Microsoft will remove child mode and a number of other features from the Edge browser

Microsoft’s proprietary web browser will soon lose several features. Edge 117, which is currently in beta and will be available to the public on September 14th, has removed the math solver, picture dictionary, quotes, grammar tools, and kids mode.

The company believed that removing features would make interacting with the browser more comfortable and streamline the Other Tools menu section. Microsoft has already mentioned forthcoming changes in the description of the beta version of the browser, which was made available to Insiders on August 25, so the disappearance of the mentioned functions will not be unexpected.

As Microsoft tries to expand its browser’s user base to compete with Google Chrome, developers must find ways to make their product more attractive to potential users. In some cases, the presence of a large number of additional options can be perceived by users as an attempt by developers to bloat the application and make its functionality redundant. Since the mentioned features are obviously popular with a small part of browser users, it was decided to remove them.
