Before Windows 10, the default browser of Windows was Internet Explorer, Microsoft killed it when it launched Windows 10 but could not do well with Edge as well.

I'm traveling today-I guess I really missed driving between Boston and Pennsylvania, so I'm doing it again for kicks-but I did download Microsoft Edge Preview on Android at a rest area in CT.

One week ago, Microsoft announced Arrow Launcher for Android Phones would be graduating to a new name, Microsoft Launcher. What that means is that you will now be able to download and use the Edge browser on your Android phone; something that was not possible before now.

Then, authorities said, they ransacked the home - but it's not clear if anything was taken. "She came running out", Peterson said. It's possible that the intruders knew the couple, since the invasion does not appear to be random, they said.

Edge is also included in Windows 10 Mobile but the mobile version of OS is also dead which again leaves Edge in the dark. The Microsoft Edge preview for Android is now live, but getting it is a little more complicated than simply going to the Google Play Store and performing a search for the browser. The key feature that is anticipated in the new app is its "Continue on PC" option that will enable users to send web pages to a PC, restore earlier pages and also resume from the last page. Cool as this tool is, only users with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update can enjoy or access it.

But you don't have to take my word for it: You can download the Microsoft Edge Preview for yourself from Google Play Store and check it out too. You'll need to go through Microsoft instead, and the company has set up a new preview page that you can use to request a download link. Microsoft Edge provided the highest zero-hour protection rate at 81.8%, and over time maintained a 24.2% lead over Chrome.

Microsoft Launcher has a feed which is accessible from the right swipe and it shows top news, important events, recent activities, photos and most frequently used apps. While the digital assistant is already in the center of Windows 10, Microsoft tied the service with Edge to get you a better browsing experience.
