Microsoft has been building up its newest browser, Microsoft Edge, and it’s tricking out the latest platform with some bold features, including ad blocking.
The Internet platform launched with Windows 10, the company’s latest operating system update that came out last year. Microsoft Edge is still in its early development, but a session at the Build Conference in San Francisco this week provided some insight on where it’s headed, reported ZDNet.
On the list of development to-dos: adding a plug-in store, building a download and save prompt, and fixing crash problems. Right after those issues, as No. 4 on the list, Microsoft (MSFT) is looking at building an ad-blocking feature directly into the Edge browser. This could come as soon as the next version, according to the breakdown on ZDNet.
