Microsoft today announced that its Microsoft Edge browser is available for download on the iPad and Android tablets, four months after it was first released for the iPhone and Android smartphones.

Designed to create a seamless browsing experience for Windows 10 users who also have Apple or Android devices, the Microsoft Edge browser features content and data syncing between the iOS version of the app and the PC version.

A "Continue on PC" feature lets users push websites from a PC to a mobile device and vice versa (Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update required) and the "Hub View" features easy access to favorites, reading list, history, and books.

Passwords, favorites, and reading lists are all synced across devices where a user is signed in to create a personalized browsing experience no matter which device a PC user is browsing on.

Microsoft Edge also features a built-in QR code reader, voice-based search, and an InPrivate browsing mode.

Microsoft Edge for iPad and iPhone can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link] There's also a new version of the browser for Android tablets, available from Google Play.

Microsoft? Who are they, a startup? ;)
They’re that little company whose operating system runs over 95% of all laptops. Not sure if Apple have ever cornered a majority in any market let alone 95%.

Why? Its awful on a PC, there's zero reasons why I'd want to use it on an iPad.

I see no point in this. First of all it's not even really Edge since it uses the built in webkit engine in iOS.

Never use it as it’s a shambles on Windows, so can’t see it being any better on ipad.
