Microsoft's Edge has a morphed into an impressive web browser and is our browser of choice for Windows 10.

However, one of the biggest issues with using any web browser is that we want to share the content we find as we browse the web, with other devices. We want our passwords across our devices. How often to do you save a page to your bookmarks, or leave a tab open which you want to reference later? With Safari Cloud Tabs you can easily see the opened tabs on other devices, on your Mac. This makes it really easy to continue your browsing on your Mac, from a tab on your iPad.

With this in mind, Microsoft has released it needs an Android version of its Edge browser. The main reason for this is to enable smartphone users to share content with their Windows 10 PC. As an example, if you find and save an interesting website on your phone, the "Continue on PC" feature will push the same content to your Windows 10 PC.

As you would expect, Edge for Android also synchronise your desktop data, so you'll find your bookmarks, passwords and reading list. You can also set any search engine on Edge for Android, from Bing, Google through to Yahoo.

You also receive a private mode, a voice search feature and a QR code reader, enabling you to simply scan and read QR codes.
