Microsoft Edge 104.0.1293.47 Download | TechSpot

Download the latest browser from Microsoft for a fast, secure, and modern web experience. Browse the web anywhere with one seamless experience from your phone to your computer and other signed-in devices. Microsoft Edge is also a secure browser that gives you the tools to protect your privacy and security online.

Making the web a better place for everyone

We adopted the Chromium open source project when developing Microsoft Edge to create better web compatibility for our customers and less web fragmentation for all web developers.

Investing in open source

We’ve also started returning contributions to Chromium in areas such as accessibility, touch, ARM64, and others. Our plan is to continue working in Chromium rather than creating a parallel project. We work directly with the teams at Google and we look forward to working even more closely with the open source community. See our Microsoft Edge “Explainers” on GitHub and check out our source code release to learn more about our contributions.

We listen!

The Microsoft Edge team would like to hear from you. In December, we asked visitors to this site “if you could change one thing about the web, what would it be?”. We’ve read your answers and have some thoughts to share. Visit the Microsoft Edge Insider forum to see what the community is saying about these and other topics.

What’s new

Feature updates

  • Improve your security on the web. Enhancements to improve your security on the web in edge://settings/privacy now include Basic as the new default option. With this option, Microsoft Edge applies additional security protection to the less visited sites. This feature preserves the user experience for the most popular sites on the web. For more information, see Safer browsing with Microsoft Edge.
  • Import Chrome data without Chrome during First Run Experience. This feature allows a user to enter their Chrome credentials by logging into their Google account during Microsoft Edge’s First Run Experience. This feature can be disabled by disabling First Run Experience with the HideFirstRunExperience policy, or by setting AutoImportAtFirstRun to ‘DisabledAutoImport’.

Known problem

Microsoft Edge on 32-bit (x86) Windows 10 version 1809 may experience boot issues with the upcoming July non-secure Windows updates (KB5015880 – 17763.3224). This has been fixed with the latest Microsoft Edge Stable channel version, version 103.0.1246.62. Enterprise users encountering this issue on Microsoft Edge Extended Stable channel version 102 should disable the NewSmartScreenLibraryEnabled policy.

Version 103:

Feature updates

  • Ability to control automatic profile switching. The GuidedSwitchEnabled policy allows Microsoft Edge to prompt the user to switch to the correct profile when Microsoft Edge detects that a link is a personal or work link.
  • Client certificate changer. This feature provides users with a way to clear the remembered certificate and reuse the certificate picker when visiting a site that requires authentication with an HTTP certificate. Switching can be done without manually exiting Microsoft Edge.
  • More reliable web defense. Browse the web with more reliable protection thanks to the rewritten Microsoft Defender SmartScreen library for Microsoft Edge on Windows. The NewSmartScreenLibraryEnabled policy allows enterprise customers to continue using the old version of the library until it is discontinued in Microsoft Edge version 105.
  • Update Search banner in the Microsoft Edge address bar. This banner helps you stay in the flow of your work by limiting your search focus to work-only results. To see work-oriented results from your organization, select the banner at the beginning of your search. To be taken to your organization’s search results page, select the banner at any point in your search. Use the AddressBarMicrosoftSearchInBingProviderEnabled policy to enable or disable this feature.

Version 102:

Security updates for stable channels are listed here.

Feature updates

  • Ability to set the default profile. The EdgeDefaultProfileEnabled policy allows you to set a default profile to be used when opening the browser instead of the last profile used. This policy does not apply if the –profile-directory parameter is specified.
  • Client certificate changer. This feature provides users with a way to clear the remembered certificate and reuse the certificate picker when they visit a site that requires HTTP certificate authentication. This can be done without manually exiting Microsoft Edge.
  • Launch Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) from the favorites bar. Improvements to the PWA launch experience will appear with an Apps icon that can be added to the toolbar.
  • Manage the ‘Allow extensions from other stores’ setting. Now you can use the ControlDefaultStateOfAllowExtensionFromOtherStoresSettingEnabled policy to set the default state of the ‘Allow extensions from other stores’ setting.
  • Improvements to the Enterprise Site List Manager. Now you can configure shared cookies between Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer in your list of company sites. You can access the Enterprise Site List Manager at edge://compat/SiteListManager.
