- The feature allows users to quickly and easily share content through other apps.
- The share dialog is already available on the publicly released version of Microsoft Edge.
Users of the Dev and Canary versions of Microsoft Edge can now easily share content from the web through other apps. Both versions of Microsoft Edge now feature a share dialog that allows users to share content through popular apps with just a few taps (via Neowin).
The same feature is already available to users on the publicly released version of Microsoft Edge, as well as the Chromium-powered Android version of Microsoft Edge on mobile devices. Richard Hay, also known on Twitter as WinObs, spotted the new feature.

In addition to sharing content through other apps, the sharing feature supports sharing content to nearby devices.
The feature is rolling out gradually through both channels, so you might not see it immediately. You can sign up to test both the Dev and Canary versions of Microsoft Edge through the Edge Insider website.
Portable (and affordable) power accessories we love
Each and every one of these charging gadgets will keep your favorite gear and gadgets going for longer, and none of them costs more than $30.
VisionTek 8,000 mAh micro-USB power bank ($13 at Dell)
This compact dual-output powerbank can speedily recharge any and all your devices, thanks to a two-amp "fast charge feature," using its micro-USB out port. Its simple design includes an LED indicator, and it costs about as much as a single ticket to the movies.
Panasonic eneloop AA batteries (From $13 at Dell)
Panasonic's rechargeable batteries are among the best available, and just a couple of them will keep your favorite remote, mice or other peripherals powered up when you need them. They're also eco. And the company's affordable charger fits and charges both AA and AAA batteries at the same time.
Belkin Qi Wireless Charging Pad ($30 at Dell)
This unobtrusive Qi wireless charging pad looks good (and kind of like a UFO …) and easily charges all your Qi-compatible device up to 5W. Its LED indicator lights up when you're charging. And it costs just $30.
