Microsoft has made a strong commitment to Edge, the web browser that came as a natural substitute for Internet Explorer and is struggling to position itself as one of the most popular options. Among its features, it is found that it is based on Chromium and is compatible with a large number of extensions with which to increase its functionalities. These add-ons can help us to organize and be aware of all the news that happens throughout the day along with the information and weather forecast.
And it is that the Internet has currently become the main source to be able to be informed almost instantly of any event that occurs. That is why we are likely to use Edge to stay on top of current affairs. To avoid having to go from web to web reading news, we can make use of extensions that allow us to manage them, so that we can group all those that appear in the media that interest us the most and have them available from a single place.
