Microsoft has recently released a revamped Microsoft Edge, its search engine that comes by default in all Windows-powered computers. The company has claimed it now focuses on more privacy, more productivity, and offers users more control over their data.
Like all modern browsers, Edge packs various options for protecting you from online trackers, support for extensions – both from the Chrome Web Store and Microsoft’s extension library – reader mode, the possibility to switch profiles, and a lot of other stuff you’d expect from a search engine.
Microsoft Edge Has a New Appearance
Microsoft Edge also offers users some tools to protect your privacy, such as AdBlock Plus, and InPrivate mode. You can organize the web in a manner you prefer, making it easier to find, view, and manage your content on-the-go as well.
It is worth noting that the new Microsoft Edge has a new and fresh logo, as well as a slightly changed interface. For the first time in several years, the technology giant’s search engine platform is not indicated by a blue ‘e,’ but it packs a new logo that resembles a wave, most likely for surfing the Internet.
The developers have just released a new installment for the browser, Microsoft Edge 45.01.2.4920 update, and it intends to roll out more consumer Edge features and interesting updates this year.
The company is hoping that numerous customers that use Google Chrome will switch over to use Microsoft Edge because of the new functionalities and changes to the search engine.

The update also comes with the possibility to customize the layout of a new tab page and tracking prevention with three levels of blocking: Basic, Balanced, or Strict.
