Microsoft Edge Dev 76.0.159.0 released, here are the changes

Microsoft today released a new version of their Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser. The update hits the Dev channel with version 76.0.159.0.

The change log for Microsoft Edge Chromium 76.0.159.0 highlights the following updates:

New features and improvements:

  • Added a "Copy download link" option to the menu for a downloaded item
  • The context menu for a canceled download no longer shows a list of disabled items, and instead shows only "Copy download link"
  • Added a "Save as" option to the toolbar in the PDF viewer
  • The "Add to dictionary" context menu option for a misspelled word now has an icon
  • For quick links on the new tab page, if there is no site icon available we now show an icon created from the first letter of the site
  • Increased the size of some text on the user profile flyout for readability
  • When a tab is at minimum width and only shows the close button, that close button is now centered in the tab
  • In the Apps submenu, an option now reads "Install this site as an app" instead of showing a really long menu item name that contained the title of the current site
  • When using the keyboard to move through tabs, you can now press enter and not just space to switch tab

Note: Microsoft Edge Chromium Now Follows System Dark Theme

    Sergey,

    Microsoft removed PNACL support from Edge Chromium despite Google postponed transferring Google Apps to WebAssembly for years. See https://twitter.com/ericlaw/status/1120706947668426753

    As an experienced tweaker, can you suggest how a user can add PNACL plugin to Edge Chromium. The downloaded EXE contains the required NACL.zip archive, or PNACL files can be copied from Chrome, but need registration in edge://components .
