The "Snap" feature allows you to view two web pages side by side, filling up the entire screen.
8. Better crash recovery :
This is another feature found in Chrome. Explorer isolates each open tab individually, so if one crashes, the others won't be affected.
9. Domain highlighting helps you avoid link baiting :
Explorer now has domain highlighting, which tells you the site the link belongs to before you click.
10. Manage add-ons for faster browsing :
Add-ons are great tools for your web browser, but too many can slow everything down. Explorer has an add-on performance advisor that will suggest which add-ons to switch off or delete in order to maximize your performance.
