To make people switch to Microsoft Edge, the Redmond-based tech biggie will now pay the masses to use the browser. Edge can deliver 36-53 percent more battery life while doing daily tasks, claims the company.
Microsoft Rewards (a rebranding of Bing Rewards) is currently only available in US. It offers points for using Edge, Bing, and shopping at the Microsoft store. Microsoft pointed out that users will have to make Edge their default search engine to earn points in its revamped rewards program. The points can be traded in for vouchers or credits to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Skype and the ad-free version of Outlook.com.
