- There were changes made to the User-Agent header to include a three-digit version number as part of the launch of the new Edge
- Because of this, Edge:/flags or a custom policy may be used to “freeze” the User-version Agent’s number.
- The Edge 100 also has hardware security upgrades.
- New features in the Microsoft Edge browser enable users to access Microsoft Office programmes and cloud-based versions of the software in a more convenient way than ever before.
Recently, the stable versions of Google Chrome 100 and Microsoft Edge 100 web browsers were both made accessible to the general public with redesigned logos last week.
The User-Agent header was updated to include a three-digit version number along with the release of the new Edge.
According to the developers at Microsoft, who are concerned about this, inaccurate parsers may cause certain websites to show incorrectly. Therefore, leaving the opportunity for users to “freeze” the User-version Agent’s number using an option in edge:/flags or a custom policy.
Microsoft’s latest browser version may launch SharePoint and OneDrive applications straight from the Microsoft 365 Application Protocol activation service. Using the proper rules, you may specify which programmes and services should get startup warnings and which should not.
In addition, the Edge 100 adds hardware security enhancements to the stack. The programmers have addressed a number of memory corruption issues. Because Windows 8 had hardware stack protection, later versions of the software have used and built on that in the same way that the first version did.
An enhanced tool for evaluating PDF files from Outlook and File Explorer is also included in this release’s new features. Read-Only mode is supported, as is the ability to read attachments from Outlook as well as locally saved PDF files. Extra features include a unique policy that makes it easy to authenticate digitally signed PDF files in Edge without the need for additional software.
Microsoft is experimenting with methods to provide Edge users with immediate access to its apps and services. The Microsoft Office call button appeared in the Canary assembly as the next phase in this process. As an experimental solution, it’s possible that this feature will not make it into the final version of Microsoft Edge.
To make things even easier, Microsoft has included a new feature in the Edge browser that allows users to quickly access Microsoft Office programmes or cloud-based versions of the software.
The button is disabled by default, but you may enable it by selecting the Appearance tab in the browser’s preferences. If you want to do this, you’ll need the most recent experimental version of Edge and an address bar search for edge:/settings/appearance in order to do so.
