About Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge is the newest official browser by the hands of Microsoft. Microsoft's Edge web browser has some nifty tab tools, aces JavaScript benchmarks, and has a clean, minimal interface. It even works as an ebook and PDF reader.

Microsoft Edge Review

Microsoft Edge is a successor to the famous Internet Explorer. Microsoft Edge is the only browser to earn a perfect score on the HTML5Accessibility browser benchmark, and we’re hoping to bring those contributions to the Chromium project and improve web experiences for all users.

The Edge on Android surprisingly does not use EdgeHTML engine to load pages but instead uses Chrome’s Blink engine and is built on the Chromium project. The performance of the application is very good and the pages do load quite quickly. The interface is similar to Chrome. Microsoft Edge provides a seamless browsing experience by syncing the content and data across the devices The App has a powerful inbuilt Adblocker by Adblock Plus which can be switched on in the settings.

As might be expected, Microsoft Edge is tailored to providing all the features you need from a high calibre browser. Keep all your tabs open. Browse in incognito mode. Manage your bookmarks. Switch your default browser. Customize your interface, etc. It's all here.

Other unique features include: marking pages to read them offline, and the option to turn on 'Reading Mode' with just a quick tap. Whenever you hit this button (located towards the top right of your screen) you'll switch over to an adapted version of your content, making for much more comfortable reading.
