Microsoft Edge Insider Dev Channel gets a new bug fixing update and official macOS release

Microsoft has released a new update for the Edge Insider Dev Channel. The build fixes several bugs in the new Chromium-based browser, and this new version also increases the height of the rows in the address bar dropdown.

It's worth noting that the Canary channel is still on the build, so the Dev channel is currently slightly far ahead. You can check out everything that's fixed and improved in the build below:

  • Fixed an issue where the whole window sometimes goes blank or black when playing a video.
  • Fixed an issue where certain webpages hang as soon as they load.
  • Fixed an issue where the toggle to sync favorites is disabled even though the master sync toggle is turned on.
  • Fixed an issue where a “Microsoft Edge stopped working” dialog sometimes appears even though Edge is still running.
  • Fixed an issue where the wrong account picture is sometimes used when a user signs in with multiple accounts.
  • Fixed an issue where video control popups are cut off if they’re near the edge of the page.
  • Fixed an issue where video control buttons may overlap each other on small videos.
  • Fixed an issue where entries on the history page get cut off when the window is at a narrow width.
  • Increased the height of the rows in the address bar dropdown.
  • Fixed an issue where the first run experience didn’t render properly.

Microsoft also announced today that the Dev Channel is now officially live on macOS. As a reminder, the Dev channel is on a weekly release cycle, while the Canary channel gets new updates almost every day.

A Beta channel for the new Edge Insider browser is also coming soon on Windows 10 and macOS, and this new branch will get new updates every six weeks. In the meantime, we remind you that it's entirely possible to run the Canary and Dev versions side-by-side on your PC or Mac.
