Watch out Chrome, Microsoft Edge is All set to Have an Edge on you

How to stay unique and still give a hard time to competitors? Well, we can learn something about it from Microsoft.

Microsoft is all set to make its mark by rolling out new features and stay different, better and user-friendly to its customers.

Let’s check out the new features which will be available soon.

1. Smart call feature

Longer hours of work from home due to this pandemic implies many video calls.

Creating a video call link is a bummer if you just want things quick and easy, like me.

With “Meet Now” (a new video-calling feature of Microsoft Edge), you can begin a video call with almost 50 people.

No more fancy software installation—just tap on Meet Now on the new tab page, create a link and share it.

Don’t check out right away, the new feature will be rolled out in upcoming weeks.

2. New screenshot tool

Do you squint while taking a screenshot and feel like a bomb-squad carefully plucking out things?

Well, give your fingers some rest, as the new feature will rescue you.

No more going to the search bar, opening a screenshot app which takes forever to open or get an extension on the browser.

Now, Edge’s screenshot tool will scroll down the entire page or image and let you take a screenshot with just a click.

All you have to do:

Tap on the web capture, preview it and share it instantly. Easy, right?

3. Price comparison feature

This one is a bliss for online shopaholics.

Who doesn’t compare prices while shopping online? Well, everyone loves to do it but it’s not an easy task.

\With this new feature, you can actually compare prices without switching between tabs in the browser.

In-built “compare price to other retailers” surely makes things easy as shown in the gif attached.

In near future, Edge is expected to have coupon options too.

Microsoft IE Browser Death March Hastens

As the death of the once dominant Internet Explorer (IE) draws closer, Microsoft is quickly pounding more nails into the browser’s coffin.

On Monday, Microsoft hastened its IE-to-Edge browser-transition strategy and announced new controls for users and IT staff when it comes to how the lame-duck browser will handle a growing list of websites incompatible with IE. Those include YouTube, Twitter, Yahoo Mail and 1,153 other leading internet destinations.

Microsoft also announced that in two short weeks, its own services would no longer be supported by 25-year-old browser that once crushed Netscape and other competitors. In 2004 IE enjoyed 95 percent market share. Today, an estimated 5 percent of users rely on it.

As a point of reference, the Microsoft Edge web browser comes built into Windows 10. In 2015 Microsoft said it would replace IE with Edge in an effort to support modern browser functions, such as extensions. In 2018, it announced further efforts to streamline its development — Edge be rebuilt on the Chromium rendering engine, which is the same code that Google’s Chrome browser uses.

Part of IE’s shuttering entails redirecting users to the Microsoft Edge 87, to be released November 17. However, BleepingComputer reported that the redirects have already begun.

Last Monday, Microsoft explained that users of IE who visited an incompatible website would be presented with an interstitial webpage alerting them they were being redirected to Microsoft Edge. An opt-in prompt asks consent to copy a user’s browsing data and preferences from Internet Explorer to Microsoft Edge. In addition to that, a website incompatibility banner will appear below the address bar for every redirection, Microsoft said.

On Monday, Microsoft released instructions on how IT staff can change the behavior of Internet Explorer when it lands on an incompatible site.

  • One option is configuring IE to not redirect to Edge “RedirectSitesFromInternetExplorerPreventBHOInstall”.
  • A second option “RedirectSitesFromInternetExplorerRedirectMode” allows IE to open sites in Edge – and browser data and user preferences are automatically imported.
  • The third option doesn’t import browser data and user preferences, but hides any incompatibility warning message and redirects IE to Edge.

“Redirection from Internet Explorer to Microsoft Edge requires an Internet Explorer Browser Helper Object (BHO) named ‘IEtoEdge BHO,'” Microsoft explained.

“These policies will be available as ADMX file updates by October 26, 2020 and will be available in Intune by November 9, 2020,” wrote Microsoft. ADMX files are Windows registry-based policy settings that are XML-based and define policy settings and browser behaviors.
