Microsoft Edge for iOS is a pretty solid alternative to Safari and/or whatever else you may me currently use. Give it a try!

No benefit to using Edge over any of the other browsers.

@dredurr Better video quality on Netflix web; but no point of using it on an iPhone, indeed.
@dredurr there may not be a benefit to using Edge, but there IS a benefit to searching with Bing rather than Google. You earn rewards points for every search which can be redeemed for gift cards and more
@kcucchia why not just use Bing in safari? You can select Bing as the default search engine.
@dredurr if you use edge on PC, there's a button that let's you continue your session over there.
@dredurr um, someone like me uses a Windows PC at home (since I'm a PC gaming enthusiast) and might have an iPhone. 😜
So many negative comments and its still the #1 product today 🤔 Interesting...
Sorry, Microsoft, but - MSN/Hotmail, Zune, Windows 8, Bing, etc. It's gonna take much more to win my ♥️ back from @Google.
@mccataldo don’t forget windows phone, holodeck, surface, Skype, danger, windows watch, Xbox... plus dozens others. All ” me too” from MS
No thanks

TL;DR: Don't use Edge (yet). Try using the mobile version of your desktop browser for features like tab sharing.

While the switch from IE to Edge did mark the end of an era (of nightmares) for web developers, Edge still falls a bit behind in terms of adoption of web standards. https://caniuse.com/

This mobile version of Edge only offers benefits to those that are still using Edge on PC. While I can't outright say "for the love of all that is holy, do NOT use IE" anymore, I can still say, for your sake, don't use Edge.

Switching to Chrome, Firefox, or Safari on your desktop is still preferable. Better all around support for modern web technologies, much larger selection of browser extensions, more customization, generally faster load times. All of these browsers offer mobile versions as well.

Credit where credit is due: Edge has been closing the gap at an impressive rate since its release. Not there yet, though.

Pros:

Is a great browser for posting multiple comments on net neutrality to the FCC a year after you die

Cons:

Doesn't offer anything that faster, sleeker, more feature-rich browsers offer
