Microsoft announces Edge browser for iOS and Android

Microsoft announces Edge browser for iOS and Android

Reliance on Safari and Chrome Technologies The new Edge apps use the core rendering technologies of Apple and Google's browsers, rather than Microsoft's EdgeHTML rendering technology, Lyndersay indicated.

Microsoft is rolling out beta versions of its Edge browser for iOS and Android. "Go anywhere and pick up where you left off by easily moving content between your mobile device and your Windows 10 PC*", explains Microsoft. This feature enables users to transfer a web page to their Windows 10 supported desktop to continue reading or signing up. However, you will have to use Windows 10 on your PC with Microsoft's Edge browser as your primary browser to do that. Microsoft Edge is a web browser that will allow you to seamlessly transfer from your smartphone to your laptop or computer.

The preview, for Android and iOS, is limited to US English for now, but the company says it'll expand language options later in the programme. Consistent with our engineering approach for Windows 10, we'll be listening to feedback throughout our preview and will update the apps regularly with fixes and new features. Firefox is third with 12.85 percent, and Microsoft Edge is the fourth popular browser with just 5.15 percent market share. Apart from this, you will also get a send button which will let you continue browsing a website on your connected Windows PC. "These two (Edge for iOS and Android) apps will knit all this together for all our customers".

Apart from that, you will be also able to access your favourites, history, reading list and ebooks from your PC on your phone.

As part of Microsoft's recent Skype overhaul, it changed how the app handled the online status of users.

The Microsoft Launcher is now in beta at present, though a gold standard release is expected very soon.

In the same post, Microsoft also unveiled that its "Arrow Launcher" project for Android is being updated and renamed to Microsoft Launcher. The launcher is based on Microsoft's Fluent Design and is customisable. It's also now in US-English only, but Microsoft says language support will expand as the preview continues.
