  1. 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
  2. This week's Edge Dev build lets users tweak icons for installed PWAs, brings more fixes Microsoft today released a new Edge build to users running the Dev channel version of the browser, bumping the version to 93.0.957.0. Edge version 93 is now reaching its final few builds as the company prepares to promote this version to the Beta channel early in August. Therefore, the changes on these few final builds will be minor, as is the case with today’s build. Additionally, the company has also posted a blog to detail the steps to be taken by enterprise users to opt into the Extended Stable channel, a version of the stable channel release geared towards business users that will adhere to an 8-week update cadence, which is a departure from the stable channel’s 4-week update schedule. The Extended Stable channel will be available starting with Edge 94, which is slated to be released in September. As for today’s build, the feature list is short, with the only notable change being the addition of the ability to change installed PWA icons. These are accompanied by a bunch of new management policies. Here is the complete changelog: Added the ability to change the icon for PWAs or websites installed as apps when they’re installed. Added management policies (administrative templates and documentation to come): Added a management policy to control if OneAuth Authentication is Enforced. Added a management policy to control Printing a Webpage Layout. Added a management policy to set an Autoplay Allowlist. Added a management policy to give or take away Feature Flag Overrides Control. Added a management policy on Mac to control if MAU is Enabled, which controls if updates occur through Microsoft AutoUpdate. As is always the case, there are a bunch of fixes that help with making the browser more reliable, especially for those that cause crashes. Here is the complete list of reliability improvements: Fixed an issue where the browser doesn’t open. Fixed an issue on Linux where the browser doesn’t open. Fixed a crash when typing into the address bar. Fixed a crash when closing a window. Fixed a crash when spellcheck is enabled. Fixed a crash on startup when certain extensions are installed. Fixed a crash when closing certain popups. Fixed a crash when playing certain videos. Fixed an issue where PWAs can’t be installed or repaired. Fixed a crash on Mac when syncing Collections. Fixed an issue where pressing F6 sometimes crashes the browser. Fixed a hang when closing the browser. Fixed an issue where the browser sometimes can’t be uninstalled and gives an error saying to close all windows and try again. These are followed by fixes that address changed behavior. These include fixes to Edge PWAs, PDF reader issues, and much more. Here are all the fixes: Fixed an issue where certain videos don’t have any sound. Fixed an issue where websites pinned to the Taskbar sometimes unexpectedly disappear. Fixed an issue on Linux where the Password Settings page is blank. Fixed an issue where certain AV1 or HEVC videos don’t play. Fixed an issue on Linux where tabs sometimes disappear visually from the tab band. Fixed an issue where the cookie exceptions list in the delete browsing data settings sometimes doesn’t remember changes. Fixed an issue where the PDF viewer sometimes reports being on a different page than it actually is. Fixed an issue where the button to set the Default browser in Settings doesn’t work. Fixed an issue where the management policy to import browsing data sometimes misses data. Fixed an issue where dragging an image into a Collection sometimes fails. Fixed an issue where the arrow keys sometimes can’t be used to move the cursor when editing a text note in a Collection. Fixed an issue where empty text notes sometimes crash the Collections pane. Fixed an issue where the Collections pane sometimes doesn’t fully load. Fixed an issue where profiles sometimes say Not Syncing when it’s not expected that there should be any message. Fixed an issue where the site information popup sometimes doesn’t open properly. Fixed an issue where the option to open a downloaded PDF in the system viewer doesn’t work. Fixed an issue where password health and leak alerts sometimes don’t appear in Settings. Fixed an issue where pages sometimes don’t get translated when it’s expected that they should be. Fixed an issue where context menu options on certain popups don’t work. Fixed an issue where deleting a profile sometimes unexpectedly opens a Kids Mode window. Fixed an issue where autofill popups sometimes don’t appear if the text in the textbox has a misspelling that triggers the spellcheck popup. Fixed an issue in WebView2 where files with certain names sometimes fail to download. Fixed an issue in WebView2 where microphones sometimes can’t be used because permission requests are never shown. Fixed an issue where PDFs that should have Information Protection applied to them don’t. Fixed an issue where browser windows sometimes open unexpectedly if extensions are installed. Lastly, there are the known issues that Dev channel users need to be aware of. Interestingly, some issues have been on the list for a while now, spanning multiple versions, such as the Microsoft Editor bug. There is no word on what is causing the issue or when a proper fix is expected to be made. With that said, here are all the known issues listed for 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 usual, these updates are automatically installed in the background. However, since they are generally released in a staggered fashion, not all users will see the update show up right away, even when trying to force-check for it via the About Microsoft Edge page. For those running stable builds, version 92 is expected to be released to all users sometime this week. This will be followed by version 93 moving to the Beta channel. It is currently not known as to when the stable version of the browser based on the unified codebase will make it to mobile users. This week's Edge Dev build lets users tweak icons for installed PWAs, brings more fixes

