A new split-screen capability for Edge that enables users to compare two tabs side by side is apparently being tested by Microsoft.
According to The Verge, the function was found by Reddit user Leopeva64-2 and is now marked as experimental in Microsoft Edge’s beta, development, and canary releases.
A new button will show up next to the address bar once the feature is activated, allowing users to divide an Edge window into two distinct tabs side by side.
According to the source, Windows already has a built-in split view that allows you to compare tabs next to each other, but doing so is difficult unless you pull the tab all the way to the edge of the screen.
Edge’s built-in split view makes things simpler with just one click, eliminating the need to reorganise your tabs or start a new browser window.
Microsoft, meanwhile, stopped supporting the Edge web browser on Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1.
Additionally, Microsoft Edge WebView2 for both operating systems no longer receives support from the firm.
An application’s web content can be embedded using the developer control WebView2.
Users must now update to Windows 10 or Windows 11 in order to use Chrome anymore because support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 has also been discontinued.
