In a world of web browsers where Google Chrome tends to dominate, Microsoft is working fast and furiously to prove that Edge is more than competitive. Using the open source Chromium option, Edge already takes the best of Chrome's speed and turns it into something that can give it the "edge". From its first world premiere in 2015 to the present, Edge has grown significantly and is more than worthy of consideration for any Windows 10 user. The fact that it adds a full set of keyboard shortcuts to make browsing even faster is one more reason to examine it closely.



Microsoft Edge

On the surface, Edge is a browser not unlike many other names you are familiar with such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc. While Chrome and Edge are similar under the hood thanks to the Chromium rendering engine, that's pretty much where the similarities end. Privacy, in particular, is one of the main reasons users of other browsers should look closely at Edge. With three simple basic settings, balanced and rigorous, Edge users can set their own level of privacy and know they are protected. Edge also blocks the installation of "potentially unwanted apps," which is no different than other browser security measures, but Edge seems to take that into consideration. In addition to security, Edge offers a clean-looking design that feels right at home on both Windows 10 and Mac.

When you start looking at more of Edge's unique features, that's when it really stands out from the competition. New features like collections that help you keep track of your ideas on the web are standout features that can really change the way you browse the web. Speaking of web browsing, built-in price comparison tools will help you shop online. with Edge and save money. Combine price comparison and a coupon discovery tool and Edge can help you put the money back in your pocket. Parents can rest assured that not only does Edge have strong built-in privacy protection, but “Kids Mode” enables a browser made for young children. Regardless of how you use Edge, extras like a huge list of keyboard shortcuts will help you navigate faster and safer without thinking twice. Let's take a look at some of the best keyboard shortcuts so you can get started with Microsoft Edge right away.
