There are a number of new features and bug fixes coming to the Windows 10 Edge browser. The new release is also the first to be available in the Windows Insider Program, so it’s possible some of the features may change before the final version is released.

Microsoft published Edge Dev 93.0.957.0 today, which is a really dull update for a casual user.

There are a few more policies available for system administrators.
