The latest weekly Edge Dev update is here with a long list of new features and fixes. Edge Dev 111.0.1619.2 adds password import from CSV files, better protections against third-party apps hijacking your browser settings, a better ad blocking experience on iOS, and more.

On a side note, Microsoft also released a small patch for Edge 109 in the Stable Channel, fixing a broken print UI on systems with special characters in printer names. Affected users should update to Edge 109.0.1518.61 to resolve this issue.

As an online publication, Neowin also relies on advertising for operating costs, and if you use an ad blocker, we would appreciate being whitelisted. Plus, we have an ad-free subscription for $28 a year, which is another way to show support!
