Microsoft Edge on Android gets Adblock Plus integration and some performance improvements


Microsoft Edge might not be the most popular browser on Android, but that doesn’t stop Microsoft from updating it with new features from time-to-time. Now the company has added four new features to the Android version, one of which is the highly anticipated the AdBlock Plus.

The new Adblock plus integration allows users to block unwanted ads and enjoy a seamless web browsing experience on their smartphone. It can be enabled from the app settings, by going into the Content Blockers section. Here you can turn on the feature, and manage Acceptable ads, by adding the list of preferred websites to the Wishlist. It should be noted that Adblock Plus is currently the most popular ad blocking tool in the world and is widely used on both smartphones and PCs.

Besides Adblock Plus, the new update also brings a new visual search feature, which allows you to look for contact info, identify landmarks, or find similar images based on a photo. The feature works similarly to Google lens and does not need to be enabled either. You can start using it immediately after downloading the app. Book reading experience has also been improved thanks to the inclusion of bookmarks and better text spacing. Lastly, the company claims to have made some performance improvements to the browser as well.

While there might not be a lot of features available on the Edge currently, it doesn’t look like Microsoft is planning on giving up on the bowser any time soon. The company on the other hand is taking its time to roll out the right updates that will improve the performance and experience on both Android and iOS devices.

Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android now comes integrated with an ad blocker

A week after rolling out a beta version for AdBlock Plus for Edge, Microsoft is now releasing the feature for Android and iOS. With the new ad blocker provided by Adblock Plus, users will be able to block unwanted ads and enjoy a seamless web browsing experience on their smartphones. The feature can be enabled in the app settings and does not require any separate add-ons.

Adblock Plus is currently the most popular ad blocking tool for both smartphones and PCs. Though other browsers like Chrome and Firefox also come integrated with ad blockers, they aren’t known to work as efficiently as Adblock Plus. Google Chrome’s ad blocker only works well in removing some banner ads and video ads, while Adblock Plus is known to work with almost all websites and is successful in removing all kinds of ads. This should help give Microsoft Edge an added advantage over the other browsers.

That said, Microsoft Edge still has a lot of catching up to do. The browser was launched last year in December and has reached 5 million downloads recently. It’s a lot less if you consider Firefox’s 100 million and Chrome’s 1 billion downloads on Android.

However, Microsoft doesn’t plan on giving up on Edge any time soon. The company is putting a lot of time and effort in coming up with the right features. One of the browser’s key features is the flexibility of continuous browsing, which allows users to easily transition between browsing on different devices. Last week, Microsoft also added a visual search features to Edge, which works like Google Lens, and it is expected to be available on Android and iOS soon.
