Edge Dev 96.0.1032.0

Microsoft has added an item to the menu when you right-click tabs that will move the tab to a new profile regardless if that new profile has any windows currently open or not.

Microsoft has also added voice typing to webpages provided that the Edge browser has been opened when using the Windows 11 operating system.

Microsoft has also made it easier to close some toast notifications by adding the traditional “X” to the corner of the notification so they can be closed immediately. This is with regards to the toast notifications that appear when managing Edge’s new Collections feature.

Microsoft has also added a new button to Edge on iPad that allows for the exit of the Immersive Reader.

There is also improved messaging when the Web Widget doesn’t open when an extension disabled it.

The Edge browser will automatically update itself the next time you close the browser window. However, if your browser is open, you can head to Settings > Help and Feedback > About Microsoft Edge, and then the browser will automatically check for new updates and apply them.
