We had earlier reported that Microsoft Edge version 101 reached the stable channel. It was quite minor but featured two new features, relating to Progressive Web Apps and browser profiles. And today, the browser has finally reached version 102, which is still significantly minor because there are no feature updates listed in the changelog.
Here are the details provided in the changelog:
- AllHttpAuthSchemesAllowedForOrigins – List of origins that allow all HTTP authentication
- OutlookHubMenuEnabled – Allow users to access the Outlook menu
- NetworkServiceSandboxEnabled – Enable the network service sandbox
- UserAgentClientHintsGREASEUpdateEnabled – Control the User-Agent Client Hints GREASE Update feature
Microsoft Edge 102 also comes with a couple of security fixes, therefore, it is important for users to make this update. Here are the fixes:
- CVE-2022-30128 – Chromium-based elevation of privilege
- CVE-2022-30127 – Chromium-based elevation of privilege
- CVE-2022-26905 – Chromium-based spoofing
Your browser should auto-update to the latest version, however, if this does not happen you can trigger it manually by navigating through Microsoft Edge’s menu, and selecting Help and Feedback then About Microsoft Edge, and wait for the update to download and then restart it.
