An overview of all internal Microsoft Edge URLs

Internet, Microsoft Edge

All web browsers come with a set of internal URLs or addresses that users may open; these internal pages provide additional information, may be used to configure certain browser settings, for management purposes, or for other things.

The new Microsoft Edge comes with its own set of internal URLs; since it is based on Chromium, it should not come as a surprise that the majority resembles those of the Chromium core and other Chromium-based browsers such as Google Chrome, Vivaldi, or Opera.

Most browser makers change the protocol of internal pages and Edge is not different from those. You access internal pages with edge:// followed by a resource. One of the most convenient is edge://edge-urls/ as it displays a list of all resources that are available currently in the browser. While that is handy, the page lists links only and it is sometimes difficult to find out more about a page just by looking at the address.

Internal Microsoft Edge URLs

    Doesn’t Windows 8 know that www. or http:// are passe ?

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between domains and files for instance.

      I know a service made by google that is similar to Google bookmarks.

    @Ashwin–Thankful you delighted my comment; who knows how many “gamers” would have disagreed!

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    Omg a badge!!!
    Some tangible reward lmao.

    It sucks that redditors are going to love the fuck out of it too.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    Almost al unlmited services have a real limit.

    And this comment is written on the dropbox article from August 25, 2023.

    Yes. Please. Fix the comments.

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.

    Article Title: Reddit enforces user activity tracking on site to push advertising revenue
    Article URL:

    No surprises here. This is just the beginning really. I cannot see a valid reason as to why anyone would continue to use the platform anymore when there are enough alternatives fill that void.

    I’m not sure if there is a point in commenting given that comments seem to appear under random posts now, but I’ll try… this comment is for

    My temporary “solution”, if you can call it that, is to use a VPN (Mullvad in my case) to sign up for and access Reddit via a European connection. I’m doing that with pretty much everything now, at least until the rest of the world catches up with GDPR. I don’t think GDPR is a magical privacy solution but it’s at least a first step.
