Microsoft Edge launches support for iPad and Android tablets

The debate over which browser is the best has been going for nearly as long as the internet has been around. Though Microsoft's Internet Explorer was once the butt of many jokes, the company has been doing some neat things with Microsoft Edge, which was introduced alongside Windows 10. If, by chance, Microsoft has managed to win you over with the features in Edge, then here's a bit of good news: It's available on more platforms beginning today.

iPad users rejoice: Microsoft Edge browser beta now available

iPad users rejoice: Microsoft Edge browser beta now available

Microsoft's Edge browser has been around for a while now, but it continues to be one of the least-used options for surfing the web. That doesn't mean Microsoft hasn't been trying to make it as widely available as possible, however, and now the browser can add another device to its roster: Apple's iPad. Edge is now available on the tablet, albeit only as a beta.

Microsoft just made a terrible decision to force Edge on users

Microsoft just made a terrible decision to force Edge on users

Microsoft looks set to skate into some serious negative feedback, with the decision to force its Edge browser as the only way to view links in email. The change was previewed in the most recent Windows 10 Insider Preview, with Microsoft saying that it's hoping to get feedback as to how well the system works.

Microsoft Edge claims once again to be faster, safer, better

Microsoft Edge claims once again to be faster, safer, better

Who says the browser wars are over? This time, though, there’s a pinch of fancy marketing added to spice up the competition and drum up the hype. Ever since Microsoft launched its completely new and “not related to Internet Explorer at all” web browser, it has been touting Edge’s battery efficiency with highly publicized but not completely public tests. And now it’s back again, pitting Edge against the latest Firefox and Chrome versions, singing that same mantra, and trying to get back in the running in the web browser race.

Microsoft Edge on Android and iOS is now available for all

Microsoft Edge on Android and iOS is now available for all

One of the advantages of using the same browser across all your devices is that you mostly have a consistent experience, not to mention possibly syncing bookmarks, browsing history, and the like. If, however, you’ve fallen head over heels for Microsoft’s latest web browser, you’re out of luck on mobile. Until now, that is. Microsoft has just taken off the “Preview” label on the mobile version of Microsoft Edge, giving iOS and Android the ability to sync browsing data with their Windows 10 PCs.

Windows 10 to get wireless file sharing, Edge mute tab

Windows 10 to get wireless file sharing, Edge mute tab

One of the good things about Microsoft’s new “Windows as a Service” thrust is that you don’t have to wait for ages before you can get your hands on significant new features. Sure, you might have to wait a year or even just half for the next Windows 10 update, but that’s still lots faster than previous Windows versions. The Fall Creators Update was just released a month ago and fans will probably already be looking forward to the next one, which brings offline file sharing and more functionality to the Edge web browser.

Microsoft Edge on Android arrives: Here’s how to get it

Microsoft Edge on Android arrives: Here’s how to get it

Precisely one week ago today, Microsoft announced that preview builds of its Edge browser were coming to iOS and Android. The preview was available on iOS later that day, but not on Android. Instead, Microsoft promised that the Android version was coming soon, but failed to give an actual launch date.

Microsoft Edge is finally coming to iOS and Android

Microsoft Edge is finally coming to iOS and Android

For all the problems Windows 10 Mobile may have, one of the advantages it offers over iOS and Android was deeper compatibility with Windows on PC. With Windows 10 Mobile left largely unsupported by app developers, Windows PC users who have been forced to iOS and Android have been missing some of that extra compatibility. That'll be changing soon, at least for folks who use Microsoft Edge as their main browser within Windows 10.

Microsoft Edge’s battery life claims get an independent test

Microsoft Edge’s battery life claims get an independent test

Although it probably had the biggest share in the web browser market, the bloat that was known as Internet Explorer soon dragged Microsoft's name down to the Internet Hall of Shame. Given than notoriety, it almost seemed that its new browser, Microsoft Edge, had an unfair disadvantage. Unsurprisingly, the company put its marketing and advertising machine into high gear, including tests that claim superior battery life for the Edge. However, most, if not all, of these proofs and counter-proofs were made by browser makers themselves. Fortunately, Linus Tech Tips decided it was time to have an independent test done, and the results might surprise you.

Microsoft Edge browser’s upcoming features teased

Microsoft Edge browser’s upcoming features teased

Microsoft desperately needs to make people forget about its ugly past in the web browser market. That’s why it’s putting its marketing engine hard at work to promote the hell out of the new and fancy Microsoft Edge web browser. If you do ignore compatibility with sites that still need the ancient Internet Explorer, Edge does offer a more modern and, perhaps more importantly, cleaner browsing experience. And it’s about to get even better in the Windows 10 Creators Update! Or at least that’s the tune Microsoft is singing its latest teaser for its fledgling browser.

Windows 10 Creators Update will bring these nifty features

Windows 10 Creators Update will bring these nifty features

If the speculation is correct, Microsoft will be rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update by April. But even before that date, Windows Insiders are already being given an early treat with a large Build 15002 that was just dropped on them. Even Microsoft calls it “BIG”, and it isn’t exaggerating either. Microsoft is generously giving non-Insiders a glimpse of what’s to come, giving Windows something to whet their appetites while they wait for the real BIG update to land in three or so months.

Microsoft Edge browser won’t run Flash by default

Microsoft Edge browser won’t run Flash by default

Web browser makers are waging war against Flash, pushing it ever closer to its demise. Microsoft, who hasn’t been taken seriously in that space for until recently, doesn’t want t be left behind. Available to Windows Insiders first and then coming to the Windows 10 Creator’s Update next year, Microsoft Edge will take a stronger approach to decreasing Flash’s use by requiring users to click to even load Flash content instead of running them by default and then making users pause or stop them.
