Microsoft is currently experimenting with a new feature for its Edge browser, which will allow users to delete multiple saved passwords at once. This capability is available in the Edge Canary build 90.0.807.0 (or newer), as spotted by Reddit user Leopeva64-2.
The new Microsoft Edge comes with a built-in password manager that saves and syncs credentials across desktop and mobile devices. Currently, if a user wants to delete multiple passwords simultaneously, they have to do it manually one by one. To address this problem, the company has now added checkboxes next to saved passwords. It should enable users to delete multiple or all password fields directly from the Settings page.
Microsoft is also working on a new user-initiated search experience for autofill suggestions that should help users while filling out forms in the browser. It makes it easier to search for information on online forms that do not support the autofill functionality.
“Today, if you have your information saved on Microsoft Edge, autofill suggestions pop up automatically and help you save time while filling out forms. but in cases where autofill misses a form, or if you want to fetch that data in forms that don’t typically have autofill (like temporary forms) – you can explicitly search for your information and fill it easily,” the company explained on the What’s Next page.
This new autofill experience is available as a preview in the Microsoft Edge Canary and Dev channel today, and you’ll need to type a / in the search box to enable it. This feature will likely come to the stable channel of Microsoft Edge with version 90 in April 2021. If you want to know about other features coming to Edge, Microsoft has recently published a new roadmap info page for the browser.
