  2. Microsoft today released the new v96.0.1047.2 build for Edge Dev channel users. This new build comes with support for adding Citations to items in a Collection, support for Super Duper Secure Mode flag on Linux and more. Find the full change log of Edge Dev Channel build below. Added features and bug fixes: Added support for showing the Downloads menu and button in popup windows that don’t have a standard address bar/toolbar. Added support for adding Citations to items in a Collection. Added more support for resetting sync data for work and school accounts. Added support for the Super Duper Secure Mode flag on Linux. Added a management policy to control Internet Explorer Integration Complex Nav Data Types, which controls how form data and headers are sent in IE mode tabs. Note that updates to documentation or administrative templates may not have occurred yet. Added an API for WebVew2 apps to print to PDF (Issue 364). Edge Dev Improved Reliability: Fixed a crash when a webpage shows a popup alert. Fixed a crash when using the Web Widget. Fixed a crash when turning sync on or off. Fixed a crash when opening a popup like the … menu by clicking its button on the toolbar. Mobile: Fixed a crash after signing out of the browser. Fixed a crash when saving a password. Fixed a crash when a website requests a new permission. Changed Behavior: Fixed an issue where sync doesn’t work for work and school accounts. Fixed an issue where certain websites don’t work when Super Duper Secure Mode is enabled. Fixed an issue where the Collections pane sometimes can’t be closed. Fixed an issue where editing text in a Collection sometimes causes the pane to scroll unexpectedly. Fixed an issue where sidebar searches sometimes show content cut-off. Fixed an issue where the What’s New page doesn’t appear after updating the browser. Mobile: Improved ad blocking on certain websites. Fixed an issue where the browser sometimes can’t be signed into. Fixed an issue where a sync error dialog sometimes mistakenly appears, and when clicked on, it doesn’t navigate to sync settings. Fixed an issue where proxy settings are sometimes ignored. Fixed an issue where links that are clicked in InPrivate tabs sometimes are opened in non-InPrivate tabs. Fixed an issue where certain settings aren’t remembered after they’re turned on. Fixed an issue where the new tab page is rendered incorrectly. Fixed an issue where InPrivate sometimes isn’t disabled via management policy when it should be. Fixed an issue where Rewards prompts for a sign-in to a work or school account even though Rewards isn’t available for that type of account. Fixed an issue where certain internal websites sometimes don’t load properly for work and school users. Fixed an issue where websites sometimes have to be signed into twice in a row in order to actually be logged into the site. Fixed an issue where tabs sometimes close unexpectedly. Fixed an exception in WebView2 applications (Issue 1781). Known issues: Users of certain ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on YouTube. As a workaround, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to proceed. See this help article for more details. Some users are still running into an issue where all tabs and extensions immediately crash with a STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error. The most common cause of this error is outdated security or antivirus software from vendors like Symantec, and in those cases, updating that software will fix it. Users of the Kaspersky Internet Suite who have the associated extension installed may sometimes see webpages like Gmail fail to load. This failure is due to the main Kaspersky software being out of date, and is thus fixed by making sure the latest version is installed. Some users are seeing “wobbling” behavior when scrolling using trackpad gestures or touchscreens, where scrolling in one dimension also causes the page to subtly scroll back and forth in the other. Note that this only affects certain websites and seems to be worse on certain devices. This is most likely related to our ongoing work to bring scrolling back to parity with Edge Legacy’s behavior, so if this behavior is undesirable, you can temporarily turn it off by disabling the edge://flags/#edge-experimental-scrolling flag. This Edge Dev channel update should download and install directly but in case it doesn’t then you can head to the Edge settings and manually update the browser. Microsoft releases Edge Dev channel build 96.0.1047.2 with support for adding Citations and more

Microsoft releases Edge Dev channel build 96.0.1043.1 with Picture in Picture support on Windows
  4. Microsoft today announced improvements to how Microsoft Edge is listed in Windows Task Manager on Windows 11 PCs. Instead of a list of processes named Microsoft Edge, you can now see a detailed view of the Microsoft Edge processes as shown in the image above. The improvements include: For the browser process, GPU process and crashpad process, you will see the process type with a descriptive name and icon (such as “Browser,” “GPU Process,” or “Crashpad.) For the utility, plug-in, and extension processes, you will see the process type and the name of the service, plug-in, or extension. For renderer processes: For tabs you will see the word ‘tab’, and the site name and icon (Note: For InPrivate tabs, site name will be removed and icon will updated to a default tab icon) For subframes (typically used for ads), you will see the word ‘subframe’, followed by the subframe’s URL All dedicated workers and service workers will be listed When you end any of the browser process listed in the Task Manager, the behavior of Edge browser will vary depending on the process which was ended. Find the details below. Browser process: All processes related to that instance of Microsoft Edge will close. GPU process, utility processes: Processes will close and restart. When the processes close, you may see a brief change in your Microsoft Edge window. For example, when the GPU process is closed, your Microsoft Edge window will briefly go black and will return to normal once the process is restarted and when the audio utility process is closed, if you are listening to music, your audio will briefly stop and will return to normal once the process is restarted. Renderer processes: Process will close. If the process contains tabs, all the tabs in the process will be replaced with an error page saying, “This page is having a problem.” If the process contains subframes, the visible subframes will be replaced with a crashed tab icon. For invisible subframes, you likely won’t see a difference, but the page may be affected in some way. Extension and plug-in processes: A balloon will appear in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen saying the extension or plug-in has crashed and will ask you if you would like to reload the extension or plug-in. Crashpad processes: Process will close. Crashes in Microsoft Edge may be reported by other means. Dedicated workers/service workers: Functionality of a tab may break. The new improvements are now available to Windows 11 PCs with the Edge 94 Stable release. Source: Microsoft Microsoft announces improvements for Microsoft Edge in Windows 11 Task Manager
