  1. Microsoft makes it difficult to download Microsoft Edge with Firefox and Chrome Many Windows users use the built-in web browser of the operating system to download other browsers to their system. First it was Internet Explorer, then the classic Edge, and now the new Edge that has been used for that purpose. Microsoft is still in the process of pushing its new Edge browser to Windows systems, and many systems, for instance Windows 10 systems right after installation, still come without the new version of Edge. Windows users who want to download the new browser
  2. What's in the latest Edge update? Rollbacks and new browser telemetry policies Microsoft's Edge 86 includes a "rollback" function that lets IT admins restore an earlier version of the browser and gives the built-in PDF viewer support for document tables of content. Microsoft Microsoft earlier this month released Edge 86, adding a "rollback" function that will let IT admins restore an earlier version of the browser and enhancing the built-in PDF viewer with support for document tables of content. The Redmond,
  3. Naughty Microsoft: Edge gets caught installing Office web apps without asking Reportedly happening to testers using preview builds of Windows 10 (Image credit: Microsoft) Microsoft’s Edge browser is reportedly stealthily installing the firm’s Office web apps on Windows 10 PCs, or at least those being used by Windows Insiders who test preview builds of the OS. Normally, the Office web apps (which are free PWAs or Progressive Web Apps) are available to install in your browser (like Edge, or rivals such as Chrome), and user
  4. Microsoft begins Manifest v3 tests in Edge that impacts extensions like content blockers Microsoft announced today that extension developers are now able to test the new extension manifest v3 in the company's Edge browser. When Google announced Manifest v3 for extensions back in January 2019, concern was voiced almost immediately over the company's plans. High profile extension creators such as Raymond Hill, best known for his work on uBlock Origin, stated that extensions like his would no longer be usable after the changes landed in Google Chrome. The new API had a li
  5. Microsoft is improving the favorites menu in Edge Microsoft's Edge browser seems to be consistently getting new features and improvements to existing ones lately, and today another big change is being announced. The Redmond giant has announced a change to the favorites experience in the browser, making it easier for users to see and manage their favorite websites in a pinch. Currently, the favorites button in the top bar of the Edge window only displays a list of the favorites in the "root" folder, with sub-folders being available in individual dr
  6. Microsoft Edge will soon allow users to disable the 'reveal password' option Microsoft has been working hard on improving the Chromium-based Edge web browser and the company's upcoming feature will allow users to disable the password reveal button on different websites. Last year, Microsoft added an option to reveal the password on websites after typing in an effort to help users verify their typed passwords. The feature was handy but it posed a security risk as Microsoft does not allow users to set master passwords. Now, the company has added a s
  7. Chrome and Edge users will never have to worry about losing tabs again Microsoft is a regular contributor to the open-source Chromium project, which benefits both Edge and Chrome (Image credit: Softulka / Shutterstock) Microsoft has announced a new addition to the open-source Chromium platform that will benefit users of both Edge and Chrome web browsers. The company has pledged to improve the browsers’ tab retention facilities, which come
  8. Microsoft Edge now has price comparisons and a really useful screenshot tool The screenshot tool will automatically scroll so you can grab the entire webpage Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Microsoft is adding a price comparison feature to its Edge browser just in time for the holidays, alongside a really useful screenshot tool that will let you easily capture an entire webpage. Both features are part of a broader update for Edge this month that includes a number of minor additions that im
  9. First Look at Microsoft Edge's upcoming Reset Sync feature Microsoft's new Chromium-based Edge web browser supports the syncing of user data like most browsers out there. Edge users may enable sync to synchronize personal data such as their Favorites, Settings, passwords, browser extensions, or form data between Edge instances. Some options like the ability to sync the browsing history or open tabs, are promised but not available yet. Up until now, Edge users could disable the synchronization from an Edge instance by activating the "Turn off
  10. Microsoft pushes Edge as 'best for business' in battle with Chrome At this year's Ignite conference, Microsoft offered up a host of reasons why its browser is better for the enterprise than Google Chrome. Do those claims stack up? Microsoft Microsoft last week pitched Edge as "the browser for business," as in fact, "the best browser for business," and revealed some of the new features and functionality it will use to convince customers that its aspirations are more than posturing. Edge, which Microsoft relau
  11. Edge Dev build 87.0.654.0 now out with a couple of minor features and bug fixes After a slightly delayed Dev channel release last week thanks to the virtual Ignite conference, Microsoft has released this week’s Edge Dev build that brings a couple of new features and a bunch of fixes. The update bumps up the version to 87.0.654.0. Considering that this week’s build comes just five days after the previous one, it is a minor release. The company also detailed a new ‘Web capture’ feature this week that brings a screenshot tool within the browser, mimi
  12. Microsoft rolling out custom themes support for the new tab page on Edge Back in 2018, Microsoft ditched EdgeHTML and adopted Google's Chromium framework for its web browser. Since then the company has been working alongside Google to improve the Chromium framework as well as Chromium-based Microsoft Edge. Now, Microsoft has added another feature to the Edge browser that allows users to download custom themes from the third-party stores and apply it to the new tab page (via Techdows). Earlier this year, the firm added support for themes from the C
  13. Dear Microsoft, could you make Edge a little more obnoxious? So I’m sitting here plunking away on one of my production Win10 version 1909 machines, when a new update appears. 2020-08 Microsoft Edge Update for Windows 10 Version 1909 for x64-based Systems (KB4576754) I needed to reboot the system – it had been running for almost two days without a reboot (sarcasm alert) – and when Windows came back up for air, Edge appeared full-screen. I tried clicking lots of things, but it wouldn’t disengage. In the end I navigated through a four-screen “tutorial” that, by default, wanted
