is the ARM one?

    This is what I get under edge settings >about Microsoft Edge.

    Well the formula is easy, if it is 64 bit and it runs on the machine is must be ARM64 because the other 64 bit version (aka x64) would not run. Therefore the previous version, which need emulation, must have been 32 bit.

    Surely if it runs without issue then that means it is compatible?

    True.

    Didn't want to make any assumptions because I also assumed wrong when I downloaded the Edge Beta. (It ran but didn't realize it was in emulation)

    This Canary just flies on the X!
