Microsoft’s new browser Edge adds vertical tabs and tracking prevention


Internet Explorer, the butt of every petty joke, has finally been killed by Microsoft. Its new browser Edge looks promising and comes with a lot more in the package.

Microsoft’s new browser, Edge, comes with much more promising features and as a worthy competitor to the likes of Firefox, Chrome, and Opera. The Edge team is about to launch a new feature that is sure to turn heads.

It has been announced today that the company will bring forth enhancements like vertical tabs, tracking prevention and password monitoring along with a mobile version of its Collections feature.

Edge, built on Google’s open-source Chromium, will allow the adventurous users to test its new features in its Insider program. The vertical tabs in Edge will allow users to stack tabs at the side of the browser instead of the usual long tab list at the top. It is ideal for 16:9 laptops and monitors.

The users will be able to scroll through a list that shows the favicon and the name of each website opened. This will help in the prevention of the pain of closing the wrong tab.

Another useful and unique feature offered is called Collections. Users would be able to drag the articles being researched into the Collections area, the information will be rearranged by Edge and ready for quick reference or printing. As per Microsoft, the mobile version of Edge will be coming soon. Then there’s Tracking prevention that lets the users choose from three presets of security measures as per their preferences.

Password Monitor will let a user know if their credentials have been shared or exposed on the dark web. Finally, to provide a distraction-free mode to the users there’s Immersions Reader so that they can concentrate on reading articles.
