According to a report in The Verge on Tuesday, the beta version is a step in Microsoft's plan to once again offer a web browser which is useful and influential, which restores company's influence in the browser technology world.

The tech giant is also backing this up with a bug bounty security programme for the new version of Edge, with rewards up to $15,000 for security researchers who discover any vulnerabilities.

Microsoft does not have an exact release date in mind but Edge would be ready for release by early 2020.
