The new Microsoft Edge search is double the fun!

Microsoft keeps rolling out new features for us, one after another. This time, they're focusing on making online searches smarter and faster in the Edge browser. If you've been unsure about trying Edge, this could be the nudge you've been waiting for.

Here's the scoop: Edge has a neat new feature, shared by Mikhail Parakhin, the head of Advertising and Web Services at Microsoft. Picture this: You're hunting for something crucial for your business—maybe market research or the latest industry trends. You type in your search, and voilà! Instead of just one set of results, you get results from two search engines simultaneously.

How does it pull this off?

Let's break it down. If Bing is your usual search engine, when you hit search, you'll see Bing's results and a peek at what Google (or whichever search engine you prefer) has to offer. This two-in-one view makes sure you're not missing any vital info.

In business, information is key. Having access to comprehensive search results means you're more likely to find the most relevant and valuable info. No more jumping between browsers or tabs to compare search results—Edge does it all in one go.

Some folks worry this might clutter up the screen with too much info. It's a fair concern, and luckily, Microsoft is listening. Parakhin hinted that soon, you might be able to customize your 'backup' search engine to make things smoother. While the sidebar's width is set for now, there's talk of adding more ways to personalize it.

This Edge feature is a game-changer. It makes searching easier, speeding up research. You get the best of both worlds without the headache of managing multiple windows.

But it's not just a nice-to-have—it's a move towards smarter browsing, especially for us in the business world. It shows Microsoft's dedication to improving user experience and keeping up in the browser race.

For current Edge fans, this is thrilling news. For everyone else, it's a strong reason to think about making the switch.
