Feature update

  • New Immersive Reader policies. Immersive Reader in Microsoft Edge simplifies web page layouts, removes clutter, and helps you customize your reading experience. Using these new policies (ImmersiveReaderGrammarToolsEnabled and ImmersiveReaderPictureDictionaryEnabled), administrators can control the availability of Grammar Tools and Picture Dictionary features within Immersive Reader.

  • Enabling sync for Azure Active Directory signed in customers. Microsoft Edge sync roams data across all signed in instances of Microsoft Edge. This data includes favorites, passwords, browsing history, open tabs, settings, apps, collections, and extensions.  For Azure Active Directory users who have sync turned off, after the browser is launched they'll see a notification prompt and have sync turned on for all signed in instances of Microsoft Edge. This sync enablement includes other devices where they're signed in. Additionally, if a user’s other devices don’t have history and open tabs sync on, those two toggles will be turned on.  Organizations using the SyncDisabled policy won't be affected by this change.

  • In-browser JSON viewer. Improvements to how JSON files are displayed in the browser include a color-coded tree view with line numbers and the ability to collapse and expand the data. This functionality will trigger automatically when the browser navigates to a JSON file on the web or the user opens a local file. Additional features and enhancements will roll out when they're available. For more information and to provide feedback, visit DevTools: In-browser JSON viewer.

  • Split Screen. This feature lets you browse faster with side by side tabs. Boost your productivity with two tabs side-by-side in one browser window. With split screen you can multitask without losing focus. Users can access Split Screen by clicking the toolbar icon or by selecting "Open link in split window" in the context menu. Note: This feature is a controlled feature rollout. If you don't see this feature, check back as we continue our rollout.
