microsoft-edge-for-ios-and-androidMicrosoft opened its program so that any user interested in testing Microsoft Edge, the browser is integrated in Windows 10, could do so on their iOS device through the Test Flight application. Two months after being available, the application is now available so that any users interested in using it can test it directly on their device and be able to take advantage of the synchronization and continuity features that it offers. That if, for the moment the launch of this application is limited to a small group of countries among which includes the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, China and India.

In addition, Microsoft Edge for iOS allows to synchronize bookmarks stored in Microsoft Edge for Windows 10, also continue browsing the same page from your iPhone or iPad to the PC. This feature is currently not available in Chrome or Firefox.

Now, thanks to the synchronization, it is much easier to access any bookmark that we have stored on our computer wherever you are. Microsoft continues to release versions of its applications for both iOS and Android.

The initial idea of Microsoft when it launched its new browser, to make Explorer forget, was not to offer this browser on any other platform, an error that has cost the loss of a large number of users of the desktop platform, due among others things, which was not compatible with the extensions during its first year in the market, some extensions that are available in the main browsers of the market, such as Safari, Chrome and Firefox, and that allow users to add a plus of comfort for tasks or for those websites that do not offer downloading videos, blocking crawlers …

Microsoft did not take into account that Internet searches are increasingly carried out from mobile devices, not offering an application for this type of device that would allow bookmarks synchronization with the desktop version. It is not too late for the Redmond-based company to recover part of the quota that it has lost in recent years due to this problem.
