The ‘old’ version of Microsoft Edge will stop being supported (including security updates) on 9th March 2021.
If you are still using the older version, it is strongly advised that you plan to transition to an up-to-date browser.
What’s the new version of Edge?
This is the new and improved version of Microsoft’s web browser, that is responding to the way in which the world has changed in the last 12 months.
New logo: with the new browser comes a brand, new logo.
Security: The new Edge will be a faster, more modern browser in terms of delivering security updates, which means security can be more responsive.
Multiple profiles: although the lines between work, home and school have blended, you data doesn’t need to. The new Edge comes with multiple user profiles, that you can switch between with the click of a button.
Collections: a new feature that allows more visual learners to track key links.
More intelligent searches: using Microsoft Search in Bing will save you lots of time time tracking down internal documents or files by simply typing what you’re looking for into the address bar, just as you would search the web. You can search for people in your organisation, files, groups and locations.
Vertical tabs: you can switch up your orientation by having vertical tabs, instead of along the bottom of your screen.
Optimised for Windows 10: you can sync your passwords, favourites and settings across multiple devices.
