Microsoft recently rolled out an update that brings the browser to version 99.0.1150.30, Edge 99, which brings some new features such as custom passwords for autofill, improved PDF navigation, and much more.
To begin with, Microsoft Edge 99 gives the ability to personalize multi-profile experiences with profile preferences for sites. Users who have multiple profiles can create a customized list of sites for auto-switching between different user profiles.
Further, users can now navigate through their PDF document using thumbnails that represent the pages. These thumbnails will appear in the pane on the left side of the PDF reader, which allows users to easily find what they are looking for on a PDF.

Another addition is the ability to configure a list of domains (HTTP/ HTTPS schemas and hostnames only) where Microsoft Edge can disable the password manager using the PasswordManagerBlocklist policy. This means that passwords for those websites won’t be saved or auto-filled into web forms.
Lastly, the custom primary password feature will allow users to be able to use a custom string of their choice as their primary password. After it’s enabled, users will enter this password to authenticate themselves and have their saved passwords auto-filled into web forms.
Starting with Microsoft Edge 97, site owners can test this upcoming agent string by enabling the #force-major-version-to-100 experiment flag in edge://flags to ensure their User-Agent parsing logic is robust and works as expected,” the company said in its Docs page.
Microsoft has started rolling out the new Edge 99 update to stable users. In case Edge is not installing for you, go to Edge’s settings menu, click on Help and Feedback > About Microsoft Edge to check the latest update.
