Microsoft Edge review

  • 2018-12-06
Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

It seems that PC and mobile users have more than enough browsers today. However, there’s always room for improvement! That is why developers introduced Microsoft Edge – to create the ultimate browsing experience.

Interface - 5/5

The design of the app is clean and polished. User-friendly navigation guarantees that you will find the functionality of Microsoft Edge pretty simple. All of the command buttons are large, making it easy to select right what you need. There is a couple of interfaces: a light-gray and a black one for your convenience. 

The interface of Microsoft Edge is simple enough to use it without any obstacles.

Content and Features - 5/5

If you need an outstanding browsing experience, you may try downloading and setting up Microsoft Edge. It has plenty of useful features.

  • Data synchronization: Users can sync such personal info as passcodes, favorites, and reading list across the devices.

  • Hub view: The app makes the process of detecting and controlling such content as history, favorites, and books easily in a single place.

  • Switch between devices: It is possible to go anywhere and select where you left off by transferring data between various devices and computers.

  • QR scanner: It is a rather useful function nowadays. The app displays the scanned info on the mobile device’s screen.

  • Voice search and detection: Users have an opportunity to use their voice to look for the items they are interested in directly on the internet. With the help of a voice command, you can surf the web faster than before. Just ask your smart device a question using Microsoft Edge.

  • InPrivate: Each time you browse using InPrivate mode, your retrieved information (e.g., history, cache, and cookies) is not stored on the device after the action.

Usability - 3/5

Thanks to the simple page markup and sharing, on-page lookup with Cortana, and excellent tab organization tools, it is easy to use Microsoft Edge. The user will quickly get acquainted with the navigation and functionality of the app. You can turn on the functions like the Favorites bar in Settings. Moreover, the app can work as an e-book and PDF reader for user’s convenience.

However, Edge has its share of drawbacks as well. The app is missing some of the basic usability options that have been included in other browsers for ages.

Compatibility – 5/5

You will need Android version 4.4 to run Microsoft Edge. As to Apple devices, the application requires iOS 10.0 or up. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

The most up-to-date version of Microsoft Edge adds support for the JavaScript functionality, WebAssembly, SharedArrayBuffer, and Atomics. The developers also made this application compatible with CSS features like object-fit and object-position.

Conclusion

Microsoft Edge possesses a host of useful features that allow surfing the World Wide Web much faster than before. Moreover, the search becomes fun and more productive. Cortana, Annotation, Search by Voice, Reading View, and QR Code Reader are among the most helpful options offered by the developers of Microsoft Edge. Now you can benefit from using this browser on your mobile device too.

  • Reading mode included
  • Easy sharing
  • Good tab organization tools
