Microsoft's Edge browser is getting price comparisons and more

Today, Microsoft announced improvements coming to its Edge browser this holiday season, and there are quite a few, starting with price comparisons. Rolling out this month to U.S. users, it lets you check a price against other sites with one click.

All you have to do is add the product to a Collection, and there will be a button to compare it to other retailers. And speaking of Collections, Microsoft is announcing general availability of Collections + Pinterest, something that was announced back in the spring.

Microsoft is also set to help you save money with Bing Rebates. If you search for products on Bing, you don't have to look for cashback offers anymore. Bing Rebates will find them for you. You just have to make sure you're signed into a Microsoft Rewards account. This feature is live today.

Another feature that Microsoft highlighted is Give with Bing, something that was just recently expanded to more markets. Give with Bing takes your Microsoft Rewards and lets you donate them to a cause of your choice. Between now and December 31, Microsoft will even match your points.

Microsoft did highlight some other features, which are also all live, such as navigating PDFs with the table of contents, streaming movies with Teleparty, and the new web capture tool. The big new feature is price comparisons though, and that should be rolling out to Insiders soon.
