A few days back, news leaked out online that Microsoft is planning to make Microsoft Edge browser available to Android and iOS devices.

If you're not too familiar with the Microsoft Edge browser, it is the successor to Internet Explorer browser and it's included in the windows 10 set as its default browser.

The mobile version of the Microsoft Edge is currently available for those having the new Windows 10 Insider Preview build. Having the Edge web browser on mobile devices running on iOS and Android will build better approach and more user-friendly with the windows 10.

Having the newly designed mobile version of Edge web browser on your Android/iOS devices lets you enrol the continue on PC feature, which means you can resume your activity on your phone from where you left it on your computer as it allows for synchronization between your computer and the smartphone.

Apart from your search habit, your bookmarks, passwords, history, and other fill in details will also get synchronized so you can access them easily especially when they're needed.

What's new on Edge mobile web browser???
The search engine: As usual the default search engine dedicated to the Edge browser is the Bing search engine. Now on the mobile version, is not only limited to Bing, also to Google’s search engine and Yahoo search engine, you can make your choice of which search engine is desired to be your default type.
Too bad the Edge mobile web browser does not support ad blocking. Perhaps it should in its next version.

The design: Microsoft Edge mobile browser has pretty much the same design as the Chrome and Safari browsers. These browsers are familiar in surfaces and having features like QR-code reader, Reading View, voice search, Hub View and more.

For now, Microsoft is only aiming at smartphones running on Android and iOS platforms, tablets are yet to gain support but I'm certain that as time goes by, tablets users will benefit too.
