- Microsoft Edge Beta recently received an upgrade to version 92.

- Edge 92 brings improvements to vertical tabs, support for HTTPS automatic switching, and some new menu options.
Microsoft Edge version 92 recently started rolling out through the Beta channel. We're still waiting for the official changelog, but we know several of the changes and improvements that roll out with the update since Edge version 92 has already been available through Edge Dev and Edge Canary. Neowin spotted the new build rolling out for Edge Beta and breaks down some of its features.
Vertical tabs get some noteworthy improvements in the latest build, including the option to turn the feature off across all open windows. You can also choose to hide the title bar when using vertical tabs, which frees up a bit more screen real estate.
The latest version of Edge Beta is also more secure because it automatically switches to an HTTPS connection on websites that support it. HTTPS support is hidden behind a flag at the moment. Our news editor further explains the benefits of HTTPS in his post highlighting the feature:
There are also changes to pinning the HIstory and Downloads menus, new features for Immersive Reader, and improvements to progressive web apps.
Once the changelog is available, you can check it out on Microsoft's website (opens in new tab).

Looking forward to this update. I dont use vertical tabs right now because IMO they dont really offer any benefits and just give me less screen real estate to see my content.
The huge gaping desert of a title bar is a waste of screen space.
wat? you can hide the title bar when using vertical tabs
You can hide the title bar when using vertical tabs.
I'd like to be able to set pinned bookmarks on the right side as a setting rather than something I have to do everytime I launch the browser, and be able to resize that pane. With widescreen, using vertical tabs and pinned bookmarks seems to work nicely.
You can keep it pinned permanently now.
How? Every restart the pin has to be redone. Also, any way to adjust the panel size?