Fixed an issue where certain Dev Tools panes like 3D View are blank. Fixed an issue where PWAs or websites installed as apps created from IE mode sites don’t launch. Fixed an issue where exporting a Collection to OneNote from an InPrivate window doesn’t work. Fixed an issue where downloading a currently-open Office file causes the tab to become blank. Fixed an issue where Favorites to non-webpages sometimes don’t open. Fixed an issue where Web Capture area selection stops unexpectedly. Fixed an issue where text notes in Collections sometimes aren’t saved properly. Fixed an issue where the button to send feedback doesn’t work. Fixed an issue where popups are sometimes rendered offscreen. Fixed an issue where generated passwords sometimes aren’t saved for later use with autofill. Fixed an issue where Favorites can be added via an IE mode tab even though this ability is disabled in regular tabs via a management policy. Fixed an issue where certain payment card details aren’t imported correctly from other browsers. Fixed an issue where favicons are sometimes blank or black squares.

Obsoleted TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1 in the SSL Version Min management policy. Lastly, there is a list of known issues that users must be aware of, including some that have found their place on the list for months now. Here are all the issues that the firm has listed: 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.

  4. Microsoft Edge Dev and Canary builds get a new Share menu with an 'Email to myself' feature Microsoft today announced that it is rolling out a new share menu for users running Canary and Dev builds of Microsoft Edge on the desktop, bringing a design that is akin to what is present on mobile apps. The new Share menu replaces the default. Windows and macOS share option, providing users with quick share targets in the way of app icons and a nifty way to add one’s email address to share webpages with themselves. The native share menu, however, can be accessed by clicking on the “share options” icon. Currently, the new menu supports a small list of apps that include Outlook, Gmail, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp – which is more than the existing options in the stable version. The firm says that it will be adding support for more apps in the coming weeks. Tapping on any of the app options opens those services in a new tab with the requisite information. There is also the option to copy a link to the webpage, similar to the option present in the native flyout on Windows. The other interesting and useful option being added especially for those who like to email themselves webpage links is the ‘Email to myself’ feature. Users can save their own email addresses and quickly share links to those addresses right from the browser. Clicking on the saved IDs automatically populates an email with the webpage title in the subject line and the URL in the body. This feature might prove useful for those who do not enable tab or history syncing on their mobile devices or use a different browser on their phones. Since the feature is just beginning to roll out to Dev and Canary channel builds, not all users will receive it right away. The Redmond firm says that it will be adding a separate flag to Edge Canary in the next few days to force-enable the feature. Microsoft Edge Dev and Canary builds get a new Share menu with an 'Email to myself' feature
  5. This week's Edge Dev build enables Tab Groups by default, adds Collections integration It’s a new week, which means it’s time for a new Edge build for users in the Dev channel. Today, Edge Dev build 93.0.933.1 is rolling out to users, bringing with it a few new features and the usual set of bug fixes. In addition to this build for desktop users, the firm is officially announcing that all Insider versions of Edge are now available for Android users, with the latest entrant being the Beta version, which has been out for a few weeks. The release of Canary, Dev, and Beta channels for Android comes as part of the effort to unify the browser’s codebase across platforms. The company recently also opened up TestFlight sign-ups for iOS users. With the release of the latest Insider builds for Android, the browser version across devices will now be identical. However, there is no word on when the stable version based on the unified codebase will be released to all users. As for today’s build, the changes are minor as the teams head into the holiday weekend in the U.S. The most noteworthy change is that the Tag Groups feature is now being enabled by default, letting users select multiple tabs and group them without having to enable the feature via the hidden flags. Automatic tab grouping, however, still needs to be manually enabled. Additionally, users will be able to send entire groups to a