Microsoft has been working on the tag search function for its browser Edge for quite some time. Finally, the company officially shared some details about the developers’ progress with this new feature. It should be mentioned that Microsoft did not release any statement about the function, but the Chromium-based tag search functions have been quietly enabled for a number of users. Notably, Microsoft’s Edge browser already features a vertical tagging function making multitasking easier.
As mentioned earlier, this feature has been in development for several months, and the feature made its first appearance back in August this year in the Canary version. To turn this feature on, all the users needed to do was to enable an experimental flag through the Edge://flags menu or simply use the command line to turn it on.
However, in the last Canary version, Microsoft has made this feature default setting. However, as of now, Microsoft has made it accessible only for a few users. There is a good chance that Microsoft is still conducting its either A or B testing of the tag search integration, which will explain the feature not being available across the globe to every user of the browser.
Microsoft tag search shares some similarities with Google Chrome’s tag search, for example, Edge’s tag search supports the Ctrl+ Shift+ A shortcut on Windows and other platforms. Using the tag search, the users should be able to find specific websites or tags more easily. However, Microsoft is not completely done with adding new features to its Edge browser.
A few sources have mentioned that the company is also engaged with developing new features and improvements for the browser, and most of the new features are focused on increasing the productivity of the user. The feature cannot be enabled with commands yet as it has not been launched globally.
