Microsoft Edge For iOS Updated With Instant Translation

Unlike our desktop websites where if you use browsers like Chrome, it will come with a built-in translation feature, or you could simply copy the URL and take it to Google Translate to have it translated to whatever language you want.

Microsoft Edge Now Warning Users About Sites With Fake News

Google’s Chrome has a built-in security feature which when you visit a potentially dangerous website, it will bring up a warning message that tries to keep you away from the website (unless you really insist on it).

Microsoft Edge Beta For iOS Gets Picture-In-Picture

Apple’s Safari browser on iOS is more than capable of getting the job done as a mobile browser, but we imagine that for whatever reasons, people might choose to use a third-party browser, whether it be to sync their bookmarks or maybe due to better performance.

Microsoft Is Now Warning Users Against Using Third-Party Browsers

Microsoft Edge Gets Visual Search On iOS Devices

Safari on iOS devices is a pretty decent native browser, but we imagine that there are some users who might prefer third-party options such as Google’s Chrome or Microsoft’s Edge due to their ability to sync with their desktop counterparts (assuming you’re using Windows). The good news for iOS users is that it looks like Microsoft is giving its Edge browser a bit of an upgrade.

From time to time security flaws are uncovered in software. It’s not as if this was done on purpose, it’s just that sometimes it’s hard to try and catch all the flaws.
