Edge vs Internet Explorer: What’s New | #firefox | #chrome | #microsoftedge

Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser is so last year. With the introduction of Windows 10, the software giant has changed the default browser that comes with its new operating system and called it Edge. That doesn’t mean IE is going away, as it’s still around mostly to support specific legacy apps that make use of it. But the two browsers are very different.

That said, Microsoft didn’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. Both Edge and IE have tabs, private browsing and search powered by Bing. They both offer similar performance and speed, on such tests as Peacekeeper and SunSpider. Settings, such as privacy and downloads management, are the same in both browsers. But Edge sports a sleeker, more modern aesthetic and has Cortana embedded for easier searching, among some other fancy new features.
