Microsoft has been finding it quite difficult to make the desktop version of Edge as popular as Chrome or Firefox for example. However, there is an entirely different story when it comes to Android and iOS powered devices. Edge is one of the world’s fastest mobile browsers and this is why it is used by millions of people on a daily basis. The reason behind this is that Microsoft is constantly releasing software updates for Edge that are taking its performances to the next level. In fact, a new update has just been made available for download.
Microsoft Edge 126.96.36.19948 Update
If you enjoy using Edge on your smartphone, then you should be pleased to find out that a new update is now rolling out via Microsoft’s official OTA (over the air) channels. This means that all Edge fans who are keeping their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network are eligible to download the update as soon as possible.
General Bug Fixes and Performances Improvements
The new update doesn’t come with any groundbreaking features or changes to the user interface and it makes up for that by introducing general bug fixes that are tackling various issues. Not only that, but the update also brings a handful of performance improvements that are tweaking the mobile browser’s software so that it can run much faster than usual.
How to Manually Download the Update
Edge fans who don’t like having to wait for the update to arrive via OTA channels can also choose to manually download and install the update in the form of APK (Android Package Kit). APK releases a special type of updates and the only requirement to install them is to use an Android powered smartphone that has the “Unknown Sources” option set as enabled in the Settings panel.
