While Microsoft Edge is still catching up to Google Chrome, the
browser is now based on Chromium and it offers a few welcome
new additions. But there’s one problem – the new Microsoft Edge
is still missing a few key features that a lot of people liked

The tab preview feature is now being prepared for the
Chromium-based Edge too. Edge Canary Build 86.0.593.0 finally
adds support this feature, allowing users to preview all their
open tabs in a single click instead of visiting individual
Tab preview is something that we’ve already seen in Google
Chrome, but Microsoft’s approach is slightly different in terms
of the user interface.
In addition, Microsoft is planning to enable support for Google
Chrome themes in Edge by default. The Chrome themes are custom
skins that can give your Microsoft Edge a whole new look and
it’s also possible that Microsoft will start making themes for
its browser in the near future.
Collections, which is one of the exclusive features available
in the desktop version of Microsoft Edge, is finally available
on iOS and Android.
Collections support on mobile versions of Edge will make it
super-easy to collect, manage and sync your project or shopping
lists across your devices.
If you use the same Microsoft account on Windows, macOS and
your mobile device, you can finally have your collections
synced between the two form factors, so the same content will
be available everywhere.
Collections support for Microsoft Edge on iOS and Android is
currently rolling out to users.
