Microsoft confirmed the newest web browser will be called Microsoft Edge. Microsoft’s corporate vice president of operating systems, Joe Belfiore explained that all Windows 10 devices will ship with the new browser, eventually replacing Internet Explorer.
According to Belfiore, “Edge is significantly faster than its predecessor and includes a built-in notation tool, further integration with digital assistant Cortana to offer more personalised results and actions, and a reading mode.”
Edge will also be capable of supporting Chrome and Firefox extensions, allowing developers to carry their favourite plug-ins to the new browser.
The company also announced a new Windows Store offering new features, improved discoverability, better payment option and a new business store portal.
