Today Microsoft Edge is dropping that beta label and rolling out to the public. The company is now working on new features internally and have not yet been made available for testing with the Insiders.

Microsoft Edge now also comes with a dark theme and users can now enjoy this popular theme on their phone, in addition to their PC.More news: Google bans apps that push annoying ads to the Android lockscreen

The headline feature is undoubtedly Continue on PC, which makes it easy for users to transfer their browsing activity from their phones to a desktop or laptop running Windows 10. But luckily, the browser allows you to choose between Yahoo, Google and AskJeeves (the 90s called... they want you back, Jeeves) too. The Microsoft Edge for iOS app is available at the Apple Store here.
