What you need to know

  • The update adds an option to make text columns wider in Immersive Reader.
  • The Edge Settings page now has a section for accessibility.

Microsoft just rolled out an update to Edge Dev that brings the browser to version 94.0.982.2. The update adds a handful of features, including an option to have text columns be wider in Immersive Reader. The browser's Settings page also gains a section for accessibility with the update.

Here are the added features in Edge Dev build 94.0.982.2:

  • Added an option in Immersive Reader to make the columns of text wider.
  • Added a Settings page for Accessibility settings.
  • Added support for viewing favorites in Application Guard windows when Application Guard is in Standalone Mode.
  • Added a management policy to control if Only On Premises Implicit Signin is Enabled, which controls if only on-premises accounts are allowed to use implicit sign-in.
  • Added an entry to the Share popup on the context menu.
  • Enabled SSO on Linux.
  • Re-enabled tab sharing capabilities in WebView2 apps.

Microsoft also improved several areas of the browser:

  • Fixed a crash when using Collections.
  • Fixed an issue where adding all tabs to a Collection sometimes crashes the browser.
  • Fixed a crash on Mac when selecting tabs using the Touchbar.
  • Fixed a crash when closing the browser when a popup is open.
  • Fixed an issue where PWAs or websites installed as apps sometimes close spontaneously.
  • Fixed an issue where deleting a Collection sometimes causes the Collections pane to go blank.

As is normally the case, there are some known issues with this build that you can read about on a Tech Community page from Microsoft.
