What is a EDGE file?

Edge file extension has Adobe Edge Project file type, developed by Adobe Systems, which is associated with the "web files" category.

Adobe Edge is an application for creating Web animations using JavaScript, CSS, and HTML/HTML5. .EDGE files are saved in the plain text format. They contain a timeline with multiple tracks for animating elements for web pages. For working with the animation, EDGE files rely on a JavaScript library known as jQuery. EDGE file animation serves as an alternative to Flash when it comes to creating web pages. Edge software is different from other Adobe applications because it does not utilize Adobe’s Flash technology for animating Web content. The .EDGE format was used by the older versions of Edge software. The newer version – Edge Animate – uses the .AN extension. However, Edge Animate is no longer actively developed.
