Expect More From Your Browser

Expect More From Your Browser

It has no secret that Microsoft has been promoting their best-in-class Edge browser lately.  I usually don't like to steal marketing tag lines from Microsoft but in this case it fits - 'Expect More from Your Browser'.


Browsers are interesting - most users 'just use any' and don't really care about which one they are using until a web site or application doesn't work.  Microsoft's Edge browser is in a word….Awesome.


Why is it the best?  Why should your organization adopt Edge?  Read on….

  • Be More Productive
    • Smart Copy - Aren't you sick of trying to cut and paste something from a webpage and then spending a ton of time reformatting because things got all fouled up in the process?!  Smart copy fixes this and makes users happy!  
    • Collections - Leverage enhanced controls for navigation and organization -  'Collections' allow you to store and collect info from different websites / sources
    • Vertical Tabs - Ever have way too many tabs open and it becomes hard to know what tab you are on and the width of them gets so narrow they can't be read - vertical tabs solves all that
    • Strong Immersive Reading - Increasing access to everyone
    • Leverage Extensions - Smarter Tabs!
  • Enhance You Security Posture
    • Tracking Prevention - Options are available to limit or restrict tracking.  Say goodbye to creepy ads that pop up because you searched for something last week!
    • Password Monitor - Know if your PW has been compromised on the dark web
    • Most Secure - A new report from NSS Labs has concluded that Microsoft's Edge browser is more secure than Mozilla's Firefox and Google's Chrome browsers.
  • Microsoft Platform Integration
    • For those leveraging Office 365 (and who isn't these days!?) - the browser connect/synchs with your Microsoft account adding a nice smooth search experience and preventing login asks as much
  • Embrace World Class Performance
    • Fastest - Uses less of your PCs resources than Chrome
    • Microsoft Edge is the only browser on Windows 10 that lets you watch 4K on Netflix. It’s also the only browser that supports Dolby Audio and Dolby Vision on Windows 10


In summary - Edge is Faster.  Edge is Safer.  Edge is Better.
