  1. Microsoft Edge update makes switching between devices seamless Quickly send open tabs to your other devices to pick up where you left off Microsoft is rolling out a new update for its Edge browser that will allow users to easily pick up where they left off when switching between devices. The software giant's tab sharing feature has undergone months of testing on desktop and mobile in Edge's Canary Channel and now it will soon be available to users that aren't Microsoft Edge Insiders. Microsoft Edge's new tab sharing tool allows users to send tabs to different devices with just a few clicks so that they don't need to email a URL to themselves or go through their history to find a particular webpage in order to pick up where they left off. The company's tab sharing tool is now rolling out to a small group of users on Windows 10 and macOS though it will likely become available to all Edge users soon. Sharing tabs in Edge To test out Edge's tab sharing tool, you'll first need to open a webpage in the browser, click on the address bar and then select the “Send this page” option. Doing so will allow you to send the current webpage you're viewing to all of your support devices that are currently signed into your Microsoft account. The shared tab will then appear on the receiving device with a notification from Microsoft Edge that includes both the name and URL of the webpage. Alternatively, you can also right-click on any link in your address bar and select the device you want to share it with. It's worth noting that you will need to have Microsoft Edge installed on your other devices and be signed into your Microsoft account to take advantage of this feature. Since the release of Chromium-based Edge last year, Microsoft has continued to add new features to its browser. While tab sharing is a welcome addition to Edge, both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox have allowed users to send tabs to other devices since 2019.

  2. Edge Canary now lets you show and hide vertical tabs with a keyboard shortcut Microsoft has recently introduced vertical tabs to Edge, allowing users to regain vertical screen space which can be used for content rather than chrome. Most of us are however still used to horizontal tabs, and acknowledging this, Microsoft has added a keyboard shortcut in the latest Edge Canary to switch quickly and easily between vertical and horizontal tabs. Now, simply pressing Control+Shift+Comma will let you easily switch between the modes. Pressing the key combo leads to the following transformation. The improvement is now available in Edge Canary Build 93.0.925.0. via Leo Varela Edge Canary now lets you show and hide vertical tabs with a keyboard shortcut
  3. Microsoft releases Edge Dev build 93.0.916.1 with a bunch of bug fixes It’s a new week, which means it’s time for a new Edge Dev build. Today, build 93.0.916.1 is heading out to Dev channel users, and there isn’t much in the way of features. This is the second release for version 93, which was released last week and brought with it improvements for macOS users such as support for biometric authentication when auto-filling content, and more. There were a few PWA improvements as well. This week, the Redmond firm is also linking to a few announcements related to the Add-ons Growth Campaign to allow users to win prizes for installing extensions. The main goal is to “create a surge in extension downloads”, the firm says. Additionally, the company is also detailing the visibility improvements it is making to DevTools. As for features, this week’s build adds to management policies from Chrome, along with the fixes to reliability and the like. Here is what’s new in today’s Dev channel release: Enabled support for a management policy from Chromium to control if CECPQ2 is Enabled. Enabled support for the management policy to control if Local Browser Data Share is Enabled, which lets surfaces in Windows search through the browser’s user data. Here are the improvements that the firm is making to improve the reliability of the browser: Fixed an issue on Mac where the browser sometimes doesn’t open. Fixed a crash on launch. Fixed an issue where clicking on the … menu sometimes crashes the browser. Fixed a crash when using the Collections popup menu. Fixed a crash when clicking the Vertical Tabs button. Fixed a crash when setting the default browser. Fixed a crash when clicking the … menu in PWAs. Fixed an issue where selecting the Define option from the mini context menu crashes the browser. And here is the list of changes that will address changed behavior: Fixed an issue where certain website permission Settings pages appear blank. Fixed an issue where searching for Settings brings up inaccurate results. Fixed an issue where the keyboard shortcut to enter Immersive Reader works on pages it isn’t supposed to. Fixed an issue where password generation puts the new password in more fields than necessary. Fixed an issue where the profile switcher is appearing on PWAs that aren’t eligible for profile switching. Fixed an issue where the … menu in PWAs sometimes doesn’t render properly. Fixed an issue where turning on vertical tabs when in full screen sometimes leads to tabs no longer being visible. Fixed an issue where UI is unexpectedly pink. Fixed an issue where pasting content into a Collection sometimes creates extra text notes. Fixed an issue where dragged vertical tabs don’t follow the mouse cursor properly. Lastly, there are the known issues that are detailed, with some of them having been present for a while. There is the complete list: Certain extensions such as the Microsoft Editor extension don’t work on Linux. As soon as they’re installed, they crash and are disabled. We’re currently investigating. 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 usual, the update should automatically be pulled by the browser in the background. However, you can always head into the About Microsoft Edge settings to manually check for updates and initiate the download. Microsoft releases Edge Dev build 93.0.916.1 with a bunch of bug fixes
  4. Microsoft Edge is getting an even more private browsing mode CET support is coming to version 94 of Edge Microsoft is making private browsing mode even safer in Edge by adding Intel's Control-Flow Enforcement Technology (CET) to its browser. This security feature, which is supported on Intel 11th Gen or AMD Zen 3 CPUs, is already enabled in Windows 10 as the software giant had adopted CET through an implementation known as Hardware-enforced Stack Protection in its operating system. Google recently added Hardware-enforced Stack Protection to Chrome as well though Microsoft Edge was the first Chromium-based browser to adopt CET with the release of the Canary build of version 90 of its browser. Soon even more Edge users will be able to take advantage of CET support for safer browsing when this feature rolls out later this year. Control-Flow Enforcement Technology In a new post on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap, the software giant revealed that CET support for Edge is currently in development and will arrive with the release of version 94 of Edge in September. To take advantage of this feature, your system will need to have either an Intel 11th Gen or AMD Zen 3 CPU. However, you can also disable CET by changing Image File Execution Options (IFEO) using group policy. As the browser is becoming one of the most used tools by employees working from home as well as by those whose organizations are implementing hybrid working, Microsoft's decision to add CET support to Edge will help keep workers safe from new exploits and attacks designed to be delivered remotely. Microsoft Edge is getting an even more private browsing mode