Collection. Here is the complete list of fixes in today’s build: Enabled Tab Groups by default. Added the ability to add a Tab Group to a Collection and open the contents of a Collection in a Tab Group. Added a management policy to control which Internet Explorer Integration Cloud Site List to use. Note that updates to administrative templates and documentation may not have occurred yet. Enabled by default access to hand tracking data in Web XR scenarios. As usual, the release brings with it a bunch of fixes. Here’s are the fixes that improve the reliability of the browser: Fixed a crash when closing a tab. Fixed a crash when opening tabs. Fixed a crash when closing IE mode tabs. Fixed a crash on startup. Fixed a crash on Mac when using context menus in Collections. Fixed a crash when interacting with autofill popups. Fixed a crash when using the Find on Page bar. Fixed a crash when sending feedback. Fixed a crash when closing the Web Widget. Fixed a crash on Windows 7 when using PWAs. And here are the fixes that address changed behavior: Fixed an issue where the new tab page sometimes doesn’t load. Fixed an issue on Mac and Linux where Settings goes blank when searching for something. Fixed an issue where the Cookies and Site Data page in Settings is blank. Fixed an issue where passwords aren’t sorted properly in Settings. Fixed an issue where USB device permissions aren’t shown in the Site Information flyout. Fixed an issue where Collections don’t sync and are stuck in a “Syncing…” state. Fixed an issue where the Site Information dialog is too big. Fixed an issue where the Shopping flyout sometimes gets stuck and can’t be closed. Fixed an issue where the X to exit a fullscreen video sometimes doesn’t appear when it should. Fixed an issue where InPrivate is sometimes available when it shouldn’t be when using Family Safety. Fixed an issue where the button to exit Kids Mode doesn’t work. Fixed an issue where Price Comparison is triggered for trivial savings amounts. Fixed an issue where none of the UI is clickable in PWAs or websites installed as apps. Fixed an issue where the browser fails to close when clicking the Close button in the prompt to close all tabs when you close the browser if IE mode tabs are open. Fixed an issue where modal dialogs sometimes don’t display correctly when using IE mode tabs. Fixed an issue where devices running Windows 10 Pro for Workstations sometimes don’t get management policies applied correctly to them. Fixed an issue where improperly set management policies sometimes cause downloads to fail. There are a bunch of known issues that users running the Dev channel builds must be aware of. Here 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.

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. Lastly, the Redmond firm notes that there will not be a Dev channel build next week, likely due to the holidays. As is the case always, today’s build should be automatically downloaded and installed in the background. Alternatively, users can head into the About Microsoft Edge settings to force the browser to check for an update. This week's Edge Dev build enables Tab Groups by default, adds Collections integration
  6. How to get Windows 11 Dev builds if your PC does not meet minimum hardware criteria If you are eager to see what Microsoft cooked up with Windows 11, the Windows Insider program is a good place to get in on the action and see Microsoft build the OS in real-time. You may have a problem if your PC does not meet minimum criteria, however, and this may be particularly true if you want to install the in-development OS on your old laptop or in a virtual machine. Fortunately, Microsoft is making an exception for long-term Windows 10 Insiders, who will be allowed to install the Dev version of the OS on non-compliant hardware. You however need to have been part of the program before the 24th June, meaning it is too late to jump on that bandwagon now. Even with non-compliant hardware, you can still join the Insider programme, but you will be shoved into the Release Preview channel, which will likely get very few builds. There is however a simple hack (of course completely at your own risk) that will get you around this restriction, simply by making a few registry edits. Note: This is only needed if you are a new Insider and want to join the Insider Dev channel with old hardware. First, join the Insider program and select Release Preview ring, which should be your only option. Reboot, then open your Registry Editor. Then navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ WindowsSelfHost \ UI \ Selection Change the text in the UIBranch key to Dev Change the text in the ContentType key to Mainline Change the text in the Ring key to External Then navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ WindowsSelfHost \ Applicability Change the text in the BranchName key to Dev Change the text in the ContentType key to Mainline Change the text in the Ring key to External Exit the registry editor, reboot and you should find yourself in the Dev ring, and be ready to receive the first Insider builds of Windows 11 early next week. Let us know how you get on in the comments below. via HTNovo How to get Windows 11 Dev builds if your PC does not meet minimum hardware criteria
