Microsoft is activating two highly anticipated features for its Edge browser. Nearly a year after its release, the browser begins to offer its user history and tab sync features.
Microsoft Edge becomes more useful
Not every country will have access to Microsoft Edge’s features in the first place. However, countries such as the United Kingdom or America will be among the first markets to experience tab sync. With these new features, Edge users can sync all web pages they visit, in addition to Windows 10 or macOS devices, or even mobile versions of Edge on iOS and Android platforms.
Edge, which first met users on January 15, 20b20, was released without many major sync options. The extensions sync took place in May, and Microsoft has stated that the features it is currently preparing to activate will be available in the summer. Following these announcements, the web history and tab sync features became available in beta versions of the browser in late November.
To enable features, it is enough to go to settings> profiles> sync and enable “history” and “open tabs” in the options. It is of course advantageous not to be in countries where the functions are available. On the other hand, you need to go to the settings section on all the devices you use Edge on to manually enable the history and tab opening features.
The company continues to develop the browser on a regular basis and continues to work to make the screenshot tool and price comparison features available. Edge is also receiving an update on vertical tabs and new password breach notifications.
