Microsoft Replaces Internet Explorer with Windows 10 ‘Edge’ Browser


Windows Explorer has been lagging behind other browsers for years. Now Windows is attempting to solve that with the release of the new Windows 10 ‘Edge’ Browser. The new browser was announced at Microsoft’s build conference. A video preview marketing the browser shows that it has been developed so that users can add notes and enjoy increased productivity when searching the net. It also depicts fun browsing with drawn smiley faces highlighting the excitement over its user-friendly functions.  Edge will have built-in Cortana support for voice commands, as well as reader, note-taking and sharing features. We also know that the browser’s rendering engine is called EdgeHTML and that it will be the default browser released with Windows 10.

Although no full-size screen shots or additional information has yet been released, we will likely receive updates in the coming months. Windows 10 is scheduled to be released in July and will be available as a free upgrade to Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users. With its release, we will finally get to test the Edge browser to see if it fulfils all of Microsoft’s promises.
