Content and data sync seamlessly in the background, so users can browse across devices, without skipping a beat. The company has announced that it does plan to support the feature in the near future, as well as bringing a fully equipped Edge browser to Apple's iPad to. Edge's only unique capability is the option of opening your current webpage on another device. The private browsing feature won't retain history items, temporary Internet files and cookies. This gives Edge's user interface an alternative appearance. The company also shared a promotional video and some other interesting details, saying Edge has been downloaded by "hundreds of thousands" and will be available in more regions soon. Success might not be likely without a major presence on PCs, but Microsoft at least deserves some points for trying to make Edge happen.
