The latest Microsoft Edge Dev update is bringing some improvements to both the Edge favorites and history menus. Coming with build 90.0.796.0, here's a look at all the new features and everything else you need to know about this release.

First off, there are the added features. As we hinted, Microsoft added the ability to start typing to search as soon as the favorites and history menus are open and loaded. They've also added suggestions from local browsing history when clicking on the empty address bar on the new tab page. Other new features are below.

  • Enabled Single Sign-On for Mac, fixing an issue where certain websites can’t login.
    Improved messaging when certain permissions are restricted when viewing a protected PDF.
