Microsoft is working on Microsoft Edge ‘Phoenix’ with a new UI and features

Microsoft Edge 'Phoenix' is an internal reimagining of the Edge web browser with a new UI and more features. It will have a new Windows 11-style user interface and unique productivity features. The browser will be deeply integrated with Windows, and will look more like a native app for Windows 11.

The Redmond firm is working on Edge 'Phoenix' since the Summer of 2022, and now some of its features are starting to appear in Edge preview builds as experimental flags.


For example, the recently found Split Screen option is part of the 'Phoenix' browser. In the user interface, you will find rounded tabs and controls.

In addition, Microsoft is working on a new feature called "Tab Activity Center" that will provide information about browser usage over a period of time. This feature is a lot like Screen Time or Digital Wellbeing on iPhone's iOS or Android.

The Phoenix project focuses on integrating Microsoft Edge with the Windows operating system. In particular, it will allow you to use it as a password manager.

At the moment, it is not known whether Microsoft plans to release a global update to Edge or whether the new features will be introduced to the browser gradually as new versions of the browser are released. Anyway, Microsoft is all about making the Edge browser competitive and full of new ideas and features to attract more users.
