Microsoft today shared a big milestone for Microsoft Edge. The company says 1,000 builds have now gone through both the Edge Dev and Canary channels since the initial announcement of the Chromium-based browser. Of course, Microsoft is also pushing out the weekly Edge Dev build too (95.0.1000.0) and we have a look at everything you need to know.
Since this is one of the first Edge Version 95 builds, don’t expect anything major in this release. Microsoft just added a couple of fixes here and there, and also fixed some crashes. The changelog is small, and you can peek at it below.
- Added the ability to sync custom IE mode site lists between devices.
- Re-enabled the improved browser profile sign-in dialog.
- Fixed a crash on launch on Linux.
- Fixed a crash when clicking the … menu in a PWA or website installed as an app.
- Fixed a crash when watching videos.
- Fixed a crash when using Smart Copy.
- Fixed an issue where the browser crashes when switching to a different profile, including Guest or Kids mode.
- Fixed an error when exporting a Collection to Word.
- Fixed an issue on mobile where Collections sometimes don’t sync.
Even though Microsoft hit the 1,000 build mark, some of the same known issues from the past months will still persist in this latest version of Edge Dev. We sound like a broken record at this point, but it’s the same issues with ad-blocking extensions on YouTube, tabs and extensions crashing, Kaspersky Internet Suite, duplicate favorites, and wobbling with scrolling.
Congratulations to Microsoft for hitting the 1,000 build mark! There are sure to be many more builds to come. Happy downloading, Edge Insiders, and remember to submit your feedback to Microsoft, as it helps make the browser better for everyone!
