After releasing the March firmware update for Xbox One and Xbox Series, the company announced a major improvement to Microsoft Store on consoles.

On March 9, 2021, Microsoft released regular Patch Tuesday updates for all supported Windows versions. These updates brought lots of security fixes and several zero-day vulnerabilities patches. Unfortunately, some severe bugs arrived alongside security improvements. Many users report having trouble printing documents from different apps, and Microsoft has already confirmed the problem.
According to a recent report from Petri, Microsoft is about to introduce new webcams. If the rumors are true, expect a new webcam reveal during the Surface Spring event alongside the updated Surface Laptop 4.
Microsoft started rolling out the March update for Xbox One and Xbox Series consoles. This is a relatively minor update that only brings several improvements.
On March 9, 2021, Microsoft ended Edge Legacy support. The app debuted with Windows 10 back in July 2015. From now, Microsoft will focus its efforts on modern Edge Chromium. If you do not want to switch to the newest version, you can keep using Edge Legacy for some time. Just be aware that you will no longer receive patches, bug fixes, and critical updates. Besides, Microsoft will start bombarding you with banners, urging you to update to Edge Chromium.
The time has finally come to say goodbye to the classic Edge, also known as Edge Legacy. Today, Microsoft ends supporting this browser, which means it will no longer receive new features, fixes, or security patches. Microsoft encourages users to switch to Edge Chromium to remain safe on the Internet and receive timely fixes, improvements, and new features.
Microsoft Edge offers the same user experience on all desktop platforms, excluding a few Microsoft Account-specific features missing on Linux. However, on mobile platforms things are different. On Android, Microsoft Edge is still on Chromium 77. On iOS, the browser uses an entirely different engine due to Apple's restrictive policies. This fragmentation makes developing the browser much more challenging and slower. To maintain all three versions and release new features simultaneously, Microsoft has to code a single thing three times. The first is for desktop, the second is for Android, and the third is for iOS. To get rid of this obstacle, Microsoft is working on unifying the codebase between all platforms.
Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge use lots of shared code thanks to the underlying Chromium project, but the latter offers more exciting and unique features. The Immersive Reader is one of the tools that set Edge apart from the mainstream competition. It allows users to customize the reading experience and make it more accessible. Microsoft continually improves Immersive Reader and adds new capabilities. Besides, it actively enhances compatibility with different websites. Wikipedia is the latest such addition.