  7. Tab Groups now enabled by default in Edge Dev builds After years of development, Microsoft is finally preparing to bring Tab Groups to Edge users. The feature has been available behind flags on Edge for a while, but the company is finally enabling the feature by default in Edge Canary and Edge Dev, suggesting it should reach the stable builds in a few weeks. Tab Groups is likely the best browser UI innovation in the last few years, allowing you to group related sites together under a single labelled tab, which can then be collapsed to save space in your browser tab row. On Edge, the feature is supported for both vertical and horizontal tabs. Try it out now in the Dev and Canary builds by right-clicking on a tab and selecting Add to Group. via Techdows Tab Groups now enabled by default in Edge Dev builds
  8. Latest Edge Dev build adds dark mode for form controls, new Kids Mode themes, and more Microsoft has released this week’s Edge Dev build, bumping the version to 93.0.926.0. The release comes a day later than the usual Tuesday timeline and brings with it a few new features, including the “much requested” dark mode support for HTML form controls. The firm detailed the feature in a separate blog post last week and said that that it worked with Google to improve support for automatic theme switching for forms. Developers can choose to restrict dark mode to certain form controls alone – such as just the dropdown box –, as well. The feature will also make it to Chrome on Android starting with version 91, and eventually to Edge on Android as well. There is also a new Efficiency Mode feature that is rolling out to users, which the firm is currently tight-lipped about. While the first-load screen after the update will mention the feature, the company says that it will provide more details “soon”. Other newly added features include a keyboard shortcut for switching between vertical and horizontal tabs, new Kids Mode themes, and more. Here is the complete list of features added with this build: Enabled by default the ability to import passwords from a CSV file. Enabled by default the ability to change the font in Immersive Reader. Enabled Kids Mode by default. Added more themes in Kids Mode. Added a keyboard shortcut for toggling between vertical and horizontal tabs layouts. Added a message on the update Settings page to warn when the browser can’t be restarted to install an update because another user on the device has it open. Added a confirmation the first time F12 is pressed that allows users to disable it as an entry point for the Dev Tools. Note that it can be re-enabled or disabled at any time in Settings. Enabled support for management policies from Chromium to control if Insecure Private Network Requests are Allowed, Chromium to control the list of what Insecure Private Network Requests are Allowed For which Urls, and to control if Triple DES is Enabled, which allows/disallows the use of 3DES cipher suites in TLS. As usual, the build comes with a bunch of bug fixes and reliability improvements. These include reliability improvements that fix random crashes and installation issues. Here’s the list of fixes that have been made to address reliability issues: Fixed a crash on launch. Fixed a crash on shutdown. Fixed an issue where certain webpages crash with a STATUS_BREAKPOINT error. Fixed a hang when opening new tabs or windows. Fixed a crash when sending feedback. Fixed a crash when navigating using certain protocols in IE mode tabs. Fixed an issue where one installation of the browser can sometimes cause another on the same machine to be unable to update. Fixed an issue where the Web Widget is sometimes blank or doesn’t load. There are also fixes to problems that cause unexpected behavior, such as visual glitches in PWAs, Web Capture tool anomalies. Here is the complete list of what’s improved: Increased the number of PDFs that can be open at once. Fixed an issue where middle-clicking on a folder inside a folder on the favorites bar doesn’t open all of the favorites in that sub-folder in new tabs. Fixed an issue where shortcuts to PWAs are sometimes broken after the browser is updated. Fixed an issue where a sign-in prompt repeatedly appears when opening certain PDFs, and then keeps reappearing, even after the PDF is closed. Fixed an issue where Guided Switch preferences sometimes can’t be edited or deleted. Fixed an issue where dragged vertical tabs don’t follow the mouse cursor properly. Fixed an issue where extensions that were hidden unexpectedly become visible. Fixed an issue where the --start-minimized command line flag doesn’t work. Fixed an issue where Office file downloads sometimes fail. Fixed an issue where Office documents can’t be opened in Kids mode. Fixed an issue where printing multiple pages per sheet sometimes rotates the page unexpectedly. Fixed an issue where the Web Capture toolbar sometimes stays onscreen unexpectedly. Fixed an issue where the browser profile picture sometimes isn’t shown in places it should be. Fixed a visual glitch with extensions in PWAs. Fixed an issue where app info for PWAs or websites installed as apps sometimes is incorrect or gone. Fixed an issue where prices aren’t visible on Collections items that come from shopping sites. Fixed an issue where multiple files can’t be downloaded from a single website while in IE mode. Deprecated the management policy to control if Legacy Same Site Cookie Behavior is Enabled. Obsoleted the management policy to control how the New Tab Page Set the Feed Type. Lastly, as with every release, the firm has detailed the known issues that users should be aware of. Some of these issues, such as the one with Microsoft Editor, have been present for a while. There are a couple of bugs that are caused by specific security software. Here are all the known issues in 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. Today’s update has just begun rolling out to users, so it could be a while till the release propagates to all systems. When it is available, it should be automatically downloaded and installed by the browser. Alternatively, you can force check for updates through the About Microsoft Edge settings page. Latest Edge Dev build adds dark mode for form controls, new Kids Mode themes, and more
