It is imperative to update your browser regularly to benefit from new features, but also to repair security vulnerabilities that may be discovered over the months. Learn how to quickly update your software.
Learning how to properly configure Edge like a pro is no secret: you must above all keep it up to date so that a majority of the work is done. Browser updates can be annoying, especially when you're hard at work or watching a series on Netflix, but are absolutely necessary to ensure optimal use of your software. These patches, often monthly, have two very distinct and equally important uses.
The first is to fix security vulnerabilities that are discovered regularly. Perfect software does not exist and these security holes can be more or less important, allowing malicious sites to harvest personal information stored in your browser and, by extension, in your computer.
The second reason is to obtain new functionalities, new options to better manage your different tabs or even your favourites, but also to improve the performance of your software and thus follow the evolution of Web technologies.
