Microsoft Edge Updates

I’ve used many web browsers over the years and I’m currently using the Microsoft Edge browser across all platforms including iOS, MacOS abd Android. It is based on the Chromium open source project and other open source software.

Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all users to experience the web. The Google Chrome browser is also based on the Chromium project.

A recent update to Microsoft Edge added a feature that allows the open browser tabs to be displayed vertically rather than horizontally. A toggle button has been added to the left of the horizontal tabs

This button allows the user to switch between displaying horizontal or vertical tabs and is enabled from the edge settings page.


Show vertical tabs button

The list of the open tabs can then be displayed vertically, on the left-hand side of the browser window

The vertical list can be also be collapsed to display the icon representing the open tab(s).
