Automatic update from the old to the new Edge

Even before the new Edge was released in January, Microsoft had announced that it would be rolled out via Windows Update. I had predicted that Microsoft would take a long time to do this. I didn't expect it to take that long. The colleagues at Deskmodder have now noticed that Microsoft has released the support entry for update KB4559309 , which replaces the previous support entries KB4541301 and KB4541302. We are now talking about an automatic update. But when and how it rolls out is not there.

I am a little surprised by the fact that this update should come for all Windows 10 versions from 1803. I had previously assumed that the new version 2004 would be limited, but that would delay the rollout even further. Microsoft is a little too careful for my taste. The new Edge has become awesome, there's no reason to hold it back. Open fire!

In doing so, they wanted to conserve both their own resources and those of customers in order to be able to concentrate on more important things.
