To help tab-hoarders manage their cluttered workspace, Microsoft Edge browser now features an always-accessible vertical tab window. It’s the only major browser to implement a native vertical tab feature. The latest version of Edge also improves the browser’s privacy tools with clearer explanations for its “basic,” “balanced,” and “strict” anti-tracking protocols.

Of course, vertical tabs can take up a lot of your screen, which is why Microsoft included a handy “collapse” button in the vertical tab bar. Collapsing vertical tabs leaves you with a small vertical strip of favicons, which you can still click without expanding the tab window.

The “basic,” “balanced,” and “strict” anti-privacy options now feature detailed descriptions for how each protocol works, including explanations for why strict anti-tracking may break some websites. You can find Edge’s anti-tracking tools in the “Privacy and Services” tab under Edge Settings.
