Introducing Microsoft Edge supporting Chromium kernel for iOS / macOS / Android

In 2020, Microsoft officially announced the official launch of its Microsoft Edge. The new Edge browser uses Chromium core, which is the core of Chrome. In addition, Edge is finally available on operating systems other than Windows 10, including Windows 7/8, macOS, iOS, and Android.

Available Chrome plugins

Edge features the ability to use its own plugins, as well as Chrome plugins. Basically, users can think of it as a Chrome browser, but the interface is simpler.

Anti-tracking feature that Google does n’t dare to add

Speaking of how Chrome is different from Edge, then Google must not dare to add "anti-tracking feature". Because Google is an online advertising company, it provides users with "tailor-made" advertising content by tracking user behavior.

The most common is to book a hotel.com, agoda.com and other websites, click on a hotel page, and soon you can see related Google ads when you look at other website content.

And Microsoft Edge has the most added "anti-tracking" feature, which can prevent these ads from tracking users' habits after launch.
