Hello Insiders! Today we’re releasing build 85.0.545.0 to the Dev channel. We’ve got quite a few things to mention this week:
As for everything new in the browser:
As always, everything we do is made possibly by you!

In my understanding every GPO related to MS Edge Chromium is interpreted by all editions in the same way. The configuration of Edge is done for all our users and systems solely by GPO in AD.
We are using an 2FA authorisation service for several insurance company extranet websites that behaves different in Edge Chromium Enterprise Stable 83.0.478.45 in comparison to Edge Chromium Enterprise Dev 85.0.545.0.
In Stable its working, in Dev is not anymore. In fact, this is not the first version of Dev with this behavior. First reports came in a few weeks ago.
The login page is at https://www.einfach-einmal-einloggen.de/ and relays the user after successful authorization to the URL https://portal.easy-login.de/auth-portal/easy-login/secure/linklist.xhtml by opening a new tab.
In Dev this tab is not opened and no message appears in any way. For sure its not a popup blocker case because we made a exception entry for this domain.
Big question, is it a bug or a feature that will go over to Stable after a few weeks if it's not configured correctly?
Good job so far, we happily replaced Google Chrome on all our systems!

@Thomas_Gessert it's hard to say without a little more investigation what could have caused the difference. I'd recommend opening a support ticket (... > Help and feedback > Help) so our support agents can look into it further.

@josh_bodnerWhere is tablet mode support! Don't roll it out with Windows Update before it has native controls and native behaviors(like quit full screen mode behavior) and have full support for tablet mode! You guys keep abanding a lot of features that you think nobody use. But because this is Windows so any features will have a lot of users then you think. Especially you guys still sell Surface so make it use WinUI in windows and support Tablet mode thank you! I don't care any cross-platform staff, you guys need to make Edge as a part of windows as you can. Not a third party app.

@KangHongjia what features specifically are you missing? When it comes to fullscreen, for example, we're working on adding in the ability to swipe down from the top of the screen on a touchscreen device in order to show the tabs and address bar.

@josh_bodner -- why does this new version crash on closing? I get a stopped responding message then when opening Edge DEV again it asks to restore tabs. This has happened since this version of the browser. Can I check somewhere in the browser to see what is causing it?

@Chris Childerhose edge://crashes should list your recent crashes, although it won't tell you why Edge is crashing. Crashes when it closes are especially difficult to try to diagnose since they often aren't directly caused by the act of closing the browser, but instead are tripping up on some memory corruption that happened far earlier. The only crash I'm aware of right now that happens when closing Edge is a relatively uncommon crash that's directly caused by closing a tab, but the timing to trigger it is very tight, so I'd be surprised if that was what you were hitting, especially if you've seen multiple crashes. There are quite a few other crashes set to be fixed in this week's upcoming Dev build though, so it would be interesting to see if any of them fix your issue.

I still don't understand. I can have two different pdfs side by side by dragging and dropping tabs to create two different windows.
See the first attachment: on the left is math homework and on the right is a D&D character sheet.
If you're talking about seeing multiple pages of the same PDF side by side, then I agree that this is a feature of Edge Legacy that is lacking in Edge Chromium. See the second attachment.
