Microsoft has released the latest version of its Chromium based web browser. The Edge 86 is packed with a host of new features, along with simple rafts of bug fixes and performance improvements.
This version of the browser sees several improvements to PDF management with the advent of secure DNS (DNS-over-HTTPS) support. Support documentation for table of contents helps with navigation, but pen support for highlighting and better scrolling is most welcome. Other improvements and additions to site testing in Internet Explorer mode.
An area of the browser that sees a significant change is the download section. Now, to make it easier to manage more download-related options without leaving the Edge, it is possible to delete downloaded files from the Download Manager. To take advantage of this option, visit the download shelf or download page, right-click and select the Delete File option from the context menu.
Managers have access to many of the new options and features in the Edge 86, including the ability to enable syncing by default for Azure Active Directory accounts. Administrators can now more easily return to a previous version of the Edge.
The ability to force the site to load in Internet Explorer mode for testing purposes is another handy option – admins, developers and end users will benefit.
In Edge 86, Microsoft made several pdf-related improvements. In addition to support for tables of contents to help facilitate navigation, support for PDFs on smaller-screened devices has also been improved. Other modifications include pen support for highlighter in PDF files and smooth file scrolling.
Users of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 can now enjoy the benefits of automatic profile switching, which until now was only available to Windows 10 users.
