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.
The following resources are available in Microsoft Stable. Development versions of the browser may include additional resources.
The following pages are for debugging purposes only. Because they crash or hang the renderer, they're not linked directly; you can type them into the address bar if you need them.
Now You: do you use any of these internal URLs?Advertisement
