Microsoft Edge 107.0.1418.24 stable is now available for all supported platforms. The release comes quickly after Chrome 107. The latter includes the ability to import and export password from a file. On Microsoft's side, the additions to the browser include a number of group policies, and an updated sidebar.
The Sidebar in Edge is one of its recent features that Microsoft is actively working on. It includes several shortcuts to apps like Outlook and Office, etc. There are also little tools for daily use like Calculator, Unit converter, Internet Speed Test, and more. More to come in the near future. Here are the updates it received in version 107.
- Microsoft Edge sidebar. The Microsoft Edge sidebar lets users access productivity tools side-by-side with their browsing window. For enterprise customers, the following experiences are currently turned on by default: Search, Discover, Office.com, and Outlook. Administrators can control the availability and configure the Microsoft Edge sidebar using the HubsSidebarEnabled, ExtensionInstallBlockList, and ExtensionInstallForceList policies. The extension ID for each sidebar app can be found at edge://sidebar-internals. For more information, see Manage the sidebar in Microsoft Edge.
- New policy to give more flexibility in Microsoft Edge startup. The RestoreOnStartupUserURLsEnabled policy lets users add and remove their own URLs to open when starting Microsoft Edge while maintaining the mandatory list of sites specified by the admin.
Existing users can open browser's menu and select Help > About Microsoft Edge to make it check for updates and install the latest version. Otherwise, you can download it manually from the official website.
