Microsoft Edge is getting a new download manager

Microsoft Edge downloads manager

Downloading files using Google Chrome or Edge’s download
manager has always been a fairly simple experience, and even
today slow servers can make downloading big files a real pain.
Fortunately, Microsoft appears to be working on a new download
manager for Chromium Edge, which could be released later this
year.

In an upcoming version of Microsoft Edge, a new menu will
appear in the toolbar when you download files. This will allow
you to manage your downloads from the toolbar, so you can
easily monitor the overall download progress.

The menu will disappear automatically and you’ll be able to
view your downloads from the downloads page.

You can simply click on the downloads button and you can always
hover over or right-click on files to access options, such as
‘pause’, ‘restart’, or ‘cancel’. As you can see in the below
screenshot, you can click on ‘See more’ button to open the
downloads page and manage your past downloads.

In addition to the downloads manager,
Microsoft also appears to be working on new toolbar
experience for Collections, History and Favorites.

Other improvements coming to Microsoft Edge

In another Chromium commit, Microsoft noted that it’s planning
to enable D3D11 with MediaFoundation for Video Capture on
Windows.

The VideoCaptureDeviceFactoryWin implementation has also been
wired up to read the feature flag state and this will allow the
browser to leverage D3D11 for video capture.

Likewise, Microsoft says that it has been working on
improvements for the inking experience when using Edge browser.
This will allow you to make better use of a stylus on PDFs and
other areas.

There are plans to address a bug where the inking on PDF
documents feels jittery and is not smooth enough. For tablet
users, Edge will be getting a new UI element that will show up
on PDFs and web captures when your device supports touch.
