Microsoft is developing some new features and improvements for edge browser, which uses the same chromium code as Google Chrome, opera and brave.Because browsers use the same basic code as chrome, Microsoft can eventually focus on adding unique features to edge rather than improving page compatibility.

Microsoft is also contributing to the open source Chromium project, with Edge engineers submitting more than 1,600 codes in 2019. some of these contributions include smooth rolling, improved phas support, accessibility, arm64 support, better performance, and more. According to the road map, Microsoft is developing some new features for Edge browser, including supporting Chrome themes.

Microsoft will allow users to install and use themes from the chrome online app store. Microsoft is in the process of internal testing, but there are some obstacles. Micro already supports extended synchronization between devices in the edge dev version. In the summer, Microsoft Edge will also enable synchronization of browsing history between devices. The classic Microsoft edge comes with its unique ink support, allowing users to use the stylus on supported devices and perform many operations, such as highlighting and so on. In the near future, the new version of Microsoft edge will also be supported by web ink.

In addition, Microsoft edge nifty version improvements include setting customized photos as the background of "new tab", supporting PDF with read aloud function, clearing browsing data function, enabling users to keep specific cookies, easily preventing websites from automatically playing video and audio, and updating toolbars with share button. Microsoft is also considering user feedback on transparent themes, fluent design, tab side features of classic edge, and Cortana integration in chromium edge. The company does not currently plan to enable mouse gestures and Google account integration in edge.