  5. Microsoft has announced a new design feature for Edge 96, currently only in the Canary channel for the Edge browser. For a subset of users, Microsoft is testing a new design to better manage your installed web apps. When you go to edge://apps in your browser, it now displays a redesigned hub that lists installed PWAs and websites as apps. You can now sort your apps by any of the following: Recently used. Alphabetically, based on the title. Date of installation. You can also arrange apps in a list or grid view. Additionally, you can easily pin apps to the taskbar or Start menu. You can create a shortcut, and enable apps to run on user login. Also, there’s now a way to easily access the following: Permissions and privacy details for the associated origin. More details about the application. If no major issue arises, the updated design should roll out to the dev channel in 2-3 weeks. Source: Microsoft Microsoft announce new PWA Hub design for Edge 96
  6. Microsoft Editor extension for Edge browser provides grammar, spelling, and style suggestions across multiple sites, so you can confidently write clear, concise posts and emails. Microsoft today revealed that it will implement spellcheck and grammar suggestions from Editor directly in the Edge browser. This will allow users to enjoy spellcheck and grammar suggestions without the need for installing the Editor extension. For now, only Insiders using Windows in the US with English as their language will see this feature update in Edge Canary and Dev channels. The next time you go type into a text box you will see not only a red squiggly line for misspellings but a blue squiggly line for grammar suggestions. Click on the item to see what Microsoft Editor suggests, and you can choose to change it or Ignore the suggestion. Source: Microsoft Microsoft Edge to have built-in spellcheck and grammar suggestions
  7. Like clockwork, Microsoft is today releasing Edge Dev build 96.0.1032.0 with a few new features. The most noteworthy is the addition of voice typing in the Windows 11 version. With Windows 11 now rolling out to more users, the new feature is accessible to more users for the company to gather feedback on. Additionally, there are a couple of other new features, including for iPads. Another nifty addition made in this build is the ability to move a tab to a different profile, even if there are no tabs from the other profile open. This might come in handy when moving tabs between personal and work profiles and the like. The browser is also adding the option to close toast notifications that are served when using collections. As usual, the features are also accompanied by a bunch of bug fixes and overall improvements. Additionally, there might be a few more Edge Dev builds before major version 96 is promoted to the Beta channel, thanks to the new release cadence. Here are all the new features added to this build: Added an item to the menu when right-clicking tabs that moves the tab to a different profile, even if no windows for that profile are currently open. Enabled voice typing in web pages on Windows 11. Added a button to the main feedback dialog to easily get to the “Recreate my problem” sub-dialog. Added an X to close certain toast notifications that appear when managing Collections. Added a button to exit Immersive Reader on iPad. Added improved messaging when the Web Widget fails to open because an extension disabled it. And here are all the improvements made to enhance the reliability of the browser: Fixed a crash when opening a window to a profile when a window for another profile is open. Fixed a crash when viewing Settings in a Guest window. Fixed a crash when using Internet Explorer mode. Mobile: Fixed a crash on Android when using third-party autofill providers. Fixed a crash on Android when downloading something. Fixed a crash on iPad. Fixed some crashes on Android 12. Fixed a crash in WebView2 apps when opening a context menu (Issue 1744). These are followed by the fixes that are aimed at addressing changed behavior. This includes a fix for addressing issues with importing data from other browsers, input issues, and a bunch of issues plaguing the mobile versions. Here is the complete list: Fixed an issue where enabling spellchecking for multiple languages resulted in only one language getting spellcheck results. Fixed an issue where opening a new window from the Favorites or History management pages fails. Fixed an issue where importing data from other browsers sometimes fails in certain languages. Fixed an issue where certain kinds of browser history are able to be deleted even when deleting history is disabled by management policy. Fixed an issue where editing a text note in a Collection sometimes isn’t possible because the pane automatically scrolls to where the note isn’t visible. Fixed an issue where entering Kids mode unnecessarily adds badging to browser shortcuts. Fixed an issue where websites that ask for permission to use a 2-Factor Authentication device result in a blank permission dialog. Fixed an issue where setting a website installed as an app to run when the device starts up via the app’s post-install dialog isn’t reflected in the Apps management page. Fixed an issue where there is no indication that a download has started in websites installed as apps. Fixed an issue where clicking the button in Settings to restart the browser doesn’t actually restart it. Fixed an issue where input sometimes doesn’t work when mini menus are visible. Fixed an issue where the Web Widget doesn’t respond to touchscreen input. Fixed an issue on Xbox where the Setting to open a specific page on browser startup doesn’t work. Mobile: Fixed an issue where signing into the browser sometimes fails. Fixed an issue where signing into the browser sometimes fails after updating the app. Fixed an issue where company resources are sometimes blocked with a “You can’t get there from here” error even though the device and browser are signed into the company properly. Fixed an issue where setting the default search provider sometimes fails. Fixed an issue where certain websites can’t be logged into in InPrivate. Fixed an issue on Android 12 where autofill data save prompts sometimes don’t appear when they should. Fixed an issue where data is sometimes inadvertently imported from other browsers multiple times in a row, leading to duplicate data. As is always the case, the build is rolling out in a staggered fashion, meaning that it might be a while till it shows up for all users. When it does make it to users' devices, it will be automatically downloaded in the background. Users can also force-check for an update through the About Microsoft Edge setting. New Edge Dev build adds voice typing support on Windows 11 and more
  8. Microsoft has updated the PWA Apps page in Edge Canary in what Microsoft calls an “improved and refreshed experience.” The old page looked like this: The new page has many more options and filters. It includes both a list view (above) and grid view. The details page (absent from the current version) offers information such as Permissions, and offers a number of options, including Pinning to Start, Auto-Start on Login, clearing cookies and more. To Try out the new Apps page enable the Refreshed Edge://apps user experience flag in Edge Canary. Source: Leo Varela Microsoft has updated the Edge Apps page with “refreshed experience”
