Since then, the program has gone from strength to strength, picking up several unique features along the way that not only separate it from the competition, but also make it one of the most performant browsers around.
And to show just how much work has gone behind the scenes, Microsoft shared a landmark moment for Edge by confirming that a total of 1,000 builds have been compiled since the initial announcement of the engine switch to Chromium.
These builds have gone through both the Edge Dev and Canary channels:
Greetings, Insiders! Dev channel update to version 95.0.1000.0 is going out today! 🎉 1000 builds have now gone through Dev and Canary, and Josh goes over the IE mode site list syncing and more in this week's build. You can read on here: https://t.co/u7ArMf0HLT pic.twitter.com/zfZBHsEizu

Congratulations are in order!
To mark the occasion, the company also pushed out the weekly Edge Dev build in the preview program, that being the clean version 95.0.1000.0. Since this is one of the first Edge 95 builds, there is nothing major in this release.
Save for a couple of fixes here, and resolution of some crashes there.
Speaking of resolution, though, a number of known issues from the past months still persist.
Even though we just hit this impressive milestone, problems with Kaspersky Internet Suit, and like issues with ad-blocking extensions on YouTube, tabs and extensions crashing, duplicate favorites, wobbly scrolling, and more are yet to be taken care of.
How about a little action here too, eh, Microsoft?
