The difference between the different release channels is unknown for the time being, but my guess is that Canary (Fast Ring?) will get more frequent releases and will be less stable than Edge Beta (Release Preview?), with Edge Dev (Slow Ring?) offering the best of both sides. With Chromium at its core, it is perhaps no surprise that this version of Edge bears more than a passing resemblance to Google Chrome.
One former Microsoft intern even claims that the main reason for the switch is because Google's constant updating was breaking compatibility with the EdgeHTML system, causing Microsoft to "cave in".
While the extension isn't really useful at the moment, it will serve as a single portal for users to check recent announcements, new features, as well as known and fixed issues for users in the preview version of Chromium Edge. Later on in the process you can choose a style for the default new tab page.
While the app doesn't now hold any data such as announcements or ongoing issues, the fact that it's already available for download suggests that Microsoft will likely be releasing the Chromium-based Edge very soon.
Because yes, once Microsoft Edge completes the transition to Chromium, it should support absolutely all Google Chrome extensions, just like all the other browsers running on the same engine.

The build is far from finished - a lot of the features from "old Edge" which will be migrated are still in development - using a stylus to annotate pages, for example.
Redmond's developers have also described how they want to improve Chrome's scrolling performance in a bid to make it as smooth and consistent as it is in Edge.
Back in December previous year, Microsoft confirmed it would be moving the default Windows 10 browser's rendering engine from EdgeHTML to the open source Chromium base used by the likes of Google Chrome, Opera and Vivaldi. Not necessarily by the application itself, but by how Microsoft sees the future of browsing overall. This new version changes all of that.
While it was previously unclear how the new Chromium version of Edge would be designed or what features it would boast, The Verge has now provided an exclusive first look at the software.