  5. Microsoft Edge gets a silly update that procrastinators and time-wasters will love Microsoft Edge browser game receives host of upgrades (Image credit: Microsoft) It’s a little-known fact that Microsoft Edge has an in-built tool designed specifically for the hardcore procrastinators and time-wasters among us, called Surf. The browser game, which challenges players to surf as great a distance as possible without colliding with obstacles or falling prey to a sea monster, has received a host of upgrades with the latest early-access Edge build. According to William Devereux, Senior Program Manager for Edge, Surf now boasts a new set of obstacles, a streamlined character selection menu, a way to share scores with friends, as well as a number of bug fixes that improve performance. The TechRadar Pro team isn't very good at Surf (Image credit: Microsoft) Microsoft Edge game Although the latest iteration is currently available to members of the early-access program only, via the Canary channel, Surf can be played by all Edge users simply by typing “edge://surf” into the URL bar. Inspired by the 1991 classic SkiFree, the Edge surfing game continues an honorable tradition started by Google with Dino Run, an on-the-rails side-scrolling platformer playable whenever Chrome loses connection to the internet. In a blatant act of one-upmanship, Microsoft has taken the concept of a hidden browser game to a whole new level with Surf, which features multiple playable characters, charming pixel art visuals and a power-up system. The game also has three distinct game modes - Endless, Time Trial and Zig Zag - and can be controlled via keyboard, mouse, touch and, incredibly, Xbox or PlayStation controller. “Surf as far as possible in an endless ocean, compete for the shortest time, or zig zag through as many gates as you can in a row,” reads the official blurb. “Who knows? There might even be a few secrets just waiting to be found.” The latest Surf update will no doubt leave users asking one question: is this the arena in which the browser wars will finally be decided? Microsoft Edge gets a silly update that procrastinators and time-wasters will love
  6. Microsoft updates Edge Immersive Reader with new fonts, more Microsoft released a new Edge Dev build yesterday, but they left out one of the new features from the official changelog. Microsoft has delivered some improvements to the Edge Immersive Reader feature, which strips a page of distracting elements such as unnecessary graphics and ads and improves the reading experience. Microsoft has added additional fonts to the feature, and users can now select between Calibri, Sitka, and Comic Sans which should further improve the experience for those using it for accessibility purposes. Microsoft has also added a new flag to Edge called Auto Immersive Reader, which would automatically load a page in Immersive Reader mode for eligible pages. Currently, there does not appear to be a way to control which pages are affected, but Microsoft is still presumably developing this feature. The improvements are currently available in Edge Canary and Edge Dev and should come to the mainstream version of Edge in a number of weeks. via Leo Varela, Techdows.

  7. Microsoft Edge 93 out for Dev channel users, brings macOS-specific additions and more As promised last week, Microsoft is releasing the first Edge 93 build to users in the Dev channel, bumping up the build to 93.0.910.5. This comes a day after version 92 was promoted to the Beta channel. Since this is the first version 93 build for this channel, the changes are minor, the firm says. In addition to the features, the company is also highlighting its recent announcements, such as support for automatic HTTPS, new font rendering improvement experiments that debuted in Edge 92 – hidden under a flag, and more. As for today’s release, there are a few enhancements for the browser on the Mac, which include a new button to enter Picture in Picture mode on certain videos and support for biometric authentication for viewing or auto-filling passwords, both of which are useful additions. Other enhancements include improved latency when inking on the browser and the addition of a share option in the ellipsis menu on Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) that are installed as apps. As is the case every week, there are also a bunch of fixes and improvements accompanying the new features. These are split into reliability improvements and fixes to address changed behavior. Here are the three fixes made in this release to improve the reliability of the browser: Fixed a crash when navigating to a website. Fixed a crash when using the profile switcher in PWAs. Fixed a crash when using Google Meet. The list of fixes to address changed behavior is longer and includes the following: Fixed an issue where certain Settings pages are blank. Fixed an issue where the Immersive Reader toolbar is sometimes blank. Fixed an issue where icons on the toolbar that have text bubbles on them, for example extension buttons, are clipped or only partially visible. Fixed an issue where pinning a website to the Taskbar sometimes fails. Fixed an issue where toast notifications from websites sometimes don’t appear. Fixed an issue where the Save/Save As buttons in the Downloads popup aren’t shown properly in certain languages. Fixed an issue on Mac where opening a new tab sometimes doesn’t scroll the vertical tabs pane to make the newly-opened tab visible. Fixed an issue where irrelevant data is saved by autofill. Fixed an issue where user-installed fonts sometimes aren’t displayed correctly. Fixed an issue where Guided Switch settings for specific websites sometimes aren’t respected. Disabled the ability to customize the site list for Guided Switch on devices that have Information Protection enforced since the functionality is broken in this scenario. Lastly, there is the list of known issues that users should be aware of when using the offering. A few of these listed in the post have been on the list for a while, so users must already be familiar of them. Here is the complete list of known issues: Certain extensions such as the Microsoft Editor extension don’t work on Linux. As soon as they’re installed, they crash and are disabled. We’re currently investigating. 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.

