The old version of Edge works similar to Internet Explorer in some respects, and the rendering engine was not as widely supported as Chromium. The good news is that Microsoft has removed all the good stuff from Chromium and replaced much of it with their own APIs. This means that if you’re not a Google fan, you shouldn’t worry too much about using the new Edge Browser.

OK, so today we’re going to talk about how to attach web pages to the Windows 10 taskbar via Edge. This feature is very useful if you want to launch a website quickly, especially if Edge is not open yet. The task is super easy to accomplish, so let’s see how we can do it now.
