There is a new Microsoft Edge build in the Stable Channel in the form of Edge version 98.0.1108.43. The new build brings several feature updates like an enhanced security mode when web browsing, more multi-profile personalization option, and new overlay scrollbars are here too. The full feature update list is given below:

  • Enhance your security on the web. This is a browsing mode in Microsoft Edge where browser security takes priority, giving users an extra layer of protection when browsing the web. Administrators can apply group policies to end-user desktops (Windows, macOS, and Linux) to help protect against in-the-wild exploits (also referred to 0-days). The following group policies support this browsing mode:
  • Personalize multi-profile experiences with profile preferences for sites. Users can personalize their multi-profile experience with the ability to create a customized list of sites for automatic profile switching in Microsoft Edge.

  • Deprecate WebRTC's Plan B SDP semantics. This change deprecates a legacy Session Description Protocol (SDP) dialect called Plan B. This SDP format is being replaced by the Unified Plan, which is a spec-compliant and cross-browser compatible SDP format. For more information, see the Chrome Platform Status entry PSA: Plan B should throw in M96 Beta and Stable, and PSA: Plan B throwing in Stable and Extended Deprecation Trial End Date. Requesting a Trial for RTCPeerConnection Plan B SDP Semantics allows sites to continue to use the deprecated API until version 101.

  • Overlay scrollbars added to Microsoft Edge. We've updated our scrollbars with an overlay-based design. Users can turn this feature on in edge://flags.

Alongside feature updates, Edge 98.0.1108.43 also brings some important security updates that are listed below:

  • CVE-2022-23261: Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) Tampering Vulnerability
  • CVE-2022-23262: Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability
  • CVE-2022-23263: Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability

There are also lots of new policy updates too which you can read about in the release notes.
