Microsoft has finally Edged its browser onto Android and iOS

The Microsoft Edge browser was till now available as Beta and Microsoft has now graduated it to Apple store making it available for everyone.

"A special thanks you goes out to each of you-hundreds of thousands of you-who downloaded, test-drove, and sent feedback on the preview apps", Microsoft's Joe Belfiore writes. The features included are Reading list, Reading view, New Tab page which shows recent news from MSN including the search bar at the top, QR scanner and the best one is "Continue on PC".

Using the Photos Companion App, users with Android and iOS devices will be able to wirelessly sync their photos with the Photos app on Windows 10. The app is meant to provide users with a smooth transition from their iPhone or iPad to their Windows 10 PC through its "continuous browsing experience", as per Apple Insider.

"But what makes Microsoft Edge really stand out is the ability to continue on your PC, which enables you to immediately open the page you're looking at right on your PC-or save it to work on later".

InPrivate: When you browse with InPrivate mode, your browsing data (like your history, temporary internet files, and cookies) isn't saved on your PC once you're done.




Microsoft launched the Edge browser for public testing in October. The latest updates recently added a lot of new features to the Microsoft Edge and also improved the overall performance. There's also dark theme.

But before you click onto other INQUIRER gems, it's worth noting that the mobile Edge browser has a trick up its sleeve.

Microsoft is getting really cozy with Android.
