Last week, when Microsoft announced its Edge browser for Android, it also revealed that the company has chose to give a new look and name to its already existing Arrow Launcher. Although Microsoft Edge has more than 330 million monthly active users but even if a user opens the browser once in a month, it counts as an active user. Before Windows 10, the default browser of Windows was Internet Explorer, Microsoft killed it when it launched Windows 10 but could not do well with Edge as well.
The app doesn't use Microsoft's EdgeHTML rendering engine; instead, it uses Google's Blink engine. What that means again is that you might come across bugs and instability that could affect its performance.
If you use Microsoft Edge on your Desktop/Laptop as your default browser this is great as you will be able to sync your bookmarks, history, reading list etc across devices.
As you browse through these screenshots a lot of things will ber very familiar as they match up nicely with Microsoft Edge on the Windows 10 desktop.
If you are a Windows 10 user, then you may be knowing that Microsoft Edge browser is there in the Windows PC for a while and a large number of a majority is already used to it. The key feature that is anticipated in the new app is its "Continue on PC" option that will enable users to send web pages to a PC, restore earlier pages and also resume from the last page.
So you can head over to the Google Play Store and grab the app to get started.
While the browser war intensifies, Microsoft can only continue to push its Edge browser further across popular operating systems if it wants to remain relevant and not be pushed out of the market.
The app is in preview, which means that more features are on the way. The preview was available on iOS later that day, but not on Android.
