Microsoft Edge beta for iOS lets you set it as the default browser on iOS 14
#1
Information 
Quote:Last week, we reported that [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register], but the feature was exclusive to Google Chrome. As it turns out, it's starting to roll out more broadly, with Microsoft updating its Edge browser to support being set as the default. Right now, it's only for those on the TestFlight beta.
 
The update rolled out over the weekend, and if you've updated, you've probably already seen it. That's because unlike with Google Chrome, Edge will - in true Microsoft fashion - interrupt what you're doing when launching the app to show you a full-screen pop-up, telling you that you should set it as your default browser.
 
Once you do change your default browser, that's where all links should open up, whether they come from your default email app, which can also be changed in iOS 14, or a note-taking app. It's unclear if Google apps will continue to try and force Chrome to open, as they do currently.
 
Right now, it's just Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge supporting this new feature in iOS 14. Browsers like Firefox, Opera, and Brave haven't been updated to support it, nor have email apps like Outlook and Gmail. It's also likely that when iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are released to the general public, in a matter of weeks, there will be many app updates to support all of their new features.