  9. Earlier this year, Microsoft revamped the Extensions menu in Edge by bringing a dedicated flyout in the toolbar, letting users move extensions’ icons from the toolbar in this flyout. The behavior was similar to the new History, Downloads, and Collections menus that also received a flyout UI. However, one of the drawbacks of the UI was that it brought an all-or-nothing paradigm. Removing the Extensions button placed all the extensions in the toolbar, crowding the toolbar, which was not an ideal solution. That now seems to be changing, as the latest Edge Canary update adds the ability to hide the Extensions toolbar and the extensions icons completely without spewing all the icons out of the menu right into the toolbar. The update, spotted by Reddit user and Edge-watcher Leopeva64-2, also brings a best of both worlds option where it allows users to display the Extensions button automatically when extensions are turned on, helping declutter the increasingly busy toolbar. As seen in the screenshots at the top, users can simply right-click on the Extensions button and select the “hide from toolbar” option without affecting the pinned icons or completely remove all icons. Currently, another option to hide the button sits within the ellipsis menu inside the flyout and it is not clear if that option is slated to be removed. Additional options for the button can be spotted in the Appearance settings, which contains the “Show Automatically” feature. Since this is a minor addition, it might quickly make it to the Dev and Beta channels, before finally being released to the stable channel. With Edge releases now following a condensed release timeline, the wait for newer features to propagate from Canary to other channels is shorter than ever before. The addition of this option is indeed a welcome one for those that have been asking for the ability to choose to hide the button completely, especially for those who have select extensions and do not need the button on their toolbars. You can now hide all extensions and the Extensions button from the toolbar in Edge Canary
  10. Microsoft today released the new v96.0.1028.0 build for Edge Dev channel users. This new build comes with the ability to view downloaded Office files directly in the browser, ability to edit payment info and several bug fixes. Find the full change log of Edge Dev Channel build below. Added features and bug fixes: Added a shortcut button in Settings to personalize the Web Widget. Added a Setting on iOS to restore tabs on startup. Added the ability to swipe to close tabs on iOS. Features enabled by default: The ability to view downloaded Office files directly in the browser. The ability to edit payment card information prior to uploading it to Microsoft Pay. Management policies from Chromium that we have enabled support for: Control if the Audio Process will have High Priority Enabled, which is a temporary measure to work around issues with audio capture when the audio process is running at normal priority. Set the Print Rasterize Pdf Dpi, which controls the resolution PDFs are printed at when printing them using rasterization. Control the Print PostScript Mode, which controls the speed and quality that certain fonts print at. Edge Dev Improved Reliability: Fixed a crash when certain popups open. Fixed a crash when opening a Shopping popup. Fixed a crash when highlighting text. Mobile: Fixed a crash when signing into the browser. Fixed a crash when using Family Safety. WebView2: Fixed a crash when closing WebView2 apps while download popups are open (Issue 1723). Fixed an issue on Windows 11 where updating the browser can sometimes cause files necessary for WebView2 apps to function to be deleted, resulting in crashes or errors when trying to launch the apps or the browser. Changed Behavior: Fixed an issue where text annotations on PDF documents sometimes don’t save all the typed text. Fixed an issue where items sometimes fail to be added to Collections. Fixed an issue where overscroll doesn’t work when scrolling with a trackpad or touchscreen. Fixed an issue where certain Shopping features are available in InPrivate when they shouldn’t be. Fixed an issue where the Define context menu option sometimes does nothing. Fixed an issue where ungrouping a tab group can sometimes cause the tabs to become invisible. Fixed an issue where websites and apps can’t be pinned to the Windows taskbar. Fixed an issue where opening a PWA or website installed as an app sometimes fails or just opens a regular browser tab. Fixed an issue in Kids mode where Minecraft login fails. Mobile: Fixed an issue where browser accounts are sometimes signed out after updating the app. Fixed an issue where closing the last tab doesn’t automatically open up the new tab page. Fixed an issue where the Top Sites tiles don’t appear when inputting text in the address bar. Fixed an issue where requesting the desktop version of a website sometimes doesn’t work. Fixed an issue where parts of the Tab Center UI are sometimes missing. Fixed an issue where Favorites can’t be renamed. Fixed an issue where page translation sometimes breaks interactivity with certain elements on the webpage. WebView2: Fixed an issue in WebView2 apps where closing a download popup in one app window actually closes the download popup in a different window, not the current one (Issue 1688). Fixed an issue in WebView2 apps where CreateWebResourceResponse fails (Issue 1706). Known issues: Users of certain ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on YouTube. As a workaround, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to proceed. See this help article for more details. Some users are still running into an issue where all tabs and extensions immediately crash with a STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error. The most common cause of this error is outdated security or antivirus software from vendors like Symantec, and in those cases, updating that software will fix it. Users of the Kaspersky Internet Suite who have the associated extension installed may sometimes see webpages like Gmail fail to load. This failure is due to the main Kaspersky software being out of date, and is thus fixed by making sure the latest version is installed. Some users are seeing “wobbling” behavior when scrolling using trackpad gestures or touchscreens, where scrolling in one dimension also causes the page to subtly scroll back and forth in the other. Note that this only affects certain websites and seems to be worse on certain devices. This is most likely related to our ongoing work to bring scrolling back to parity with Edge Legacy’s behavior, so if this behavior is undesirable, you can temporarily turn it off by disabling the edge://flags/#edge-experimental-scrolling flag. This Edge Dev channel update should download and install directly but in case it doesn’t then you can head to the Edge settings and manually update the browser. Microsoft releases Edge Dev channel build 96.0.1028.0 with the ability to view Office files
