Microsoft Edge on Android now over 500K installs, more regions added

Microsoft unveiled a beta version of its Edge web browser last month for iOS and Android.

"A special thanks you goes out to each of you-hundreds of thousands of you-who downloaded, test-drove, and sent feedback on the preview apps", Microsoft's Joe Belfiore writes. This feature known as "Continue on PC" is one of the highlights of the iOS version of Microsoft Edge as well. The iOS incarnation is available in the App Store today in the U.S., U.K., France, and China, while the Android incarnation is launching in those markets in addition to Australia, Canada, and India.

While Edge gets a lot of flak, and I've yet to try the iOS version, the Android app has been top notch so far. Content and data sync seamlessly in the background, so users can browse across devices, without skipping a beat. We'll be looking forward to seeing more features, such as tablet support, and even tab syncing.

Microsoft launched the Edge browser for public testing in October.

Microsoft today has officially released its Edge browser on iOS.

As its name suggests, the Roaming Passwords feature allows users to set passwords for frequently-visited sites and online services on a smartphone and then pull up those credentials when they revisit those sites on their Windows 10 PCs. Windows Club says this theme causes less strain on the eyes, and it also conserves battery.

Apart from English, the Edge browser is available in Chinese, and French. Success might not be likely without a major presence on PCs, but Microsoft at least deserves some points for trying to make Edge happen.
