Microsoft usually provides a list of known issues for each Dev release; however, this time, we do not know what is broken in Edge Dev 104.0.1271.2. Remember that Microsoft uses Canary and Dev for testing early updates, so it is not the best idea to use these channels for your daily Internet surfing or work due to possible bugs and instabilities.

You can download Edge Dev from the official Edge Insider website on Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android.
