Microsoft Edge update adds support for Android 8.0 Oreo adaptive icons, more

Great news for Android users who've decided to give Microsoft's Edge browser a chance, as the developers have just released a new update that further improves user experience. Although it's been designed for Windows 10, Microsoft Edge is meant to offer users a continuous browsing experience across their devices.

Basically, you can start browsing on your Windows 10 PC and then continue from where you left off on your Android smartphone while on the move. You can even sync your favorites and reading lists across your devices.

And with the latest update, Microsoft promises a new reading mode experience that's more immersive, although there aren't any changes noticeable at first glance. Another important addition to the browser is support for Android 8.0 Oreo's adaptive icons.

Also, Microsoft claims the update should further improve stability, performance, as well as website compatibility. Finally, the new version of Microsoft Edge allows users to share links and text from other apps to the browser.

If you visit this site is does. See a lot of complaints about intrusive adds here. I never use a add blocker until I started visiting this site.

So far it's been a pleasure to use. Smoother and faster than Chrome, with way smaller ram footprint. If you use windows 10 in work etc you will enjoy using it, it syncs really well.
