Microsoft is working on a built-in file and note sharing service for its Edge browser. The new feature is called "Drop". The data you are sharing via the Drop service will be synced across all your instances of Edge, regardless of the platform. E.g. a note filled in on Windows will be available on other Windows devices, along with Edge on Linux and Android running under the same Microsoft account.
