Instead of fixing issues with Edge, upgrade to a better browser: Opera
You deserve a better browser ! 350 million people use Opera daily, a fully-fledged navigation experience that comes with various built-in packages, enhanced resource consumption and great design.Here's what Opera can do:

  • Easy migration: use the Opera assistant to transfer exiting data, such as bookmarks, passwords, etc.
  • Optimize resource usage: your RAM memory is used more efficiently than Chrome does
  • Enhanced privacy: free and unlimited VPN integrated
  • No ads: built-in Ad Blocker speeds up loading of pages and protects against data-mining
  • Download Opera

We know you kike to keep up with everything that is happening with your favorite browser, so allow us to share the latest news.

Recently, we’ve presented Edge Dev build 105.0.1329.1, and we discussed how Microsoft is trying to improve your system’s performance by using Cache compression in Edge.

Not everything is sugar and rainbows, and we also talked about how the latest Canary build broke the browser, which won’t open anymore for some users.

But, putting all that aside, it’s time to look towards the future and see what the latest Dev Channel build brought for Edge Insiders.

What’s new in Edge Dev Build 105.0.1336.2?

Let’s start by first addressing the Added Features section of the release notes, where Microsoft wrote that it added a Narrator announcing banner on Learn more link in the Edge browser.

Furthermore, the tech giant added support for a management policy from Chromium to control if Unthrottled Nested Timeout is Enabled.

Keep in mind that this will be deprecated in the future, as Microsoft mentioned in the official release notes for this patch.

Let’s also have a look at the rest of the changelog and see what else is waiting for us after we download and install this build.

Improved reliability:   

  • Performance improvements to IMap properties  
  • Improved iOS tooltips  
  • Improved Android shared device support  
  • Optimized read aloud voice options page for Android   
  • Improved Android shared device support  

 Changed behavior:   

  • Fixed an issue where the profile popup sometimes is cut off 
  • Fixed various crashes  
  • Fixed Diagnostic button layout  
  • Fixed Drag and Drop for Collections 
  • Fixed a crash when clicking the Tab Actions Menu button   

Keep in mind that, although Microsoft has not mentioned any known issues in the latest Dev update, users noticed that version 105.0.1336.2 misses a chunk of its settings.

If you open Settings, then go to Privacy, Search, and finally Services, you will see no Services section responsible for managing search engines, shopping features, and search suggestions.

The strange disappearance of the Services section does not appear to be something intended, as it is still available via its direct link.

If you use Edge Dev or Canary and want to change the default search engine, use the following command to access the page:

edge://settings/search
