In terms of new features, the biggest news might be that Edge now supports themes installed from the Chrome web store. While Edge has always supported Chrome extensions, themes are a little more complicated, but now it's possible to change the look of Edge beyond the Windows theming options. Here's the full list of new features:
Quote:
  • Added the ability to install themes from the Google web store.
  • Added a flag to that will allow the Backspace key to navigate a webpage back (or forward when combined with Shift). This flag is currently disabled by default and needs to be manually enabled.
  • Added an option in settings to turn off suggestions from history and favorites when searching in the address bar.
  • Added website permissions for virtual and augmented reality.
  • Added a link between the Passwords Settings page and the Password Monitor Settings page.
  • Added a management policy to Save Cookies When Microsoft Edge Closes. Note that this policy is intended to be used in conjunction with policies to clear data when the browser is closed, and administrative templates will be updated later.
As usual, in addition to a handful of new features, this week's build also includes smaller improvements to reliability. Here's what's been fixed:
Quote:
  • Fixed an issue where typing into the address bar sometimes crashes the browser.
  • Fixed an issue where closing a tab sometimes crashes the browser.
  • Fixed an issue where switching tabs sometimes crashes Edge on Insider versions of Windows.
  • Fixed an issue where visiting certain sites in IE mode tabs sometimes crashes the browser.
  • Fixed an issue where tabs sometimes crash upon loading.
  • Fixed an issue where logging into a site with a password saved in Edge sometimes crashes the tab.
  • Fixed an issue where using System Restore causes Edge to no longer be able to launch.
  • Fixed an issue where pinning a website to the Taskbar sometimes fails.
  • Fixed an issue where the certificate viewer doesn’t work.
