Karlston posted a topic in Software NewsMicrosoft Edge gets the ability to generate unique passwords for the users Microsoft has added another highly requested feature that should help users when creating a new account on any website. With the latest Edge updates, users can now take the browser's help to generate strong and unique passwords for different websites, as spotted by Techdows. The feature is currently limited to Edge Canary and Dev builds, but if you are using one of those then you can just visit a website and click on create a new account to try the feature out for yourself. Once you have entered all the information and selected the Edge's suggested password, the browser will add your credentials to the saved password list so you don't have to remember it. If you're already using a password manager or don't want password recommendations from Microsoft Edge then you can follow the steps below to disable the feature: Open Microsoft Edge and click on the ellipsis icon (...) on the top right corner of the browser. Navigate to Settings > Profiles > Passwords. Find the "Suggest strong passwords” setting and turn off the toggle to disable the feature. You can always go back to the passwords menu if you want to enable the feature again in the future. Microsoft Edge Canary and Dev are currently on version 87 which is expected to roll out to Beta users in the near future. Edge Stable users, on the other hand, recently received version 85 and will have to wait for the next update to try out the new features.

zanderthunder posted a topic in Software NewsWindows 10's built-in Edge browser (now informally called Legacy Edge) has always natively supported ARM64, or at least since Windows on ARM was a thing. But up until now, those testing out Microsoft's new Chromium-based Edge browser haven't been able to run it natively on ARM; they could only get the x86 version running in emulation. Now, testers can finally use native ARM64 Edge Chromium. While most 32-bit Intel apps run fine in virtualization on ARM processors, browsers don't. Browsers generate code in real-time, making it hard to cache. That means that for Windows on ARM to be truly viable, there needs to be native browsers. Up until now, the only web browsers that ran native on ARM64 PCs were Edge Spartan and Firefox, the latter of which was announced back in December. But while native Firefox was announced at the same event as Chromium, Firefox was available for testing in January. Edge is now the first Chromium-based browser to have a shipping version running on native ARM64, albeit not from the stable channel. I've been told that Chrome won't be coming until next year. For now, ARM64 Edge Chromium is only available in the Canary channel. It will be coming to Dev and Beta channels soon; however, it won't be in the stable channel when it's generally available on January 15.

zanderthunder posted a topic in Software NewsMicrosoft usually only provides detailed changelogs for Edge builds in the Dev channel, but today, the company has changed things up with a forum post dedicated to the latest Canary build, which carries number 80.0.319.0. The company says it's still determining if it will keep publishing daily changelog posts for Canary builds and is gauging interest in them. To kick things off, Microsoft posted the changelog in a very cryptic way, but user Cameron_Bush managed to decipher the text. Despite being on a daily release cycle, there's quite a lot that's new in the build, including the ability to import browsing history from Firefox, as well as support for extensions that change the browser's appearance from the Chrome Web Store - though in our testing this doesn't seem to be referring to themes. Here's what's new: Created an easier way to add a favorite. Opening collections items can now be done via the keyboard. Downloads now warn you of dangerous items. Extensions now show the publisher's information. New options for organising installed apps. Additional zoom options are now available. Microphone or camera use is now shown in the address bar. Extensions that modify the browser's appearance can now be installed from the chrome web store. Opening apps can now be done via the keyboard. Firefox history can now be imported. Just like with Dev builds, Microsoft is providing two lists of fixes and improvements, one for behavior and one for reliability. Here's the list of reliability fixes: Favorites opened via touchscreen no longer crash the browser. Intranet sites no longer hang when loading. Reopening windows no longer fails. Several application guard crashes have been fixed. Tracking prevention exceptions can now be added without the settings page occasionally crashing. Windows can no longer be created offscreen. Improved the password import success rate. New tabs opened quickly now always succeed. Downloads no longer fail if you quickly close the tab. Opening InPrivate windows no longer fails. Windows closed quickly now stay closed. Saving PDF documents no longer crashes the tab. Finally, here are the behavior changes in this release, which include more frequent checks for updates to the browser: Temporarily removed the new PDF toolbar. Organising extensions can now be done by individual sources like the web store or unpacked files. Standard form controls are now accessible. History items are spaced better. Intranet searches now appear in the address bar. Performing searches from the address bar now saves that data to the cloud so it can sync to other devices. Wording on error pages has been improved. Intranet search performance has been improved. Tabs created offscreen can now be switched to. History items cleared with the clear browsing data dialog are now properly deleted from the current session. Images on certain webpages are no longer squished. Edge now checks for updates more frequently. The latest build should now be rolling out to everyone in the Canary channel, and these improvements should be available to Insiders in the Dev channel sometime next week.
