Microsoft Edge is all about simplicity and functionality. It does, however, find a way to fit comfort into its list of priorities for people surfing the web.

Stay in sync

Explore the internet with Microsoft Edge, a browser built to provide a simple experience.

Finally, you can live on the edge with Microsoft’s signature browser right on your Apple device. Microsoft and Apple software have had issues with compatibility in the past, but times have changed. Edge is a great example, as it runs well on any iPhone.

When you first open the application, you’ll notice the clean and simple design that puts everything you need right in front of you. The interface is smooth, and easy to understand. If you prefer an alternative layout, you can swap to another or modify it. Microsoft Edge offers customization options to give you full control over your browser. You can make adjustments that suit your needs.

To top it all off, if you use the desktop version of this software, Edge will transfer your saved passwords, bookmarks, and more to all devices running the app with your account. This is great for keeping tabs on important information at home or on the go.

But, this sleek interface comes with some minor flaws. Switching tabs is harder than it should be, and takes away from the ease of use that you’re promised at the start. Reading an e-Book is almost impossible within Microsoft’s browser, which might push quite a few people away. The limited number of plugins available for this program hinders a small part of the customization that it offers.

Where can you run this program?

Microsoft Edge is available for IOS, Android, Windows 10, and Mac OS 10 and later.

Is there a better alternative?

No. Microsoft Edge provides a comfortable interface that few browsers can match. Safari --IOS’s default browser -- does, however, offer an e-Book and PDF reading ability.

Our take

This is a fantastic browser.  It is easy to forget about its small drawbacks, given that it is easy to use, boasts a comfortable interface, and offers plenty of customization options,

Should you download it?

Yes. If you’re looking for a browser such as Microsoft Edge, this is a great option.
