Took a time to get here, this feature, but Microsoft has finally made available the fullscreen mode for the Edge web browser. This comes alongside the launch of the Fall Creators Update. The latest version of the operating system that Redmond is currently rolling out. Although it was possible to take the browser...

Change of heart? Microsoft has been pretty adamant over the years of keeping Edge exclusive to the Windows platform, to the determent of the fledging web browser, it must be said. One of the big reasons behind the low market share of Microsoft Edge is the fact that it is not available on other platforms — and...

Or at least, tries to. Edge extensions are in the spotlight right now, with Microsoft publishing a blog post recently detailing why the list of supported plugins for the web browser is growing so slowly. And the reason is as surprising as you can imagine. Basically, the software titan says that since it is...

Microsoft Edge is fighting a lone fight, what with its exclusive availability on a single platform, Windows 10, and only two major updates every year, with the operating system.

Market share for both is declining. And in fact, the combined usage share of both apps was down 0.9% last month, the biggest dip since...

Got to love these blog posts about speed improvements in Windows 10. This time Edge, the web browser, is the part of the OS in question, which is getting a solid boost. Basically, as revealed, Microsoft is adding a neat new independent rendering system to the platform. It’s not a new technique — something similar...

The two Chinese companies are currently embroiled in controversies where technology firms are deprecating their certificates, and Microsoft has now also joined in and made a decision. A design to remove the certificates issued by WoSign and StartCom. Redmond announced that it arrived at this decision after...

Suppose you can, but the Windows 10 build 16527 that was just released, brings with it slew of new features and improvements to existing ones, including a lot of welcome changes for Microsoft Edge.