  14. Edge Dev 87.0.644.4 is out with dark theme in sidebar search Microsoft usually releases its latest Edge Dev build earlier in the week, but it can be forgiven since the team was pretty busy. This week was Microsoft's Ignite 2020 conference, the company's biggest event of the year. News from the Edge team is that the browser is coming to Linux next month. Today, the team released Edge Dev version 87.0.644.4. There isn't much in the way of new features, but there are a couple of things. For one thing, there's dark theme support in sidebar Search. Her
  15. How to change your Microsoft Edge password or reset it It may not be immediately obvious how to change your Microsoft Edge password (Image credit: Microsoft) All modern Microsoft products share a single account username and password known as your Microsoft account. So, the password you use in Microsoft Edge is the same password you use for other Microsoft products, such as Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office. In this article, we show you how to change your Microsoft account password from within Microsoft Edge. We also
  16. Scripts are loaded from Facebook, Reddit, Google and more Microsoft is edging its bets MICROSOFT'S CHROMIUM-BASED Edge browser, which is currently available in public beta, fires off more than 130 requests to almost 50 endpoints when it is launched. That's according to former Microsoft engineer Jonathan Sampson, who has examined six of the most popular web browsers and the communications they make in the background when web users first start using them. Most of Edge's requests appear to be made to Microsoft properties, encompassing Windows
  17. How to Try Out the New Data Cleaning Feature in Microsoft Edge Like the majority of browsers, the upcoming Chromium-based Microsoft Edge will come with options to let users delete browsing data like history, cookies, cached images, and files. This isn’t necessary surprising, as these tools are an essential feature of modern browsers, especially now that privacy is playing such a key role for our experience online. The existing preview version of the Chromium-powered Microsoft Edge already comes with options to clear browsing data on Windows
  18. How to Disable Microsoft Edge YouTube Thumbnails in Media Controls Overlay As part of its efforts to overhaul Edge browser, Microsoft is making some pretty significant contributions to the Chromium project, including features that end up being used by Google Chrome as well. One of these most recent additions to the feature arsenal of both Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome is support for YouTube thumbnails in the native media controls overlay in Windows 10. While this may sound a very complex thing at first, it is, in fact, something that’s really simple o
  19. How to Enable the Microsoft Edge Translate Feature Microsoft’s new Chromium-based Edge browser evolves, and every single update for the Canary version introduces new functionality that should be part of the stable release as well. The Canary build of Microsoft Edge is updated daily, while the Dev version, which is also up for grabs right now, receives further refinements every week. At this point, the Dev build is supposed to be the more stable of the two. The latest update for Microsoft Edge Canary brings the browser to version, and it includ
  20. How to download and install Microsoft Edge on Windows 7 In case you haven’t heard, Microsoft has recreated Edge browser on Chromium for Windows 10, macOS and now Windows 7. Microsoft has just released the first preview build of Edge browser for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 Microsoft Edge for Windows 7 offers experience and features like its Windows 10 counterpart, including Internet Explorer mode, rounded corners, and more.

  21. Microsoft Edge Reddit AMA: Edge might come to Linux No "technical blockers" to prevent Microsoft from shipping Edge for Linux. Image: Microsoft The Microsoft Edge developer team has held an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Reddit today, and the company's engineers have revealed some of their plans on various current or upcoming features. The biggest tease the company dropped was its apparent willingness to release an Edge version for Lin
  22. Microsoft Edge Updated with Handy “Icon Only” Mode for Favorites Microsoft keeps working on additional improvements for its Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, and the Canary build is a neat way to try some of these in advance. Because it’s updated every day, the Canary build always gets something new, and today that something new is an icon only mode for favorites. As reported on reddit, Microsoft has introduced a feature that it announced at the Build developer conference earlier this year, basically making managing favorites a little bit easier. The c
  23. Yesterday, something really weird happened: for some unknown reason, users of Microsoft’s new Chromium-based Edge browser were forced to use the old YouTube experience and asked to install Chrome when they tried to use the modern YouTube experience. No one really knew exactly why that happened, and Microsoft even had to reach out to Google about the issue. After more than 24 hours, Google has now re-enabled the new YouTube experience for Microsoft Edge preview users. That means if you use the new Microsoft Edge browser, you will now be able to use the modern YouTube ex
  24. Two weeks ago the first build of the Stable version of the new Microsoft Edge browser leaked, and today a new version has become available. Unlike the Dev or Canary versions, the Stable version will actually replace the older EdgeHTML-powered browser with the Chromium version and the browser represents the final version Microsoft will eventually roll out to regular users. The current leaked build is Build and can be downloaded here. Be warned though that once installed there is no going back – the old Edge is gone for good. Source
  25. Is Internet Explorer a Better Browser than Microsoft Edge? Microsoft has surrendered once again in the browser market, deciding to give up on its own browsing engine and move Microsoft Edge to Chromium. The company has tried to play down this migration by emphasizing that contributing to the Chromium project brings major benefits to the entire web, obviously without discussing the actual reasons that forced it to come down to such a decision. In reality, Microsoft Edge has never become the browser Microsoft hoped it would be. Launched with much fanfare as Project Spa