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. Today's Dev channel update should automatically be downloaded and installed in the background. However, users can also head into the About Microsoft Edge setting to force the browser to check for an update and pull the update from the servers if it is being made available for that device.

  8. Edge is getting its own ad tracking opt-in prompt on Windows 10 In April and May iPhone users had to deal with a wave of apps asking permission to track them on the platform, after Apple made changes to their policies forbidding apps from tracking users without their consent. It seems Edge users will soon have to deal with the same, as Microsoft begs users to allow them to use your browser data to show you targetted ads on Windows. Techdows reports that in the latest Edge Dev builds Microsoft is now showing a pop-up asking consent to personalize Edge and Microsoft services ch as Search, shopping, News, and Ads. The prompt is controlled by a new setting called “Share browsing data with other Windows features”. The setting description notes: Share browsing data with other Windows features When turned on, Microsoft Edge will connect local browsing data from this profile with the rest of Windows. Turning this feature on will help you find information from your history, favorites, top sites and recent tabs more easily using features such as the search box on the taskbar in Windows. If you turn off this feature Microsoft Edge will remove the data shared with Windows on the device and stop sharing any new browsing data from this profile. The setting would in effect bypass the end of cookies by directly transmitting your Edge browsing data to Microsoft’s ad services, a level of tracking I don’t think most readers would be happy with. The feature is expected to roll out to mainstream users by the end of July this year. Would our readers consent to all their browsing data being shared with Microsoft and used for ads and other personalization? Let us know below.

  9. Microsoft Edge 92 rolls out to the Beta channel with vertical tabs improvements and more Microsoft has begun rolling out Edge version 92 to users in the Beta channel, sticking to the timeline mentioned in the release schedule. As is the case generally, there is no official changelog yet as the firm usually posts it later in the day. However, the version has been in testing in the Canary and Dev channels for a while now, so there is a fair bit of information on what is new. When the changelog does get posted, it can be found here. With version 92 being promoted to the Beta channel, both Dev and Beta channels users are now running the same major version. However, that is expected to change soon as the company is slated to release the first Edge 93 build to Dev channel testers this week. The firm does note on the first-load welcome page for the Beta update that there isn’t much to talk about with this latest release. However, the Redmond giant is detailing the various announcements from the past few weeks, including those made during its Build conference. As for what’s new in version 92, there are improvements to vertical tabs, with the browser now letting users turn the feature off across all open windows. Users can also choose to hide the title bar when vertical tabs are enabled. Edge 92 also introduces automatic HTTPS that switches connections to the secure protocol on sites that support it. The firm is also bringing new font rendering improvements to improve rendering at higher contrast levels. The feature is currently hidden behind a flag. Other minor improvements include enhancements to pinning History and Downloads menus, Immersive Reader additions, and improvements to PWA menus that are installed as apps on the desktop. Those interested in reading through the changelogs for the complete list of Dev channel releases for version 92 can navigate to the individual posts below: Edge Dev 92.0.873.1 Edge Dev 92.0.878.0 Edge Dev 92.0.884.2 Edge Dev 92.0.891.1 Edge Dev 92.0.902.2 Considering that the update has just begun rolling out, it might be a while before it shows up for all Beta channel users. You can also force check for an update by heading into Settings > Help and feedback > About Microsoft Edge. As usual, the release will eventually make it to all users and install in the background. Microsoft Edge 92 rolls out to the Beta channel with vertical tabs improvements and more
  10. Microsoft is testing Edge auto-fill for custom fields The auto-completion of passwords and payment details has to a large degree enabled the e-commerce revolution, and today we can report that Microsoft is looking to expand that capability to more areas. In the latest Edge Canary builds, Microsoft is offering users to save and edit details for custom fields such as passport or account numbers, so you would only ever have to enter them once. Users would be able to specify if the number is sensitive (e.g. payment details) in which case Edge would as you to authenticate first before filling in the details. The feature is currently being tested in insider versions via a controlled roll-out. via Leo Varela Microsoft is testing Edge auto-fill for custom fields
  11. EdgeDeflector 1.2.1.0 release fixes weather not opening in the News and Interest widget You may have heard about EdgeDeflector from an article we did in which we feature it as a way to change the behavior of the new News and Interests widget that ignores your default browser when links are opened from it. This little tool changes how Windows 10 stubbornly defaults to the Edge browser to open links from Help dialogs, Cortana and News and Interests, and instead forces it to respect what you chose in the Default apps > Web browser settings of Windows. The developer of EdgeDeflector has released a new version bringing it up to version 1.2.1.0 just over a month after releasing 1.2.0.0 which was a major release. In this version there's just one important change in the release notes: Resolved an issue where weather links on the task bar would not open. (New in Windows 10 21H1.) As a reminder, below is the release notes from the more major 1.2.0.0 version, which was released after a three and a half years hiatus, to address changes in the way Windows 10 blocks automation of setting some features during installation; much in the same way that it is no longer possible for software installations to set App defaults, this must now be done manually. Here are those release notes: New post-installation greeting page helps user through manual installation steps. (Changes in Windows 10 prevents automation during installation.) Now installs per-user. (No longer requires administrative permissions to install.) Resolved issues that caused anti-virus programs to consider the installer and program suspicious. Resolved potential localization issue. The developer warns that any old versions prior to 1.2.0.0 must be uninstalled before installing the newer versions. If you're upgrading from 1.2.0.0 to 1.2.1.0 you will not need to uninstall it first. To use, follow the steps below: Download and install EdgeDeflector v1.2.1.0 from the Releases page on GitHub, Go to All settings > Apps > Default apps, Scroll to the bottom and click Choose default apps by protocol, Locate MICROSOFT-EDGE in the list and click on the program icon to the right of it, Select EdgeDeflector from the list. Confirm the change if asked to. The above process is also detailed here, which also lets you reverse the above steps, if needed. If you want to learn more about how EdgeDeflector works and why it was created, you can visit the developer's blog post on it, here.

