If you are tired of Windows 10 and 11 forcing you to use Microsoft Edge, then MSEdgeRedirect is here to save the day. It can make Microsoft's operating system respect your default browser choice and redirect links from Widgets, Search, and other parts of Windows to Chrome, Firefox, Vivaldi, or whatever browser you keep as the default. Today, the app received an update to version 0.7.0.2 with a bunch of various fixes and improvements.
Here is what is new in MSEdgeRedirect 0.7.0.2:
- Improved IFEO failure messages for easier debugging
- Fixed existing Service Mode options not being detected
- Added not yet active code for a potential WebDriver mode
- Improved Cleanup done by Uninstaller to remove a missed Registry Key
- Fixed Start Menu Shortcuts occasionally not being created when selected
- Added a Delay to Service Mode after redirecting to help prevent redirect loops
- Improved the Update Checker, now loads latest release page instead of all releases page
- Fixed Edge Removal Detection blocking selection of Edge Builds for those who reinstalled Edge
- Added Exception for Redirections of localhost sites, fixes Rog Armoury Crate incompatibility, among others
Known issues include the following:
- Outlook Previews Inop - Will be fixed in 0.7.1.0
- Weird Setup and Setting Menu Edge cases. Will be fixed in 0.8.0.0
