In 2022, Microsoft releases the final Edge Dev update with a number of new Sidebar features.

A new update is available for download in the Dev Channel for Edge insiders testing preview builds of the browser. The Edge Sidebar now has a number of new features, and version 110.0.1556.0 also includes the customary long list of bugfixes, small enhancements, and other updates.

The highlight of the most recent release is updates for the Sidebar functionality, which was just released. The Sidebar may now be resized, push notifications can be enabled or disabled, websites can be muted or unmuted, and search is available.

Additionally, according to Microsoft, this is the final feature update for the browser to be released on the Dev Channel in 2022. Once the holiday season is over, the business will keep releasing weekly reports.

The absence of a list of known flaws in the update from Microsoft does not imply that there are no problems. Keep in mind that Edge Dev is less reliable than the version intended for general release, and Microsoft does not advise using it as your primary browser (the company provides support only for Edge Stable and Edge Beta).

From the official website, you may download Microsoft Edge Dev 110 for Windows (10 and 11), macOS, Linux, and Android.
