Current release for Windows Insider Preview (Slow)Desktop
Release date: 07/11/2018
New Microsoft Edge features
Per-site media autoplay controls: You can now control autoplay permissions on a per-site basis under the “Website permission” section of the Website Identification pane – just click the information icon or lock icon on the left side of the address bar and click “manage permissions” to get started.
Lookup definitions for words in Reading View, Books, and PDFs: We’ve added a new dictionary function, so you can look up definitions for key words when reading a page or document. Simply select a single word to see the definition appear above your selection.
You can choose to have a word read aloud to you to hear the correct pronunciation or expand more details from the definition. You can toggle whether definitions appear and which types of content they work in under the “General” tab of the Microsoft Edge settings menu.
Improved PDF toolbar: The PDF toolbar now shows text descriptions for icons, and adds options like “Add notes” to improve the discoverability of these tools. The toolbar can now be pinned to the top of the window when working with a document.