  12. Microsoft announces improved font rendering in Microsoft Edge on Windows Microsoft today announced improved font rendering in Microsoft Edge on Windows. The Edge team has improved the contrast enhancement and gamma correction to match the quality and clarity of other native Windows applications which utilize DirectWrite. Also, Edge’s font rendering will now respect user ClearType Tuner settings when applying text contrast enhancement and gamma correction. Here’s how you can enable this improved font rendering: Enable edge://flags#edge-enhance-text-contrast flag This improved font rendering is now available in the latest Canary builds of Microsoft Edge on Windows. Microsoft has plans to enable this feature by default in the Edge 92 stable channel. Source: Microsoft Microsoft announces improved font rendering in Microsoft Edge on Windows
  13. The final Edge 92 build for the Dev channel is now out with a few new features After a bit of a hiatus, Microsoft has returned to a Tuesday schedule for Edge Dev builds as it today released version 92.0.902.2. The firm adds that this will be the last major build for version 92 as it prepares to promote the version to the Beta channel. However, there could be a few minor updates between now and when the first version 93 build makes it to the Dev channel. As for this week’s update, the firm is detailing the ability for users to add a Web Capture image to Collections directly from the feature’s markup page, making it easy to quickly capture sections of or entire web pages and save it to a Collection, which is a nifty feature for students that are working on projects. The ability was first announced earlier last month. Other new features include the completion of the rollout of the new Extensions menu, the Price History feature, improved options in PWAs that are installed as apps, and more. The company also recapped the announcements from last week’s Build conference, including the rollout of Edge 91 to all users. Here is the entire list of features added with this week’s build: Added a feature flag to enter Immersive Reader automatically when navigating to an eligible page. Improved the … menu in PWAs and websites installed as apps to only show relevant options. Finished rolling out the new Extensions menu, Smart History Search, and Price History. Enabled by default the ability to pin the Favorites, History, etc. menus and have that state remembered, as well as the Collections popup menu. Added management policies to control if the setting for AAD Website SSO Using This Profile is Enabled, the Automatic HTTPS Default setting, if Internet Explorer Integration to Reload In IE Mode is Allowed, the Internet Explorer Integration Local Site List Expiration in Days, and if Local Browser Data Share is Enabled, which controls how Edge shares local user data with the Windows Search Indexer. Note that updates to documentation and administrative templates may not have happened yet. As usual, the build also brings with it a number of fixes to improve the reliability of the browser. These include fixes for browser crashes when closing a tab or navigating between websites. Here are all the reliability improvements: Fixed an issue where new tabs crash as soon as they’re opened. Fixed an issue where navigating to certain websites sometimes crashes the browser. Fixed an issue where typing into a password field sometimes crashes the browser. Fixed a crash when closing a tab. Fixed an issue on Mac where closing a tab sometimes crashes the browser. Fixed a crash when opening InPrivate windows. Fixed a crash when installing a PWA or website as an app. Fixed a crash using Smart Copy or Web Capture. Fixed an issue where opening items in a Collection sometimes crashes the browser. Fixed an issue where searching for a setting sometimes crashes the Settings page. Fixed an issue on Mac where searching for settings causes the Settings page to go blank. Fixed an issue where the Settings page to view all permissions for a particular website is blank. Fixed a hang when opening the browser. Fixed an issue where AV1 videos sometimes don’t work. And here are the fixes being made to address changed behavior: Fixed an issue where certain videos, like on Amazon, fail to play with the error “video unavailable”. Fixed an issue where recent tabs aren’t restored via ctrl+shift+T if a PWA or a website installed as an app has recently been closed. Re-enabled PWAs and websites installed as apps to be restored with the browser’s previous session. Fixed an issue where the dialog to restore tabs after the browser unexpectedly shuts down sometimes appears unexpectedly if certain extensions are installed. Fixed an issue where the Default Cookie Setting management policy unexpectedly disables the setting to Block Third-Party Cookies. Fixed an issue on Linux where sync doesn’t work. Fixed an issue with syncing favorites. Fixed an issue where printing multiple times sometimes fails. Fixed an issue where the History popup sometimes scrolls or goes blank unexpectedly. Fixed an issue where new windows couldn’t be opened from the Jumplist. Fixed an issue where tooltips sometimes get stuck onscreen. Fixed an issue where the list of trackers in the site info popup is blank. Fixed an issue where corrupted extensions can’t be repaired. Fixed an issue where favorites imported from another browser sometimes aren’t arranged correctly. Fixed an issue where importing certain types of data from other browsers fails. Fixed an issue where the “Switch to this tab” button in the address bar dropdown sometimes goes to the wrong tab. Fixed an issue where Web Capture or Smart Copy don’t automatically scroll when selecting content. Fixed an issue on Mac where keyboard shortcuts sometimes have missing or incorrect symbols. Fixed an issue where certain UI like the new tab button is unexpectedly colored red. Deprecated the management policy to control if Internet Explorer Integration Testing is Allowed. Obsoleted the management policy to Enable Sha 1 For Local Anchors. Disabled Kids Mode on Linux. Lastly, there is the list of known issues that users must be aware of, including issues with the Microsoft Editor extension on Linux, which the firm says it is investigating. Here is the complete list of known issues with this build: Certain extensions such as the Microsoft Editor extension don’t work on Linux. As soon as they’re installed, they crash and are disabled. We’re currently investigating. 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 always, the update should automatically be downloaded and installed in the background. However, users can choose to head into the About Microsoft Edge setting to force check for an update and download it. As mentioned earlier, this might be one of the last major version 92 builds, which will then be promoted to the Beta channel sometime next week. The final Edge 92 build for the Dev channel is now out with a few new features
