Is your website ready for the 'Edge'?


It’s not likely that the guitarist from U2 will be browsing your site any time soon but after the 29th July a lot of people will be viewing your website using the new browser from Microsoft called “Microsoft Edge”.

Why? Microsoft are offering a free upgrade to users with compatible computers/operating systems. Globally, this could be as many as 400 million users with Microsoft Edge making Internet Explorer 8, 9, 10 and 11 obsolete.

Microsoft say it is “built to give you a better web experience – one that’s made for easy sharing, reading and researching” which includes personalising it to suit your own interests and preferences. This may be a radical change – and it could adversely effect the way that your website performs when viewed on the new browser.

As with all new technologies there are bound to be bugs and issues but we are here to adapt your website to be compatible with Microsoft Edge.


29th July 2015

Make note of this date to ensure that you check how your website is functioning – it may need tweaking.

We will also be making note to include Edge in our testing of any new web design in the future.

If you find your site requires assistance after this date then give us a call on 01884 255999 and we will be able to help.
