In the blog post Chrome 96.0.4664.45 I had reported on the November 15 update and the security vulnerabilities that were fixed. In the release notes for the Edge browser, there is information that Edge 96.0.1054.29 fixes the following three vulnerabilities. 

The numerous new features in Edge 96.0.1054.29 are described on this Microsoft page. There are some improvements especially for enterprise environments. The browser should be updated automatically, but can also be downloaded here.

It is unclear to me whether the problems described for the Chrome browser (Google Chrome 96: Issues with Twitter, Discord, Video and more) also occur with Edge.

Below is the security information from Microsoft, which I received via email while writing this post.

One Response to Edge 96.0.1054.29

  1. EP says:

    IE mode is more accessible in Edge 96 by enabling the "internet explorer mode button" in the "edge://settings/appearance" section (though this option requires the "Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer mode" option to be enabled first before turning on the IE mode button on the toolbar)

    no more needing some group policies to enable the IE mode options like I did with past MS Edge versions
