The new Microsoft Edge Browser

I recently got an email from Microsoft to update Edge to a rebuild version of the Edge browser. First observation was that the new build is a way lot quicker to load websites than before. But a great advantage with the new build for users of this forum is that when a post/comment is in a language other than your home language, Edge raises a pop up that offers to translate that language into your home language. For example, in a couple of recent comments on Vegas Pro's forum which were posted in German, clicking yes to translate instantly converted German into English - on the Edge page. No more having to copy/paste into a 'translate' webpage. It's really good.

With Firefox you can help yourself with the add-on "ImTranslator", the whole website can be translated with just one click - also without copy and paste.

Google Chrome seems to have this built in as well. Just right click and select translate.

If you have Google Translate extension, that can help translate without the need to go to separate tab, translate to the browser's preferred language setting if I correct.

It looks as though MS Edge was last of of the blocks on auto-translating. BTW, Edge's translate function does allow the translation to occur automatically with needing to click the tab if so desired.
