      Edge is also available in Android and iOS/iPad.

      If you want privacy from google and Bing and others in your searches, try using Duck Duck Go in your favourite browser or on Android and iOS.

      Note however that Microsoft is discontinuing Edge soon, moving to a custom version of Google’s Chrome.

      It’s actually Chromium, which is where Google Chrome’s source code is derived from.

      Correct on all points. But I haven’t heard any good reviews of Edge on non-Win10 platforms.

      Microsoft is NOT discontinuing Edge. It is changing the rendering engine from EdgeHTML to Chromium’s Blink. It will use V8 for JavaScript instead of Chakra.

      See Microsoft Edge: Making the web better through more open source collaboration for more details.
