Hello Insiders! Today we’re releasing build 97.0.1072.8 to the Dev channel, and as we mentioned last week, this is the final build for Dev 97, give or take a few small patches. However, due to the holidays, it will still be a couple of weeks before this moves to Beta. Additionally, this is our last post for the year. There will still be Dev releases in December, but there won’t be any accompanying release notes.

As for what’s new in the browser this week:
Thanks for sticking with us over the past year, and happy holidays!

We’re excited to announce a partnership with ZIP that will let you use Edge for shopping and then split up the payments over a period of time. You can read more about it here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/articles/introducing-buy-now-pay-later-in-microsoft-edge/m-p/....
Please don't. Why add a feature that isn't even usable for a majority of regions? Please reconsider this.

@josh_bodner This update made my Edge Dev browser completely unusable on my Windows Server 2016 machine. It doesn't load any content from any page (it keeps "Loading..." forever, and the new page tab that usually has news is completely blank), and even trying to submit feedback doesn't work (the window doesn't open). The only things I can do is open the settings, but I tried fiddling with them and nothing happened. Any clues on what could be happening?

@josh_bodner Triple click selection, copying, and more are still seriously broken when "Mini menu on text selection" is enabled. Beyond that, the UI to disable it on selected sites is also broken. The Add button opens the following. The bug is that the format "[*.]example.com" doesn't work. I didn't experiment but I don't believe wildcards work at all. Given the list of pre-configured sites for which it is disabled such as "office.com", I suspect that there is an implied "[*.]" for all entries which itself is a poor idea not only for the inconsistency but for the inability to not include subdomains.
In addition to the dev build, it is still broken in 98.0.1081.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit).
