While Microsoft Edge may not be as popular as the competition, it offers a variety of features and functions which can come in quite handy. Users have the option to download an Android version of the app, which complements the browsing experience. Recently, Microsoft Edge 126.96.36.19989 for Android rolled out with improvements and bug fixes.
Most people associate Microsoft and its internet browsers with the famous (or infamous, depending on who you ask) Internet Explorer. The first version of Internet Explorer was released in 1996, and it was well-received by Windows users.
Several versions of the browser were released as the years passed but most of the recent ones failed to make an impression. Microsoft decided to start from scratch and released Microsoft Edge as a fresh alternative.
