The Browser Company launched the first arc on its Windows client as a beta version. The company announced that it has enrolled the first group of customers for its Windows client which is now available in beta version.

According to the company, it will onboard more beta participants throughout the month and rapidly speed up invite roll-outs in January. There are over 500,000 people in the queue.

The company did not disclose whether the Windows client shared all features with the Mac client. However, it stated that it is currently working on porting features such as Peek (hovering preview of a webpage). As a result, some functionalities may be missing at launch.

The company founders Josh Miller and Hursh Agrawal discussed last year about developing and releasing a Windows version in 2023. The company released a Swift-based arc browser for Windows just a few days after left in the year.
