Edge browser

A Web browser from Microsoft that debuted with Windows 10 in 2015. Code named Spartan, Edge superseded the venerable Internet Explorer (IE) introduced with Windows 98, although IE is still included in Windows 10. With the capability of marking up a Web page with a stylus and the integration of a virtual assistant (see Cortana) and cloud storage (see OneDrive), Edge became the default browser on PCs, Xbox and Windows Phone.

A New Chromium Version
In January 2020, Microsoft released a new version of Edge based on the same code as Google's Chrome browser (see Chromium). Available for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android, the new Edge offers greater privacy control, improved malware detection and support for 4K Netflix streaming. Extensions for the Chrome browser also work in Edge. See Windows 10 and Internet Explorer.
