Everyone is talking about Microsoft's ex-Project Spartan that's meant to replace the old Internet Explorer. The new browser is now called Edge and while not everyone likes the name, the majority of Windows Phone fans agree that Microsoft should focus on bringing the best browsing experience on Windows 10.
But what about other platforms? Since Microsoft has started to bring some of its applications and services to Android and iOS platforms, wouldn't it be possible to make the Edge internet browser available to other mobile operating systems?
Well, while this might be a possibility, Microsoft has no plans to bring Edge to other mobile platforms like Android and iOS.
According to Microsoft's Charles Morris his company has no intentions of bringing Edge to other platforms, so cross-platform is out of the question for the moment.
However, he went on and said that Microsoft would continue to listen to users’ feedback and that, if there were a demand for Edge on Android and/or iOS, then they would start looking into it (watch it from 7:20).
Microsoft is currently focused on making the best browser for Windows 10, so once the new operating system for mobiles gets released, people will start to offer their feedback, so there might come a time when Edge will be made available cross-platform.
Still, we were confirmed by Microsoft that time is not now and that's quite understandable since Edge for Windows 10 Mobile is not even finished.

In the same piece of news, Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile is now expected to arrive this fall, or at least after the release of Windows 10 for PC.
The Redmond-based company is also rumored to launch at least two high-end smartphones later this year, which are codenamed Cityman and Talkman.
