  1. ‘Send page to self’ feature comes to Edge Canary Microsoft has implemented Google Chrome’s ‘”Send to your device'” feature in the latest version of the Edge Canary browser. The feature is designed to easily send a page you are currently browsing to another device you own such as your smartphone or another PC. Till now, besides the native share dialogue, Microsoft only had the QRCode generator to share pages, which is of course not ideal for PC to PC sharing. The feature can be accessed via right-clicking on a page, right-click
  2. Edge Canary brings a new accent color option for themes, feature currently hidden The latest Edge Canary build is adding a new personalization feature that lets users apply custom accent colors to the browser theme. This feature is currently hidden under an experimental flag (spotted by HotCakeX in the Edge Insider forums) and must be enabled in order to show up in the settings. Heading to edge://flags and enabling the ‘edge-color-theme-picker’ flag adds an ‘Accent color’ option in the Appearance section in Settings. The option lets users select from 15 avai
  3. Microsoft is testing a 'Web Capture' feature in Edge Canary One of legacy Edge’s standout features was the ability to quickly annotate on a webpage’s screenshot right frrm the browser. However, with the move to Chromium-based Edge, that feature was lost. While the company is working to bring the ability to annotate on PDFs using a digital stylus, it looks like it is also testing a Web Capture feature for users running Edge Canary. The feature is currently being tested as part of an A/B test effort, with the ‘Web Capture’ option sitting in the elli
  4. Edge Canary adds ability to sort Collections alphabetically or by date A recent Microsoft Edge Canary update has added the ability for users to sort Collections by date or in alphabetical order by name (spotted first by Reddit user u/Leopeva64-2). The option is a minor one that makes using Collections easier by allowing users to sort links to keep track of when the items were added, for improved discoverability. Collections lets users collate links and notes in lists to set them aside for later. The links can also be exported to various other apps
  5. Edge Canary enables secure DNS by default, adds flag for smooth scrolling on PDFs Microsoft is making DNS over HTTPS (DoH) the default DNS setting on the latest Edge Canary builds. The firm added the feature this week within settings which also provides users with four custom DNS service providers to choose from if they do not want to use their default offering. Google introduced secure DNS in Chrome in May as part of a revamp of the security and privacy controls. The search giant implemented the feature with Chrome 84, but the Redmond company has
  6. Microsoft testing 'Meet now' button for Skype and recommended search in Edge Canary Microsoft appears to be experimenting with a couple of new features on the Canary builds of Edge. One of these features makes it easier for users to make a Skype call through a "Meet now" button in the browser's new tab page. The new capability seems to be available only to some users of Edge Canary, appearing just below its search bar. Clicking on the button brings users to a page where they can start a meeting via Skype, with a unique link that they can share with those who
  7. “Line Focus” feature now available on Edge Canary Microsoft’s initial motivation behind its Immersive Reader was to create a comfortable reading experience for users with dyslexia and dysgraphia. Appealing to a wider market than initially planned, the Redmond company has since broadened its capabilities. Recently, Microsoft introduced an “open in immersive reader” option for highlighted text, thereby making the feature more easily accessible. In addition to this, Microsoft just reinstated the “Reading Preferences” option, which can
  8. Edge Canary users should get native translation by the end of this month Say goodbye to using third-party translation extensions as Microsoft is working on integrating native translation into Chromium-based Edge. The feature is already available in Google Chrome so it only makes sense that Microsoft adds it to its browser. According to the discussions on Microsoft community, the company will soon add native translation to Edge. The news was confirmed by a
  9. Edge's Dev and Canary versions now let you add multiple tabs to new collection Microsoft Edge's Canary and Dev versions already allow you to add several tabs to a collection, but this capability didn't have a quick method in the previous iterations of the browser, especially if you are dealing with multiple tabs. Microsoft today rolled out a new update that makes that feature a breeze. Candice Poon, a product manager at Microsoft, posted a screenshot on Twitter that illustrates how to add multiple tabs in Edge Dev and Canary to a new collection with
  10. Microsoft Edge Canary gets extension syncing When Microsoft announced the release date for its new Chromium-based Edge browser in November, there were a few things that it said would be missing. One was ARM64 support, something that arrived in the stable channel last week. And then there was extension and history syncing, things that still aren't available. The good news is that extension syncing is here, at least in the Canary channel, as noted on Microsoft TechCommunity. Edge Canary is updated daily, and it's currently on version 82.0.424.0. Pre
