- [Garrick] Microsoft Edge is the default web browser built into Windows. This new version of Edge has been rebuilt from the ground up, and it includes a slew of under the hood improvements as well as a few new features like the ability to sync data across multiple installations of Edge, which is particularly useful now that Edge is also available for Macs as well as iOS and Android devices. The new Edge has been based on Google's Chromium Open Source Framework, making it work much more smoothly with websites designed to modern web standards. So you should see faster and more consistent performance when loading pages, and this also means that Edge now works with Chrome extensions to increase the features and functionality of the browser. We'll be looking at how to install and use extensions as well as the basics of browsing the web with Edge, including how to work with tabs, download files, and set up your favorites. We'll also cover the increasingly important topic of privacy options, including how to make sure you're browsing a secure site, how to manage your browsing history, and how to delete private information that may be stored in Edge. Hi, I'm Garrick Chow, and I'm looking forward to taking you through this course on the Microsoft Edge Browser.
