The Collections feature for Microsoft Edge, announced at this year’s Build Developer Conference, is now available to all Edge Insider browser users in Canary and Dev channels, the Microsoft team said today. This means that the user no longer needs to go to the edge of the micro-flags to start, and the Collections icon appears next to the profile picture icon by default.
With Collections, Microsoft wants to provide Edge users with an easy way to store web content for future reference. This feature allows users to manage web pages and copy text, images, and links to dedicated comment panels. When you sign in to Edge with a Microsoft account, Collections also syncs between devices.
“We designed Collections based on user’s network habits,” the Edge team wrote in today’s announcement. If you like online shopping, then this feature can help collect and compare items. If you’re the organizer of an event or trip, Collections can help you aggregate all your travel or event information to help you refine and make your event a success. If you’re a teacher or student, Collections can help you manage web searches, create course plans, or report. No matter what you do online, Collections can help. “
Although Collections is currently available for desktop use only and does not have built-in sharing, it is a very useful feature.
