What you need to know

  • Microsoft Edge has new features built around the idea of saving you time and money.
  • These features include express checkout and easy access to customer reviews of products you may be considering.
  • Edge will also now provide suggestions for what you should check out while traveling (if you want Edge's advice on the subject).

Like other browsers vying for your attention and adoration, Microsoft Edge is constantly overhauling itself with new features and functions, attempting to make itself the most compelling package possible. So to ensure you don't wander off to Google Chrome, or Firefox, or Opera, or Brave (or you get the point), Edge has these new lures: Features designed to save you time and money.

You can now get instant access to customer reviews of products just by clicking the blue tag in the search bar, in case you want writeups from trusted sources on the fly to help inform your buying decisions. And, with Edge's new express checkout feature, you also have the means to save guest checkout info so that future purchases across any online retailer will be faster and easier.

But wait, there's more! If you're planning your next getaway within the Edge browser, there'll be a notification in the search bar up top that can give you tips on what places are worth checking out. If you want Edge to help plan your big trip to El Salvador or the Maldives, you can effectively sit back and let it do some of the work for you.

And we're not done yet: Microsoft Edge also packs Tab Groups to ensure you're organized and not strapped for space due to having a hundred stray tabs roaming around.
