Microsoft has almost given up on its Windows Mobile operating system, but has been releasing apps such as Bink search, MS Office, Cortana, Arrow Launcer and more on rival platforms, Android and iOS, to make its presence felt in the smartphone segment. Now Microsoft's latest offering to Android and iOS is its web browser that debut in Windows 10 and replaced Internet Explorer — Edge

Also your passwords and favorites are synced across your device, if you're logged into your account. 

There's also a feature called 'continue on your PC' which allows you to immediately open the page you're looking on your mobile device, right on your PC.
