In the context of Build 2019, the Redmond giant has given us more information on what to expect from its new Edge. Among the announced news, we must highlight new privacy tools and a built-in Internet Explorer.
Given the first point, with the new Chromium-based Edge we will be able to choose from three privacy profiles: Unrestricted, Balanced and Strict,
While the details of each of these modes have not been announced, we know that Edge will automatically adjust its settings to suit the mode you choose. All this in order to invest this greater control over the information the web collects about you.
Embedded Internet Explorer is primarily intended for business users.
Aware that some enterprise networks are cross-platform based, Microsoft wants with this built-in IE to address the need to have more than one browser open simultaneously. Whenever a particular site requires Internet Explorer functions, the new Egde will notify the user of this need.
Therefore, it may open a kind of compatibility mode that will eliminate the need to open a second browser. This will keep all your settings in one place and save time opening a particular site in another browser.
Microsoft also introduced Collections
With Colletions, Microsoft wants to make exporting information a simpler process. With this new feature you will be able to select images and text from multiple sites to the same place.
In addition, the information you collect can later be exported to Word or Excel files, depending on your needs. Most importantly, this can all be done within the Edge itself.
These were the main news announcements from Microsoft for Edge in its Build 2019. We still don't know when the new incarnation of Edge will be distributed to consumers, but such information will eventually arrive in due course.
