What you need to know

  • A fresh Microsoft Edge build is now available on the Dev channel.
  • The update brings the version number up to 76.0.182.6.
  • This release mostly includes bug fixes, but it also adds an indicator to the windows title for the number of additional tabs.

A new week means it's time for another new release in the Microsoft Edge Dev channel. This release is mostly about ironing out some of the lingering buds, but it does pack a new feature that displays the number of additional tabs present in the window title.

Here's a full look at what's new (opens in new tab):

  • Added the number of additional tabs present in the window title.
  • Fixed an issue where the + button to open new tabs is invisible.
  • Fixed an issue where corrupted characters appeared in certain parts of the UI like the address bar dropdown or the … menu.
  • Fixed an issue where clicking quickly on the X on entries on the history page would open them instead of deleting them.
  • Fixed an issue where clicking the "Remove All" button to remove all cookies doesn't do anything.
  • Fixed an issue where the order of user profiles differed between the user flyout and the list in Settings.
  • Fixed an issue where signing out of user profiles didn't work.
  • Fixed an issue where favorites sometimes don't sync to other machines.
  • Fixed an issue where the Read Aloud bar sometimes takes a long time to appear.
  • Fixed an issue where entries on the history or download pages overlap at narrow window widths.
  • Fixed an issue where switching between user profiles sometimes crashes the browser.
  • Fixed an issue where sending feedback from a webpage that had crashed sometimes crashes the whole browser.
  • Fixed an issue where the browser sometimes hangs when it's closed.
  • Updated to the latest version of Adobe Flash Player (32.0.0.207).

The latest update is available now for Edge Insiders on the Dev channel and pushes the version number up to 76.0.182.6. If you have yet to give the new version of Edge a shot, you can download and start testing it directly from the Edge Insider website. The Dev channel updates once a week, while the Canary channel is set to receive new builds daily. Microsoft is also planning to launch a Beta channel in the future, which will receive a new build every six weeks.

Affordable accessories that'll pair perfectly with your PC

Every one of these awesome PC accessories will enhance your everyday experience — and none cost more than $30.

KLIM Aim RGB gaming mouse (opens in new tab) ($30 at Amazon)

Whether you're a gamer or not, this is an absurdly good mouse for the price. It's ambidextrous, has a responsive sensor, a braided cable, tank-like build quality, and, yes, it has RGB lighting, though you can turn it off if that's not your thing.

AmazonBasics USB speakers (opens in new tab) ($16 at Amazon)

These neat little speakers may only pack 2.4W of total power, but don't let that fool you. For something so small you get a well-rounded sound and a stylish design. And they only cost $16.

Razer mouse bungee (opens in new tab) ($20 at Amazon)

Use a wired mouse? You need a mouse bungee to keep your cable tidy and free of snags. You get no drag on the cable, and this one has subtle styling, a rust-resistant spring and a weighted base, all for $20.

  • When will they add syncing of PWs? The only thing holding me back from moving the new Edge. Seems like a basic feature?
