So, everything is available on one line that will save space so that the space to display web pages becomes wider.
2. Profile and Synchronization
Another interesting feature is the presence of profiles and synchronization features. If you are a Google Chrome user, then of course this feature has become commonplace. This feature allows you to log in to a Microsoft account and synchronize so that all information such as search history, frequently opened web pages, and other information will be saved.

3. Tracking Protection
Another interesting feature of the Microsoft Edge Chromium browser is security, which is tracking protection. This feature will make your browsing activity not tracked by any party.

This means that this feature will prevent vendors or other parties from gathering information about your browsing activities, such as frequently accessed web pages, what interests you, and more. This setting has three levels that you can choose from, namely Basic, Balanced, and Strict.
4. Can Install Google Chrome Extensions
This feature can be said to be the most interesting of all. Given that one of the earlier Microsoft Edge factors was less requested because of the lack of extensions or add-ons.
Microsoft Edge does have its own place that holds all the add-ons that you can add. But, on this Edge Chromium you can also add Google Chrome extensions on Edge Chromium, such as IDM extensions and others. So, the browser can be more powerful because it can be combined with every Chrome extension you need.
5. Dark Mode

Those are some interesting features found on Microsoft Edge Chromium. Of course there are many other features that you can feel yourself when using it. So, if you want to use the default Windows 10 browser, then please try using this Microsoft Edge Chromium.