  11. Today Microsoft released Microsoft Edge Beta Build 95.0.1020.9 as part of their regular 4-weekly update cycle. The Beta channel is considered to be the most stable preview channel, only releasing features well tested in the Canary and Dev version of the browser. The last major release was on 2nd September, with more minor bug fixes since. This is the first release on Chromium 95, and brings the following new features and improvements: Feature updates View in File Explorer support for SharePoint Online libraries in Microsoft Edge. Now you can enable the View in File Explorer capability on SharePoint Online Modern Document Libraries. For this experience to be visible and work for your users, you will need to enable the Microsoft Edge policy “Configure the View in File Explorer feature for SharePoint pages in Microsoft Edge” and update your SharePoint Online tenant configuration. Learn more: View SharePoint files with File Explorer in Microsoft Edge – SharePoint in Microsoft 365 | Microsoft Docs. Intranet zone file URL links will open in Windows File Explorer. You can allow file URL links to intranet zone files originating from intranet zone HTTPS websites to open Windows File Explorer for that file or directory. You can enable this experience using the IntranetFileLinksEnabled policy. Improvements to the downloads experience. Support for the download user experience is being extended to progressive web applications PWAs and WebView. We will also begin to support drag and drop to the File Explorer and Desktop. Pick up where you left off on PDF documents. You will now be able to resume reading from where you last closed your PDF document. Efficiency mode extends battery life when your laptop enters battery saver mode. Efficiency mode will become active when your laptop enters battery saver mode to allow the browser to manage resource usage to extend the battery life of your machine. You will have four options for when efficiency mode becomes active, Unplugged and low battery, Unplugged, Always, and Never. Please note: this is a Controlled Feature Rollout. Devices with a battery should have the feature turned on.

Microsoft Edge Beta build 95 is out – now with official changelog
  12. Users will now get updates for the two browsers every four weeks, though companies can opt for a slower cadence. Google's Chrome and Microsoft's Edge began their every-four-weeks release cadence with the launch last week of version 94 of each browser. Google released Chrome 94 on Sept. 21, while Microsoft issued Edge 94 three days later, on Sept. 24. From those dates, Chrome and Edge will upgrade every four weeks. Chrome 95 and Edge 95, for example, will debut Oct. 19 and Oct. 21, respectively. There will be exceptions to that pace for holidays, however. For instance, Chrome 96, the final version of 2021, will release Nov. 16, and be followed by Chrome 97 on Jan. 4, 2022, a seven-week interval. Google announced the then-upcoming change to a more frequent release schedule in early March; Microsoft quickly followed with news of its own several days later. (Microsoft cannot divorce Edge's release schedule from Chrome's because both are powered by Chromium, the open-source project dominated by Google engineers.) The new release tempo for Chrome and Edge mimics that of Mozilla's Firefox, which switched to the same four-week schedule in September 2019. Concurrent with the release of Chrome 94 and Edge 94, Google and Microsoft each also debuted an enterprise-specific release cadence named "Extended Stable," which is upgraded every eight weeks rather than four. The additional time between releases is meant to give IT admins "a longer timeline to test and validate new browser versions." Extended Stable releases are issued for Chrome and Edge on their even-numbered versions. Thus, organizations that adopt the Extended Stable model with Chrome/Edge 94 will receive Chrome/Edge 96 in November but will skip October's v. 95. IT administrators can set users' copies of Chrome to the Extended Stable release through Windows' group policies, specifically the Target Channel override option, as outlined in the online support document. (Instructions for setting Chrome to Extended Stable on macOS can be found here.) These policies can be set on-premises by admins or alternately, using Chrome Browser Cloud Management. For Edge, the same Target Channel override policy can be invoked to shift that browser to Extended Stable's eight-week release tempo. (To stick to its own lingo, Microsoft calls this the Extended Stable Channel.) Admins can also trigger the longer release schedule using Configuration Manager or Intune. Security updates that contain only patches for newly-reported vulnerabilities will continue to be received by Extended Stable builds at the same time they're issued for the generic Stable versions of Chrome and Edge. Chrome, Edge kick off faster release cadence; enterprises can skip versions
  13. Microsoft has released Edge 94.0.992.31 to the Stable channel. This is the first of the new 4 weekly rather than 6 weekly releases to all users and brings the following changes: Microsoft Edge has completed the move to a 4-week cadence for updates. We have adopted a new 4-week release cycle for major versions. Read more here: https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2021/03/12/new-release-cycles-microsoft-edge-extended-stable/ New Extended stable option being offered. We are offering a new Extended Stable option to our managed Enterprise customers. The Extended Stable option will stay on even numbered revisions and update every 8 weeks. There will be a biweekly security update. Additional information here: https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2021/07/15/opt-in-extended-stable-release-cycle/ Improvements to default behavior of opening MHTML files. MHTML files will continue to open in IE mode if IE mode is enabled, unless the MHTML file was saved from Microsoft Edge (using the Save As or Save Page As options in Microsoft Edge). If the file was saved from Microsoft Edge, it will now open in Microsoft Edge. This change will fix a rendering issue that was observed when opening an MHTML file in IE mode when saved from Microsoft Edge. Restrict private network requests to secure contexts. Access to resources on local (intranet) networks from pages on the internet requires that those pages be delivered over HTTPS. This change is happening in the Chromium project, on which Microsoft Edge is based. For more information, navigate to the Chrome Platform Status entry. Two compatibility policies are available to support scenarios that need to preserve compatibility with non-secure pages: InsecurePrivateNetworkRequestAllowed and InsecurePrivateNetworkRequestAllowedForUrls. Block mixed content downloads. Secure pages will only download files hosted on other secure pages, and downloads hosted on non-secure (non-HTTPS) pages will be blocked if initiated from a secure page. This change is happening in the Chromium project, on which Microsoft Edge is based. For more information, navigate to the Google security blog entry. Enable implicit sign-in for on-premises accounts. By enabling the OnlyOnPremisesImplicitSigninEnabled policy, only