Microsoft recently released Edge Dev build 94.0.992.1. It is the last major build of Edge Dev based on version 94 of Chromium, so apart from a few possible patches, Edge Dev is almost ready to jump to the next major version. The latest build includes a new feature for progressive web apps and new APIs that improve web browsing.

Here are all the added new features in the latest build of Edge Dev:

  • Added support for the Downloads popup in PWAs and websites installed as apps.
  • Added a setting to control if Microsoft Rewards points are shown on the browser’s profile UI.
  • Added the ability to open local HTML files on iOS.
  • Added an API to WebView2 for launching the Browser Task Manager.
  • Added an API to WebView2 to listen for browser exits.
  • Added a management policy to control if the setting for Web RTC to Respect the OS Routing Table is Enabled.
  • Note that updates to administrative templates or documentation may not be live yet.
  • Re-added URL suggestions to error pages that result from mis-typed web addresses.

As this is the final build of Edge Dev based on version 94 of Chromium, version 94 is expected to arrive in the Beta channel soon.
