Back in 2018, Microsoft had announced it will be switching to the open-source Chromium framework for its Edge browser.
While the Beta version of the same was released back in October 2018, looks like Microsoft is finally ready to announce the browser officially.
It seems that the Microsoft Edge stable download link is already showing up in google search results:

Can I download the stable version of Microsoft Edge now?
Yes, a new page for Edge browser stable version is now live on the official Microsoft website. You can download and install the browser on your Windows computer.
However, do note that the browser will replace the classic Edge on your Windows computer. Once installed, you won’t be able to uninstall the Chromium-based browser for now.
When’s the official launch expected?
While Google and Firefox are gearing up to launch the newer version of their respective web browsers today, it is possible that Microsoft will also join the party with its new shining browser.
The Beta version of Edge browser has received a positive response from the early testers. Although the stable version of Edge was leaked online earlier, this is the first time the software giant is expected to make it official.
After the installation, we did not notice any changes to the logo or icon. However, being a stable release the browser will ditch the beta/dev tag inside the about section.
That said, there is no official confirmation from Microsoft about the release date yet nor Microsoft has linked to the stable channel on the Microsoft Edge insider page. We will update the post as it happens.
