The release of the 100th version of Microsoft Edge


A major, though far from obvious, change in how the application works is the addition of a three-digit version number in the User Agent header. It is noted that this conversion can cause problems with the display of some sites that are currently focused on a two-digit number as part of this parameter. To solve the problem, Microsoft left a loophole in the form of "freezing" the digital designation of version 99 by enabling an option in the settings (edge://flags). You can also get rid of the problem thanks to a special policy.

The 100th Edge received integrated protection against some vulnerabilities based on memory corruption. In addition, an improved tool for initial acquaintance with PDF media files from Outlook and Explorer has been added to the browser. It will allow you to open the file in the "Read Only" status. It also allows you to interact with attachments from the mail client and media files stored on the device, including objects with an electronic signature, without using third-party tools.

The new "beta" Edge now has an instant launch key for local and cloud Microsoft Office programs. Initially, it is not activated, and the key may not be available in the next release versions of the program. To activate it in the beta build of the application, on the "Appearance" tab, type the command edge://settings/appearance in the URL line and click on the corresponding checkbox.