on-premises accounts will be enabled for implicit sign-in. Microsoft Edge won’t attempt to implicitly sign in to MSA or AAD accounts. Upgrade from on-premises accounts to AAD accounts will be stopped as well. New accessibility settings page. We have brought accessibility-related settings together on a single page. You can find the new edge://settings/accessibility page under the main settings list. Here you can find settings to make the web page bigger, show a high visibility outline around the area of focus and other settings that can help improve your web browsing experience. We’ll continue to add new settings here in future versions of Microsoft Edge. New Policies ApplicationGuardPassiveModeEnabled Ignore Application Guard site list configuration and browse Edge normally OnlyOnPremisesImplicitSigninEnabled Only on-premises account enabled for implicit sign-in WebRtcRespectOsRoutingTableEnabled Enable support for Windows OS routing table rules when making peer to peer connections via WebRTC Obsoleted Policy UserAgentClientHintsEnabled Enable the User-Agent Client Hints feature Users can update by simply restarting their browser. via Winfuture Microsoft Edge 94 released to the Stable channel (changelog)
  14. Microsoft and Google have both released new Stable Channel Builds that patch a critical Chromium-based Use-After-Free (UAF) vulnerability which could allow attackers to execute arbitrary code upon successful exploitation. For Edge, it is version 94.0.992.31, while for Google Chrome, it is version 94.0.4606.61. The new builds are based on Chromium version 94.0.4606.54. The vulnerability has been assigned the ID "CVE-2021-37973" and the flaw was discovered by a Google Security engineer Clément Lecigne with assistance from Sergei Glazunov and Mark Brand, among others. Google states it found the UAF vulnerability in its Portals feature and according to CERT, "a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service condition on the system". Use-After-Free is a security flaw that occurs when a program or application fails to properly manage the memory pointer after a dynamic memory portion has been freed, which in turn can lead to code execution by an attacker. A pointer stores data related to a certain address of the memory that is being used by the application. But dynamic memory is constantly flushed and reallocated for use by different apps. However, if that pointer is not set to null once its corresponding memory space has been freed or unallocated, attackers can successfully exploit that pointer data to gain access to that same memory portion to now pass arbitrary malicious code. This is why the vulnerability is named Use-After-Free. It has been assured however that both Edge 94.0.992.31 and Chrome 94.0.4606.61 have patched this critical memory-based security flaw and it is probably recommended that users update their browsers to these versions. Latest Chrome and Edge stable channel builds fix critical memory UAF security vulnerability
  15. Microsoft is working on a new feature in Edge 96 Canary which may replace Collections, Microsoft’s pinboard-like feature which can be used to organize and remember research on the web. The new edge-followable-view flag has the following description: Try the followable web beta Your existing collections won’t be migrated, but followable web feature is coming soon and you can switch back at any time. – Mac, Windows, Linux Unfortunately, the description is not very illuminating, but it may relate to the new Follow feature Chrome is working on. The Chrome Follow feature lets people follow a website and get the latest updates from that website in the Following tab within Discover in Chrome. It is not clear if a new RSS reader would be more desirable to readers than a pinboard feature, but it may offer users a greater ability to customise their news feeds than the current MSN feed offers. We will keep our readers updated on this news as it is clarified over the next few weeks. via Leo Varela Microsoft Edge may replace Collections with Followable Web feature
  16. Microsoft today highlighted the new web experiences available this month in Microsoft Edge browser. Most of the new experiences are focused around shopping except for tab groups and Microsoft Start. Tab groups in Edge will allow you to organize the tabs by grouping them together. You can add a name and a color to each tab group to help you easily find them or collapse them to make more space for other tabs. Here’s how tab groups work: To start a tab group, hold down CTRL and use your cursor to select the tabs you want to aggregate. Then right-click and select Add tabs to new group, and a menu will open with options for customization. In addition to this, the tab preview will allow you to sneak a peek of the tab when you hover over it. Microsoft Start is a new personalized news feed available across platforms. You can access Microsoft Start by clicking on content in the New Tab Page of Microsoft Edge or navigating directly to https://www.MicrosoftStart.com. Shopping features: Product reviews: You can now easily access online expert reviews and customer ratings for over 5 million products right from the address bar when shopping in Microsoft Edge. To access ratings and reviews, all you need to do is browse for an item at your favorite store and click on the blue tag on the address bar. There, you will find expert online reviews from trusted sources for the product you are viewing. You will also see the average customer star rating across online retailers. Express Checkout: The new express checkout feature speeds up the guest checkout experience. To use this feature, select guest checkout within the retailer site and then click Try express checkout in the address bar. Review the information for accuracy and then click Try all coupons and autofill details. If you haven’t used express checkout before, fill in your information once, and have Microsoft Edge save it for all your future purchases. Travel recommendations: Edge now offers recommendations for your travel destination. When you search for flights, you will see a notification appear in the address bar. Click on that to see the recommendations for your destination for restaurants, sightseeing and more, saving you time as you plan your trip. This feature is currently available in the U.S. across the top 10 booking sites. Support for additional sites and markets will be coming soon. Flights and Hotels search: A new faster way to search for flights and hotels. This feature is designed to save you time by carrying your entries for departure location, destination and number of passengers when looking for flights. When you visit a new booking site, Microsoft Edge will ask if you want to use the same information you entered on a prior travel site, saving you time when planning your travels. Click on Continue to see the changes apply. Flight search in Bing: You can now enjoy updated flight search experience on Microsoft Bing. Now, you don’t need to go to a flight aggregation site and fill out the intake form. On the Bing search bar, simply type what you’re looking for – such as “Seattle to JFK flights” – and all available results will pop up in an instant for you to explore further.

