What you need to know

  • Microsoft just released a new build of Edge Dev.
  • It's the first build of Edge Dev based on version 95 of Chromium
  • The build adds the option to use keyboard keys to ink on PDFs and web captures.

Microsoft Edge Dev just received its first build based on version 95 of Chromium. The update brings the option to use keyboard keys to ink PDFs and web captures. It also enables the ability to sync payment card data by default. As is usually the case, the build also includes a number of improvements, fixes, and changed behaviors.

Here's everything that's new in Edge Dev build 95.0.997.1 (opens in new tab):

  • Added the ability to use the keyboard keys to ink on PDFs and web captures.
  • Enabled by default the ability to sync payment cards by uploading payment card data filled in webpages to a Microsoft account.

Here are the ways that the build improves the reliability of the browser:

  • Fixed an issue where interacting with autofill popups sometimes crashes the browser.
  • Fixed a crash when dragging tabs between windows.
  • Fixed a tab crash.
  • Fixed a crash when closing tabs that contain Office documents.
  • Fixed a crash when editing saved passwords in Settings.
  • Fixed a crash on Mac when the management policy to Force Sign In is provisioned.
  • Mobile issues:
  • Fixed a crash when organizing favorites.
  • Fixed a crash when deleting a favorite.
  • Fixed a crash on launch.
  • Fixed a crash when signing out of the browser.
  • Fixed an issue where the browser fails to open.
  • Fixed a hang when navigating to malicious sites that are blocked by SmartScreen.
  • Fixed an issue where WebView2 apps sometimes crash soon after launching (Issue 1678).

Since Edge Dev is now on version 95, version 94 should make its way to Edge Beta soon.
