Microsoft’s Edge browser has a bit of a chicken and egg conundrum going for it as it’s relatively new presence on a relatively new OS hinders it from being a trusted name among internet browsers. Coupled with the fact that it’s predecessor in Internet Explorer has become the butt of many internet meme jokes (for mostly justified reasons) and its largest competitor continues to build enticing lock-in features, Edge has its work cut out for itself.

Fortunately, the developers of Nimble appear to be forward thinking developers who are placing some large bets on the future of Edge and how businesses will want to use internet browsers.

Nimble is the first Social Sales and Marketing CRM that works for you by building your CRM from your existing Office 365 data and then works with you, everywhere you engage. We’ve optimized Nimble to work seamlessly inside Office 365, Outlook, Skype and even Dynamics CRM. We help you easily deploy your CRM by syncing your team’s Office 365 contacts, emails, and calendars into a unified relationship manager enriched with the business insights you need to engage.

Nimble is a fairly comprehensive addition to Edge that pulls and displays a complete communication trail which includes shared emails, notes, and social media messages right from within the -browser. Gone are the days of whack-a-mole-like professional communication tracking, thanks to Nimble’s ability to aggregate company CRM listings.

Furthermore, Nimble works outside of the confines of Outlook, Skype or Dynamics as it provides contact insights when surfing social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, AngelList, Twitter, CrunchBase and of course LinkedIn, to name a few. With Nimble, users can pull up relevant contact info while engaging with people on their favorite sites.

Nimble also works for people on the go as it integrates with Outlook mobile to provide a similar communications flow as its desktop counterpart.

To try out Nimble and all of its version 4.0 features, Edge users can head over to for a 14-day free trial, after which, the price becomes $25 per license, per month. Understandably, it’s the business CRM listings that help make Nimble the successful communications tool it is now, but hopefully, developers will see the benefits in a more consumer oriented version of the service in the future.
