Today, Microsoft Edge 90 is rolling out to the stable channel
with several new features and improvements. In version 90, you
can enable Kids mode to make the web browsing experience safer
for children. According to the company, Kids mode is designed

to “trick” and users can also use custom browser themes,
specially tailored for kids.

and ensure cookies cannot be reused from another. For
enterprise customers, there’s a new feature that will allow
admins to identify traffic coming from App Guard and apply
specific policies within the organization.