  14. Microsoft fixes Microsoft Edge 91 nag screens and startup page bug Microsoft has pushed out a fix for the Microsoft Edge 91 startup bugs and nag screens plaguing users since the new version of the browser was released. Last week, Microsoft Edge 91 was released, and users immediately began reporting that the browser was not opening to their configured startup page, and a 'Use recommended browser settings' nag screen being shown too often. Microsoft Edge nag screen Soon after we reported on these bugs, Microsoft pushed out what appears to be a configuration change, and users are now saying [1, 2] that the bugs are fixed after restarting the browser. When Microsoft Edge launches, it will connect to Microsoft servers and download a configuration file specific to your device. This configuration file contains various directives regarding what features are enabled, what experiments you are enrolled in, and other settings. A snippet of the Microsoft Edge configuration As we were affected by the bugs in the release of Microsoft Edge 91, we were able to test the new configuration changes, and the issues have been fixed on our end. While it is not clear what Microsoft changed to fix these issues, you can now close the browser and restart it again for the fix to go into effect. Thx to Opera for the tip! Microsoft fixes Microsoft Edge 91 nag screens and startup page bug
  15. Microsoft released Microsoft Edge 91 yesterday, and since then, users have been reporting constant nag screens, bugs, and problems using the new version of the web browser. Microsoft Edge 91 is a milestone release for the browser with numerous new features introduced, such as Price History, Cash Back & Rebates, Kids Mode, a new Pride theme, and personalized news. New features in Microsoft Edge 91 Microsoft Edge 91 release marred with bugs However, after upgrading to Microsoft Edge 91, users have been reporting numerous problems that BleepingComputer has reproduced on our own devices. The most annoying issue that people are experiencing is a new Microsoft Edge nag screen continuously shown on startup asking users if they want to 'Use recommended browser settings.' For some users, if they close the dialog or specify not to update the browser settings, the nag screen continues to show when they restart the browser. Use recommended browser settings nag screen In BleepingComputer's test, this only happened to us when Bing was not configured as the default search engine, but we cannot say for sure if that is the reason. Microsoft Edge users have also reported on Wilder Security Forums, Microsoft Edge Insider forums, and the Feedback Hub, that the browser Edge is no longer honoring their configured startup page and is opening the New Tab page instead. Feedback Hub report about ignored startup page BleepingComputer was able to reproduce this bug after we changed the startup page to BleepingComputer.com, and the New Tab page continued to open when we relaunched the browser. Finally, other users report stranger issues, such as a missing + symbol to open a new tab or unable to use the middle mouse button to open items in their Favorites folder. Microsoft Edge 91 missing the new tab + dialog Some users have reported that most of these problems go away after resetting Microsoft Edge to default settings. Thx to Opera for the tip! Source
  16. Microsoft says Edge 91 will be the best-performing browser on Windows 10 Microsoft's Build event for 2021 is about to kick off, and with it comes a torrent of announcements for developers and businesses. But there's also some news for Edge users, which are getting an update to version 91 later this week. Microsoft has said that, after the update, Edge will be the most performant browser on Windows 10, thanks to improvements made to two features: startup boost and sleeping tabs. First off, startup boost will help Edge launch even faster by running some core Edge processes in the background. Microsoft says this doesn't use additional resources when Edge windows are open. Naturally, to keep background processes running, some resources do have to be used before the browser is opened, though. As for sleeping tabs, Microsoft says it can help you save up to 82% in memory usage by putting inactive tabs to sleep. When a tab is put to sleep, Edge can do things like pause ads immediately, saving up resources right off the bat. There are also some Windows-specific improvements to save system resources in this update. You can customize sleeping tabs so they're put to sleep after a specific period of time, and protect certain websites from going to sleep if there's a risk of losing important content. Edge 91 is currently available in the Beta channel, so we already have a good idea of what other features will be in the stable release, like new color themes available out of the box, a new price history feature, and a password monitor. These user-facing announcements come on top of some developer news like the general availability of WebView2 in WinUI 3. Additionally, PWAs can now be submitted to the Microsoft Store.

  17. Microsoft Math Solver will be available as a preview feature in Microsoft Edge 91 Back in March, Microsoft started testing Math Solver feature in Microsoft Edge browser. Microsoft today announced that Math Solver will be available as a preview feature starting with Microsoft Edge 91 stable. Microsoft Math Solver allows anyone to snap a picture of a math problem and get an instant solution with step-by-step instructions to help them learn how to reach the solution on their own. Math Solver also offers many options to continue learning with additional materials such as quizzes, worksheets, and video tutorials. Microsoft Math Solver is available now in Microsoft Edge Canary, Dev, and Beta channels). You can go to the settings menu (…) in the top right corner of the browser, open More Tools and select Math Solver to use this feature.

