Microsoft Edge is a web browser developed by Microsoft and included in the company's Windows operating system. It was released on July 29, 2015 and replaced Internet Explorer as the default browser on Windows 10. It is also the default browser on Windows 10 for mobile devices.


Edge integrates with Microsoft's online platforms: it integrates Cortana, a digital assistant to provide voice control, search functionality, and personalized information related to searches within the address bar. Users can make annotations to web pages that can be stored to and shared with OneDrive. It also integrates with the "Reading List" function to sync content between devices, and provides a "Reading Mode" that removes unnecessary formatting for easier reading purposes. Internet Explorer 11 will remain available alongside Edge on Windows 10 for compatibility purposes.
