Collections in Edge

Microsoft Edge (Canary) is getting the highly-anticipated ‘Collections’ feature, which is a new way to organize and share the information such as shopping wishlist that we come across every day while browsing the internet.

Collections can be opened by clicking an icon in the extensions tray and the pane includes the “Add Current Page” option. As the name suggests, this option will add the current webpage to the Collections list and you can also give a name to the Collections.

You can use Collections to collect and gather anything that you come across while browsing the web. For example, you can browse and add products pages from Amazon and Microsoft Store to the Collections, and compare items. If you are a researcher or you are working on a project, Collections will help you organize research information from platforms like Wikipedia, Encyclopedia and others.