  18. You'll soon be able to hide the Edge title bar when using vertical tabs Microsoft's Edge browser is getting a very welcome improvement to vertical tabs - a feature that finally made it to the stable channel a couple of months ago after first being announced in March of 2020. Soon, you'll be able to hide the title bar of the browser when using vertical tabs, at least if a new flag spotted by Reddit user Leopeva64-2 is anything to go by. The flag is available in the latest version of Edge Canary, which is 92.0.891.0. Once you enable the flag, if you're using vertical tabs, you can right-click the title bar to see the option to hide it. The option is also shown if you right-click an empty area of the tab management side bar, or the New Tab button. A toggle for the feature can also be found in the Appearance section of the browser settings. Vertical tabs allow users to move their tabs from the top of the screen to the left side of the browser window, stacking them vertically instead. This allows each tab to get a larger text description, making it easier to find a specific tab when you have dozens of them open. However, some users have pointed that there's some wasted space because moving the tabs to the side of the window doesn't free the space at the top. Instead, it just displays the title of the current tab and the window controls. With this change, the space at the top of the browser window is freed up, with window controls being pushed next to the address bar and toolbar buttons. It may take some time for this capability to be fully rolled out, but the fact that it's on the way should already be good news for those using vertical tabs. If you want to try this out right now, you can download Edge Canary from the Edge Insider webpage, but as tends to be the case with preview software, you may face some instability.

  19. Edge for Linux is now available in the Beta channel A Linux version of Microsoft's Chromium-based Edge browser has long been in the works, with the Redmond company first teasing it at Build 2019 and officially announcing it later that year. However, it wasn't until October of last year that the Dev channel of the Edge Insider program debuted on Linux. Over six months later, it's now time for the Beta channel to make its way to Linux users, Microsoft announced today. Since its Linux debut back in October, Edge has gained some new capabilities, including the ability to sign in with a Microsoft account and enable syncing across devices. The availability of Edge Beta for Linux lines up with last week's release of Edge 91 in the Beta channel, and it includes those improvements we've seen over the past few months. It's been a long journey for Linux users so far, and given how long it's taken for the Beta channel to become available, there's no telling when a stable release will happen. Microsoft also doesn't offer the Canary channel of Edge - which gets updated on a daily basis at the expense of stability - for Linux. Either way, a Beta release should offer more stability than what we've had so far. Edge Beta for Linux is available as both a Debian/Ubuntu package and as an .rpm file for Fedora or openSUSE users. If you use the Windows Subsystem for Linux and you're a Windows Insider in the Dev channel, you can also try the Edge browser there, since Microsoft recently added support for Linux GUI apps in Windows 10.

  20. Microsoft Edge to add automatic HTTPS option for all domains Microsoft Edge will automatically redirect users to a secure HTTPS connection when visiting websites using the HTTP protocol, starting with version 92, coming in late July. By default, this new option will allow Edge users to switch from HTTP to HTTPS on websites that are likely to support the more secure protocol. However, users will also be able to configure the browser to upgrade all connections to HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) as the default internet communication protocol for all domains. "Starting with Microsoft Edge version 92, users will have the option to upgrade navigations from HTTP to HTTPS on domains likely to support this more secure protocol," Microsoft said. "This support can also be configured to attempt delivery over HTTPS for all domains." Blocks MITM attacks and web traffic tampering This change will further secure Edge users' web traffic against man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack attempts to snoop on data exchanged over unencrypted HTTP connections. Given that data sent and received via HTTP connections is not encrypted, malicious programs running on one's computer can easily monitor all the information sent over it, including passwords, credit card info, and various other sensitive info. Ensuring that you're always using HTTPS while browsing the Internet helps secure your data while in transit by encrypting the connection between the sites you're visiting and the web browser. HTTPS also makes sure that threat actors trying to snoop on your web traffic will not be able to alter any of the data exchanged with Internet sites without being detected. Other browsers also allow enabling HTTPS on all sites This move is part of a greater effort where browser vendors defend users from attackers attempting to intercept their unencrypted traffic by making it easier to browse the entire web over HTTPS. For instance, starting with version 90 released earlier this month, Google Chrome defaults to HTTPS for any URLs typed in the address bar if there's no protocol specified. With the release of Firefox 83, Mozilla also added an HTTPS-Only Mode that secures web browsing by automatically rewriting URLs to use the HTTPS protocol (while disabled by default, it can be enabled from the browser's settings). Until Microsoft Edge adds the Automatic HTTPS option, users can enable HTTPS for all sites with the help of the HTTPS Everywhere extension available on Microsoft's Edge Add-ons store.

