Microsoft Edge is Getting a Major Update (Beta Release)


Microsoft has a bad history of launching browsers that deliver subpar performances. However, we have to admit that the same cannot be said about Edge. Edge is a powerful browser that doesn’t just deliver fast web surfing experiences, it also offers a premium user experience. Talking about the user experience of Microsoft’s browser, Edge fans should be pleased to find out that a brand-new update which revamps the entire UI (user interface) has just been made available for download.

Complete Visual Update

One of the things that have contributed to Microsoft’s success is the fact that the tech giant is constantly pushing out software updates to its most important apps and software. Therefore, no one should be surprised to find out that the beta version of Edge has just received a new update which introduces a brand-new design that has been created to enhance the overall performances and user experience that Edge offers.

Improved Features

Edge is not only getting a major update in terms of visual, but the new beta update is also introducing a bundle of great features. Here are the top three ones:

  • Microsoft Search built-in to Bing, which will reduce the time spent looking for things at work by intelligently connecting an organization’s people, documents, sites, locations and conversations.
  • Internet Explorer mode, which streamlines today’s not-so-great experience of viewing the web through two different browsers by bringing Internet Explorer 11 compatibility directly into Microsoft Edge, creating one simple experience. This is an important feature for the more than 60% of worldwide organizations that use both IE as well as another browser.
  • Windows Defender Application Guard helps to isolate enterprise-defined untrusted sites, protecting the company while employees browse the Internet.

Beta Update

The last thing that we want to mention about Edge’s latest update is that since it’s available in the form of beta, the only Edge users who can download it are those who have already created a beta account. If you have yet to create one, you can click here and do it.
