The user’s privacy has been a major concern in this digital age. An article published by researchers detailed that on average a person generates 2 MB of personal data ever minute of browsing.
The Microsoft Edge browser based on chromium engine is done a great job with enhanced privacy settings as well as multi-tasking with browser tabs.
The private browsing helps in maintaining the privacy of user without storing any records like browsing history, cookies and cache files, login passwords, etc. A similar feature is also available in the chrome browser which is known as incognito mode.
While private browsing helps in maintaining privacy, the new tabs options help in multi-tasking. Using the tabs feature, you can browse through multiple website pages without closing an active page. The switch between tabs is quite easy and painless.
The only difference between private browsing and new tabs is browsing history and storage. The new tab stores all the information within the browser, while the private browser will auto-delete upon exit.
