Microsoft Edge Browser To be released on Android and iOS Devices
Incase you don’t know, Microsoft has its own internet browsing application software for windows called Edge Browser. The Edge browser was built for Windows OS only but recently, Microsoft has announced the Edge browser is coming to Android and iOS smartphones. A Beta testing for the app has already been started by Microsoft for Windows Insiders to try out the Egde browser on mobile.
Microsoft Edge browser will have the ability to push pages to and fro between the windows and mobile platforms for easy use between the two platforms. This means you can browse any page you want on your phone and it will also appear on your windows as recent pages. Edge will be able to synchronize bookmarks and history between the two platforms.
The only downside to the Edge browser is you won’t be able synchronize tabs for now with Edge browser as you would normally do with Google Chrome. I hope the next update would fix that.
However, Microsoft Edge has a few advantages on Windows 10 PCs over Chrome, Firefox and other web browsers. Since Microsoft owns Windows OS as well, they designed the Edge browser to be very compatible with the Windows OS. Features are it’s cleaner, it works fast with HTML5 content and it’s generally better for your laptop’s battery life compared to its peers. Also, It is also catching up in terms of browser plug-ins.
Finally, Microsoft Edge works best with Windows Precision drivers for your laptop’s trackpad bringing the smoothest multitouch zoom and gestures on Windows 10.
