Edge is increasingly the Windows browser, although it is not limited to this Microsoft system. It has managed to captivate users, although it takes advantage of the fact that it is an almost imposed standard.

This browser has evolved and received important news, to become even better. The latest improvement now guarantees even more security for users, especially on less visited sites that could pose a problem.




One of Microsoft's biggest concerns with its systems and software has been security. Increasingly, the protections of users and their data are present, thus ensuring that they are not stolen and accessed by third parties.

To further reinforce the protection that Edge offers, Microsoft has brought an important news for this your browser. It arrives with the latest update, marked with the number 104.0.1293.47, and which is now being distributed to all users.

Another novelty of this Edge update is the way data from other browsers is imported. From now on, and for Chrome, it is no longer necessary for this browser to be installed. It is now possible to import directly from Google with only the user's access data.

These small changes to Edge show Microsoft's commitment to its browser. With each new version, there are improvements and new features that make it better and one of the most logical options for browsing the Internet.
