Microsoft Edge 87 is now available with new features

Microsoft Edge 87 update is now available for download on
Windows and macOS, and the update is right on schedule.
Microsoft Edge 87.0.664.41 started rolling out to users in the
Stable channel on November 19 and it comes with new features
for everyone.

In Edge 87, Microsoft is introducing a new shopping experience
that will allow you to compare prices online without any
third-party extension. In addition, you can even apply coupons
to buy products at a discounted rate during this holiday
season.

This update also comes with a bunch of PDF improvements. For
example, Microsoft says it has improved PDF scrolling and you
can now access Table of contents easily when available or
supported in the document.

Privacy feature

For enterprises, Microsoft is introducing kiosk mode features
that will give businesses greater control over the privacy of
their users. For example, companies can now use kiosk mode to
clear data on exit and delete files automatically if they were
downloaded by the user.

Edge can now be configured to reset the first-run experience in
an enterprise environment.

Microsoft has also enabled support for TLS Token Binding for
policy-configured sites to block cookies from being reused
across your devices.

Shopping features

As we mentioned above, Microsoft Edge 87 update is all about
shopping. Since online shopping is likely to increase in the
coming days, Microsoft Edge has been updated with a new price
comparison tool and you can access this feature by adding pages
to the Collections tab.

The price comparison tool is available in Edge for a while now
and the experience is now getting even better with a new
feature that will bring down product prices across various
platforms using coupons.

Microsoft Edge coupons tool

Microsoft Edge is using Bing’s new shopping capabilities to
crawl the web and extract the relevant coupon code. You’ll be
able to access the available coupons from a new coupon menu
that will appear automatically when you visit an eligible
online store.

Currently, the
coupon-finding feature is available on popular online stores
only and it works best in the United States, but it’s
possible that it will be extended to more sites in future.

Printing via Edge gets better

Microsoft Edge will allow users to choose the side that will
flip when printing on both sides. For example, users can now
choose between the long or short side of a sheet when they’re
printing the content on both sides of the sheet.

Other improvements

Microsoft Edge 87 also comes with these improvements:

  • Table of Content is supported.
  • PDF reading experience optimized for small screens.
  • You can now highlight points in a document using a pen.
  • PDF scrolling is now smooth.
  • DNS (DNS-over-HTTPS) Support.

How to get the update

Typically, Microsoft Edge will be updated in the background
automatically. If you haven’t received the update yet and you
want it right now, simply open Edge and head to Settings ->
About Microsoft Edge to manually update your browser.
