Among all the browsers that we know, Microsoft?s Internet Explorer has been the one that?s most ridiculed. Frustratingly archaic, it lacked the sophistication and advancements offered by competitions like Chrome and Safari. But not anymore.
Microsoft Claims Insanely Fast Browser
Microsoft claims blazing fast browser to rival against other internet stalwarts. According to a blog post from Microsoft, their latest browser called Microsoft Edge, continues improve as the incorporate the browser to this month?s Windows 10 update.
According to Time, consumers will get a chance to try Edge for themselves when it launches as the default browser with Windows 10 on July 29. One of the browser?s main selling points is its deep integration with Cortana, Microsoft?s Siri-like virtual assistant, as well as the ability to mark up web pages with sharable annotations.
Windows 10 launch
Almost 5-million beta testers will be switching to the new program, so Microsoft is making sure that everything runs smoothly via a global effort that clearly states that this is bigger than the release of their Windows 8. Under the banner, ?upgrading the world? Microsoft aims to project its launch is something that can definitely change the dynamics of Windows users.
In an article, it was announced that Microsoft stores, as well as retailers like Best Buy, Walmart and Staples, will offer in-store upgrade help and ?experience stations? to let you try out Windows 10. The educational push makes sense, since Microsoft is making Windows 10 available for free to existing Windows 7 and 8 users for its first year. This time around getting people to upgrade means a lot more to Microsoft than making them pay retail price for a new OS.
As for Edge, Microsoft isn?t yet killing off Internet Explorer completely, both it and Edge will co-exist in Windows 10 for now.