  17. Microsoft today released the final Edge 95 build for the Dev channel, bringing version 95.0.1020.0 to users. The reason that this is the final build for version 95 for the Dev channel is that Edge now follows a condensed release timeline, with major version releases now happening once every four weeks. This is the build that is now expected to move to Beta channel users as the firm preps to move to the next major version. As for today’s build, there are a couple of significant improvements. To begin with, Edge now defaults to the Windows 11-style design, bringing rounded corners and other updated design elements. On Windows 11, the browser supports translucent elements in the title bar and context menus as well. Up until now, these features have been hidden under an experimental flag. It must be noted, however, that the new design is still a work-in-progress, so there might be rough edges and inconsistencies. The second major improvement comes in the way of support for view restoring for PDFs on Edge. The feature allows users to pick up PDFs from where they left them, meaning that Edge will now remember the page number, zoom state, and layout of the document, making it easy to read long PDF files and offering the reader in the browser as a viable alternative to other apps. For those that need it, there is an option to turn the feature off. The feature will ship to all users with Edge 95. Other improvements being made with today’s build include the ability to annotate with a pen on screenshots captured through the in-build web capture tool, support for opening local files in the iOS version of the browser, and the addition of a few new management policies. Here is the complete list of new features: Features enabled by default: Windows 11-style visual updates (note that these are still in development). The ability to annotate PDFs with freeform text. See https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/articles/add-text-to-your-pdf-documents/m-p/2752561 for more details. The ability for PDFs to restore what page they were on when they are re-opened. The ability to annotate web captures with ink. Management policies (note that updates to documentation and administrative templates may not have occurred yet): Added a policy to control if Intranet File Links are Enabled, which controls if file: URLs located on intranet pages will open File Explorer. Enabled support for the policy from Chromium to control if Cross Origin Web Assembly Module Sharing is Enabled. Enabled support for the policy from Chromium to control if the Display Capture Permissions Policy is Enabled. Improved support for opening local files in the browser on iOS. As usual, there are a bunch of bug fixes that are making it to the browser. Here are the changes that improve the reliability of the browser: Fixed a crash when using Password Generator. Fixed a crash when using the Web Widget. Fixed a crash when navigating in an IE mode tab. Fixed a crash when using Tab Groups. Fixed a crash when interacting with info bars. Fixed a crash when closing an autofill popup. Mobile: Fixed a crash on startup. Fixed a crash when the device orientation changes. Fixed a crash when signing into the browser. Fixed a crash on older versions of iOS. Fixed an issue on Mac where checking for updates in Settings sometimes crashes Settings. Fixed an issue where certain applications installed on the device cause all tabs to crash as soon as they’re opened. Fixed a hang when opening Internet Explorer. Fixed a hang when closing the browser. And here are the fixes that are aimed at addressing changed behavior: Fixed an issue on certain flavors of Linux where the browser won’t open. Fixed another issue where users are signed out of the browser after updating the browser. Fixed an issue where video volume sometimes gets reset to max. Fixed an issue where Favorites sometimes can’t be clicked. Fixed an issue where importing certain data from other browsers fails. Fixed an issue where Travel Search Assistance doesn’t appear when it should. Fixed an issue where Travel recommendations don’t appear in places they should. Fixed an issue where the Define card sometimes doesn’t disappear when it should. Fixed an issue where certain banner UI can’t be interacted with or closed. Fixed an issue where the link to try the HTTP version of a webpage on the error page that appears when the HTTPS version of the page isn’t available doesn’t actually try navigating to the HTTP version of the website. Fixed an issue where PDF titles as shown in the browser tab are garbled. Fixed an issue where pinned websites sometimes become unpinned after updating the browser. Fixed an issue on older versions of Windows where browser installation fails. Fixed an issue where free text annotation on PDFs doesn’t work at the edges of the page. Fixed an issue where download notifications sometimes aren’t shown in popup windows. Fixed an issue where Jumplist actions are missing from PWAs or websites installed as apps on Windows 11. Mobile: Fixed an issue where InPrivate sometimes can’t be used. Fixed an issue where the sign in screen gets stuck when signing into the browser. Fixed an issue on Android where menus sometimes don’t work when another app is split-screen with the browser. Fixed an issue where passwords can’t be edited or deleted because nothing on the Passwords Settings page works. Fixed an issue where Rewards don’t work. Fixed an issue where the button to enter Immersive Reader sometimes isn’t visible when it should be. Developer: Fixed an issue in WebView2 applications where certain resources are omitted when published the application (Issue 730, Issue 1061). Fixed an issue when building WebView2 apps that contain XAML Islands (Issue 1716). Obsoleted the management policy to control if Internet Explorer Integration Testing is Allowed. Lastly, there are a bunch of known issues that users should be aware of, something that the firm always includes in these release notes. Here is the complete list: Users of certain ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on YouTube. As a workaround, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to proceed. See this help article for more details. Some users are