Microsoft Edge Dev only made the jump to version 90 a few weeks ago. Now, there's another version of the browser to download. The most recent update brings Edge Dev to version 90.0.803.0 and includes several new features.

  • Added the ability to customize keyboard shortcuts in the F12 Dev Tools.
  • Added support for showing the friendly name of a certificate when viewing its details in the Windows certificate viewer.
  • Enabled the redesigned, smaller context menus for PDFs by default.
  • Enabled support for the management policy to control Print Rasterization Mode from Chromium.

The update also includes several fixes:

  • Fixed a crash on launch.
  • Fixed a crash when closing a tab.
  • Fixed a crash when Sharing something.
  • Fixed a crash when typing into the address bar.
  • Fixed a crash when using speech recognition on Google websites.
  • Fixed an issue where using the Web Widget in Guest windows sometimes crashes the browser.
  • Fixed an issue where tabs sometimes are blank or frozen after being left alone for a while.
  • Fixed an issue where printing sometimes fails with a message that it "can't calculate".

The build started rolling out yesterday, so you should see it by now. If you aren't on the Dev channel for Microsoft Edge yet, you can grab it from the link below.
