New Microsoft Edge Dev Update Launches with Linux Goodies

Microsoft has recently released a new Dev update for Microsoft Edge, and this time the new build includes some changes for Linux too.

At this point, Linux is the only major desktop platform where Microsoft Edge is yet to get a stable version, but it’s believed Microsoft would ship it by the end of the year.

In the meantime, however, the company is working around the clock on polishing the experience on Linux, and Microsoft Edge Dev build 91.0.838.3 enables the sign-in and sync for personal Microsoft accounts by default when the browser is installed on Linux.

The feature was originally announced last week, and it’s now part of the latest Dev build for Linux.

In addition, the new Dev update comes with two new options for the PDF mini menu, namely search and define a word you highlight in a document, while users can now control whether they want the Sleep Tabs to appear faded in the browser too.

More changes for profile switching

There are also PWA improvements, as well as a new management policy in the browser.

“Added a notification to switch profiles when a website or PWA is installed in one browser profile and you try to install the same one again in another profile.  Note that this has been rolling out over the past few weeks, and is now enabled by default.
Added a management policy to control if Application Guard Traffic Identification is Enabled, which controls if Application Guard windows send extra headers to identify to web pages that they’re being showing in an Application Guard window.  Note that updates to documentation or administrative templates may not have occurred yet,” Microsoft explains.

The new Dev update is available on all desktop platforms where Microsoft Edge is currently up for grabs, including Windows, Linux, and Mac.
