Current release for Windows Insider Preview (Fast)Desktop
Release date: 01/11/2018
New Microsoft Edge features
Autofill card information on web forms: Microsoft Edge can now save and automatically fill your card information on payment web forms. On submission of a form with card information, Microsoft Edge will prompt you to save card information. In the future, you can simply select the preferred card from a drop-down menu to autofill necessary fields. Microsoft Edge securely saves your card information. CVV information is never saved. All cards linked to your Microsoft Account are also made available for automatically filling card information.
Exclude domains from saving passwords: You can now disable saved passwords on a per-site basis. When prompted for permission to save passwords, you can now choose “never” on these sites.
Autofill passwords when InPrivate: You can now autofill saved passwords when browsing in an InPrivate window. No user credentials will be saved or updated when the window is InPrivate.
Use Extensions when InPrivate: Extensions can now support InPrivate mode in Microsoft Edge. You can manage permissions for individual extensions to run InPrivate from the options page for each extension. We’re working with extension developers to enable more features when InPrivate.
We’ve revamped the Hub view in Microsoft Edge to show more content and to be easier and more intuitive to use. You’ll now find the different Hub sections listed with the full name visible in the Navigation view to the left of the content. This view can be collapsed to show icons only if you prefer to save space.
New reading experience for EPUB, PDF, and Reading View: We’ve overhauled the look and feel of the reading and Books experiences in Microsoft Edge, bringing a new, consistent, more powerful experience across all your documents, whether they’re EPUB or PDF books, documents, or web pages in Reading View. You can learn more about the new capabilities and improvements over at the Windows Insider Blog.
Vertically dock the Microsoft Edge DevTools: The DevTools pane can now be docked vertically. Additional improvements to content reflowing will improve the vertical docking experience in future preview releases.

Added support for elements on HTMLFieldsetElement
Added support for relList on link elements
Added support for ping on anchor element
