Here Are the Latest Updates Coming to Microsoft Edge

Microsoft has been hard at work perfecting its new Edge browser, but the latest update might actually eliminate support for users who are still on older versions of their operating systems. When the Chromium based browser was first launched back in 2020, it was available for Windows 7 users as well. In spite of the fact that this is the case, Microsoft is now suspending support for any operating system that is older than Windows 10.

The main impact that this will have is that users on older operating systems would now no longer receive any updates for their Edge browsers with all things having been considered and taken into account. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that there are some positive updates coming as well, all of which can make Edge more useful than might have been the case otherwise.

One of the most widely requested updates that Microsoft is now finally following through with will allow users to open their favorited sites and web pages in a new tab. An update like this is useful because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up streamlining the user experience to a pretty huge degree.

All of these updates are coming with the release of Edge 110, and it should also be mentioned that the dark mode within this browser is getting serious upgrade as well. Sidebar content will now be given the same hue if you have dark mode enabled, with the browser forcing dark mode even if the sidebar does not allow for such an aesthetic.

Many users have also complained that their browser crashes whenever they try to add a new favorite. This issue has now been resolved. Most browser crashing problems including those associated with updating Family Safety settings and opening private incognito Windows have also been sorted out. There will still be a few growing pains here or there, but this update is a clear sign that Microsoft is constantly trying to improve the user experience the Edge browser can provide.