  9. 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.

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
  10. 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.

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
  11. Microsoft Edge gets the ability to generate unique passwords for the users Microsoft has added another highly requested feature that should help users when creating a new account on any website. With the latest Edge updates, users can now take the browser's help to generate strong and unique passwords for different websites, as spotted by Techdows. The feature is currently limited to Edge Canary and Dev builds, but if you are using one of those then you can just visit a website and click on create a new account to try the feature out for yourself. Once you have entered all the information and selected the Edge's suggested password, the browser will add your credentials to the saved password list so you don't have to remember it. If you're already using a password manager or don't want password recommendations from Microsoft Edge then you can follow the steps below to disable the feature: Open Microsoft Edge and click on the ellipsis icon (...) on the top right corner of the browser. Navigate to Settings > Profiles > Passwords. Find the "Suggest strong passwords” setting and turn off the toggle to disable the feature. You can always go back to the passwords menu if you want to enable the feature again in the future. Microsoft Edge Canary and Dev are currently on version 87 which is expected to roll out to Beta users in the near future. Edge Stable users, on the other hand, recently received version 85 and will have to wait for the next update to try out the new features. Microsoft Edge gets the ability to generate unique passwords for the users
  12. Microsoft details a couple of inking improvements made to Edge Dev and Canary builds Microsoft has announced a few new improvements coming to the inking experience on Microsoft Edge. The firm says that it has been working on enhancing the experience of using a stylus on PDFs and other areas, based on user feedback and that it aims to address issues with using not just the pen but the combination of pen and touch. The first of the improvements being made currently to the Dev and Canary channel builds is to ink strokes. The company says that it has received feedback that inking on PDF documents feels jittery and is not smooth, which is why it is adopting “the latest of Microsoft inking library on web” to enhance the experience. Another issue that the Redmond firm is addressing is the inadvertent inking using touch, even when using a digital stylus. While the company recently added a feature that automatically disables inking with touch when the browser detects a digital pen – helping users scroll easily with a finger –, the company is giving users more manual control with the addition of a button to completely disable inking with touch. This UI element shows up on PDFs and web captures and acts as a manual override to prevent accidental inking, further improving the inking experience. The company urges Insiders to try out these features in the builds from the Dev and Canary channels and provide feedback. Considering that these are small yet nifty improvements, it shouldn’t be long before these features make it to the Beta and Stable channels of the browser. Microsoft details a couple of inking improvements made to Edge Dev and Canary builds
  13. Microsoft is back to its regular schedule with Edge Dev builds, after a late release last week, and today's update brings the browser version up to number 80.0.334.2. As with most builds based on Chromium 80 so far, this one is light on new additions, and it mostly brings fixes and smaller improvements to the experience. It also still doesn't include support for ARM64, which debuted in the Canary channel last week. With that being said, there are a couple of new features, which include a setting to force tracking prevention to be set to Strict when the user is browsing in an InPrivate window: Added a right-click option to sort individual favorites folders by name from the Favorites management page. Added a new setting to always use Strict Tracking Prevention inside InPrivate windows. Aside from those additions, this release is all about fixes, and there's a lot of them. As usual, the list is split into fixes for reliability and for behavior. Here's what's new for reliability: Fixed a crash on launch. Fixed an issue where searching from the address bar sometimes crashes the browser. Fixed a SmartScreen crash when downloading certain items. Fixed an issue where selecting context menu items on certain favorites entries causes a browser crash. Fixed an issue where renaming a Collection sometimes crashes the Collections pane. Fixed an issue where Application Guard windows sometimes crash upon startup. Fixed