Microsoft has maintained a feature roadmap for Edge since shortly after its public release last January, but now it’s making that roadmap more visible to the public.
“We have been working on improving the [Edge] release notes and will continue to investigate changes that we can make to be more immediate and descriptive,” Microsoft’s Elliot Kirk writes in a Tech Community blog post. “For the roadmap, we are happy to announce that in addition to the Enterprise focused roadmap we have revamped the What’s Next page on our insider website.”
The Enterprise-focused roadmap is available as part of the broader Microsoft 365 roadmap, and it outlines 7 features that are currently in development, including kiosk mode privacy features, single sign-on for Microsoft accounts on Mac, people and bookmark suggestions via Microsoft Search in the address bar and new tab search box, and more.
But the new What’s Next page for Edge is perhaps of more interest. Here, you can find a feature roadmap describing a long list of features that Microsoft plans to implement throughout at least the first half of 2021.
For example, Edge version 89—the current version is 88—will add the ability to manage extensions from the address bar, improvements to text selections in PDFs, more page scrolling options for printing, clipboard-based autofill suggestions, and more. And Edge version 90 will support a “Current page” option for printing PDFs, improvements to font rendering, user-initiated search for autofill suggestions, and more.
Microsoft says that it will update the Edge roadmap as each new Beta version is released.
