Microsoft Edge

Highlights:

  • Microsoft Edge has an update available that brings the browser to version 98.0.1108.43.
  • The update adds a browsing mode to Edge that prioritizes security.
  • People can now customize their multi-profile browsing experience within Microsoft Edge.

Back in 2015, Microsoft was announcing a new browse engine: Microsoft Edge. But, back then, Edge simply couldn’t manage to draw the attention of the masses, which made Microsoft rebuild it on Chromium, Google’s free and open-source project. Fast-forward to today, Edge browser now shares many similarities with Google Chrome and has several enhancements over its predecessor.

Tech giant Microsoft has just released version 98.0.1108.43 of its Edge browser that brings a host of new features, including a new browsing mode that prioritizes security. The company said that this is a browsing mode in Microsoft Edge where browser security takes priority, giving users an extra layer of protection when browsing the web. Users can personalize their multi-profile experience with the ability to create a customized list of sites for automatic profile switching in Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft Edge also allows you to manage your browsing data history if you don’t want everybody to be able to see which sites and pages you’ve visited and why. The browsing engine allows you to clear your browsing history, either manually or automatically, each time you close your browser.

Here are the feature updates in Edge 98.0.11.08.43 as outlined by Microsoft:

  • Enhance your security on the web. This is a browsing mode in Microsoft Edge where browser security takes priority, giving users an extra layer of protection when browsing the web. Administrators can apply group policies to end-user desktops (Windows, macOS, and Linux) to help protect against in-the-wild exploits (also referred to 0-days). The following group policies support this browsing mode:
  • EnhanceSecurityMode
  • EnhanceSecurityModeBypassListDomains
  • EnhanceSecurityModeEnforceListDomains
  • Personalize multi-profile experiences with profile preferences for sites. Users can personalize their multi-profile experience with the ability to create a customized list of sites for automatic profile switching in Microsoft Edge.
  • Upcoming three-digit version number in user agent string. Starting with version 100, Microsoft Edge will send a three-digit version number in the User-Agent header, for example “Edg/100”. Starting with Microsoft Edge 97, site owners can test this upcoming user agent string by enabling the #force-major-version-to-100 experiment flag in edge://flags to ensure their User-Agent parsing logic is robust and works as expected.
  • Deprecate WebRTC’s Plan B SDP semantics. This change deprecates a legacy Session Description Protocol (SDP) dialect called Plan B. This SDP format is being replaced by the Unified Plan, which is a spec-compliant and cross-browser compatible SDP format.
