Microsoft continues to strive to improve the end-user experience in the new Edge browser, and it seems that one of the company's priorities is to bring the top features of the old Edge application to the new Chromium-based one.
Currently the old version of Microsoft Edge and the new one supported by Chromium are available in Windows 10, but there is no doubt that at some point the old version will be withdrawn.
Microsoft is currently preparing a new all-in-one browser, as it is the default browser in Windows 10, Windows 7,8, 8.1 and macOS. In addition, we expect a preview version for Linux to be released by the end of 2020.
Recently Microsoft added another feature of the old Edge to the Chromium version. We are talking about the file download experience, which now offers new options for opening, saving as, saving or canceling the download.
The feature is currently available in the Dev and Canary versions of the browser, but users will need to enable it manually from the settings screen. We do not know when we will see it in the stable version, but there is a possibility that the next release will make the new feature available to everyone.
"We are looking at the application of functions from the old Microsoft Edge. One of the items you requested is a feature that asks users if they want to open, save as, save or download or cancel the download of a file. This week, we're excited to announce that this setting is now available on the Dev and Canary channels! We expect that all versions with version> = 87.0.629.0 have this feature ", he says Microsoft.
