Microsoft will strip the Edge browser of child mode and a number of other features
Microsoft's proprietary web browser will soon lose several features. The Edge 117 browser, which is currently in beta testing and will be available to the public on September 14, will remove the Math Solver, Picture Dictionary, Quotes, Grammar Tools, and Kids Mode.
The company believes that removing the features will make the process of interacting with the browser more convenient, as well as optimize the "Other Tools" menu section. Microsoft previously mentioned the upcoming changes in the description of the beta version of the browser, which became available to insiders on August 25, so the disappearance of the mentioned features will not be something unexpected.
As Microsoft seeks to expand the user base of its browser to compete with Google Chrome, developers have to find ways to make their product more appealing to potential users. In some cases, the presence of a large number of additional options may be perceived by users as an attempt by developers to bloat the application by making its functionality redundant. Obviously, these features are popular with a small portion of the browser's users, so the decision was made to get rid of them.
