The Microsoft Edge browser has gained the second position in the desktop browser market beating Firefox. Now recently, Microsoft announced about the new update to Edge with some new features that would be almost similar and better than Google Chrome. A feature known as “Web Capture” was spotted by Windows Latest in the Edge Canary developer that allows to take a full or cropped screenshot of a webpage and then user can copy it to clipboard or look at the preview.
Windows Latest has further elaborated that Web Capture preview screen allows to share or save the image and users would be able to draw on the screenshot and share it with their colleagues if Microsoft adds annotation.
Microsoft has confirmed about adding some new features to increase the security of Edge 86. Users will receive an alert for the Edge password monitor if the system detects a compromised password. A new option would be added that will show or hide the favorites bar from the favorites management page. Microsoft will also add policy improvements at the Edge for enterprises who use the browser for different users and applications.
Recently Microsoft started releasing Edge 85 with features that aimed to help people who were working from home because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The new features includes the ability to send Edge collections to One Note, Word and Excel and an option for synchronizing browser settings and favorites between Active directory profiles within user’s environment without the requirement of cloud sync. There is also new additions of enhanced privacy controls, performance improvements in collections and Read Aloud Feature for PDFs. It can manage notifications from sites to prevent pop ups that can plague the user while browsing.
Google Chrome has around 70% share in the market. Still people who are more concerned about privacy and security want to try Edge. Edge is based on the same Chromium browser engine like Chrome as a result of which it has similar features like Chrome. But Edge still has made some violations in user’s privacy and people are annoyed by the fact that Microsoft will make the browser available only for Windows users.
The competition between browsers is still going on but Edge is an option that people should definitely choose if they don’t like using Chrome. People can also choose to try Brave or Firefox.
