Microsoft Edge for Android and iOS launches out of preview

Microsoft Edge browser now available for all Android and iOS users

Instead, Redmond has revealed that the Edge browser is now available for all Android and iOS users.

Some other standout functions carry over from the desktop version of Edge, like a users preset Favorites and Reading Lists - but so few people actually use Edge on their computers that a mobile version might not matter. But its key feature, perhaps, is Continue on PC, which lets you open the web page you're looking at on your phone right on your PC, or save it to work on later.

As for availability, Microsoft Edge for iOS will be available in the United States (English), China (Simplified-Chinese), France (French) and the UK (English). Microsoft Edge is designed for Windows 10 users to browse the web how they need to, wherever they are, without disrupting their flow. Microsoft Edge for mobile is mainly useful if you tend to resume a lot of browsing from a phone to a Windows 10 PC.

Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 1.41-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq , a 1.13-to-1 ratio favoured advancers. However, it lagged the large cap index gains, suggesting that expectations for tax cuts were not fully priced in.

For Windows PC users, Microsoft bringing its Edge browser to mobile is certainly a welcomed addition. Current tabs do not sync now, but that feature is apparently on the way in a future update. Passwords and login information also sync across PC and iPhone, while there's a built-in QR code reader as well. On the iOS side of things, the app just launched on the App Store out of preview on Test Flight, so there's not any reviews or public facing app store data for that platform at the time of writing.

"We have a long list of new features to build and improvements to make", added Belfiore. Voice search allows users to ask a question and have Microsoft Edge look it up in "more natural, familiar ways" than traditional searches.
