You can download Microsoft Edge Dev from the official Edge Insider website. If you already use the Dev Channel, head to edge://settings/help to install the latest release. However, it is worth noting that many users report hangs and crashes after updating to version 115.0.1880.1, so it is better not to use Edge Dev or Canary as your primary browser.

Microsoft plans to release Edge 115 to all users in the Stable Channel on the week of July 20, 2023. Insiders in the Beta Channel will get it next week.
