Microsoft’s Edge web browser


Microsoft Edge (codenamed Spartan) is a web browser under development by Microsoft. Officially unveiled on January 21, 2015, and first publicly released as a preview on March 30, 2015, it will replace Internet Explorer as the default browser of Windows 10 PCs, smartphones and tablets.

Microsoft Edge is designed to be a lightweight web browser with a layout engine built around web standards that is “designed for interoperability with the modern web”. It removes support for legacy technologies such as ActiveX in favor of extensions and integration with other Microsoft services, such as the Cortana assistant and OneDrive, and will also offer annotation tools and a reading mode.
