Microsoft Edge is a new and lightweight internet browser developed by Microsoft Corporation as a replacement for Internet Explorer – the venerable browser that was a part of Windows operating systems since 1995.
Powered by Google’s Chromium engine, Microsoft Edge combines an easy-to-use interface with modern web tech to provide users with speedy browsing experiences across a wide variety of platforms.
Security and privacy are top priorities for Microsoft Edge as the browser comes with a bevy of powerful features such as tracking protection, phishing protection and some helpful extras. As with most modern browsers, Edge supports JavaScript, which is enabled by default to allow users to view dynamic features such as display ads and animations on web pages.
In this guide, we will provide you with the basics on JavaScript in Edge as well as how you can activate or disable it in no time. This guide will not be useful for users running the previous version (legacy) of Microsoft Edge browser.
If you don’t have the latest Microsoft Edge version installed on your device, then you can simply update it from the Microsoft website. It is available for Windows, Mac, Android and iOS, among others.

What is JavaScript and Why do I Need it?

JavaScript is a browser-based scripting language that is used to add dynamic interactions and functionalities to web pages. Today, modern web browsers like Microsoft Edge have JavaScript enabled by default, allowing users to enjoy consistent interactive experiences on web pages.
With JavaScript turned off, Edge users will be unable to view or experience dynamic features on the internet. For example, if you turn off JavaScript in your Edge browser, you can say goodbye to automated updates on your Facebook and Twitter timeline. Similarly, websites like Amazon and YouTube become almost impossible to use when you turn off JavaScript because it contributes in large part to their interactive capabilities.

How to Check if JavaScript is Enabled in Microsoft Edge

Follow the procedure below to tell if JavaScript is enabled in your Microsoft Edge browser;
All you have to do is make use of the <noscript> element. The <noscript> tag is used to control or run websites that neither support scripting nor recognize the <script> tag. If JavaScript is disabled on your Microsoft Edge browser, the <noscript> element will be displayed as an alternative text message.