an issue where navigation fails in Application Guard windows. Fixed an issue where closing tabs that contain websites that are blocked by SmartScreen sometimes causes a browser crash. Fixed an issue where deleted or edited favorites aren’t synced properly, causing the edit to be undone when it syncs back down. Fixed an issue where syncing gets stuck in the “Setting up sync” state on browser startup. Fixed an issue where processes that grow too large and stop working aren’t automatically fixed. Fixed an issue where sync sometimes fails after restoring tabs after a browser crash. Fixed an issue where large Collections aren’t properly exported to Word. Fixed an issue where exporting a Collection to Excel sometimes fails. Reduced the number of times a user needs to sign out and sign back into the browser in order to fix sync. There are also a number of behavior changes and fixes, including a change that will prevent macOS users from exporting Collections to Word or Excel. Here's the full list: Temporarily disabled the ability to export Collections to Word and Excel on Mac. Temporarily disabled one form of DRM support on ARM64, which may impact the ability to play certain DRM-protected videos. Fixed an issue where windows that are minimized when the browser is restarted aren’t restored properly. Fixed an issue where Netflix playback fails with error D7356. Fixed an issue where the space bar doesn’t work when typing in the address bar. Fixed an issue where the enter key doesn’t work when typing in the address bar. Fixed an issue where the Windows Hello prompt to log into a website with the user’s OS credentials sometimes shows in an infinite loop. Fixed an issue for users of work and school accounts where websites that try and fail to use the browser profile’s credentials to log in don’t subsequently allow the user to fall back and try the user’s OS credentials. Improved the way Collections export images to Word documents. Fixed an issue where items sometimes fail to be added to Collections. Fixed an issue where webpage contents sometimes render all black if Collections is enabled. Fixed an issue where adding certain images to Collections results in a card with a broken image. Fixed an issue where PWAs installed for one user on a machine sometimes can’t be launched by other users on the machine. Fixed an issue on Mac where feedback screenshots can’t be included when submitting feedback. Fixed an issue where link context menus don’t show all the options if they’re opened via the keyboard instead of the mouse. Fixed an issue where some websites that are pinned to the Task Bar launch new tabs instead of activating existing tabs when tabs with those websites already exist. Fixed an issue where open tabs aren’t properly imported from Chrome. Fixed an issue where the wrong icon appears on web notifications. Recently, Microsoft has started including a list of known issues with its release notes, and there's a few in this release, despite the lengthy lists of fixes. Here's what you need to be aware of: There are some issues where users with multiple audio output devices sometimes don’t get any sound from Edge. In one case, Edge becomes muted in the Windows Volume Mixer and unmuting it fixes it. In another, restarting the browser fixes it. At certain zoom levels, there is a noticeable line between the browser UI and the web contents. Last month, some users got a “Work” account automatically added to the browser that wasn’t removable. Although we recently enabled the ability for some users to remove this account, there’s still an issue where users who are signed into Windows with a work or school account may not be able to remove that account from the browser. Clicking a link on one virtual desktop currently opens a new tab in a window on a different virtual desktop if there’s no window open on the current desktop but there is on another. This is a regression from past behavior, which opened a new window on the current desktop. Jumplist entries are not consistent between the Start Menu and the Task Bar for some users. We believe this is due to the shortcut on the Start Menu not getting migrated properly after an Edge update and are working on a fix. Additionally, after getting the update for the new icon, there are still places on the Start Menu, for example when searching, that still show the old icon. Other places like the Task Bar may be able to be fixed by un-pinning and then re-pinning any Edge shortcuts that already exist there. Sometimes the browser will appear to not respond to any user input (clicking or scrolling in webpages doesn’t do anything, hovering over UI doesn’t make it change), but clicking on certain buttons still works (like the … menu). The cause of this is due to an error in the GPU process, and opening the browser task manager (right-click near the window minimize/maximize/close buttons or hit shift+esc on the keyboard) will open a window that will allow you to end the GPU process, which will fix the issue. This issue was inherited from upstream Chromium, and a fix for it just went in upstream, so the next Dev update should have it. The latest build should now be showing up if you check for updates from within Edge Dev, and these improvements should help make the Beta channel more stable when the update makes its way there. That should happen shortly before the current Beta release is promoted to the stable channel on January 15, marking the official launch of the new Chromium-based Edge.

