Edge Dev 92.0.891.1 makes vertical tabs much better

Microsoft’s new Edge browser update is here, and if you’re like me, you probably don’t give it much thought. But this update includes a number of new features that will make Edge a much better browser, especially for those of us who often open lots of tabs.

Recently, I was using the latest version of Edge, and I found that my vertical tabs were not working. Edge, like all modern browsers, uses the “tabindex=” attribute to let other elements know that it is a tab. Unfortunately, Edge only supported “tabindex=” on one side. That means that if you wanted a tab on both sides, you had to set the “tabindex=” attribute twice!

While Edge Dev is mostly known for its ability to make the most out of any browser, we have been going back and forth on a certain part of the user interface. This time we finally got the vertical tabs working properly in Edge Dev!

Edge Dev Build 92.0.891.1 is today’s Insider release that brings many important improvements to the browser. These include a new design for the Immersive Reader feature and some new options for vertical tabs. You can enable or disable them in all open browser windows at will, and even hide the title bar when vertical tabs are enabled.

What’s new in Edge Dev build 92.0.891.1

New functions

Greater reliability

  • Fixed an issue on the Mac where dragging a tab out of a window would sometimes cause the browser to freeze.
  • Fixed a crash at startup on the Mac.
  • Fixed an issue on the Mac where the browser would sometimes not open when multiple profiles were present.
  • Fixed an error when using the purchasing functions.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented some websites from being installed as applications.
  • Fixed a crash when using tabs in IE mode.

Behaviour change

  • The Use of Cookies dialog box has been improved.
  • Fixed an issue where tabs were sometimes not restored after closing the browser following a computer restart due to a Windows update.
  • Fixed an issue where some websites’ data was deleted when closing the browser because this setting was enabled, even though these sites were on the exclusion list and should have been kept.
  • Fixed an issue where searching for settings sometimes caused the settings page to be missing.
  • Fixed an issue on the Mac where some parts of Shy’s full-screen interface would not respond to input.
  • Fixed an issue where videos would sometimes not scale or adjust.
  • Fixed an issue where the search sidebar did not always close.
  • Fixed an issue where PWAs, or websites installed as applications, installed in multiple profiles sometimes had multiple shortcuts in the taskbar instead of just one.
  • Fixed an issue where websites installed as applications sometimes didn’t have an icon on shortcuts when they should have.
  • Fixed an issue where changing the copy/paste settings did not affect content already in the clipboard.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused tooltips to be placed incorrectly.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented the profile picture from showing on the profile settings page.
  • Fixed an issue where pages sometimes changed unexpectedly when you first opened the browser.
  • Fixed an issue where some browsing was not allowed to be blocked when family security was enabled.
  • Fixed an issue in kiosk mode where the browser never reset after a certain amount of time when the current page is in IE mode.

Known issues

  • Some extensions, such as. B. the Microsoft Editor extension, do not work under Linux.  Once installed, an error occurs and they stop.  We are currently conducting an investigation.
  • Users of some ad blocking extensions may encounter errors when playing on Youtube.  As a workaround, you can resume playback by temporarily disabling the extension.  For more information, see this help article.
  • Some users are still experiencing the following problem: all tabs and extensions immediately crash with the STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error message.  The most common cause of this error is outdated security software or antivirus software from vendors like Symantec. In this case, updating this software solves the problem.
  • Kaspersky Internet Suite users who have installed the corresponding extension may experience problems loading websites such as Gmail.  This failure is due to the fact that the main Kaspersky software is outdated. This can be remedied by making sure the latest version is installed.
  • Some users still see duplicate bookmarks.  This issue should decrease now that automatic deduplication has been implemented in the Insider streams, but we are still working on implementing it in the stable release.  We also found duplication when the manual deduplicator was run on multiple machines before each machine had time to fully synchronize its changes. Ensure that sufficient time has elapsed between deduplicator runs.
  • Some users experience wobbly scrolling with trackpad or touchscreen gestures, where scrolling in one dimension causes the page to move back and forth slightly in the other dimension.  Note that this only affects some websites and seems to be worse on some devices.  This is likely due to our ongoing work to adapt scrolling to inherited edge behavior. So, if this behavior is unwanted, you can temporarily disable it by unchecking the edge://flags/#edge-experimental-scrolling flag.
