How To Change The Default Browser On Windows 10

Not a fan of using Edge as your default browser on Windows 10? Here’s how you can change the default browser on your Windows computer.


You Can Now Beta Test Microsoft’s Chromium Edge Browser

While variety and having options is usually a good thing, this can also sometimes create problems. For example, there are different browsers in the market today but they are all built differently, which means that when it comes to compatibility, there are certain things that will work for some browsers and certain things that won’t.


Microsoft Edge Introduces Tracking Prevention In Upcoming Update

In case you did not know, there are many websites that track you. This is mainly for advertising purposes where these ads can track users across multiple websites to better discern your browsing and shopping habits. Naturally, some people aren’t too comfortable with that which is why some companies have built in anti-tracking features, such as Apple did with Safari.


Google Is Forcing Microsoft Edge Preview Users To Use Chrome To Watch YouTube

It seemed like Microsoft might have slightly conceded to Google when the company announced their plans to rebuild its Edge browser based on Chromium, the same platform that Google’s Chrome browser is based on. However, it seems that isn’t enough for Google because according to reports, Google still very much wants Edge users to use Chrome.

Early Build Of Microsoft Edge For macOS Has Been Leaked

Yesterday, we reported that Microsoft had confirmed that they will be eventually releasing their Edge browser for macOS. Given that the browser is available on mobile devices, we suppose coming to macOS seemed like the next logical step. Unfortunately, Microsoft did not mention when it would be available.


Microsoft Edge Will Be Coming To macOS Soon

When it comes to browsers, Microsoft has made a lot of headway in that area with the launch of their Edge browser that was bundled with Windows 10. It represented huge changes from Internet Explorer and overall feels like quite a worthy successor, but perhaps the stigma of Internet Explorer is still too strong where Edge isn’t quite as adopted as Microsoft would like.


Microsoft Wants To Ensure You’re Really Incognito In Incognito Mode

With Chrome’s Incognito Mode, the idea behind it is that you will be able to browse the web with relative privacy where the sites you visit will not show up in the main Chrome. We’ve seen how sometimes it’s not quite as discreet as you might think, but it seems that Microsoft is hoping to fix that.


Google’s Security Key Now Works With Firefox And Edge

Last year Google launched their Titan hardware security key. For those unfamiliar, this is a USB dongle that when connected to a device, like a computer, would act as a “key” that authenticates users on websites and services. Previously Titan had worked with Google’s Chrome browser, but now it seems that support for more browsers is being rolled out as we speak.


Microsoft’s Chromium Edge Browser Has Leaked Online

Microsoft announced in December last year that it was going to make a significant change for its Edge browser. It’s rebuilding Microsoft Edge on Chromium which is the same open-source web rendering engine that Google uses for its popular Chrome browser. An early version of the browser has now leaked online.


Microsoft Launches Revamped Skype For Web, Only Works In Edge And Chrome

Accessing Skype through the web isn’t exactly new. However Microsoft has since launched an updated and revamped version of the chat client where if you’re using a computer without Skype installed, you’ll still be able to access some of its features through your browser. However there is a catch.


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. While translating on mobile is more than possible, Microsoft is making it easier for users with its Edge browser.


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’s Edge browser has a similar feature too, but it works for websites that it deems might be home to fake news.


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. Now if you do prefer using Microsoft’s Edge on your iOS device, then you might be interested in the app’s latest beta.


Some Believe Google ‘Intentionally’ Broke Microsoft & Apple’s Browsers

It was recently revealed that Microsoft is working on a major overhaul for its Edge browser where they would be adopting Chromium, Google’s rendering engine for websites, and thus ditching EdgeHTML in the process. It seemed like a smart idea with regards to compatibility, but it seems that Microsoft might have been forced into the matter.
