Microsoft Edge may not be as popular as Google Chrome, but it now offers more features. The latest version of Microsoft Edge also has AI features and an integration of the Bing Chat technology directly into the browser’s interface.

The Copilot button in the Microsoft Edge browser appears on the top right corner of the screen, and clicking on it opens a flyout that allows you to interact with the chatbot without switching to a new tab.

The Copilot on Microsoft Edge includes three different tabs: Chat, Compose, and Insights. The ‘Chat’ provides you direct access to the Bing AI Chat, and the ‘Compose’ tab allows you to create different content formats.

The remaining option is ‘Insights’, which shows you more information about the topic you’re viewing. While Copilot on Microsoft Edge is a useful addition, if you are not a fan of this feature, you may find the new button irritating.