still running into an issue where all tabs and extensions immediately crash with a STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error. The most common cause of this error is outdated security or antivirus software from vendors like Symantec, and in those cases, updating that software will fix it. Users of the Kaspersky Internet Suite who have the associated extension installed may sometimes see webpages like Gmail fail to load. This failure is due to the main Kaspersky software being out of date, and is thus fixed by making sure the latest version is installed. Some users are still seeing favorites get duplicated. This issue should be reduced now that automatic deduplication has been introduced into Insider channels, but we’re still rolling that out in Stable. We’ve also seen duplication happen when running the manual deduplicator on multiple machines before either machine has a chance to fully sync its changes, so make sure to leave plenty of time in between runs of the deduplicator. Some users are seeing “wobbling” behavior when scrolling using trackpad gestures or touchscreens, where scrolling in one dimension also causes the page to subtly scroll back and forth in the other. Note that this only affects certain websites and seems to be worse on certain devices. This is most likely related to our ongoing work to bring scrolling back to parity with Edge Legacy’s behavior, so if this behavior is undesirable, you can temporarily turn it off by disabling the edge://flags/#edge-experimental-scrolling flag. As is always the case with these builds, they are being released in a staggered fashion. While not all users will see the update show up, it should be served to all Dev channel users sooner rather than later. Additionally, with the release of today’s build, both Dev and Canary versions are now on the same version. Final Edge 95 build for the Dev channel brings Windows 11-style visuals and more
  18. Microsoft has updated Edge Stable today to version 93.0.961.52. The update is an out-of-band update that fixes a serious security issue that was being exploited in the wild. The security update addresses eight vulnerabilities, including CVE 2021 30633, which is a Use After Free in Indexed DB API bug. Microsoft has not released the exact details of the exploit, but it’s severity is rated High. Google fixed the same bug in Chromium 2 days ago. You can download the update simply by restarting your browser. via DesktopModder Microsoft Edge Stable updated to version 93.0.961.52 with important security fix
  19. Microsoft today released the new v95.0.1011.1 build for Edge Dev channel users. This new build comes with the ability to hide the Picture in Picture overlay control, an element some IE users find annoying. Find the full changelog of the Edge Dev Channel build below: Added features: Added the ability to hide the Extensions button by right-clicking it on the address bar or in the … menu. Added a setting on Mac to hide the Picture in Picture overlay controls. Completed feature rollouts: Enabled by default improvements to Windows Task Manager when running on Windows 11.

Added a policy to control if Visual Search is Enabled, which controls reverse image search. Added a policy to control Shadow Stack Crash Rollback Behavior, which controls if the hardware-enforced stack protection security feature in certain devices should be enabled following a crash that’s triggered by it. Enabled support for the policy from Chromium to control if Browser Legacy Extension Points Blocking is Enabled, which controls if legacy extensions are allowed to load code into the browser’s main process for compatibility with other applications. Developer: Added support for the No Frame Merging in IE mode tabs. Added support for the navigator.share API in PWAs on Mac OS. Improved reliability: Fixed a crash on launch. Fixed a crash on startup when certain extensions are installed. Fixed a crash when switching profiles. Fixed a crash when changing languages in Settings. Fixed a crash when logging into a website. Fixed a crash when using Smart Copy. Fixed a crash when using Application Guard. Fixed an issue where tabs sometimes crash with a breakpoint error. Fixed a crash when closing PWAs or websites installed as apps. Fixed a crash when using Overlay Scrollbars. Fixed a crash when saving autofill info via a popup.

Fixed an issue where the Read Aloud controls sometimes don’t work. Fixed an issue on Linux where the Collections pane sometimes can’t be opened. Fixed an issue where Collections are sorted incorrectly. Fixed an issue where the button to close a tab sometimes isn’t visible when the Vertical Tabs pane is too narrow. Fixed an issue where spellcheck sometimes triggers even when it’s disabled. Fixed an issue where Smart Copy copies more than just what’s selected. Fixed an issue where debug.log files sometimes mysteriously appear on the device. Fixed an issue where the different headers of the History menu don’t show the correct sections when clicked. Mobile: Fixed an issue where SSO no longer works. Fixed an issue where signing into the browser sometimes doesn’t enable sync as well. Fixed an issue where the browser can be signed into with the same account multiple times. Fixed an issue on iOS where signing into the browser fails. Fixed an issue where a sign-in error is shown in Settings even though there is no error. Fixed an issue on Android where autofill sometimes fails. Fixed an issue where images sometimes don’t render properly. Fixed an issue on iOS where certain webpage resources sometimes don’t load. Fixed an issue on iOS where certain popups will close as soon as they’re opened. Fixed an issue where links that open in new tabs sometimes close or navigate back as soon as they’re opened. Fixed an issue in WebView2 apps where flickering appears (Issue 1621). Fixed an issue where popups opened from IE mode tabs are sometimes scaled incorrectly. Obsoleted the management policy to control if Legacy Same Site Cookie Behavior is Enabled. Known issues: Users of certain ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on YouTube. As a workaround, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to proceed. See this help article for more details.

