While Microsoft updates Edge browser every six weeks, which typically is a day or two after Google's Chrome update for the same version number, the company has also patched about 19 security vulnerabilities, with the most serious marked as "High" and the second level in a four-step ranking system.
Another major feature is the Edge's new tab page, which Microsoft had touted as enterprise-centric, having connections with workers' Office 365 or Microsoft 365 accounts. The company has advanced the tab page emphasis in Edge 87 to fully blend with the 365 elements with personalized, and work-relevant feeds.
Edge 87 New tab page Customizations
Edge 87 now blends the 365 elements with "personalized, work-relevant company and industry feeds" and users can easily customize the "My Feed" display with relevant content from public resources and from selected areas by the IT administrator.
Though users are able to customize the new tab page's content feed by selecting from a number of sources, but the IT admins have much bigger power, as they can lock-in industry-specific news or display the organization's internal news only. The customization by the user is a straight-forward process if the IT personnels did not choose any industry or point to internally-generated news from the company.
And IT admins also have group policies they can assign to configure both the new feed and the auto-redirection of URLs from IE to Edge, which three policies have been outlined by Microsoft in its support document.
How to Download or Upgrade to Edge 87
Although, Microsoft Edge updates automatically in the background, users can also force an upgrade by navigating to the "About Microsoft Edge" page and from the Help and Feedback menu; the resulting tab will show if the browser has been updated or displays the download process before presenting a "Restart" button.
And those who are new to Edge can manually download Edge 87 for Windows or macOS from the official website. With the Linux version available in Dev Channel form from the Insider website, and the iOS and Android versions can be found in the App Store and Google Play, respectively.
