Edge Microsoft’s new browser is based on Google’s open-source Chromium. It feels faster and cleaner. Also it has good privacy control, by default for the new Edge is the so-called Balanced setting. It blocks trackers from sites you’ve never been to, means ads may be less personalised. Google is claiming it’s seeing the privacy light, but have you noticed that on Chrome you have to click on the Advanced tab before you get to any Privacy setting information? With the new Edge, Privacy and Services is near the top of Preferences.

In New Tab page there are four settings for the look of the page. Aside from the custom setting, new Edge offers Focused, Inspirational and Informational.
