[Update: Only being tested] Windows 10 now begs users to stick with Microsoft Edge when installing Chrome or other browsers

[Update: Only being tested] Windows 10 now begs users to stick with Microsoft Edge when installing Chrome or other browsers

Microsoft really, really wants you to use its Edge browser. When you search for the Chrome download page in Edge, you get a giant banner telling you how great Edge is. When you're on a laptop, Windows 10 tells you that Chrome is draining your battery. Now Microsoft is about to get even more invasive, by showing a full alert message whenever you try to change the default browser.

Some Galaxy Note9s have an annoying 'light leak' line off to the side of the display

Every flagship phone seems to carry with it a handful of problems that don't get noticed except statistically long after reviews land and the launch is over. The Note9, it turns out, is no different. We've spotted reports that the curved glass display on the Note9 has a bit of a gap on the side that results in a bright line of "leaked" light along the edge.

However, you can also access some really sketchy stuff out there that you probably don't want your kids absorbing.

Microsoft Edge now available for Android tablets

Microsoft Edge now available for Android tablets

In October of last year, Microsoft announced it was bringing its Edge web browser to iOS and Android. The browser is primarily targeted at people already using Edge on Windows 10, as it syncs all data across your devices (much like Chrome and Chrome for Android/iOS). The Android version was released later that month, and Microsoft has continued to update it since then.

LastPass updates Android app to support Microsoft's Edge browser [APK Download]

As Microsoft's abandonment of Windows phone continued apace this year, the company moved to release more of its core apps on Android, and that included its Edge browser. It's been pretty successful, with more than one million installs, probably due to the "continuous browsing experience" it offers Windows 10 users. Now, there's even more good news for fans of the app.

Microsoft Edge out of beta on the Play Store

Microsoft Edge out of beta on the Play Store

A few years ago, it would have been unthinkable that Microsoft would launch a mobile version of its web browser on Android, but we live in strange times. After dominating the desktop software space for ages, Microsoft has been unable to break into mobile. So, it's launching Android versions of its apps, including the Edge browser. This app popped up as a beta some weeks back, but now it's final.

The Android version went live a week later, and despite having limited functionality at first, it has the basics right.

Microsoft Edge is coming to Android and iOS

Microsoft Edge is coming to Android and iOS

Microsoft's browsers, for the most part, have been limited to the company's own operating systems. There are exceptions to this, such as the short-lived Internet Explorer for Mac, but that has been the general rule. Earlier today, the company announced something unexpected - Edge for Android and iOS.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 will reportedly come in two large sizes, including a bezel-less 6.2-inch "plus" variant

Samsung's Galaxy S8 will reportedly come in two large sizes, including a bezel-less 6.2-inch "plus" variant

Out of all of the Galaxy S7-series phones that I've seen, the majority of them have been the smaller, 5.1-inch model. That's odd, considering the fact that the S7 edge outsells the S7, but it's entirely understandable why people would choose the S7 over the edge model; it's easier to hold, less prone to accidental screen touches, more durable, and less expensive.

With those things in mind, have a look at this: according to VentureBeat's Evan Blass and The Bell, a Korean publication, the Galaxy S8 will come in two phablet-sized, dual-edged variants, and the larger of the two will feature an enormous edge-to-edge display.
