Microsoft Edge for Android and iOS launches out of preview

Microsoft Edge browser now available for all Android and iOS users

Less than two months ago, Microsoft released the Edge browser beta for Android with the promise to ease the transition from PC to phone and back.

I just wrote about the recent update that removed the preview tag yesterday, but neglected to mention the status change.

The browser sports a similar layout and features to the desktop version of Edge, including bookmarks, history, and the Hub.

Trump not moving United States embassy to Jerusalem for now
Officials said the plans weren't final, however, and the USA was working through additional legal and policy considerations. A number of other presidents similarly campaigned on a promise to move the embassy but reneged in office.

The launch of Edge for iOS and Android comes as Microsoft moves away from developing its own mobile operating system.

Microsoft Edge for iOS is now available for users in the U.S., U.K., China and France in the respective languages of those countries.

Microsoft Edge's biggest feature is the ability to push mobile webpages to your desktop computer, resuming your browsing where you left off. Microsoft Edge is designed for Windows 10 users to browse the web how they need to, wherever they are, without disrupting their flow. Many of Edge's features are created to offer a seamless experience when used with a Windows 10 PC. There's a silver lining however, since Microsoft has already confirmed that tab syncing support is coming to iOS devices in the near future - possibly next year. Passwords and login information also sync across PC and iPhone, while there's a built-in QR code reader as well. The private browsing feature won't retain history items, temporary Internet files and cookies. With most of the kinks ironed out, the finished version adds a couple of new features to the existing set available since the first preview came out. This gives Edge's user interface an alternative appearance. Similarly, the Android version is available in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada (English and French), China, France and India (English). And Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android is another step in that journey.
