    Microsoft Edge for Windows 10 gets new features in latest update


    Microsoft has rolled out a new build of Chromium-based Edge Dev with several new features and improvements. A new update for Edge Canary is also available with themes setting and media autoplay block experimental flag.

    Microsoft Edge Dev Build 77.0.211.2 adds a new feature that allows the browser to read the contents in PDFs aloud. The classic Edge browser also shipped with read aloud for PDFs and it’s finally part of the new Edge browser to offer an advanced PDF reading experience.

    Microsoft is also enabling the secure receipt of payment card data and application reputation from SmartScreen.

    The update introduces support for HEVC (High-efficiency video coding) decoder and enables Windows Defender Application Guard by default. Microsoft has also added a new recent category to the History page.

    Nifty improvements


    Chromium-based Edge supports extensions from Microsoft Store and as well as Google Chrome Web Store. After today’s update, the browser can now sort extensions from Microsoft Store and other stores (Chrome Store).

    You can save pages as MHTML from Edge’s reading view and you can also view DRM content in PDF.

    It’s worth noting that Dev branch is updated weekly, and new features are shipped to the Canary branch regularly.

    Edge Canary gets a new theme setting

    Microsoft Edge Canary has been updated with a new theme setting that allows users to manually choose light or dark theme, regardless of Windows 10’s system settings.

    You can change the theme in Microsoft Edge from Menu > Settings > Appearance and Theme.

    Finally, Edge Canary now comes with a new experimental flag ‘Limit media autoplay’ that should block videos from auto-playing on some websites.

    Microsoft is developing a built-in ad blocker for its Edge browser

    "One of the first browser add-ons many people install to improve their online experience is Adblock Plus or something similar. Until recently, Microsoft Edge's lack of support for add-ons put off a lot of would-be users, but reports from Build 2016 suggest that native ad blocking is on its way to the Internet Explorer successor.

    Adblock Plus is coming to Edge, but built-in ad blocking would negate the need for such an add-on. A slide shown off and snapped at a Build presentation shows that the next version of Edge, in response to user feedback, will feature ad blocking capabilities. There's no word on delivery timescale, but the upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary Update would seem a likely candidate.

    ZDNet's Ed Bott photographed the slide which shows Microsoft's development roadmap built around feedback from testers. Right at the top of the list is reference to plans to create a plugin and extension store for Edge, but it's entry number four that's more intriguing.

    "Build ad blocking features into the browser" is listed as a Feature Request from users. But the good news is that it is not only listed as being "Deliverable 4682811", but as "Targeted for the next version".

    This will no doubt come as good news for those who have fallen in love with Edge, but it's not something that will be welcomed by the likes of Adblock Plus. It does seem that, particularly in the mobile arena, there is a move to baking ad blocking into the browser so it makes sense that Microsoft is following the trend. But it is the fact that Edge straddles Windows 10 on the desktop and Windows 10 Mobile that makes this a particularly interesting move.

    Keep an eye out for Insider builds in the coming weeks as the feature may be just around the corner.
    "

    Forget extensions, built-in ad blocking is coming to Microsoft Edge - [UPDATE... no it's not!]

    Microsoft to make Windows 10 updates mandatory

    Well, at the moment at least, you can choose to defer upgrades. Under Settings > Windows Updates > Advanced options you need to check the box labeled "Defer upgrades". What does that do? Good question. The answer I've found might illuminate it to a degree.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/defer-upgrades-in-windows-10

    I hear this only applies to Pro and Enterprise editions. But I can't verify that.
