Additional options have also been included like New Start-up and New Tab customization, auto password/form-filling that enables you to manage your passwords for other websites, breaking and dragging tabs and last but not the least a brand new fabulous dark theme.

It is up to you to decide what you want to display on the screen when you click the browser option, including a marvelous feature of Suggested Posts that depicts your interest and shows relevant material to your search. Audio also keeps on playing on Edge even if it is sent to background.

Apart from new features providing ease of access, several new modifications have been made in the visuals and display. Continuum’s Tablet mode will get an improvised view with the addition of several animations supporting Windows 8/8.1 apps and classic (Win32) apps.
