Microsoft Edge: Here’s What’s NewRIP: Spartan branding.

Yesterday, Microsoft has released a new developer preview build (10158) for the PC, which includes a lot of new Edge feature and improvements. However, even though we have reported some of them (thanks to the leaks), here is the complete and official list on the changes that have been made since the most recent official release.

So what exactly is new and available for the immediate testing?

– Background audio playback
– Tabs can now be dragged and dropped to a new window
– You can now have a Home button via Settings > Advanced Settings and turn on “Show the home button”
– The ability for you to import favorites/bookmarks from other browsers into Microsoft Edge
– There are new options for changing what you see when you first start Microsoft Edge
– There are new customizations for the New Tab page. You can choose to either see top sites and suggested content or just top sites.
– Password and form-fill support. Microsoft Edge now lets you manage your passwords for your favorite websites
– You can now choose a Light or Dark theme
– Web Notes can now be saved to One Note
– Reading Lists now appear on the New Tab Page

It should be also noted that there is one issue for those using locale setting other than en-US, about:flags might not be accessible, so in case you do need it, be sure to change it to the US.

As far as Windows 10 Mobile version goes, video and audio background playback is finally here!
