Finally, you may have a good reason to use the web browser on your console for more than just the necessities. The edge reports that Microsoft has started testing a version of its Chrome-based Edge browser on Xbox One and Series X / S. Join the Alpha Skip-Ahead test ring and you’ve got a web experience that’s more in line with the modern era, including better compatibility and synchronization with Edge across multiple platforms.
This version is surprisingly buggy and does not include mouse or keyboard support. And while this theoretically provides access to Google Stadium, we would not rely on reliable access to some intensive web ps yet.
It may take a while before there is a more polished version of the new Edge for Xbox. When ready, however, the new browser may make it better to buy an Xbox if web browsing means something to you. Right now, it PlayStation 5 does not even have an easily accessible web browser (you have to rely on tricks to use it at all). While that could change, a Chromium-based Xbox browser could give Microsoft a comfortable edge.