  20. Microsoft is making it easier to save a web page in Edge as a PDF. The feature, which is currently in Edge Canary, would add the option as a top-level entry in the right-click menu, the same as Save and Print. The option is more intuitive and obvious than printing a web page as a PDF, the current implementation. The feature is being tested in Edge 95 Canary, but it appears to be available as a controlled roll-out and not available to everyone at present. via Techdows Microsoft is making it easier to save a web page as a PDF
  21. Microsoft today released the new v95.0.1000.0 build for Edge Dev channel users. This new build comes with the ability to sync IE mode site lists and several bug fixes. Find the full change log of Edge Dev Channel build below. Added features and bug fixes: Added the ability to sync custom IE mode site lists between devices. Re-enabled the improved browser profile sign-in dialog. Fixed a crash on launch on Linux. Fixed a crash when clicking the … menu in a PWA or website installed as an app. Fixed a crash when watching videos. Fixed a crash when using Smart Copy. Fixed an issue where the browser crashes when switching to a different profile, including Guest or Kids mode. Fixed an error when exporting a Collection to Word.

  22. Microsoft Edge Canary build users were facing a serious inconvenience over the weekend. After the Edge was started, the browser started opening windows, seemingly at random. After 5 minutes or so, users will have 6-7 new Edge windows apart from the one they opened intentionally. Today, Microsoft released a new Edge Canary build to fix the issue. You can update to Edge version 1008 to fix this random window issue. Source: Microsoft Microsoft fixes the Edge canary build issue which opened new windows randomly
  23. Microsoft has brought their latest Stable version of Edge to Android, with Edge 93 now rolling out to Android users. The update does not bring any UI changes to the browser, unlike on the desktop where it brings Vertical Tab improvements, but it does bring a number of under the hood changes, such as the removal of 3DES in TLS and policies to bypass ClickOnce and DirectInvoke prompts, and of course a number of security improvements. Microsoft has recently merged the code base for the desktop and mobile versions, meaning features can flow more easily from the desktop to the mobile client. Previously the Edge for Android browser was stuck on Chromium 77, which is far from ideal for security. You can download the latest version of Edge for Android from the Google Play store here. Microsoft Edge: Web Browser Developer: Microsoft Corporation Price: Free via Techdows Microsoft updates Edge for Android to Edge 93
  24. Following on from Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge is getting support for the “Well-known URL for change Passwords” web standard. The feature is designed to make it easier for users to change their passwords if Edge discovers they are on the list of compromised passwords available to hackers on the Internet. The feature integrates with the Password Health and Password Monitor in Edge and presents users with an easy to use Change button when such a compromise is detected. Users are then taken to the Change Password page of the website with the leaked password. Edge can then also help users generate strong passwords to replace the leaked one. Chrome has been working on this feature since November last year, but at present only a few websites support it, though this is likely to change in the future. The feature is present in Edge 94, which is currently in the Beta channel but should come to the stable version in a few weeks. via Techdows Microsoft Edge 94 now supports “Well-known URL for change Passwords”
  25. Microsoft today announced the availability of Microsoft Edge 93 Stabe release. This build version 93.0.961.38 comes with several new improvements like Tab groups, ability to hide title bar in Vertical tabs mode, the ability to easily enter Picture in Picture (PiP) mode and more. Find the full changelog below. What’s new Microsoft Edge 93 Stable: Initial Preferences in Microsoft Edge. Microsoft Edge now supports a limited number of Initial Preferences (formerly Master Preferences). IT admins can deploy these settings as default before the browser is run for the first time by their users. Additional information here: Configure Microsoft Edge using Initial Preferences settings for the first run. IE mode on Microsoft Edge will support “no-merge” behavior. For an end-user, when a new browser window is launched from an IE mode application, it will be in a separate session, similar to the no-merge behavior in IE11. You will need to adjust your site list to configure sites that need to prevent session sharing as “no-merge”. Behind the scenes, for each window of Microsoft Edge, the first time an IE mode tab is visited within that window, if it is one of the designated “no-merge” sites, that window is locked into a different “no-merge” IE session from all other Microsoft Edge windows at least until the last IE mode tab is closed in that window. This follows previous behavior where users could launch IE with no-merge and could also launch Microsoft Edge without no-merge via other mechanisms. Additional information here: IE mode troubleshooting and FAQ | Microsoft Docs New policy to stop implicit sign in. The ImplicitSignInEnabled policy allows system administrators to disable implicit sign-in on Microsoft Edge browsers. Policies to bypass ClickOnce and DirectInvoke prompts. We have updated our policies to enable bypassing ClickOnce’s prompts and DirectInvoke’s app for specified file types, from specified domains. To do this, you will need to: Enable ClickOnceEnabled or DirectInvokeEnabled Enable AutoOpenFileTypes policy and set the list of specific file types that ClickOnce and DirectInvoke should be disabled for Enable the AutoOpenAllowedForURLs policy and set the list of specific domains that ClickOnce and DirectInvoke will be disabled for. Note: AutoOpenAllowedForURLs is a supporter policy for AutoOpenFileTypes. If AutoOpenAllowedForURLs is not set and AutoOpenFileTypes is set, then file types listed will automatically open from all URLs. Tab Groups. We are turning on tab grouping which provides the ability to categorize tabs into user-defined groups and helps you more effectively find, switch and manage tabs across multiple workstreams. Hide the title bar while using Vertical Tabs. Get the extra few pixels back by hiding the browser’s title bar, while in Vertical Tabs. Now you can go to edge://settings/appearance and under the Customize Toolbar section select the option to hide the title bar while in Vertical Tab mode. Video Picture in Picture (PiP) from hover toolbar. When you hover over a supported video, a toolbar will appear that allows you to view that video in a PiP window. Please note: this is currently available for Microsoft Edge users on macOS. Removal of 3DES in TLS. Support for the TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA cipher suite will be removed. This change is happening in the Chromium project, on which Microsoft Edge is based. For more information, navigate to the Chrome Platform Status entry. Additionally, in Microsoft Edge version 93, the TripleDESEnabled policy will be available to support scenarios that need to preserve compatibility with outdated servers.
