Microsoft Edge initially planned to replace Internet Explorer as Project Spartan was introduced along Windows 10 on April 29, 2015. Internet Explorer however is still a part of Windows 10. It's designed to work on the latest operating systems and satisfies the user's demands. The new Browser is packed with many useful additional features as well along with better battery life, performance, and security.

Better battery life, performance, and security

Microsoft Edge didn't seem to compromise in any sphere. You enjoy the best battery life along with excellent performance and remain secure. Battery life in fact seems to be extended when you compare your browsing with other battery expensive browsers. The browser is specially designed for windows 10 and is one of the safest browsers.

  • Work and Play

The browser is ideal to do both as users can enjoy both ways using the built-in features on iOS, Android and any device having Windows 10. The following are the built-in learning tools integrated for your work:

  • Simplified Reading

The Reading view helps you focus and clear away the clutter by presenting only the text in the document (webpages, books, and PDFs). Not only you can view clutter-free information, but also are provided with Clutter-Free printing. The books at Microsoft Store can be synced to any device as well that means you can continue with your favorite book on any device.

PDFs are no more simple pages of text and images/ Now you can do more with PDFs by listening to the text, customizing different views and taking notes. Signing with your handwriting to Print webpages using the digital pen from Microsoft Edge without ads, and autofill forms save time and make the task easier.

  • Easier reading

The learning-focused browser aims at increasing the productivity of its users. The Line Focus tool is similar to a reading ruler that highlights lines of text. It helps increase attention and is better for th eyes as well.

  • Speech

Many people get confused with parts of speech. Students who are new to this can use Microsoft edge to become better at identifying them with the Grammar Tools.  Nouns, verbs, and adjectives can be identified with different colors.

  • Dictionary

As grammarly also simplifies the task of knowing the meaning of a word by highlighting it through a double click on the word. It results in popping its meaning around the word. Similarly, Microsoft Edge defines the word for you where you don't need an internet connection as well.

The following are the features for that support another set of increasing user demands:

  • Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android

As offered in most of the browsers, this browser also offers the same Sync option where regardless of the device, your content gets synced and continue/access from an other device.

  • Xbox

With Microsoft's products such as the Xbox one. Currently, and most probably forever, Microsoft Edge is the only Browser available. The browser is easily used with the controller as well, although initially, you need to familiarize. Getting back to your favorite sites is now even easier.

  • HoloLens and Mixed Reality

Microsoft Edge is the only browser that supports virtual reality experiences on the web for HoloLens and Windows Mixed Reality.

  • Amp up your browsing experience

Microsoft Edge is the only browser that supports both 4K Ultra HD and Dolby Audio, giving you a crystal-clear, cinematic experience

There are a couple of features that stand out as well:

  • Ending tab chaos
    Preview, group, and save tabs. The browser has an interesting feature of previewing the tab as well that can be turned off as some might find it irritating. You can also now Quickly find, manage, and open tabs you set aside without leaving the page you’re currently on.
  • Cortana
    Cortana is there to instantly answer and provide tips. Many users don't find cortana pretty helpful as it's too irresponsive on many devices. With newer Windows Updates, the issue might get solved.
  • One place
    Use the Hub for quick and easy access to your favorite sites, reading list, what’s in your history, recent downloads, and more.
