What’s in the latest Edge update? Password monitor and vertical tabs
Microsoft’s Edge 88, last week released, boasts major improvements to its password manager and debuted new tab features, including vertical tabs — something Chrome has yet to offer.
The Redmond, Wash. company also patched at least 24 security vulnerabilities, the most serious marked as “High,” the second level in a four-step ranking system. Google’s Chrome 88, which like Edge was built on the open-source Chromium project, included fixes for 36 flaws when it was released Jan. 19.
(Note: Starting Jan. 21, the day Microsoft delivered Edge 88, it began “…releasing the Chrome CVEs that are included in the new releases of Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) directly in the Security Update Guide.” For more information on what that meant, steer to this explanation.)
