Microsoft is continuing to try to seed its Edge browser beyond Windows.
On March 26, Microsoft announced that its Edge browser apps are now generally available for iPads and Android tablets. The Edge apps already are available for iOS and Android phone devices.
By making Edge apps available on non-Windows operating systems, Microsoft is hoping to do more than give Windows 10 users who use Edge a more convenient way to sync their bookmarks, tabs, etc., across devices.
Microsoft also is doing this to improve its “Continue on PC” feature
Instead of using the underlying Microsoft EdgeHTML rendering engine, the iOS Edge app uses Webkit like Apple does, and the Android Edge app uses the Chromium Blink engine.
In other browser news, Google is testing Precision Touchpad support for its Chrome browser with its latest Canary developer build, as noted today by Windows Central. Whenever this gets added to Chrome, users with Windows devices that include Precision Touchpads could see smoother scrolling.
