Microsoft Edge Dev 100.0.1185.7 is out with Xbox Clarity Boost enabled by default

Microsoft just released Edge 100.0.1185.7 to Insiders in the Dev channel. The Redmond firm is about to push it to the Beta channel, and subsequently update the Dev channel with version 101. The release changes defaults for Clarity Boost in Xbox Cloud Gaming, auto-signing behavior, and brings a few more group policies. Finally, there are some fixes, one of which reduces the number of extensions that block Startup Boost.


Additionally, Microsoft advertises F12 Dev Tools feedback entry point on GitHub. The latter will allow users to share their ideas, feedback, suggestions, tips, and more by opening an issue.

Back to today's build, Edge Dev 100.0.1185.7 comes with the following changes.
