On Google Play there are a huge number of browsers, where Chrome, Google, which usually come pre-installed on smartphones (sometimes along at the brand’s own). However, there are other classics such as Opera or Firefox, which share a site with a few more that have their own virtues.

To this group now joins Microsoft Edge, the classic formerly known as Internet Explorer, which can be found in the Windows devices. You can already download a preview version of this browser in Google Play (leave the box below), so we tell you what we found and how it works.

Edge 01

There are few applications that Microsoft has been uploading to Google Play for the Android users we can use them, and your browser Edge is the latest. Nothing more to enter, you have the typical search bar, on your right hand side, you have two options: to scan a QR code and another to do a voice search (in this latter case, it is a small download and you can dictate your search in Spanish).

you’ll Also have a list of pages that soles access (if you use it for the first time, puts the most popular).

When you navigate to a page, you are above the address bar next to the icon to manage your favorites. Downstairs there is another bar in which are located the typical arrows to go back or forward, an icon to connect with another device, the other to manage the tabs and a menu.

In the settings section of you can, if you want to change the search engine (default is Bing), as well as access to the typical settings that have the most browsers.

The appearance section is still very empty, but it is still a beta we hope that you may be added options. In general it works pretty well and the websites are opened with rapidity both in its mobile version as the desktop. Missing improve some aspects such as the aforementioned personalization, and add any option that you do so only beyond able to sync the tabs.
