Earlier this week, Microsoft released another stable version of the Edge browser, 103.0.1264.37, which brings several new features and a number of general fixes to improve the stability of the application. Among other things, the developers have integrated the ability to manage automatic profile switching into the browser, improved protection against web threats, and also added a tool for switching client certificates.
First of all, it is worth noting the emergence of the ability to control automatic switching of profiles; using the GuidedSwitchEnable policy. Once activated, the policy will prompt the user to switch to the appropriate profile when Edge detects a personal or work link.
Switching client certificates will allow users to clear the in-memory certificate and reopen the certificate selection window when they navigate to a site that requires HTTP certificate authentication. Notably, this switching can take place without having to exit Edge.
Microsoft Edge 103 is here with new features and improvements
Edge 103 provides stronger web protection based on a redesigned Microsoft Defender SmartScreen library. Using the NewSmartScreenLibraryEnable policy will allow corporate users to use the previous version of the library; until it is completely removed with the release of Edge 105.
So, even in the new version of the browser, a banner appeared to search for work topics in the address bar. Also, it helps you focus on completing tasks without being distracted by other things. Using the banner will make it easier for users to search for information related to work in their organization; for which it is enough to activate the corresponding icon at the beginning of the address bar. You can enable this feature using the AddressBarMicrosoftSearchInBingProviderEnabled policy. Here is a summary of the new features.
- Ability to control automatic profile switching
- Client Certificate Switcher
- More reliable web defense
- Work Search Banner in the Microsoft Edge address bar
