Today we delivered build 18.104.22.168 to the Dev channel. This release chiefly contains changes from Chromium 75, but does contain two notable bug fixes as well:
As always, let us know if you encounter any issues with this build. Thanks for being an insider, and see you next week.

@David Rubino Hi! Does not switch the interface language to Russian, though added. The selection window is inactive (seen in the screenshot).
And how can I change the default search engine, for example - on Yandex?

@NicolSD Thanks for that tip. I was trying to figure out how to do this. Nice to have but it could be more obvious. It seems to me it warrants a separate link for Search Engine rather than being buried under address bar. Maybe not. I guess now that I know where to find it i will probably never change it anyway. :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Bill, it's, already, here. And you can do it 3 ways, albeit, all using drag & drop. (1) use the Fav Bar within the browser. Grab & move where you want; includes or also, applies to items in 'extended' listings (via >). OR (2) > ... > Favorites and do the grab & move with that list (this one and 3 are good if Favs Bar is off as they don't necessitate turning Favs Bar on). OR (3) is shown below; please, note the highlighted path & K/B shortcut. Here, again, just grab & move.

Certainly, mindful of the 'Rome wasn't built in a day' aspect, but, there sure is a lot missing, still, at this point. Much of what exists, now, is ok, but, the distraction of all that's missing bothers & concerns Folks. Easy to see the same few items mentioned & craved repeatedly. Having the stuff back in is extremely imperative & critical/crucial.
That said, I will take this opportunity to give you a couple of items:
Leaving where you are & being switched to a separate new & different page for things in ... instead of using panels or a fly-out is completely & absolutely, wrong, unacceptable, silly (Read: crazy) as all heck & counter-productive/inefficient; have to stay immersed in & looking at the site you are using! And, in ... having Pin to Desktop is rather silly. However, what DOES need/MUST be there is Pin to Taskbar!
Edge C's behavior when using multiple desktops MUST BE fixed straight-away. The concept is unworkable w/ Edge C until & unless this is fixed.
The known issue of Edge C not opening to its assigned page after the initial time HOPEFULLY will be corrected, soon.
All the extensions that we, already, use & want, that are familiar & appealing, should be in the Microsoft Store, all of them! (Mouse gestures, Translator, Adblocker Ultimate, Print Friendly & PDF, et al). "One-stop shopping" is a must.

I have had it, now. Still, do LOL See, it made me spell thos right ;)
Actually, thos does have a squiggly red line under it :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:
Interestingly enough, so does Ecto :thinking_face: Hmmm

Nicol is correct.
There will not be 'global' regions or languages in beta Builds. Whether an OS, browser or other, it is something that is added in the latter stages of development. Some may, even, continue to be added after a release, in some cases. President suggests all the languages & regions ultimately supported likely will not all be added simultaneously. It is inappropriate & untimely to submit this as a bug.
05-05-2019 02:37 PM
Yes, & then you search somewhere not, even, aware that (that) search engine you happened to be using was added to your list of engines. I, actually, laughed a bit when I saw something like Twitter listed... what? Huh? I didn't add that... nano second later, recalled looking for something in Twitter's search box sometime & voila, explained.

@David Rubino eagerly awaiting when I will be able to create a profile with my corporate profile (O365 login). Cheers!
May I bring to your attention, that there are some longstanding issues on the Microsoft Flow editing UI that manifest on Chrome only - that may be a Flow UI bug, or a chrome bug - they are corner cases where in some actions the Flow being edited disapears and the window gets blank (gray), requiring a refresh.
This post has links to several other forum topics on similar occurrences:

Hi @David Rubino,
I cannot find the flag "Save Page as MHTML" in latest dev build 22.214.171.124. I could enable it in the previous build but this option is not available now when saving web pages in this dev build. Where can I enable it again?
I think this is useful so I want to keep it in Edge.

I have the same issue but I suspect it needs a particular port open which may be commonly blocked. If you can find out which port(s) are used in sync, I can experiment. (I'm behind a new DOCSIS modem/router and it may be set too restrictive...)

@eakart Just follow these steps: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Discussions/Search-Engines/m-p/449637

Built-in VPN would be a nice addition.
Even if it is not a native VPN like Opera offers, a feature to select, activate and deactivate a Windows VPN configuration from within the browser would be useful.

Same here. I updated to 126.96.36.199 today, in the dev channel, but that MHTML flag is still not there.

@David Rubino -- #autoplay policy doesn't seem to be working consistently. I've set it to "Document user activation is required" but still get content playing sound on the page w/o my interaction. It's a mixed bag as some content will play w/o sound but others just crank right through the speakers. Sure will this feature would work as a "mute all;all the time".

Recently ran into problem with saved password pulling passwords. Kind think when sight ask to reset the password when approved etc it wasn't updating existing old file. I think it was pulling from old Chrome file. Once I shut it off the password file it corrected the problem.

@David Rubino I've been using Edge Insider (Dev channel) as my daily driver since it went public. I've even disabled Chrome on my Galaxy Note 8 and Tab S2 to allow the syncing between my tablet, phone, Desktop, and Surface Pro. So far, I haven't run into any issues. I consider myself, as a the average web browser user.
Some of the things I've noticed:
Edge seems to start quicker than Chrome
Pages render rather quickly (although I haven't actually timed them).
Edge uses less resources (considerably less), than Chrome, which is one of the more important things, to me at least.
It is stable. It crashed once or twice when I first started using it, but it's been stable throughout.
Overall, it's been running great and Microsoft is definitely going in the right direction.

Please put in the option to sort favorites by name. I would also like to see the download interface be what it is in IE and Classic Edge and not the one that Chrome has that I have always hated.
