    I would assume that their intent is that it would encourage more people to use Edge as their main browser on the (Windows 10) PC. Plus they've finally given up on their own phone platform, so they need to keep themselves relevant on mobile as much as possible.

    Oh, I see where they're going with this. Soon, we'd have Windows 10 RT Edge OS.

    I can see the advantage syncing passwords. I sync passwords between Safari on my PCs and my IOS devices using keychain, so if users can sync between their Windows based PCs and IOS/android devices it would remove the need for a separate password manager.

    Amazing to see all the MS apps on Android now, they really have given up on going it alone.

    They even have a MS downloader app with everything listed, including their launcher which is quite nice and lets you move seamlessly between Android and Windows.
