Privacy-focused Brave browser launched late last year after almost four years of being in the works. The browser is based on the Chromium open-source project and joins the likes of Microsoft Edge that is built on that platform. However, while Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft’s offering currently support ARM64 PCs natively in the stable channels, Brave does not.

One of the issues with Windows on ARM PCs is a lack of native ARM64 applications. Although they do support x86 app emulation, the performance boost on native apps is always worthwhile. The latest app to join the ARM64 is Tweeten, a popular Twitter client that's based on TweetDeck.

WinDjView for Windows RTMicrosoft launched its new Chromium-based Edge browser back in January. At launch, however, the stable builds of the new browser did not include native support for Windows on ARM devices.

Windows on ARMIt's Wednesday, which means it's time for a new Windows 10 build to be released for Insiders in the Fast ring. As usual for the past few weeks, build 19559 doesn't come with any new features, and focuses mostly on fixing some issues and making smaller improvements.

Windows on ARMIn late 2018, we talked about the benefits of the second generation of Windows on Arm laptops, which use the Snapdragon 850 SoC built on Arm Cortex technology. An Arm-commissioned benchmarking paper showed how these 2-in-1 laptops were ahead of the competition on battery life, instant on, connectivity and thermal management.

Microsoft quietly released a major new update to the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center app. And with the latest update, Microsoft is adding support for ARM64 devices (via Neowin). That means if you have a device with an ARM processor, you will now be able to use the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center app. That includes Microsoft’s new Surface Pro X, of course.

WinDjView for Windows RTToday is a big day for Microsoft's Edge browser, which is now officially available as a Chromium-based browser instead of the old UWP version that ships with Windows 10. However, the initial release has some significant limitations, like the absence of history and extension syncing, and the lack of support for ARM64 devices.

Windows on ARMThis is just a quick blog post about the experience on running the Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2) on Windows 10 on ARM, which comes on devices like the Surface Pro X. Since I got many questions from developers and IT Pros about the Surface Pro X and how it can handle different workflows on Windows 10 on ARM, I decided to write a blog post, on how you can install WSL 2 on Windows 10 on ARM and the Surface Pro X.

WinDjView for Windows RTMicrosoft's Chromium-based Edge browser has evolved quite a bit since the company first started testing the browser with Insiders, but one major feature that's been lacking is support for ARM chipsets. After a few months of testing, support for ARM finally landed in the Canary channel a few weeks ago, and now, it's also in the Dev channel.

Windows on ARMOne of the issues with ARM-based Windows 10 PCs is gaming. There are few native ARM64 games, and they don't run well in emulation. x64 games don't run at all. There's good news though.

WinDjView for Windows RTWindows 10's built-in Edge browser (now informally called Legacy Edge) has always natively supported ARM64, or at least since Windows on ARM was a thing. But up until now, those testing out Microsoft's new Chromium-based Edge browser haven't been able to run it natively on ARM; they could only get the x86 version running in emulation. Now, testers can finally use native ARM64 Edge Chromium.

WinDjView for Windows RTWith Microsoft's launch of the Surface Pro X last week, questions were once again raised about the apps that can run on it. The answer is that like any Windows 10 on ARM PC, it can run native ARM (ARM and ARM64) apps, and it can run emulated 32-bit Intel (x86) apps.

Windows on ARMThis week at its Ignite 2019 conference in Orlando, Microsoft announced the general availability date of its new Chromium-based Edge browser, which has been in public testing since April. Beginning on January 15, it will be considered generally available, meaning that it will start updating users to its new browser.

One of the many surprises Microsoft sprung on us at its October event was the Surface Pro X, a new ultraportable tablet powered by an ARM-based processor. With its sleek design and gorgeous display, the Surface Pro X appears to be a compelling alternative to the Surface Pro 7 and potentially even a strong competitor to Apple's iPad Pro.

Windows on ARMLast December at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit, the company announced that both Chromium and Firefox are coming to Windows on ARM, running natively on ARM64.
