Edge is picking up another anticipated feature. Microsoft announced vertical tabs for its web browser earlier this year, an option that makes browsing with a bunch of active tabs a tad more convenient.
The software titan did not, however, provide an ETA to when this feature would go live.
But we now have intelligence that vertical tabs will make their debut in the Canary version of Edge in the very near future. And that’s because a prerelease version of Edge already comes with the vertical tabs feature built-in.
A video has been posted on Twitter that shows the new vertical tabs in action, meaning Microsoft is already testing the feature internally.
This is how it looks:
Back when Microsoft announced this feature in late March, this is what it said:
“Today we announced vertical tabs, a feature that helps you easily find and manage many open tabs at once. Microsoft Edge is the only browser that allows you to manage your tabs on the side with a single click. Vertical tabs is expected in the Insider channels in the next few months.”
Well, the next few months are here.
Simply a matter of time until Microsoft makes this feature available for everyone out there, first as part of a Canary build, and then gradually in the other channels too.
