Microsoft has released a new update for its Edge browser in stable version which brings it to build 93.0.961.38. Two steps behind the Dev and Canary channels (they already use version 95), Edge in the stable channel receives some interesting improvements with this update.

Once Edge has been updated, it has tab groups, the ability to hide the title bar in vertical tab mode, the ability to use Picture-in-Picture (PiP) or non-merge mode when it is used in compatibility with Internet Explorer. These are all the changes that come with this update.

What’s new in Edge

Tab groups. Tab grouping has been enabled, which allows tabs to be categorized into user-defined groups and helps find, edit, and manage tabs more efficiently across multiple workflows. Picture of Video in Picture (PiP) from the floating toolbar. When you hover over a supported video, a toolbar appears allowing you to view that video in a PiP window. This enhancement is currently available to Microsoft Edge users on macOS. The title bar can now be hidden when using vertical tabs. You can save space by hiding the title bar of the browser, while it is in the vertical tabs. To do this, go to edge: // configuration / appearance and, in the “Customize toolbar” section, select the option to hide the title bar in vertical tab mode. Initial preferences in Microsoft Edge. Microsoft Edge now supports a limited number of Initial Preferences (formerly Primary Preferences). This enhancement can be implemented by default by IT administrators before users launch the browser for the first time. Here you have more information about it. IE mode in Microsoft Edge will support “no merge” behavior. For an end user, when a new browser window is launched from an application in IE mode, it will be in a separate session, similar to the non-merge behavior in Internet Explorer 11. You will need to adjust the list of sites. to configure which sites to avoid session sharing as “no merge”. For each Microsoft Edge window, the first time an IE mode tab is visited in that window, if it is one of the sites designated “do not merge”, that window is locked in an IE session ” do not merge ”different from all other Microsoft Edge windows at least until the last IE mode tab of that window is closed. This follows the previous behavior where users could start IE without merging and could also start Microsoft Edge without merging through other mechanisms. There is a new policy to stop the implicit connection. The ImplicitSignInEnabled policy allows system administrators to disable implicit sign-in in Microsoft Edge browsers. Strategies to bypass ClickOnce and DirectInvoke requests. Policies have been updated to allow bypassing ClickOnce and DirectInvoke application prompts for specific file types, from specific domains. To do this, it is necessary to enable ClickOnceEnabled or DirectInvokeEnabled, enable the AutoOpenFileTypes policy and define the list of specific file types for which ClickOnce and DirectInvoke should be disabled and enable the AutoOpenAllowedForURLs policy and define the list of specific domains for which ClickOnce will be disabled and DirectInvoke. Removed 3DES from TLS. Support for the TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA cipher suite will be removed. This change occurs in the Chromium project, which Microsoft Edge is based on. For more information, go to the Chrome Platform Status entry. Additionally, in Microsoft Edge version 93, the TripleDESEnabled policy will be available to support scenarios that need to maintain compatibility with obsolete servers. This compatibility policy will be obsolete and will no longer work on Microsoft Edge version 95. Make sure to update the affected servers before this date.

Remember that you can update Edge on macOS and Windows by going to the three dots at the top right, then clicking “Help & Feedback” and then “About Microsoft Edge”.
