With the latest Microsoft update, we got the all-new Chromium-based Edge browser offering a simple, uncomplicated, and responsive approach. However, it retains its look from the legacy version of Edge in terms of showing the top and most visited websites, top site apps that are ready to download from the Store, My News Feed with recommended new content (which can also be personalized now), and also the weather and money widgets.
