Last month, Microsoft released its Edge browser to iOS and Android users, but only in beta. It was available exclusively to Windows Insiders and required a PC running Windows 10 in order to sign up. But starting today, any iOS and Android users can download Microsoft Edge for their mobile device.

This will come as welcome news to users of Microsoft Edge's browser. The mobile browser will sync with the desktop version, allowing a seamless handoff via the "Continue on PC" feature. The browser will also sync bookmarks, passwords and reading lists, but not current tabs (though that functionality is forthcoming, according to The Verge.) The current iOS version of the Edge browser supports iPhones only, not iPads.

If you aren't enmeshed in the Microsoft ecosystem, this announcement probably won't mean much to you. But if you're a Windows 10 user and Microsoft Edge is your browser of choice, then your life just got a little bit easier.