  11. Microsoft Edge Canary and Dev versions now let users send Collections to OneNote Back during this year’s Build conference in May, Microsoft announced a bunch of features that will be making it to the Edge browser. The features included the addition of a sidebar search to the browser to allow for quick context searches and enhancements to the Collections feature in the form of Pinterest integration. For those not in the know, Collections let users copy images, text, and links from the web and store then in groups. Another feature planned for Collect
  12. Microsoft Edge Canary gets new PWA features with May 2020 Update Microsoft has been working hard on improving the PWA experience on Windows 10 and it recently announced new updates to PWAs at Build 2020. While PWA experience is not as good as Native apps, the new Edge updates should improve it for Windows 10 users. First spotted by Techdows, the new Microsoft Edge Canary update has a flag to enable the new PWA experience that was showed off at Build 2020. If you’re using Edge Canary then you can visit “edge://flags/#edge-web app-identity-proxy” (without quo
  13. Virtue is its own reward There's at least one browser out there unwilling to accept Microsoft's attempts to fiddle with search settings, and it's made by... Microsoft. The Canary build of Microsoft's Chromium-based Edge browser has taken great exception to the Microsoft Rewards extension. The latter is a nifty little thing that earns the user Microsoft points through an occasional quiz or searches using Bing. Those points can then be redeemed for goodies in return for, well, surrendering quite a bit. A glance at what the
  14. Microsoft Edge Canary now allow users to run PWAs at Windows startup Microsoft has been working on improving the PWA experience for Edge users. Recently the company added a flag to allow pinned PWAs to show shortcuts. Now, Microsoft has added another feature to improve the experience for Chromium Edge users. The new feature allows Microsoft Edge Canary users to launch PWAs at Windows startup (via Techdows). Google recently added this feature to Chrome Canary and now Microsoft has updated the Edge Canary branch to add the feature as well. If you are
  15. Microsoft details the new Web Capture feature in Edge, now live in Canary and Dev builds Earlier this month, a limited number of users began seeing a new ‘Web Capture’ feature in Edge Canary. As the name suggests, the feature lets users capture a screenshot of a web page on the browser and copy the image to a clipboard or save it. It partially mimics the capability that was present in legacy Edge that let users capture and annotate on the web. Today, Microsoft has officially detailed the feature as it makes its way to the Canary and Dev channel builds. The t
  16. Microsoft Edge's upcoming feature will suspend inactive tabs to save resources Since the release of Chromium-based Edge, Microsoft has been working along with Google to improve the Chromium framework for all the Chromium web browsers. After helping Google reduce the battery drain, Microsoft is now working on another feature that will reduce the resource usage on Microsoft Edge. Called 'Sleeping Tabs', the new feature will suspend inactive tabs to free up resources. The feature was added to Microsoft Edge Canary recently (via Techdows) and is curre
  17. Edge Canary now lets users enable image previews of tabs through a hidden flag A recent update to Microsoft’s Edge Canary has brought an experimental flag that lets users enable tab previews along with image snapshots (via Aggiornamenti Lumia on Twitter). It lets you hover over a tab to view the title and page URL, along with a small image of the content of the page. The feature is by no means new, since it was present in Opera many years ago, and was also a feature of legacy Edge. Tab previews are also not new to Chromium-based browsers since ref
  18. Microsoft hides www and https in Edge Canary address bar, then restores it Google launched a controversial change in Chromium and the company's Chrome Canary web browser recently that hides trivial subdomains such as www and the protocol, e.g. http, in the browser's address bar. Users of the browser may reveal the full address with a double-click, or by right-clicking on the address to check the "always show full URLs" option to restore the display of the full address permanently. Microsoft's new Edge browser is based on Chromium and changes made to C
  19. Microsoft's Edge Canary gains family safety section in its settings Microsoft's Edge Canary has added a family safety section within its settings to allow parents to keep control of their kids' activities online when using that browser. With the latest change, you can access your Microsoft family dashboard in order to gain access to someone’s settings or add a new family member (via Techdows). The family safety settings let you limit certain types of content, restrict screen times for kids, and monitor your family members' spending via the Store. You can also manage t
  20. The Edge Canary update from a few days ago improved its UI to make inPrivate Windows more clear. Today’s update -continuing with the privacy-related theme- will implement a universal “reveal password” button. The feature is one of many included in the “controlled feature roll-outs”. Implement the reveal button for <input type=password> This change implements the reveal button for <input type=password>. The button is added using same pattern as the clear/cancel button for <input type=search> except that instead of using -webkit-appearance
