Microsoft is reportedly testing a new split screen feature for Edge that will allow users to compare two tabs side by side.
The feature was discovered by a Reddit user named Leopeva64-2 and is now available in the beta, dev, and canary versions of Microsoft Edge with an experimental flag, The Verge reports.
Once the feature is enabled, a new button will appear next to the address bar, allowing users to split an Edge window into two separate side-by-side tabs.
Windows already lets you compare tabs side-by-side by dragging the tab to the right or left of the screen and using Windows’ built-in split view, but this is a pain unless you drag the tab all the way there, the report said.
This built-in split view in Edge makes it easier with a single click, without having to rearrange your tabs or open a new browser window.
Meanwhile, Microsoft ended support for the Edge web browser on both Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1.
The company has also dropped support for Microsoft Edge WebView2 for both operating systems.
WebView2 is a developer control for embedding web content into applications.
In addition, Chrome support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 has also ended and users must now upgrade to Windows 10 or Windows 11 to use the browser.
