Microsoft Edge may soon get a new split-screen feature

0

Microsoft’s Edge web browser is based on Google‘s Chromium open-source project: The tech giant is now reportedly planning to add a new feature to its Edge browser that supports cross-platform syncing. According to a report by The Verge, Microsoft is testing a new split-screen feature for the Edge browser. This feature will allow users to compare two different tabs side-by-side. The report claims that this feature was first spotted by a Reddit user named Leopeva64-2. As per the report, the split-screen feature is now available with an experimental flag on the beta, dev and canary versions of Microsoft Edge.
Microsoft Edge split-screen feature: How will it work
The report suggests that when Microsoft enables this feature on the Edge browser, a new button will start appearing beside the address bar. Users will be able to use this button to split an Edge window into two side-by-side separate tabs.
It is important to note that Windows already allow users to compare tabs next to each other. Users can drag the tab to the right or left of the screen and use the built-in Windows split view. However, doing this can be hectic and may not offer desired results every time unless they drag the tab all the way.

Microsoft Edge’s built-in split-view feature
The built-in split-view feature in the Edge browser makes it easier for users to open separate tabs with a single click. With this feature, users don’t have to re-arrange their tabs or open up a new window of a browser for separate tabs.
Microsoft has ended support for the Edge web browser on both Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 operating systems. The company has even ended support for Microsoft Edge’s WebView2 for both operating systems. WebView2 helps developers to embed web content in apps.
Furthermore, Google has also ended Chrome’s support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. This means Windows users will now have to upgrade to Windows 10 or Windows 11 to use the browser.
