Karlston posted a topic in Software NewsMicrosoft announces improvements coming to Collections in Edge Microsoft today announced a few new improvements coming to the Collections feature in the Edge browser. The biggest change is that Collections now features a new UI, akin to the redesigned History and Favorites menu. The company also announced that there is a new experience for Downloads, something that we spotted earlier today. Just like the History, Download, and Favorites section, the Collection menu now hovers from the toolbar and does not pin to the side of the browser automatically. Those that want the pane to stay pinned to the browser can manually use the pin icon to place it permanently. The new UI greatly improves the feature and makes it easy and faster to add items to a Collection or access saved links. Another nifty feature being added to the utility is a new “+” icon that allows users to add the current webpage right from the pop-up menu by hovering over the desired Collection item, negating the need to perform multiple clicks. The icon also shows up on Collections lists when the pane is pinned to the browser window. The refreshed UI also retains all the functionality of the tool, such as the ability to send lists to OneNote and Excel, Pinterest integration, and the price comparison feature. These options are present in the ellipsis menu as before. Users can – like before – also add notes into Collections directly via the notes icon. The new Collections and Downloads improvements are now rolling out to Edge users running Canary and Dev channel builds. There is no word on when the improvements will make it to the Beta channel and, eventually, the Stable version. Microsoft announces improvements coming to Collections in Edge
Karlston posted a topic in Software NewsCollections is now live in Edge Dev and Edge Canary Today, Microsoft announced that Collections is now enabled by default in the Edge Dev and Canary channels. The feature was announced at Build this year, and then it made its debut back in August. It's been hidden behind a flag though, up until now. Collections is exactly what it sounds like. It allows you to collect images, text, links, and so on from around the web and group them into categories. You can use it for shopping, research, and plenty of other use cases. In the blog post, Microsoft also noted some improvements that it made since the feature was first introduced. Collections now sync between devices, even though you still can't sync your browser history. There's also now an option to open all of the links in a Collection, and they're easier to share as well. Finally, support for dark theme was added. Again, this feature is available now in the Canary and Dev branches. It will likely make its way to the Beta branch whenever the next update is, but it won't be in the release build when Edge Chromium is released to the general public on January 15. It will probably be in the update after that. Source: Collections is now live in Edge Dev and Edge Canary (Neowin)
