In December, Microsoft announced their intention to adopt the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop.

The project has been in public beta tested for a month now and today at Build Microsoft announced a host of new features for the next version of Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 that address some of the fundamental frustrations with browsers today, including Collections.

Collections is a way of addressing the information overload customers feel with the web today, Collections allows you to collect, organize, share and export content more efficiently and with Office integration.

It also captures sources and creates citations for you automatically so it’s also great for students and researchers.

Intelligent export to apps like Word and Excel preserves the logical structure of your content, so you can turn a loose collection of paragraphs into a handout with citations, or turn a shopping list into a spreadsheet sortable by price.

See a brief video showing the feature off below:

These feature and more will begin to roll out near the broader launch of the next version of Microsoft Edge.
