Last week, we reported that Microsoft has started testing a new vertical tabs feature to select Insiders on the Canary channel. The feature is now rolling out to a subset of Dev Channel Insiders…

The new vertical tabs feature offers a bunch of benefits. First off, the functionality is ideal for 16:9 laptops and monitors, and it has been designed to perfectly aligns with this new standard. The feature allows users to stack tabs at the side of the browser and makes it easier to see valuable information at the top when browsing.

How to use the “Immersive Reading View” in the NEW Microsoft Edge

“Immersive Reading View” allows you to remove the distractions (ads, video clips, menus, etc…) on a web page so that you can focus on the article you desire to focus upon. This also comes in handy when you want to print or save just the article. Once you bring up an article (or web page) in the immersive reading view you have options to increase the font and even have the page read back to you. This is a very nice feature that is already built into the NEW Microsoft Edge web browser.

To use the “Immersive Reading Mode”, follow the below steps:

  1. After opening Microsoft Edge, go to the website that you desire to read (such as “What’s On My PC“).
  2. Look for the “Immersive Reader Icon”, located at the right side of the address bar and click on it.
  3. The web page you desire to read will now be stripped down in the immersive reader view.
  4. You can turn “off” the immersive reader view by clicking on the same icon again.

Note: If visiting a page and you do not see the “Immersive Reader Icon”, then the web page does not support this feature.

Microsoft Edge 81.0.416.72

Seeing Microsoft Edge [homepage], final release version, posted at the Download Crew. Key points I picked up from their post is Microsoft has decided to stop trying to build their own browser from scratch and moved to the Chromium framework, which is the engine that powers Google Chrome and other browsers. I can tell you, I have tested this browser and Microsoft has done an excellent job.

Edge is the release version of this new browser. Unlike Chrome, Microsoft has deployed their own account system which will eventually synchronize your data including favorites, extensions, themes and browsing history. Right now, only your favorites are synchronized.

Make Sure You Check Out “Collections” In The NEW Microsoft Edge

I am sold on Microsoft Edge. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, it will be heading your way soon; but, if you can’t wait, CLICK HERE. If you are an existing user of Microsoft Edge, make sure you check out the “Collections” feature. To access the feature, click on the “Collections Icon” on the toolbar (see below) next to the address bar. This icon will open what is called the “Collections” pane where you can create, edit and view collections of web links. For example, I am now using “Collections” when shopping, blogging, or researching a specific topic and will group my findings in individual collections.

Another, more efficient way to use “Collections” is to right mouse click on any page; and, from the menu you can start a new collection or add to an existing collection.

I am finding “Collections” to be super handy and wanted to make sure you are using it. You will not be disappointed…

Microsoft Edge becomes the second most popular desktop web browser >> Engadget

Microsoft’s gamble on a Chromium-based Edge browser appears to have paid off, at least in the short term. Bleeping Computer noted that Edge is now the second most popular desktop web browser based on usage, with NetMarketShare giving the software nearly 7.6 percent of the market in March, eclipsing a declining Mozilla Firefox with almost 7.2 percent. Edge is still far behind Chrome’s 68.5 percent, but that’s no mean feat for a browser that wasn’t even three months old.

How To Get The NEW Microsoft Edge NOW…

I have been testing and using the NEW Microsoft Edge, which is a Chromium based browser, for months along with Google Chrome, Vivaldi, and Brave (all which are based off the Chromium browser engine). I have come to the conclusion that Microsoft Edge is the browser of choice at this point based on reliability, speed, smoothness of operation, privacy, security. low memory resources and added features. I am going to say that 99% of all browser extensions I have installed from the Google Chrome Store have worked without a hitch. Microsoft Edge, in my opinion, is the top dog browser at this point. My second choice would be Vivaldi…

Microsoft will be rolling out Edge to all computers, but you can get it now.  Simply visit the link below and follow the instructions.

Introducing the new Microsoft Edge

The new Microsoft Edge is based on Chromium and was released on January 15, 2020. It is compatible with all supported versions of Windows, and macOS. Downloading the browser will replace the legacy version of Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 PCs. With speed, performance, best in class compatibility for websites and extensions, and built-in privacy and security features, it’s the only browser you’ll ever need.
