    Microsoft Edge Importing from old Browsers


    Is there a way to tell the new Microsoft Edge to stop importing stuff from the old (IE?) information stored on the Microsoft servers? EVERY time I install Edge on a new system I get all the old favorites and bookmarks from years ago on all the systems use Edge with Sync turned on. It does this before I can remove IE from the installed apps on the new system. Once IE is uninstalled from all the systems tied to my Microsoft Account things settle down - that is after I manually delete all the stuff from several year ago! Looks like Microsoft has set up Edge to only go one way IMPORT when in doubt! Am I missing something?

    :)

    Microsoft is developing a built-in ad blocker for its Edge browser

    "One of the first browser add-ons many people install to improve their online experience is Adblock Plus or something similar. Until recently, Microsoft Edge's lack of support for add-ons put off a lot of would-be users, but reports from Build 2016 suggest that native ad blocking is on its way to the Internet Explorer successor.

    Adblock Plus is coming to Edge, but built-in ad blocking would negate the need for such an add-on. A slide shown off and snapped at a Build presentation shows that the next version of Edge, in response to user feedback, will feature ad blocking capabilities. There's no word on delivery timescale, but the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update would seem a likely candidate.

    ZDNet's Ed Bott photographed the slide which shows Microsoft's development roadmap built around feedback from testers. Right at the top of the list is reference to plans to create a plugin and extension store for Edge, but it's entry number four that's more intriguing.

    "Build ad blocking features into the browser" is listed as a Feature Request from users. But the good news is that it is not only listed as being "Deliverable 4682811", but as "Targeted for the next version".

    This will no doubt come as good news for those who have fallen in love with Edge, but it's not something that will be welcomed by the likes of Adblock Plus. It does seem that, particularly in the mobile arena, there is a move to baking ad blocking into the browser so it makes sense that Microsoft is following the trend. But it is the fact that Edge straddles Windows 10 on the desktop and Windows 10 Mobile that makes this a particularly interesting move.

    Keep an eye out for Insider builds in the coming weeks as the feature may be just around the corner.
    "

    Forget extensions, built-in ad blocking is coming to Microsoft Edge - [UPDATE... no it's not!]

    Importing firefox data in to microsoft edge

    Hello,

    I hope I can help you today

    Import from a browser

    To import favorites from Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox into Microsoft Edge, follow these steps.

    In Microsoft Edge, select Settings and more> Settings> Import from another browser.

    Choose the browser from which you want to import (only the browsers installed on this computer will be shown in the list) and then select Import.

    Recommendation: To show favorites in the bookmarks bar, select Settings and more> Settings and activate show favorites bar. Then select Hub> Favorites and drag the ones you want into the Favorites Bar folder.

    I hope this can help

    regards
