Microsoft Edge browser is reportedly getting a new Games panel


Microsoft’s move to revamp Edge using Chromium has finally started paying off as the browser’s market share is slowly ascending. The tech giant is continuously rolling out new features and tools to make the Edge browser quick and user friendly. Now, the company is reportedly working to add a new ‘Games’ panel on the browser. According to a report by Neowin, known tipster Leopeva64 has spotted the new panel in the latest version of the Edge Canary. The report further mentions that the feature is currently available only for a few users and it is disable by default. The feature needs to be toggled on by going in the Settings > Appearance > Games button.
As per the report, after enabling the feature, users will be able to see a Games button on the omnibar. Clicking in the new button will open a panel on the right side of the browser window. The panel includes various categories of HTML5 games such as Arcade, Board & Card, Puzzle, Sports, Casual, and more. For those who do not know, HTML 5 games can be played right in the browser without downloading any app or file but these games do need an active internet connection.
Microsoft is also reportedly working to upgrade one of the useful features in the Edge browser. As reported by TechRadar, Reddit user Leo Varela has spotted a new functionality in the Web Capture tool that was introduced by the company last year. For those who are unaware, Web Capture makes it easier for users to capture quick screenshots from web pages. Users can save an entire webpage or a certain section. But previously, users were not able to take screenshots of a few types of content on the browser, especially PDF files. With the new functionality, the tool can reportedly capture all types of content visible on the browser in a screenshot.
