Microsoft Edge Update – Software Speed and User Security Improvements


Considering that Microsoft, which is one of the world’s biggest tech companies, is in charge of Edge then it should come as no surprise that the browser is updated on a daily basis with software improvements. Microsoft was quite unlucky in terms of browsers since most people decided to opt instead of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox but now, Microsoft keeps enhancing the performances of Edge and thus, making it a much better choice than the aforementioned browsers.

The latest update for Edge sports the version number and Microsoft is rolling it out via official OTA (over the air) channels right now. With that said, today we are going to check out everything there is to know about it.

Microsoft Edge Update

If you enjoy using Edge in order to surf the web, then we are advising you to keep your smartphone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network throughout the day so that you can be among the first ones to download the new update.

Alternatively, the update can also be manually downloaded in the form of APK (Android Package Kit). The trick to installing this type of updates is that APK releases are compatible only with Android-powered smartphones that have the “Unknown Sources” option enabled in their Settings panel.

Faster Performances

The new update doesn’t come with any features and instead, it introduces a bunch of software tweaks that are squashing various bugs and increasing the overall speed of the mobile browser.

We know that software tweaks are not as exciting as new features, but having a much faster and smoother user experience is always better than new features.

Improved User Security

The last thing that we want to mention about Edge’s latest update is the fact that it also optimizes the browser’s software in order to improve the overall user security. Therefore, Edge fans should feel safer browsing the web after installing the update.
