Microsoft hopes that Edge Chromium will become a powerful browser with faster performance and is safer to use. In addition to advanced features that make it easier for users, Microsoft also provides security features that aim to deal with phishing attacks, malicious extensions, and various illegal attempts to obtain sensitive information from users.
The difference between Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer is in the simpler interface and the support for maximum customization with the emergence of themes, extensions and add-ons like other browsers at this time.
Because it is made using the Chromium source, users will be able to use Chrome extensions like the Google Chrome browser . In addition, the menu and settings are similar to the browser made by Google.
Microsoft Edge also supports reading mode. Users can read content comfortably without being distracted by other content that often appears on the page. In addition, users can also read content on the page offline and save it on the device you are using.
Many users get annoyed when reading PDF content on certain pages, but other pages appear. Therefore, Microsoft made a PDF Reader feature that can be used to read PDF files directly through a browser without the need to download the PDF file first.
Cortana Assistant is a flagship feature of Microsoft Edge, because other browsers don't yet have this powerful feature. This feature allows Microsoft's personal assistant to help users surf the internet with just voice commands. Cortana Assistant has been integrated with the Edge browser, so users can execute commands only with the spoken voice.
Microsoft Edge is the only browser that supports streaming Netflix 4K. Not Chrome, not Firefox , not Opera , not Safari. This is due to the additional DRM features available only with the Creators Update. Of course, you must be satisfied with the following conditions. Apart from requiring Windows 10 with the Creators Update, your PC must have an Intel Kaby Lake processor, and you must also register for the Netflix 4K fee.
