Microsoft Edge keyboard shortcuts

Microsoft Edge is a browser-based on Chromium open source project. This makes the Edge browser similar in functionality to chrome. As per Microsoft, Edge tends to provide some great enhancements in performance as compared to Google Chrome due to better tweaks in performance and memory optimizations. Being a Chromium project, you do get a bunch of experimental features to try on. They are called "Edge Flags" or simply "Flags"

Microsoft Edge is at an upper edge over other browsers in terms of privacy. It provides privacy control in your hands. You can manually set your desired privacy level as "Basic, Balanced, and Strict". Edge also blocks “potentially unwanted apps” from installing which is not unlike other browser protective measures but Edge seems to take it up a notch. Beyond security, Edge offers a clean-looking design that feels right at home on both Windows 10 and Mac. These are some good reasons to go with Edge browser if you can easily migrate from chrome.????
