The drought of good Chrome alternative on Android ends as Microsoft has finally released its Edge web browser. While Microsoft allowed everyone to test the app on Android, the Edge for iPhone was only available to the select beta testers.

Microsoft Edge offers interesting features such as Reading List, Dark Theme, Reading View, and Roaming Passwords across your PC and phone.

Anyway, Microsoft is saying that Edge for Android is available in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, India, and the UK. So rather than relying completely on its failing (or rather, failed) mobile operating system, it is a good move from Microsoft to bring more services to platforms that are widely adopted across the globe. iOS is definitely one of them.

Continue on PC: Go anywhere and pick up where you left off by seamlessly moving content between your mobile device and PC (requires Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update). The current version of the app is 1.0.0.1267. It's a browser for dedicated Edge users on desktop to carry their browsing experience with them when they shift to their phones.

Microsoft is planning to support tab syncing and the iPad at some point in the future, but both features probably won't arrive until next year.

Similarly, the Android version is available in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada (English and French), China, France and India (English).

Via the listing on Android's Google Play Store, Edge on Android has been installed over 500,000 times, with a total rating of 4.6 stars.
