Still waiting for the auto remove of the download bar and a "open" or "save as" dialog box like Internet Explorer.

the New Downloads UI in about:flags will get rid of the download bar.

and under Options/Downloads set Ask where to save each file before downloading, and it will give an "open" or "save as" dialogue box like Internet Explorer.

I am hoping they add 3.7 v8 JS engine in C17 since it contains new Garbage Collector (little tweaked Incremental Garbage Collector), it will be great for memory conscious guys.

Ctrl+O, Ctrl+S. The dialog boxes are there and even use IE's shortcuts. The menu items aren't though, but this is pretty rare commands to spend precious menu space on, and a keyboard is faster anyway.

Edit: Oh, maybe this was about the download manager! Haha.

The Canary build version number went up to 18 today. It's only a matter of time now until 16 enters stable and 17 is promoted to the beta channel.

My chrome refuses to start on the new tab homepage, it keeps restoring my lab open tabs on a fresh startup. I have that option off as well. Guess it's a bug in the latest dev version.

      Here's what's fixed, improved, and still broken in Windows 10 build 20241
      by João Carrasqueira



      As per Microsoft's Wednesday tradition, a new build of Windows 10 is rolling out Insiders in the Dev channel today, this time being build number 20241. As usual, the list of new features is small, but there are some visual changes and improvements to the Settings app.

      However, the build also comes with the usual lists of improvements, fixes, and known issues, which might be useful to know before you rush to install it. Starting with the improvements, there are some for Narrator and the Japanese IME:

      As for the fixes in this release, there's a pretty long list to take a look at:

      Finally, there are still some known issues:

      If you're not in the Insider program, Microsoft released a new Windows 10 feature update, version 20H2, just yesterday, and we've rounded up all the new features in it. There are also some known issues for it, but nothing new if you were already using Windows 10 version 2004. It'll likely be a few months before the features in these new Insider builds make their way to the general public.

      Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 20241 to the Dev channel with theme-aware splash screens
      by Rich Woods



      It's Wednesday at 10am PT, and that can only mean one thing. There's a new Windows 10 Insider Preview build in the Dev channel. This week's build is 20241, and as usual, not much has changed, although there are a few things.

      The Dev channel gets weekly builds from the rs_prerelease branch, so it's in a perpetual state of prerelease and it's not tied to a feature update. At some point, features get promoted to the Beta channel, which is actually a preview for the next feature update. Unfortunately, no one actually knows what the next feature update is, and Microsoft isn't talking about it. The most recent update, 20H2, was released this week, and 21H1 might be canceled entirely in favor of a Windows 10X release.

      As for what's new in this build, we're now seeing theme-aware splash screens, so you'll see light and dark splash screens instead of accent-colored ones. Here's the full changelog:

      It's unclear why only that small subset of apps supports the theme-aware splash screen, rather than anything with a transparent splash screen.

      As always, you can grab today's build via Windows Update. If you're not on the Dev channel yet, you can enroll through the Windows Insider Program tab in Settings.

      Google Chrome 86.0.4240.111 (offline installer)
      by Razvan Serea



      The web browser is arguably the most important piece of software on your computer. You spend much of your time online inside a browser: when you search, chat, email, shop, bank, read the news, and watch videos online, you often do all this using a browser.

      Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. Use one box for everything--type in the address bar and get suggestions for both search and Web pages. Thumbnails of your top sites let you access your favorite pages instantly with lightning speed from any new tab. Desktop shortcuts allow you to launch your favorite Web apps straight from your desktop. Chrome has many useful features built in, including automatic full-page translation and access to thousands of apps, extensions, and themes from the Chrome Web Store.

      Google Chrome is one of the best solutions for Internet browsing giving you high level of security, speed and great features.

      Important to know! The offline installer links do not include the automatic update feature.

      Windows 10 build 20236.1005 is now live in the Dev channel with new known issues
      by João Carrasqueira



      Microsoft has released a new cumulative update for build 20236 of Windows 10, which rolled out to Insiders in the Dev channel earlier this week. Build 20236 was a relatively small one in terms of new features, only adding a new way to access the refresh rate settings for your monitor through the Settings app.

      This cumulative update brings the build number to 20236.1005, and the purpose of the update is to test the servicing pipeline for Windows updates. Usually, that means there are no changes in terms of features and functionality, but there are some small changes here. For starters, the new touch keyboard and emoji picker are now enabled for everyone in the Dev channel.

      Additionally, there are two new known issues on the list:

      If you're enrolled in the Dev channel, this update should be downloaded and installed automatically sooner rather than later. Of course, you can always check for updates yourself if you want it right away.

      Microsoft releases Edge Dev build 87.0.664.8 with a bunch of new features
      by Rich Woods



      Today, Microsoft is releasing Edge Dev build 87.0.664.8. Notably, this is the last major Edge 87 build that's going to arrive in the Dev channel. Assuming that all goes well, we should see Edge 88 starting next week, and the Beta channel should start getting Edge 87 some time next week.

      This build actually comes with a number of new features, some of which are more notable than others. One feature, which was announced a week ago, gives you price comparisons for items in Collections. This is meant to help with your holiday shopping. Also, the Favorites menu is now a pinnable pane.

      Here's the full list of new features:

      And of course, there are fixes and known issues. Here's what got fixed for improved reliability:

      Here are the fixes for changed behavior:

      Finally, here are the known issues:

      As always, you can update manually by going to Settings -> About Microsoft Edge, or it will eventually update in the background.
