On March 26, Microsoft announced that its Edge browser apps are now generally available for iPads and Android tablets. Though Microsoft's Internet Explorer was once the butt of many jokes, the company has been doing some neat things with Microsoft Edge, which was introduced alongside Windows 10. Microsoft Edge is now available as a free download in the Apple Store and Google Play Store.

It's hard to tear a browser loyalist away from their favorite, but Microsoft's option has a few features that help to set it apart from the rest. The Dark theme of Edge on Windows 10 is also offered on these mobile versions of the browser. The ability to "continue on a PC" is present for tablets, too, so you can keep browsing right on your computer if you want to make the switch.

However, this isn't the only reason Edge has been in the news lately, with Microsoft reprising its pushy attitude towards browser use.


Microsoft Edge is officially picking up tablet support with its latest updates on Android and iOS. However, Microsoft stated back in November that Edge for iOS and Android will be brought to additional markets and languages in the coming months.

Safari and Google Chrome both support split screen multitasking on iOS 11.
