Microsoft Edge version 103 has hit the stable channel for everyone to download. Other than the gaming features like Clarity Boost and Gaming Hub, this release doesn’t bring any major new features and is a security-centric update.
According to Microsoft, there are four notable feature updates in Edge 103, though these aren’t really for consumers. The first is the ability to control automatic profile switching. A second is a client certificate switcher. The third is a more reliable web defense. Lastly, there’s the work search banner in the Edge address bar. Check it out below.
- The GuidedSwitchEnabled policy lets Microsoft Edge prompt the user to switch to the appropriate profile when Microsoft Edge detects that a link is a personal or work link.
- Client Certificate Switcher. This feature will offer a way for users to clear the remembered certificate and resurface the certificate picker when visiting a site requiring http certificate authentication. Switching can be done without manually quitting Microsoft Edge.
- Browse the web with more reliable protection thanks to the rewritten Microsoft Defender SmartScreen library for Microsoft Edge on Windows. The NewSmartScreenLibraryEnabled policy will allow enterprise customers to continue using the legacy version of the library until it’s deprecated in Microsoft Edge version 105.
- Work Search Banner in the Microsoft Edge address bar. This banner helps you stay in the flow of your work by narrowing your search focus to work-only results.
There are also four new policies in this build, related to guided switch, internet explorer mode zoom, live captions, and origin keyed agent clustering. As for the security features and patches, you can learn more about that over at Microsoft’s blog.
