Microsoft rolled out the newly designed Edge browser today. The new browser is based on the Chromium engine (the same core engine used in Google’s Chrome browser). The goals with the new browser are “delivering better compatibility for everyone, less fragmentation for web developers, and a partnership with the Chromium community to improve the Chromium engine itself.”
The new Microsoft Edge will eventually be included via Windows Update, but if you’d like to get a copy now, you can download it from Microsoft.
If you’re an eWallet® user on the PC who has used Microsoft Edge as your default browser, you may be wondering about eWallet’s AutoPass feature that inserts secure login information from eWallet into a web page. The good news is that eWallet and AutoPass have already been upgraded to support the new version of Edge. Simply follow the prompt to download the AutoPass for Microsoft Edge extension the first time you click on a link in eWallet. And if you plan to continue to use the legacy version of Edge, that’s fine too; the AutoPass extension for that version continues to work and be supported by us. And of course the AutoPass feature continues to work with the Chrome and Firefox browsers as well.
Check out the new Microsoft Edge and AutoPass extension, and let us know what you think.
