By adopting Chromium, Microsoft has pushed Edge into the competitive browser space. This improved version comes packed with features while offering a familiar layout to Chrome users. These features cover the domains of privacy, targeted advertising, customizable content, and more, allowing users to have far more control over their online activity than other browsers. It’s a product that finally stands a chance to gain an audience. So if you’re looking for an alternate web browser or want to switch permanently, you should download Edge!
Introducing the new Microsoft Edge. It’s time to expect more. More privacy. More control. More productivity. More value. Browse anywhere with one continuous experience from your phone to your computer and other signed-in devices. Microsoft Edge gives you the tools to protect your privacy online with features like tracking prevention, AdBlock Plus, and InPrivate mode. Organize the web in a way that cuts through the clutter, making it easier to find, view, and manage your content on-the-go. With world-class compatibility, performance, and new features, the new Microsoft Edge is the only browser you’ll ever need.

By design, Microsoft has merged some of the best features of the previous Edge with the layout of Google Chrome. Microsoft has done this by intention to make switching a comfortable experience for all users. The UI of the browser is just like other chrome-based browsers and looks the same as Chrome, Opera, and Brave. However, there are slight differences like sharper edges, settings layout, and an option to easily opt-out of targeted advertising.

The new tab page has been carried over from the previous version of Edge. There are three layout versions – Inspirational, Informational, and Focused, and users can switch between any depending on their mood. The new tab page also pins the most visited websites below the search bar, and these sites can also be manually updated. Right beneath the pinned websites, MSN displays an endless feed of news, from all domains, that has been trending in the past 24 hours. Users can choose to customize the topics that are displayed or can turn off the feature for a more minimalistic layout.

An abundance of new extensions
The Chrome Web Store definitely has the most extensions available out of any other repository. The add-on you’re looking for will be there before anywhere else.
You must have a Chromium-powered browser for the extensions to work. Since the program falls into this category now, then you can use extensions with it too.

Same Exterior, Different Interior
Overall, it appears like Microsoft made a good choice to start using Chromium. The design of the browser still looks and feels the same, but there are so many possibilities that could come in the future.

Better for Developers
Web developers must always make sure the websites they’re coding are compatible with every major browser being used in the present. To do this, they must pay attention to the primary browser engines used to make these browsers. The engines include Gecko by Mozilla, Blink by Google, WebKit by Apple, and EdgeHTML by Microsoft.
