edge: Microsoft is working on a new feature for its Edge browser | #firefox | #chrome | #microsoftedge

Microsoft is developing a new feature for its Edge browser that will make it easier for users to share files. This new feature called Drop will allow users to share notes and files across all devices that have the Edge browser installed. According to a report by XDA Developers, the feature is expected to be placed on the sidebar of the desktop version of the Edge browser. The report also mentions that the option is likely to look like a messaging service, however, users will only be able to send messages to themselves.
Microsoft Edge’s Drop feature availability
Microsoft Edge’s Drop feature is currently available to Microsoft Edge Insiders running the latest version available in the Canary channel. The report also suggests that the tech giant is rolling out this feature in a controlled way. This means that all users in the Canary channel might not be able to see the feature just yet. However, if users want to test this feature now, they have to do it by downloading the latest Canary version of Microsoft Edge and checking if they are lucky enough to get this feature. Users for whom this feature is available can enable the Drop button by clicking the three-dot menu and then choosing Settings. Then, the user needs to select the option Appearance and the drop option will is likely to be found below the Citations button.
How will Microsoft Edge’s Drop feature work?
As per the report, Microsoft Edge’s upcoming Drop feature can be used to send almost anything — from text to file attachments. The report also suggests that the feature is also expected to provide cloud storage as Edge will show how much space is currently being used on the user’s OneDrive account. This means that the files sent over Drop live on OneDrive might take up the user’s cloud storage space. The tech giant might also use OneDrive itself which is likely to make it more convenient for users to access these files.
Other Edge feature Microsoft is developing
Apart from working on the new drop feature, Microsoft keeps on developing new features for Edge. Recently, the company collaborated with CloudFlare to offer a Secure Network Mode. This new Mode is a built-in VPN service that encrypts your data as you browse the internet. Microsoft also announced that it’s upgrading the PWA experience on its Edge browser for web apps to feel more like native apps, in its Build event last week.
