Microsoft Edge now available as a stable release for Android and iOS

Above MS Edge

Having been a beta-only affair for quite a while, you can download the Microsoft Edge browser for iPhone straight from the App Store. Testers had to sign-up to get special access to the new browser, but Microsoft is making both the Android and iOS versions generally available today.

Running Edge on Android and iOS lets you sync your favorites and reading list from your desktop. Are you a fan of the Windows 10 version? Edge's only unique capability is the option of opening your current webpage on another device. But what makes Microsoft Edge really stand out is the ability to continue on your PC, which enables you to immediately open the page you're looking at right on your PC-or save it to work on later. The Hub View also collects the user's history and ebooks, so it makes content management easy.

InPrivate: When you browse with InPrivate mode, your browsing data (like your history, temporary internet files, and cookies) isn't saved on your PC once you're done. Thanks to the beta, Microsoft even added some new features, including what it calls Roaming Passwords. The overall design of the browser is similar between platforms, including a dynamic New Tab page with news headlines and an optional dark theme.




Some users will have to wait a while before the Edge app arrives in their region, however.

Apart from English, the Edge browser is available in Chinese, and French. And Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android is another step in that journey. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, but it requires iOS 9 or later iterations of Apple's mobile operating system.
