5 Features of Microsoft Edge That Has It On Track to Be the #2 Browser
1. Collections: A Better Way to BookmarkBookmarks for web pages have been around since the early days of the internet. In all this time, it’s never really been improved in a big way. Users end up with folders of text-based bookmarks that are difficult to find and that never get deleted because it’s too hard to go looking for older ones. Microsoft Edge has reimagined how you save web pages with its Collections feature. Collections is a more visual way to bookmark pages. You create Collections topics and within those topics, you save your pages. Collections includes the image visual from the site, making them easier to instantly recognize. They also sit in a side panel that you can pull out by clicking the “+” button at the top of the browser. This makes saved pages much easier to find and easier to identify for deletion when they’re no longer needed.
2. Immersive Reader for Distraction-Free WebsitesDon’t you hate it when you’re trying to read the information on a web page and ads and banners throughout the page provide a distraction? The Immersive Reader in Edge can be used on any website that facilitates an immersive experience and one that makes the experience easier for those who may have vision-related challenges. You’ll see a small book page icon on the right side of the address bar when visiting a page that is compatible with this element.
