Last year December Microsoft had announced a project named Microsoft Chromium. This project is about entirely rebuilding the edge browser using Google Chrome’s code-based. At first look, the new beta version of Microsoft Chromium looks similar to Google’s Chrome. If you love to browse in the Chrome browser then you will love the new edge browser too.
At first glance, the UI looks the same as the old edge browser. But, it has a more customized option than the older version. Search bar with the frequently used website, newsfeed, and browser wallpapers are some of the customizable options as in the Chrome browser. There is also a user profile button at a top right corner which is new to edged users. Through this new user profile, you can manage your profile and notification setting. You can import your data from other browsers in the new edge browser. Another new feature added in the edge is Extensions feature which is described below:
If you are the user of Microsoft Edge then this might be new to you because there are no options for extension in old versions of Microsoft Edge. Now in a new version of Edge, you can see an extension option where you can download the various extensions. If there are not use extensions in Microsoft extension then you can go to Chrome’s extension store and get it from there.
New Edge can load the pages pretty instantly, it doesn’t hang or lag like the old version of the Microsoft Edge browser. Regarding touch support, the new Edge browser feels the same as in the old version of Microsoft Edge. The new version of Microsoft Edge is very stable than the old version.
Another interesting feature is that you can download web apps in the browser.
