Edge Dev Hero 2020 NewfeatureSource: Daniel Rubino / Windows Central

Microsoft just rolled out an update for Edge Dev Insiders that adds several new features to the browser. The update brings the browser to version 91.0.852.0 and adds the ability to middle-click or CTRL+click the history, favorites, and download buttons to open up their respective pages. The clicking functionality also works with some other aspects of Edge.

In addition to the new clicking options, the update completes the rollout of Password Monitor, adds a new option for Feedback, and brings several bug fixes and improvements. Here’s everything that’s new, as found in a Microsoft Tech Community post:

  • Added the ability to open the History, Favorites, Downloads, etc. management pages by middle-clicking or ctrl+clicking their respective buttons on the toolbar or in the browser’s … menu, or by using the new entry in both of their respective context menus.
  • Added a button to the main Feedback dialog to attach files. Note that this functionality was previously present, but hidden behind the “diagnostic data” link.
  • Finished rolling out Password Monitor.
  • Enabled Rebates when shopping by default now that it’s completed its rollout.
  • Enabled support for the management policy from Chromium to control the Import Startup Page Settings, which controls whether or not data import from another browser includes importing startup settings.

In addition to the changes and improvements for Edge, the Edge team shared a way that developers can request to have their extensions featured in the Edge Add-ons section.
