Microsoft Edge Version 102 is Now Available

Posted on June 1, 2022 by Laurent Giret in Cloud, Microsoft Edge, Web browsers with 4 Comments

The version 102 of Microsoft’s Edge browser has started to roll out on Windows, macOS, and Linux yesterday. It follows the release of Google Chrome version 102 to the Stable channel last week.

Microsoft Edge version 102 brings some policy updates and PDF improvements, but there are no new big new features this time around. Edge is the default PDF viewer on Windows 10 and Windows 11, and this release brings PDF support for JavaScript and XML Forms Architecture (XFA) based forms.

Microsoft is also getting ready to retire Internet Explorer for good on June 15, 2022. The company recommends enterprise users who still rely on Internet Explorer to use the Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge, which will be supported at least through 2029.

In other Edge-related news, a new survey by Atlas VPN revealed that Microsoft Edge is now the third most popular web browser with over 212 million users accross desktop and mobile. Google Chrome remains first with over 3.3 billion users, while Apple Safari just became the second web browser to cross the one billion users mark.

    For Chrome, that should be 3.3 billion users, correct?

    So we aren’t getting pdf thumbnails on Windows unless we use Adobe? Can’t stand Adobe and would rather it wasn’t cluttering up my system. I prefer the ease of signing and marking up documents with my ProX pen in Edge.

    Sadly the XFA support seems to be rather limited right now. Good to see them working on it though as I'd rather be able to use just WebView 2 instead of IE mode with an Adobe plugin.
