MICROSOFT has launched a new rewards system that pays customers to use its minimalist new web browser, Edge, which rolled out alongside Windows 10.
You can also use voice assistant Cortana to provide context and additional information around a topic or specific word by right-clicking within Edge.
But despite these improvements and stand-out features, Microsoft Edge has not proven particularly popular with customers.
Meanwhile the outdated and infamously infuriating Internet Explorer accounts for a meagre 5 per cent of traffic from Windows 10 users.
Microsoft has launched a new campaign via Microsoft Rewards – formerly known as Bing Rewards – to tempt users to its redesigned browser.
Points can be traded-in for vouchers or store credit in StarBucks, Skype, Amazon or advert-free Outlook.com.
The news comes as Microsoft launched a new Apple-bashing advertisement for its Surface Pro 4 hybrid.
In a similar vein to Apple’s Get A Mac television campaign – which featured the iconic “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” comparisons with David Mitchell and Robert Webb – the latest Surface advert places the iPad Pro next to the Surface Pro 4 and directly compares a number of features on each device.
