Yesterday Microsoft announced some of the changes that would come to your office suite par excellence. Office 365 to be called Microsoft 365 and see how it grew in the functions with the arrival of new tools and the enhancement of the already existing.
And now turn to speak of the new version of Edge, the brand new browser from Microsoft that, based on Chromium, it will offer new possibilities to its users, ever more faithful. The new Edge will see as it comes prevention of follow-up, the vertical tabs or the availability of the “Collections” in the mobile versions.
And we begin at the end, with the function “Collections”. A tool that until now was exclusive of Edge to PC and by means of which the users can add articles, web pages, web content in general… to a specific “Collection” to then have it always available (in fact we recently saw as add open tabs to the “Collections”).
And ahor the news is that the “Collections” will also be available for the applications of Edge that we can find in iOS and in Android. And if we add to this the synchronization, it can be a good measure to have the content always under control, regardless be using the mobile or the PC.
Another innovation are the so-called “vertical tabs”, a function that Microsoft expected to lead soon to the users that make use of any of the test versions (the Canary, Dev and Beta) and by means of which you will have access to a sorted view of the tabs the user has open. Located to the left of the screen allow the user to scroll through the list opening each one of them, the corresponding web site.
And to finish there is that talk of the prevention of follow-up, a tool that allows us to choose between three presets relating to the security for our navigation. The goal is to protect us from being tracked by websites that are not accessed directly, giving you more control over what is seen and what is not. Whether on desktops or mobile devices, you can select one of the three configurations are appropriate for you: Basic, Balanced, or Contracting
In addition come features such as Password Monitor, with which we can check if our passwords and keys have been exposed or Immersive Reader, to improve the concentration when we are reading on the screen.
We will have to wait even longer to see come to the Edge of these improvements. What cannot be doubted is that the bet Chromium has been only the beginning and that this time yes, it seems that Microsoft have made a browser that can stand up to Chrome and Firefox with all of the law.
