Microsoft Edge’s New Feature Will Let You Manage Favorites With A Hold-And-Drag Gesture

No doubt, Microsoft Edge has an edge over other Chromium browsers due to its unique features. Microsoft has recently launched some new capabilities for the browser but there’s more to come.

The Redmond giant is reportedly working to bring a redesigned favorites menu experience for Android users. A Twitter user @alex193a recently spotted the functionality and stated that a drag and drop support for rearranging favorites will soon be available in Microsoft Edge.

With this change, it would be easier for you to customize the favorites menu according to your needs. But it remains to be seen when the new experience will be rolled out for everyone.

Microsoft Edge Is Getting Password Monitor, Vertical Tabs, & More

In related news, Microsoft announced some interesting features for its Microsoft Edge browser during its Microsoft 365 event which was held this week. The list of major features includes smart copy, collections, and vertical tabs for both Android and iOS users.

Speaking of the Collections features, Microsoft Edge will soon let you view, edit and manage Collections right from your mobile devices. The feature is coming in Spring this year. The Smart copy feature will allow you to copy and paste the content without worrying about the formatting. In other words, the fonts, links, etc will be retained in the destination document.

Another Password Monitor feature has been designed to ensure privacy in the browser. This tool monitors your passwords and sends an alert as soon as they are compromised on the dark web. Finally, the support for vertical tabs is another major change that will enable you to shift your tabs on the side of your screen. Microsoft Edge users would be allowed to choose the specific side, though.

Furthermore, improvements to Immersive Reader and InPrivate mode are some minor changes that are currently in the pipeline.
