The Microsoft Edge browser is the default browser in Windows 11. However, users can switch to their preferred or favorite browser anytime. Edge is based on Chromium, similar to Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers today.
Microsoft has added a new feature in Edge that allows users to get the latest updates faster. When on, Microsoft Edge will automatically update when the browser is idle. Your tabs will automatically be restored.
Turning on the “Get the latest Microsoft Edge updates faster” feature in Windows 11 can help ensure that your Edge browser stays up-to-date with the latest security updates and bug fixes.