  14. Microsoft releases Edge Dev build 90.0.803.0 with minor improvements It's that time of the week again, as there's a new build of Microsoft's Edge browser out in the Dev channel. The one announced today is build 90.0.803.0. As usual, there's not a whole lot that's new, and it's all about some minor new features. We actually got the first Edge 90 build three weeks ago, so that puts us at just a few weeks away from it being released to the Beta channel (that's set for the week of March 16). The company improved latency when inking on PDFs, added Single Sign-On for Mac, and there are a few other things that are new. As for this build though, here's the list of new features: Added the ability to customize keyboard shortcuts in the F12 Dev Tools. Added support for showing the friendly name of a certificate when viewing its details in the Windows certificate viewer. Enabled the redesigned, smaller context menus for PDFs by default. Enabled support for the management policy to control Print Rasterization Mode from Chromium. And of course, there are fixes and known issues. Here's what got fixed for improved reliability: Fixed a crash on launch. Fixed a crash when closing a tab. Fixed a crash when Sharing something. Fixed a crash when typing into the address bar. Fixed a crash when using speech recognition on Google websites. Fixed an issue where using the Web Widget in Guest windows sometimes crashes the browser. Fixed an issue where tabs sometimes are blank or frozen after being left alone for a while. Fixed an issue where printing sometimes fails with a message that it “can’t calculate”. Here's what got fixed for changed behavior: Fixed an issue where filtering cookies on edge://settings/siteData fails. Fixed an issue where Edge tabs sometimes don’t appear in the Windows Alt+Tab list when expected. Fixed an issue where attempting to Modify Edge’s installation from Windows’ list of installed programs does nothing. Fixed an issue where opening Edge via a Taskbar shortcut sometimes results in a window that isn’t associated with that shortcut. Fixed an issue where searching to type in the History or Favorites flyout sometimes stops working while typing. Fixed an issue where opening an Edge window by clicking on a website’s notification results in the window not being associated with existing Taskbar shortcuts. Fixed an issue where newly-installed PWA or websites sometimes get pinned to the Start menu or Taskbar unexpectedly. Fixed an issue where Single Sign-On doesn’t work for some work/school users. Fixed an issue where pasting into a text note in Collections sometimes fails. Fixed an issue where dropdowns on webpages sometimes prevent users from interacting with other items on the page. Fixed an issue where interactions with the Password Monitor popup don’t work. Fixed an issue where the wrong context menu sometimes appears in the Collections flyout. Fixed an issue where entering fullscreen turns off vertical tabs after exiting fullscreen. Fixed an issue where search suggestions sometimes don’t appear in the Web Widget. Fixed an issue where the Web Widget sometimes goes blank or black, but links can still be clicked. Fixed an issue where Password Monitor scans never appear to finish. Fixed an issue where the management policy to configure Restore On Start Up URLs sometimes doesn’t work properly when configured as “recommended”. Removed the ability to pin a website to the Taskbar from the edge://apps context menu. Finally, here's the 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 https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/articles/known-issue-adblock-causing-errors-on-youtube/m-p/14... 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 favorites get duplicated after we made some previous fixes in that area. The most common way this is triggered is by installing the Stable channel of Edge and then signing into it with an account that has already signed into Edge before. This issue should be reduced now that automatic deduplication has been introduced into Insider channels. However, 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 while we wait for the automatic deduplication to make it to Stable, 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, you can manually update your browser by going to Settings -> About Microsoft Edge. If you don't, your browser will be updated in the background at some point.

