  • Keizer: Microsoft takes struggling Edge browser to iOS, Android

    Posted on October 8th, 2017 at 09:02 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    In theory, you can now test Edge on both iPhone/iPads and on Android phones and tablets.

    In actuality, Microsoft hit Apple’s limit on the number of iPhone testers very early Saturday morning, it hasn’t yet allowed iPad users into the test. And it doesn’t have the Android version out yet.

    Gregg Keizer covers it all in Computerworld.

    Every indication I’ve seen so far is that Edge on the iPhone is quite unstable. It just leaves me asking, Why? Chrome browser already has all the syncing stuff – I use it all the time. Safari syncs with Apple products. Why would anybody use an also-ran browser just because it has Microsoft’s name on it?

    P.S. As soon as the Android version is available, I’ll try it. So you don’t have to, of course.
