The web can be overwhelming. It’s easy to lose track of where you are, and it can be difficult to turn the chaos of your tabs and windows into actionable information. The Collections feature is designed to tackle this challenge, using cloud-powered intelligence and an intuitive interface to help you collect, organize, and share content as you travel across the web. Intelligent export to apps like Word and Excel preserves the logical structure of your content, so you can turn a loose collection of paragraphs into a handout with citations, or turn a shopping list into a spreadsheet sortable by price.
We’ve heard from our customers that it’s hard to understand how your data is being used by sites across the web, and you don’t feel always in control of your own data when browsing. Tracking prevention is designed to protect you from being tracked by websites that you aren’t accessing directly, giving you more control over your online data. This feature is enabled by default, so you don’t have to take any action to immediately start having a more secure browse experience. This is one of the ways Microsoft Edge is aiming to offer greater transparency and control.
Internet Explorer mode
Many of our enterprise customers rely on a multiple browser solution today, and this experience can be disjointed and confusing. Internet Explorer mode brings full IE11 compatibility to Microsoft Edge for your internal sites, without compromising the modern web experience on the public internet. Internet Explorer mode provides a seamless experience for those who need to access legacy sites. Instead of opening a separate window in Internet Explorer, customers will be able to view and access those legacy sites directly in the next version of Microsoft Edge.
