Microsoft said that more than 60% of companies using multiple browsers will benefit directly from this new feature because it does not need to switch to the Internet Explorer browser to run old Internet Explorer-based applications. Microsoft also hopes to position the new Edge as a privacy-focused browser that will provide additional privacy controls in order to give customers more choice and transparency.
The new Microsoft Edge browser will introduce three levels of privacy: Unrestricted, Balanced and Strict. As the name implies, changing privacy to Unrestricted will allow third parties to collect as much data as possible, and switching to Strict means you don't want to disclose your data to unknown third parties. This will enable Microsoft Edge to adjust the way third parties track users on the network.
Microsoft confirmed that these features will appear on the new Edge browser, but we don't know when the company will provide them to the public, but users who want to try it out can download the Microsoft Edge development version or the Canary Canary version for testing.