  21. Final Edge Dev build based on Chromium 91 includes new printing options and more Though it came a little later than it usually does, Microsoft has released its weekly build of the Edge browser to Insiders running the Dev channel version of the browser. This week's update brings the version number to 91.0.864.1, and as promised last week, it's likely the last build based on Chromium 91 in the Dev channel. Edge 91 should move to the Beta channel soon, while the Dev channel will move on to version 92. There are no mind-blowing new features in this release, but it does include some notable improvements. Specifically, it's now possible to print documents at their actual size or choose to fit them to the page, and a new prompt when trying to close a browser window with multiple tabs. Here's the full list of new features: Added options to print documents at their actual size or to fit them to the page. Added an option to prompt before closing a window with multiple tabs open. Added the ability to clear Media Foundation data on demand. Note that on-exit is coming later. Enabled Math Helper by default on Mac and Windows now that the rollout has completed. Added a management policy to enable Math Solver. Enabled support for the Chromium management policy to control Explicitly Allowed Network Ports. Added support for ClickOnce on Windows 7. As usual, the new build also comes with an array of fixes and improvements. First off, there are some reliability-focused fixes, which should help prevent crashes in the browser. Here's the full list: Fixed a crash when dragging and dropping tabs. Fixed a crash on launch that makes it appear as though the browser isn’t opening. Fixed an issue where certain websites crash a few seconds after loading. Fixed a crash when interacting with the Favorites popup. Fixed a crash when sorting Collections. Fixed a crash when Collections sync is enabled. Fixed a crash when closing tabs while popups like the Find On Page bar are open. Fixed a crash when Shopping is enabled. There's also a list of fixes for Edge's behavior, and it's a lengthy one this week. If you've noticed broken favicons in the new tab page, that should be fixed with this update: Fixed an issue where the favicons for the Top Sites tiles on the New Tab Page are broken. Fixed an issue where Collections appear to have no items in them even though they do. Fixed an issue Collections deletes and undeletes sometimes don’t work or don’t sync. Fixed an issue where the Site Information popup incorrectly states that webpages currently being viewed in Immersive Reader are aren’t secure even though the original webpage was. Fixed an issue where the management policy to Save Cookies On Exit isn’t working for certain websites when the Default Cookies Setting is set to delete cookies on exit (option 4). Fixed an issue on Linux where online voices for Read Aloud sometimes aren’t working. Fixed an issue where the basic authentication prompt appears for websites when the Windows Hello prompt is expected because a management policy is set. Improved the Immersive Reader keyboard shortcut to apply to more pages. Fixed an issue where Immersive Reader eligibility for some pages unexpectedly disappears when interacting with the pages. Fixed an issue tab drag and drop sometimes doesn’t work with vertical tabs if tabs are pinned. Fixed an issue where websites that are installed as apps sometimes don’t handle links that should open in them (instead, the links open in regular tabs). Fixed an issue where translating web pages can sometimes cause content on them to disappear. Fixed an issue where dropdowns on webpages appear to be autofill data even when they aren’t. Fixed an issue where the Device Mode button in the F12 Dev Tools sometimes doesn’t work. Fixed an issue where right-clicking on Collections sometimes doesn’t bring up the correct menu. Fixed an issue where popups from IE mode tabs sometimes open in regular tabs instead of IE ones. Obsoleted the management policy to enable Proactive Auth. Finally, there are still some known issues in this release, which is to be expected in the Dev channel. Most of the known issues have been around for a while. Here's the full list: Certain extensions such as the Microsoft Editor extension don’t work on Linux. As soon as they’re installed, they crash and are disabled. We’re currently investigating. 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. The update should install itself automatically sooner rather than later, but if you'd rather not wait for it to happen, you can head into the browser's settings to check for updates manually. If you're using Edge on iOS, Microsoft recently announced that it's opening up the TestFlight program to test the new version of the browser that's part of the process to unify the codebase across platforms. A new version of Edge Canary has also recently been made available on Android. Source: Final Edge Dev build based on Chromium 91 includes new printing options and more
  22. Microsoft Edge is getting a performance mode on Windows 10 Microsoft Edge is an incredible desktop browser, packing basically all important features available on the market today. Microsoft is now working on a new feature called “performance mode”, designed specifically for performance, especially when you’re gaming or using other apps. In 2020, Microsoft introduced Sleeping Tabs to reduce the amount of RAM and CPU (processing) power used by the browser. This feature alone isn’t enough to improve the overall system performance as there are factors affecting Edge’s RAM and CPU usage on Windows 10. As shown in the screenshot below, Microsoft Edge is now adding a new “Performance mode” option to the System settings of the browser. When enabled, Edge will try to optimize overall web browsing speed, responsiveness and reduce CPU, RAM and battery usage without affecting the overall experience. However, Microsoft noted that the performance improvements will vary and the result ultimately depends on users browsing habits. Performance mode in Microsoft Edge aims to reduce overall resources usage In our tests, we observed that that “performance mode” forces Sleeping Tabs when tabs are inactive for five minutes. By default, sleeping tabs are set to go to sleep after two hours of inactivity. When performance mode is enabled, Edge will discard tabs after only five minutes of inactivity and you can still wake up a sleeping tab by simply clicking on it. Microsoft Edge will also detect heavy resources activity in the background (such as audio or video) and block those tabs from sleeping. As you may be aware, Edge’s sleeping mode is based on a core Chromium technology that prevents background activities and scripts to minimize resource usage while saving the browsing data. This should cut down memory, CPU and battery usage in most cases. In addition to the sleeping tab, Edge’s performance mode will also tweak other browser settings to improve the performance. It’s worth noting that all sites and browser features work as before after enabling the performance mode. The feature is currently available in Microsoft Edge Canary 91 for select users and should make its way into the stable release later this year.

