Search faster in the address bar. No need to go to a website to search for pictures of adorable penguins. Stay put and save time by entering your search in the handy address bar. You’ll get search suggestions, results from the web, your browsing history, and favorites right on the spot. Microsoft Edge is the only browser that lets you take notes, write, doodle, and highlight directly on webpages. Add a few secret ingredients to a recipe right on the screen to share with your fellow amateur chefs, collaborate on a new project with your coworkers, or have fun with your kids—the web is your palette.
Comparing Internet Explorer vs Microsoft Edge is like comparing apples to oranges. Because your business is unique and nobody except you can decide, which is better for your company. But we can add some fun to your research and suggest some new comparison parameters.

Ok, now let's compare the UI. Looks like Internet Explorer has more user-friendly interface than Microsoft Edge because it's bigger. At least on our screenshots


To compare the popularity of the solutions we counted how many alternatives people search for each of them on the Internet. And it turns out that Internet Explorer is more popular than Microsoft Edge

Now let's look at the recent activities of our competitors:

- Microsoft Edge comes to Android and iPhone (in 2017)
- Microsoft makes its Edge browser the safest in the world (in 2016)
- Microsoft’s new browser will be called Edge (in 2015)
- Windows 10 will have a new Browser that is not Internet Explorer (in 2015)

Looks like Microsoft Edge was recently more active than Internet Explorer (at least in our news). We also found some news, in which Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge meet head to head:

2017 - Microsoft Edge comes to Android and iPhone to bury Internet Explorer


Microsoft announced the general availability of its Edge Browser (the followup to Internet Explorer) for iOS and Android. The mobile version offers many of its familiar desktop/tablet features, including Favorites, Reading Lists and New Tab Pages. The company’s also added some new tools. Roaming Passwords are now on-board, giving users the ability to sync passwords cross platform on mobile and desktop. There’s also dark theme. That’s basically what it sounds like, offering a black desktop instead of the default white/gray one, which should be easier on some eyes. The addition of Edge is an important piece of Microsoft’s new mobile strategy. At the very least additions like Edge and Cortana to iOS and Android will make it easier for Windows 10 users to have their existing smartphones play nice with their PCs.
