Today marks the second weekly release for the new Microsoft Edge's Dev channel, and there are a whole lot of bug fixes to pick up. In addition to the bug fixes, however, today's release packs support for installing from Edge Insider channels on 32-bit Windows 10 devices and more natural voices for the "Read Aloud" feature.
Here's a look at all of what's new:
- Microsoft Edge Insider Channels will now install to Windows 10 32-bit devices. Just visit www.microsoftedgeinsider.com from your device and follow the usual installation steps.
- The animated spinner that displays on the About page when checking for updates is no longer scaled improperly
- After importing favorites from Internet Explorer, the favorites bar folder will be properly named "Favorites bar" instead of "Links"
- A confirmation prompt will now appear when deleting multiple history items
- The "Show in folder" option will now work when a download is in the middle of virus scanning
- Fixed a crash on pressing CTRL+SHIFT+M in inPrivate mode
- Fixed a poorly rendered animation when viewing "See all cookies and site data" under site permissions
- Fixed a bug where Microsoft Account credentials were not inherited from Windows 10 until after the first launch
Today's update brings the Dev channel up to version 188.8.131.52. If you want to give the new Chromium-based browser a shot, you can download the Dev channel from the Edge Insider site. For a more frequent pace, you can also opt for the Canary Channel, which gets updates every day. Microsoft also plans to launch a beta channel in the future, which will receive updates every six weeks.
