Microsoft to Add Tab Preview Feature in the Classic Edge Browser Soon

In pursuit of bringing all the important features from its legacy Edge to the new Chromium-based Edge browser, Microsoft adds the Tab Preview support in the new Edge’s next update. With this addition, users can hover over the background tabs in Edge browser to see a quick preview of them and decide whether to open them or not. The feature will be added to the Edge Beta version in June’s update.

Microsoft Edge Beta to Get Tab Preview Support

As competing with the market leader (Google’s Chrome) takes a lot, Microsoft is doing nothing less with its Edge browser. The maker is gradually shifting all the productive features from its legacy Edge to the new Chromium-based Edge browser. And the latest one coming to this classic version is the Tab Preview.

This feature is already available in the Edge Canary, and Dev builds and will be coming to Beta channel users in June’s update as per the updated roadmap. As Microsoft wrote in the changelog,

“Tab Preview provides an easy way for you to hover over each tab and see more info at a glance (e.g., site content snapshot, full title, domain) to quickly find what you are looking for,” Microsoft said in a changelog posted earlier this year.”

Microsoft also promised that the changes coming to Edge browser are fully supported with Windows 10 latest animations, thus should incur no problems. Tab Preview is a fairly significant feature that lets you decide which tab must be opened among the clutter when you’re at work.

Tab Preview lets users see a snapshot of the background tab by just hovering over it. Users can see the site’s favicon, full title, domain, and a screenshot of its details. This helps the user to pick relevant ones and proceed with them.