  23. Microsoft Edge 90 is out with Kids Mode and more Right on schedule, Microsoft is releasing Edge 90 today. The big hero feature of this version is Kids Mode, something that was first introduced in the lower channels back in February. The idea, as you can probably guess, is to provide a safer browsing experience for children. There are two separate settings for Kids Mode based on your child's age, so you can set it for 5-8 or 9-11. All you have to do if click on the profile picker in the top-right and choose "Browse in Kids Mode". In order to get back, you'll need to authenticate your account so kids can't do it themselves. First of all, tracking prevention is set to the maximum level in Kids Mode, no matter which age group you choose. There's also a white-list of about 70 sites, although as Microsoft said you'd be able to do from the beginning, you can customize that list. You also get Bing SafeSearch to make sure that adult content is blocked in search results. All of that stuff is for both age groups, but if you choose 9-12, there are some perks. For example, there's a news feed on the New Tab Page with content from MSN for Kids. These can be about science, fun facts, animals, and more. There are also browser themes that are based on Disney titles like Frozen, The Little Mermaid, Cars, Toy Story, and Coco. Along with Kids Mode, there are a few other minor new features, such as a better history search. The whole idea is to make search terms a bit more like natural language. So, instead of trying to remember the name of that book that caught your eye while you were shopping yesterday, you'll be able to search for something like, "book from yesterday". Password Monitor is now generally available. It actually started rolling out back in January, but it should be available for everyone now. It lets you know if any of your passwords have been found on the dark web. To manually update your Edge browser, you can go to Settings -> About Microsoft Edge. If you don't do that, the browser will be updated in the background at some point today. Source: Microsoft Edge 90 is out with Kids Mode and more
  24. Microsoft Edge for Android released as a preview Microsoft released Microsoft Edge for Android today to the public. Android users who want to try out Edge for Android can download and install the development version from Google Play. Microsoft Edge Canary for Android is compatible with Android 5.0 and newer devices. Microsoft Edge for Android is based on the latest version of Chromium, the current stable version of Microsoft Edge is based on a very old version of Chromium. Microsoft's Store description reveals that it plans to release daily updates. Want to be one of the first to preview what’s new? The Microsoft Edge preview channels are now available for mobile! This is the Microsoft Edge Canary channel for Android. Canary will be released daily to keep you up to date on our progress. Your feedback is what helps us improve, so download now and let us know what you think. The mobile browser displays prompts on first start. Most notably is a data collecting prompt that is unchecked by default, the option to customize the browser's new tab page and theme, and an option to add a Microsoft account for syncing. The browser opens its tab page by default. It contains a few links to popular destinations, e.g. Wikipedia, Facebook, BBC and Amazon, and a search field to run searches on Bing or type addresses directly. The interface design is different from Chromium and Google Chrome. Edge displays an account icon in the upper left corner, and the new tab page customization option in the upper right corner. Users who are looking for settings and other options need to activate the three-dots icon at the bottom of the screen. It displays links to internal pages, including favorites, downloads and settings. and also quick link actions such as "add to collection" or "search web". Edge for Android includes tracking protection and SmartScreen protection, powered by Microsoft Defender. Just like most Chromium-based browsers, Edge does not support the installation of browser extensions. Closing Words Microsoft Edge for Canary is the first step in launching the new browser on Google's Android platform. Microsoft has not revealed when it plans to release the first stable version of Android. Source: Microsoft Edge for Android released as a preview
  25. Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge zero-day vulnerability shared on Twitter A security researcher has dropped a zero-day remote code execution vulnerability on Twitter that works on the current version of Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. A zero-day vulnerability is a security bug that has been publicly disclosed but has not been patched in the released version of the affected software. Today, security researcher Rajvardhan Agarwal released a working proof-of-concept (PoC) exploit for a remote code execution vulnerability for the V8 JavaScript engine in Chromium-based browsers. Just here to drop a chrome 0day. Yes you read that right.https://t.co/sKDKmRYWBP pic.twitter.com/PpVJrVitLR — Rajvardhan Agarwal (@r4j0x00) April 12, 2021 While Agarwal states that the vulnerability is fixed in the latest version of the V8 JavaScript engine, it is not clear when Google will roll out the Google Chrome. When the PoC HTML file, and its corresponding JavaScript file, are loaded in a Chromium-based browser, it will exploit the vulnerability to launch the Windows calculator (calc.exe) program. While no developer likes a zero-day release for their software, the good thing is that Agarwal's zero-day cannot currently escape the browser's sandbox. The Chrome sandbox is a browser security boundary that prevents remote code execution vulnerabilities from launching programs on the host computer. For Agarwal's zero-day RCE exploit to work, it would need to be chained with another vulnerability that can allow the exploit to escape the Chromium sandbox. To test the exploit, BleepingComputer launched the Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome browsers with the --no-sandbox flag, which turns off the Chromium sandbox. With the sandbox disabled, we could use Agarwal's exploit to launch Calculator on our Windows 10 device. Our tests' exploitable versions are Google Chrome 89.0.4389.114 and Microsoft Edge 89.0.774.76, which are the latest versions in the Stable channel. This vulnerability is believed to be the same one used by Dataflow Security's Bruno Keith and Niklas Baumstark at Pwn2Own 2021, where the researchers exploited Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. getting popped with our own bugs wasn't on my bingo card for 2021. not sure it was too smart of Google to add that regression test right away... https://t.co/e0RUlmbxRK — Niklas B (@_niklasb) April 12, 2021 Google is expected to release Chrome 90 to the Stable channel tomorrow, and we will have to see if the upcoming version includes a fix for this zero-day RCE vulnerability. BleepingComputer has contacted Google about the zero-day but has not received a reply as of yet. Source: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge zero-day vulnerability shared on Twitter
