Microsoft today announced a new Cortana experience on Edge web browser that will help you save money and time during online shopping. This new Cortana feature will help users find the best pricing for the product they are viewing on Edge. Currently this feature supports 14 retailers including Amazon, Walmart, and eBay, within the US. Microsoft is planning to increase the availability and the number of retailers they support in the coming months.
