For quite a while now we have known Microsoft’s new web browser that replaces Internet Explorer and is shipping with Windows 10 as Project Spartan. Microsoft has finally got rid of the codename and has officially named the browser Microsoft Edge. The new name matches up with its rendering engine Edge.
Today’s web surfers aren’t content just to visit websites to look at cute cat and puppy pictures. Sure, few can resist surfing for cute cat pictures and constantly checking out the latest news, but sometimes plain old browsing isn’t enough. You want more relevant content, faster, and preferably without having to check a bunch of websites to get your news, email or other site content. That’s one reason why Opera launched extensions, small enhancements that extend the functionality of your browser, for its desktop browser two years ago and started deeply integrating them into the browser.
