The latest Edge Dev update adds improvements to games and passwords.

Microsoft today released another weekly feature update for its browser on the Dev channel. Version 102.0.1245.3 is now available for download with several new features and various improvements.

What’s new in Edge Dev 102.0.1245.3?

The latest Edge Dev update improves the built-in password manager with a new option that allows you to manually add passwords in Settings. You can go to edge://settings/passwords and create a new password without visiting the corresponding website.

Another notable change is that Edge Dev now supports xCloud Clarity Boost by default. Clarity Boost is a relatively new technology that improves picture quality when you play games from the cloud using Xbox Cloud Streaming.

Edge Dev 102.0.1245.3 also includes several new developer APIs:

  • WebView2 has added an API to clear view data.
  • An API has been added to WebView2 applications to handle server certificate errors.
  • Added an API to WebView2 to track HTTP navigation status codes.

Finally, Edge Dev now supports custom IE mode lists in settings and a new control policy from Chromium to control whether GREASE update of user agent client prompts is enabled, which controls whether the updated GREASE specification is used.

Microsoft is also warning users that the latest release of Edge Dev has several known issues:

  • Users of some ad blocking extensions may experience playback errors on YouTube. As a workaround, temporarily disabling the extension should allow playback to continue. See this help article for more information.
  • Some users are still experiencing the issue where all tabs and extensions immediately crash with a STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH error. The most common cause of this error is outdated security or antivirus software from vendors such as Symantec. and in these cases updating this software will fix it.
  • Users of Kaspersky Internet Suite who have the appropriate extension installed may sometimes see web pages such as Gmail not loading. This failure occurs because the main Kaspersky Lab software is outdated, so it can be fixed by installing the latest version.
  • Some users experience “jitter” when scrolling with trackpad gestures or touchscreens, where scrolling in one dimension also causes the page to scroll back and forth slightly in the other. Please note that this only affects certain websites and seems to be worse on some devices. This is most likely due to our ongoing work on bringing scrolling to parity with Edge Legacy behavior, so if this behavior is undesirable, you can disable it temporarily by turning off the edge://flags/#edge-experimental-scrolling flag.

Microsoft is gearing up to end maintenance on Edge 102 in the Dev channel, but users can expect a few more patch updates before migrating to Edge 103. In addition, the company promises to release Edge 102 in the beta channel soon for a final series of testing before shipping. this is for the public.
