Microsoft is working on a new version of Edge’s built-in
password manager with support for an option that will let you
add passwords manually. At the moment, if you want to save
passwords in Edge, you need to visit a new site, type your
password and then add it to the browser when prompted.
With Edge’s upcoming password manager update, you can add
passwords manually. As a result, you don’t need to visit new
sites or enter passwords or import passwords from another
It’s worth noting that the feature was first added to Chrome
Canary and Microsoft’s implementation seems to be based on the
work done by Google engineers. The new tool is already
available in Microsoft Edge Canary and can be enabled from
Profile > Saved passwords.
As you can see in the above screenshot, you will now have a new
‘Add password’ button next to the password box. Microsoft is
A/B testing the updated password manager dialog and it’s not
yet clear as to when the feature will begin rolling out to
users, but we’re expecting it in the next major Edge update.
Additionally, Google is working on a new Windows-specific
change that would benefit Chrome and Microsoft Edge. As per a
post on Chromium, a future version of Chrome or Edge will be
allowed to take the colour accent from Windows, and apply it
across different areas of the browser.
You can already apply the accent colour to the title bar and
the next update will also add the same effect to elements like
text fields, dropdown menus, button elements, etc. This feature
will be available on both Windows 10 and Windows 11.
In terms of design improvements, Google has confirmed that it
will automatically enable
rounded corners in Chrome when Windows 11 is detected.
Right now, rounded corners are disabled by default and they
need to be enabled from the flags menu.
This would change in a future release of Chrome. If you can’t
wait for rounded corners, simply enable Windows 11 style menu
flag in the flags menu (Chrome://flags). The experimental flag
was added to Chrome with version 96 and rounded corners
currently apply to the right-click menu or the main menu only.
Unlike Microsoft Edge, Chrome doesn’t support Windows 11’s Mica
material, but it’s only a matter of time before it’s enabled by
