Microsoft has restored overlay scroll bars in Edge, so today we will learn how to enable this feature. One of the main downsides of the build-in dark theme in Microsoft Edge is scrollbars. No matter which mode you use, they are always bright white and take quite a lot of space on the screen. Months ago, Microsoft tried to solve that problem with redesigned scroll bars, but the company had to remove corresponding flags from Edge. Microsoft Edge users will be glad to learn that developers are bringing overlay scroll bars back to the Edge browser.
Microsoft today released the last Edge 94 build in the Dev channel. Version 94.0.992.1 comes with a few new features, and includes various fixes and improvements. The next Edge build based on Chromium 94 will be released in the Beta channel. The Dev channel will be then updated with builds based on version 95.
A couple of months ago, Microsoft updated the roadmap for Edge, providing more information about the upcoming changes and new features. According to Microsoft, Edge 94 is on track to receive a significant update for the built-in PDF Viewer. One of the biggest changes coming soon is the free-form text boxes support. Microsoft is now rolling out the feature for a limited set of Edge Insiders in the Canary Channel. It is a part of Controlled Feature Rollout, which means not all users are getting access to new capabilities right away, but Microsoft will increase the testing scope once Edge 94 gets closer to the public release.
In Microsoft Edge Dev and Canary builds, Microsoft has begun testing ink enhancements that the company claims reduced latency by 240%.

Since Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome use the same rendering engine, the two browsers share many features. Still, some capabilities arrive in Microsoft Edge much later compared to Google Chrome. Tab Search is one of such features. Stable versions of Chrome offer the tab search button for quite a long time now, while Microsoft continues experimenting with that for almost a year. In the latest update to Edge Canary, Microsoft added a new button to invoke tab search in the browser.
The latest update for Microsoft Edge Canary brings an improved Immersive Reader with more customization options. In version 94.0.981.0, users can adjust text width in Immersive Reader and switch between narrow, medium, and wide column sizes.
