These days scanning QR code / recognising QR code in a picture in lieu of typing URL are getting more and more common. Instead of using a QR code scanning app that most likely will end up opening a browser to get to an URL, why not just adding a QR code scanning feature into EDGE? If the QR gives an URL, then user can go to such URL directly in EDGE.

 

Of course to ensure security, a MSGBOX should be pop up showing domain in black and allowing expanding the message in MSGBOX to review the entire URL in a details tap for user to confirm proceeding to the URL or not after scanning

@sscywong That's a great idea about QR code scanning.  I will bring this up to the developer team.
