Microsoft is pausing Edge updates in the stable channel due to the coronavirus

Earlier this week, Google announced that it's pausing feature updates in the stable channel for Chrome, and now Microsoft is following suit. As of right now, the firm is holding back the update for Edge 81, which is already in testing in the Beta channel.

The move is unsurprising, given the COVID-19 coronavirus and the amount of people that are working from home at this time. As Google also promised, Microsoft will still be releasing security and stability updates as they're needed.

It's likely that we're going to hear similar announcements from other software vendors, or at least for web browsers that are based on Chromium. That includes Brave, Vivaldi, and a bunch more.

Naturally, there's no actual date for when updates are going to start rolling out again, because it's unclear when this will all be over. As it stands right now, Edge Beta is testing Edge 81, while the Dev and Canary branches are testing Edge 82.
