Microsoft has started to roll out a new update for its Edge browser this week. The latest version of the browser is called Edge 96 and the company’s rival Google has also launched the Chrome 96 version of its web browser this week. As Microsoft is continuously pushing users to use its Edge web browser on Windows 11 by blocking apps like EdgeDeflector, it has also improved its browser by adding a few new features with the latest update. Here are the new features that are available on Edge:
Price comparison and price history on Android devices
Whenever you see a product online on Edge browser it can begin to track the price and will notify you when it changes so you can save money. By using this feature, you don’t have to keep checking the prices of the products that you are interested in buying. The feature was already available for web users and now the company has released it for Android devices.
Shortcut to update passwords
On Microsoft Edge, you can now easily update your saved passwords that have been compromised. When you go to the password manager in the browser’s setting, you can tap on the Go to button near your saved password. The button will take you to the right page to update your password for that site. As of now, the feature is only available for a few websites but the company says it’s going to expand it soon.
Microsoft has also added a feature called efficiency mode and it can be accessed through the browser’s settings. The feature is meant to help you boost the battery life of your laptop by reducing the CPU and memory usage for the browser. The browser automatically enables the feature when the device’s battery is low.
