window.external.AddFavorite method not working in Microsoft Edge RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using  window.external.AddFavorite(url,title) to add the favourite link in my website. While testing with Microsoft Edge Preview I found that it is not working while all fine with IE 11.

    Could you please provide difference between both the browsers for this function?

  • Hi,

    you feature test with
    if(typeof window.external.AddFavorite=='unknown'){window.external.AddFavorite(url,title);}

    nor does metro IE 11, firefox or webkit browsers support the window.external.AddFavorite method.

    users can manually add sites to their favorites or pinned sites with the tools that the user agent UI provides.
