    Do unexpected things with Microsoft Edge


    We’re eight days to launch! Next up in our series where we’re talking about cool features in Windows 10 is Microsoft Edge. The all-new browser designed to go beyond browsing to help you do more on the web. With inking capabilities built-in, you can write* or type directly on webpages and share your mark-ups with friends, family, coworkers or anyone you’d like. If you value a premium reading experience, there’s a feature that allows you to clear away distractions from your online articles and a reading list that organizes your favorite reads to enjoy later. The improved address bar helps you to find things faster, and with Cortana** enabled, you can instantly move from searching to doing.



    Easily mark up and share web pages

    Only Microsoft Edge has the built-in technology that lets you write* or type directly on webpages. Add your thoughts on the page and then easily share it with others or save to OneNote. You can transform any webpage into your canvas with Microsoft Edge.

    Best reading. No distractions.

    Microsoft Edge delivers the best built-in reading experience. A new reading view option lets you enjoy online articles in a distraction-free layout optimized for your screen size. You can also have any webpage or PDF file saved and organized in your reading list for convenient access later.



    Find it faster

    In a big improvement over typical address bars, Microsoft Edge makes recommendations to speed you to your online destination. You can also get quick answers for weather, stock, definitions, and calculations, even the most popular fun facts like “What is pi?” – right from the address bar.

    Get more done with Cortana built in

    Microsoft Edge lets you move quickly from browsing to doing. With Cortana** enabled, you get instant access to key actions like making reservations or reading reviews – without leaving the page you’re on. You can also highlight an unfamiliar term to get a contextual explanation that doesn’t take you away from where you are.
    Microsoft Edge sweeps away the obstacles between you and your favorite online activities, for a web experience that’s more personal, responsive, and all about getting things done. Check back tomorrow to see which feature we talk about next!

    *Hardware dependent.
    **Cortana available in select markets at launch, experience may vary by region and device.

    I read somewhere that they are planning further work on Edge past RTM, such as addons.

    "Do unexpected things" with prerelease software == lots of bugs

    I cannot understand the advert thing - As soon as you register and sign on, Adverts and popups are magically gone! It is only the bots and chance lurkers who see them.
