Microsoft today announced several new features for its new Chromium-based Edge browser, which was publicly released only a few weeks ago. The company is promising an IE mode, additional privacy tools, and Collections. Microsoft said "these features and more will begin to roll out over time" as Chromium Edge nears launch. Launch dates weren't mentioned and with some features, it looks like development is still in early phases.
The IE Mode for Edge will enable businesses to load old sites within the new Edge Chromium browser. It will do that by using the Internet Explorer rendering engine. This will allow companies to continue to access older internal websites that don’t support newer browsing technologies.
The company is also making some privacy improvements which include blocking web trackers that follow users across the web. It also plans to create a single privacy page in the browser which will let users choose from three different levels of privacy: unrestricted, balanced, and strict, with the level of ad tracking varying across each mode.
There will also be a MacOS version of the browser. The release will be available very soon, and Mac users should be able to access both the Canary and Dev builds of Edge just like Windows.
