Microsoft’s new browser is no longer going by the the code name: Project Spartan, and in Windows 10 build 10158, it’s now branded as Microsoft Edge. New features have been added to the browser, and we take a look at them.

This is also the case with the latest Windows Mobile build 10149. These new features in Microsoft Edge are as of build 10158, and don’t reflect anything new that might have been added in build 10159 which was released yesterday.

New to Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 build 10158 is the ability to add a Home button. To get it, go to Settings > Advanced Settings and turn on Show the Home button. Here you can also set your homepage.
A couple of other new features include the ability to drag and drop tabs to a new window. Audio will continue to play in the background when Edge is minimized, and as you can tell by the screenshots in this gallery, a new Dark theme.
A lot of these features are what you would expect from any browser. So, while they aren’t new per se, they are new to Microsoft Edge, and that is a good sign that it will be ready to use from launch day.
With the official launch date of Windows 10 less than a month away, Microsoft Edge is starting to shape up nicely.
