The Microsoft Edge browser is now available in beta for the iPad, reports The Verge.

The software maker is now updating its Edge iOS preview app to include iPad support today. I’ve had a chance to briefly test Edge on iPad, and it’s largely what you’d expect. Microsoft has scaled up the interface for the larger screen on the iPad, and features like “continue on PC” remain, alongside options to change from a light to a dark theme.

Features of Microsoft Edge for iOS include:

● Continue on PC: Go anywhere and pick up where you left off by seamlessly moving content between your mobile device and PC (requires Windows 10 Fall Creator’s Update).

● Data Sync: Your favorites, passwords, and reading list are synced across your devices, so no matter the device, your browser is always personalized to you.

● Hub View: With your favorites, reading list, history and books all in one place, finding and managing your content is made simple.

● QR Code Reader: Easily read QR codes at the touch of a button. Microsoft Edge will pull up the reading and information right onto your screen.

● Voice Search: You can now use your voice to search the web. Ask a question or speak a prompt to use the web in more natural, familiar ways.

● InPrivate: When you browse with InPrivate mode, your browsing data (like your history, temporary internet files, and cookies) isn't saved on your PC once you're done.

You can download Microsoft Edge from the App Store for free. To get the beta for iPad you will need to have signed up to test the preview app. If you did, you can download the update from TestFlight.

Hahahaha feeling for you, iPad fans. Seriously... this is bad karma, not on the ordinary side. Gotta admit Microsoft has balls.
