Microsoft Edge Updates On PC and MobileJust recently, the software giant did something they have never done before, released new Windows 10 insider preview builds for both PC and mobile.

So why exactly are these build a worth trying? Well, at least on the mobile side, Edge no longer feels like a pre-alpha piece of software, which is not saying much but still. It does feel way smoother than before and brings the following new features:

– Ability to change the default search engine to Google, at least for some of the users and here we are still stick with Bing and there is no way to do so. Yes, advanced settings are broken.
– Overall performance and usability improvements.
– Much improved UI for easier and faster access.
– Search suggestions now use much more screen real estate, which is good.
– Data sync across different devices although it seems to be broken as well.

What about the desktop? Well, it still has no extensions but here is what is new:

– You can now use Microsoft Edge to cast video, picture, and audio content from your browser to any Miracast and DLNA enabled device on your network.
– You can now highlight text while reading a PDF in Microsoft Edge and right-click to “Ask Cortana” to find additional information.
And the usual performance and stability improvements.
