This week's Microsoft Edge Dev build is out with support for 32-bit PCs - here's what's new

Microsoft today released the latest Edge Dev build, bring it to version Also, for the first time, the company published a full changelog describing what's new.

For one thing, the Chromium-based browser is now available for 32-bit Windows 10 PCs from the Dev branch. The original builds were only for 64-bit Windows 10 devices, and 32-bit support was added to the Canary branch a week ago. Unfortunately, we're still waiting on official support for Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and macOS.

Also, Read Aloud will now have "more natural sounding voices", which can also be accessed with the JavaScript Speech Synthesis API.

And of course, there are a bunch of fixes. These are the ones pointed out in the release notes:

  • The animated spinner that displays on the About page when checking for updates is no longer scaled improperly

  • After importing favorites from Internet Explorer, the favorites bar folder will be properly named “Favorites bar” instead of “Links”

  • A confirmation prompt will now appear when deleting multiple history items

  • The “Show in folder” option will now work when a download is in the middle of virus scanning

  • Fixed a crash on pressing CTRL+SHIFT+M in inPrivate mode

  • Fixed a poorly rendered animation when viewing “See all cookies and site data” under site permissions

  • Fixed a bug where Microsoft Account credentials were not inherited from Windows 10 until after the first launch

Another fix, which isn't listed here, is for an issue with Facebook scrolling. You might have found on previous builds that you'd constantly have to reload your feed on Facebook, and that's fixed.

If you're on the Edge Canary channel, which is updated daily, that is now on Chromium version 76. Unfortunately, there's no changelog for that one.