  15. Microsoft Edge Dev build 90.0.796.0 is out with more improvements Today, Microsoft is releasing this week's Edge Dev build, bringing the version number to 90.0.796.0. There's not a whole lot that's new this time around. You'll now find that you can start typing to search as soon as favorites and history menus are loaded. Also, you're going to start seeing suggestions from your local history (not your synced history) when you click on the address bar. Single Sign-On is now enabled on the Mac, fixing issues with some websites. Here's the full list of new features: Added the ability to start typing to search as soon as the favorites and history menus are open and loaded. Added suggestions from local browsing history when clicking on the empty address bar on the new tab page. Added support for Friendly Names for certificates in the certificate picker. Enabled Single Sign-On for Mac, fixing an issue where certain websites can’t login. Improved messaging when certain permissions are restricted when viewing a protected PDF. Deprecated the management policy to Enable Native Window Occlusion in favor of the newly-added policy to Enable Window Occlusion. Note that updates to administrative templates or documentation may not have occurred yet. Enabled support for the management policy to control SSL Error Override Allowed For Origins from upstream Chromium. And of course, there are fixes and known issues. Here are the fixes for improved reliability: Fixed a crash when closing the browser. Fixed a crash when showing the autofill suggestion popup. Fixed a crash when using Guided Switch. Fixed a crash for Family Safety users. Fixed a crash when using speech recognition. Fixed a crash when copying something when Data Loss Prevention is enabled. Fixed an issue where the browser uses lots of CPU doing nothing. Fixed an issue where Smart Copy doesn’t work one websites like OneNote. Here are the fixes for changed behavior: Fixed an issue where deleted passwords are sometimes restored unexpectedly via sync. Fixed an issue where graphics in certain websites like Excel get corrupted over time. Fixed an issue where print preview sometimes shows the incorrect number of sheets of paper. Fixed an issue with printing multiple sheets per page. Fixed an issue where PDFs created by printing a page using Print To PDF don’t appear in the Downloads list. Fixed an issue where the Sign In To Sync button in Settings isn’t disabled when sign in or sync are turned off via management policy. Fixed an issue where dropdown lists on webpages sometimes are missing options or data. Fixed an issue when dragging a URL from the address bar into a Collection. Fixed an issue with syncing Collections. Fixed an issue where pinning a PWA or website installed as an app to the Taskbar also unexpectedly prompts to pin it to the Start Menu. Fixed an issue where opening a link that’s expected to open in a PWA or website installed as an app doesn’t open the exact link but instead just navigates to the website’s homepage. Fixed an issue where removing a PWA or website installed as an app doesn’t remove its entry from the Start Menu. Fixed an issue where PWAs or websites installed as apps that open child windows don’t get those child windows associated with the main app window, but instead as generic Edge windows. Fixed an issue where price comparison in the Shopping popup isn’t appearing when it should. Removed autofill capabilities from Application Guard windows. Finally, here are the 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 https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/articles/known-issue-adblock-causing-errors-on-youtube/m-p/14... 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 favorites get duplicated after we made some previous fixes in that area. The most common way this is triggered is by installing the Stable channel of Edge and then signing into it with an account that has already signed into Edge before. This issue should be reduced now that automatic deduplication has been introduced into Insider channels. However, 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 while we wait for the automatic deduplication to make it to Stable, 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. Microsoft also shouted out some other Edge news that it released recently, such as adaptive notifications, which is supposed to be an improvement on quiet notifications. It also introduced Kids Mode, which is coming to the Canary channel today, and it's not in this Dev build. As always, you can install it manually by going to Settings -> About Microsoft Edge. If not, the browser will update in the background at some point. Microsoft Edge Dev build 90.0.796.0 is out with more improvements
