Microsoft Edge: The browser's password manager is improved
Microsoft's browser Edge is celebrating a second spring thanks to the switch to Chromium and is now the second most popular browser after Google's Chrome. The new popularity is also due to the fact that Microsoft is consistently working on Edge and improving it.
This can now be seen in the planned changes to password management. Because the Redmond group announced in a post in its tech community that the password manager will be improved (via Windows Central). So the last Edge Dev update adds the ability to select and delete multiple passwords at the same time.
Edge build 91.0.845.2 will also add other new features, so it will be possible on Macs to switch quickly between tabs using a keyboard shortcut - this functionality is already available on Windows.
The full list of new features:
- The ability to select and delete multiple passwords at the same time from the edge:/passwords/settings have been added.
- The ability to quickly switch between two tabs on the Mac with a keyboard shortcut has been added. Note that this is already available under Windows via the tab integration of Edge in the Alt + Tab switcher.
- A page with settings for certificate management has been added on Linux.
- Added a message explaining that vertical tabs cannot be collapsed when tabs are open in IE mode.
In addition, some bugs have been fixed, especially various crashes have been eliminated, these occurred before, among others when closing the browser and when visiting certain pages - Microsoft does not provide any details here. Various "changed behaviours" are also listed here; these are also essentially bug fixes.
