Microsoft Edge Dev

Microsoft has just released a new Edge Dev build, bringing it up to 105.0.1321.0.  The build comes with a couple of features covering PDFs, the Share pane, MicroFeedback, and more. Here’s the scoop.

First up, Microsoft added language region information to the offline voices for iOS  and an “X” close button to the Share pane. Moreover, you will now be notified when you are trying to share a PDF that exceeds 25MB. And finally, the build also features a tooltip for MicroFeedback that is found in the settings. You can now react with a thumbs up or down as a mode of sharing your sentiments.
