Download the latest version of Microsoft Browser for a fast, secure and modern web experience. Browse the web from anywhere with a single, easy-to-use interface from your phone to your computer and other signed-in devices. Microsoft Edge is also a secure browser that gives you the tools to protect your online privacy and security.
Making the Internet better for everyone
We adopted the Chromium open source project when developing Microsoft Edge to provide better web compatibility for our customers and less web fragmentation for all web developers.
Investment in open source
We have also begun to contribute to Chromium in areas such as accessibility, touch, ARM64, and more. We plan to continue working in Chromium rather than creating a parallel project. We work directly with Google teams and look forward to further collaboration with the open source community. To learn more about our contributions, see Microsoft Edge “Explainers” on GitHub and check out our source code release.
We are listening!
The Microsoft Edge team wants to hear from you. In December, we asked visitors to this site, “If you could change something on the Internet, what would it be?” We have read your responses and would like to share some thoughts. Head to Microsoft Edge Insider Forum to see what the community has to say about this and other topics.
- Starting with Microsoft Edge 102 for Windows, Microsoft Edge now automatically compresses disk caches to improve performance and reduce disk footprint. Read more here.
- Fixed various bugs and performance issues. We recommend that users install this update to resolve the following issue.
Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 version 1809 32-bit (x86) may experience startup issues due to the upcoming Windows July Non-Security Updates (KB5015880 – 17763.3224). This has been fixed in the latest version of Microsoft Edge stable channel version 103.0.1264.62. Enterprise users experiencing this issue in Microsoft Edge version 102 enhanced stable channel should disable the NewSmartScreenLibraryEnabled policy.
- Ability to manage automatic profile switching. The GuidedSwitchEnabled policy allows Microsoft Edge to prompt the user to switch to the appropriate profile when Microsoft Edge determines that the link is personal or work.
- Client certificate switcher. This feature will offer users a way to clear a remembered certificate and reopen the certificate picker when they visit a site that requires http certificate authentication. You can switch without manually exiting Microsoft Edge.
- Stronger web protection. Browse the web more securely with 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 is deprecated in Microsoft Edge version 105.
- Job search banner in Microsoft Edge address bar. This banner helps you stay in the flow of your work by narrowing down your search to work-only results. To view your organization’s work-focused results, select the banner at the start of your search. To go to your organization’s workplace search results page, select the banner anywhere in the search. Use the AddressBarMicrosoftSearchInBingProviderEnabled policy to enable or disable this feature.
The stable channel security updates are listed here.
- Ability to set a default profile. The EdgeDefaultProfileEnabled policy will allow you to set the default profile that will be used when the browser is opened instead of the last used profile. This policy will not apply if the –profile-directory option was specified.
- Client certificate switcher. This feature will offer users a way to clear a remembered certificate and re-open the certificate selection window when visiting a site that requires HTTP certificate authentication. You can do this without manually leaving Microsoft Edge.
- Launch Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) from the Favorites bar. Improvements to the PWA launch process will start showing up with an apps icon that can be added to the toolbar.
- Control the “Allow extensions from other stores” setting. You can now use the ControlDefaultStateOfAllowExtensionFromOtherStoresSettingEnabled policy to set the default state for “Allow extensions from other stores”.
- Improvements to the Enterprise Site List Manager. You can now set shared cookies between Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer in the list of corporate sites. You can access the Enterprise Site List Manager at edge://compat/SiteListManager.
