You may not know it, but nearly every modern web browser platform today has a built-in data entry tool that simplifies the user’s browser switching. Microsoft Edge is no exception.
Through this tool, you can get your history, favorites, passwords, open tabs, and more personal data from Chrome to Edge (or vice versa) with just a few clicks on launch. firstly. Microsoft is looking to take this feature to a “other level” and provide a “more convenient experience” for users by continuously syncing users’ Chrome data every time they launch Edge.
The feature itself isn’t new, but recent updates in Edge Canary have made it more flexible and customizable. Edge 104 Canary has received a new setting where users can choose what specific data Edge will collect at launch.
To enable the new data import feature, open your profile settings menu on Edge and click Import browser data > Import browser data on each launch > Turn on. You can then select your Chrome profile and items to import.
Edge Canary currently supports entering passwords at launch, autofill settings, payment information, browsing history, cookies, and open tabs. Only the item of open tabs will appear in the group “Tab imported”. It’s a pity that Edge doesn’t currently support syncing favorites and extensions, but Microsoft is committed to adding these in future updates.
