Edge Dev 103.0.1253.0 Adds Natural Language Search

It’s just a few days ago, but Microsoft released a new version of Edge Dev to the insiders on the Dev Channel.

The update comes with a small number of changes, but one of them stands out. Now you have the ability to search in the History popup using natural language (for example, “YouTube from last week”). This is a nice and handy feature!

For the rest, it is not really interesting in the case of the average user.

Changelog for Edge Dev 103.0.1253.0

Added Features

  • Added the ability to pin PWA/websites installed as apps to the taskbar from their … menus.
  • Enabled by default is the ability to search in the History popup using natural language (for example, “YouTube from last week”).
  • Added a management policy to set the Internet Explorer mode Zoom Display type, which controls if the browser’s zoom level takes into account the current display scale-like IE used to (for example, if display scaling is set to 150%, then IE’s default zoom level would show 150%).  Note that updates to documentation and administrative templates may not have occurred yet.
