Microsoft just announced the launch of the first Microsoft Edge Dev version 94 build. Coming in at version 94.0.972.0, Microsoft says that this build brings “lots of exciting things to share.” Here’s a look at everything that’s new, changed, and more.
First off, we start with added features. There are three major things this week. Microsoft added a second row of Top Sites on the New Tab page. In addition, Microsoft enabled the new Spellcheck experience on Mac. The other two changes include a new-sign in dialogue when signing into the browser, and support for full-page screenshots and InPrivate authentication via Face ID on iOS. There are even some new management policies, which we won’t get into here.
Since this is the first major version 94 build, don’t expect too many fixes and changed behaviors. The list is quite short this week, and we’ve included them all for you below.
- Fixed a crash on launch.
- Fixed an issue where PWAs or websites installed as apps sometimes crash after an OS upgrade.
- Fixed an issue on Mac where a webpage crash can sometimes also cause a browser crash.
- Fixed an issue where interacting with PDFs sometimes causes the browser to freeze or crash.
- Fixed a crash when playing videos.
- Fixed an issue where pinned tabs are sometimes duplicated after restoring the previous session.

We also remind you to check out the Beta channel of the Edge Insider program, too. Version 93 of Edge just hit that channel, with Tab Groups and a set of other new features.
