Microsoft Edge Chromium (Dev Channel)

Edge Dev Icon 256

Microsoft is releasing Microsoft Edge Chromium version to users in the Dev Channel. The Dev channel is supposed to get updates weekly. The released build comes with a couple of new features, along with a huge number of fixes.

Changes made to Microsoft Edge Chromium

New features and functionality

  • Microsoft Edge Insider Channels will now install to Windows 10 32-bit devices. Just visit from your device and follow the usual installation steps.
  • More natural sounding voices are now available for the Read Aloud feature, and exposed via the JavaScript Speech Synthesis API


Bug fixes and improvements

  • The animated spinner that displays on the About page when checking for updates is no longer scaled improperly
  • After importing favorites from Internet Explorer, the favorites bar folder will be properly named “Favorites bar” instead of “Links”
  • A confirmation prompt will now appear when deleting multiple history items
  • The “Show in folder” option will now work when a download is in the middle of virus scanning
  • Fixed a crash on pressing CTRL+SHIFT+M in inPrivate mode
  • Fixed a poorly rendered animation when viewing “See all cookies and site data” under site permissions
  • Fixed a bug where Microsoft Account credentials were not inherited from Windows 10 until after the first launch

32-bit Windows version support is a long awaited change. While most of the modern computers run 64-bit Windows versions, there are a number of users who still run a 32-bit OS, both Windows 10 and Windows 7. It is quite possible that this update may bring Microsoft Edge Chromium to ARM devices via the x86 emulation feature.
