Microsoft Edge engineers continue to refine its user experience as well as building cohesion with other platforms.

The Edge team published the details of its latest Dev channel release 105.0.1329.1 to the Insider Dissuasion blog with the following notes:

  • Added a button in the PDF toolbar to share documents.  
  • Added a mute indicator on tabs when the browser is muted in the volume mixer 

Improved reliability:   

  • Updated max URL length in the side pane for visual search  
  • We added an “always enforce” list to Enhanced Security mode 
  • Improved iOS Feedback prompt to notify when connection is blocking the ability to send feedback 

Now it seems the Edge browser will support and recognize changes made in the volume mixer on Windows devices and represent those changes (if muted) in the browser tab which should help users who want more ways to control volume on their devices.

There were other smaller improvements that were pushed through with the Dev channel update that include fixing a crash that occurs when getting the page count in print preview, crashes when adding Favorites folders on iOS, and a couple of others.

The Edge team also highlighted its efforts on Disk caching with that are improving the way the browser “compresses disk caches for improved performance and a reduced disk footprint.”

The end result should be an Edge browser with a lighter footprint and less resource hungry experience that has the potential to bog down an operating system.

The Dev Channel update for Edge was made live yesterday and should be showing up for users in the following days.
