Microsoft is testing a built-in crypto wallet in Microsoft Edge
Microsoft is working on a non-custodial built-in Ethereum crypto wallet for Microsoft Edge to allow users to send and receive cryptocurrency and NFTs.

Public keys can be shared with others to receive payments, while private keys should be kept secret and can be used to authorize transactions when you want to spend your cryptocurrency.

Microsoft sleuth Albacore who first spotted the new Edge Crypto Wallet tweeted some screenshots and expressed his puzzlement about the possibility of it ending up as a new Microsoft Edge feature.

It is not yet rolling out to Insiders, and it's most likely only available to Microsoft Edge Dev Channel users as part of a very limited test phase.

Microsoft is working to restore the recently removed Mica effect from its browser. Before version 111, Edge allowed users to enable "eye candy" on the tab strip, making it slightly translucent and colorful (the strength of the effect would depend on the wallpaper). Although Microsoft has not explained why it removed Mica from Edge, it appears the effect may soon return in an improved form.

u/Leopeva64-2 spotted the new Mica variant in the latest Microsoft Edge Canary builds. The browser applies the effect to its entire page, including the toolbar and sidebar, creating a more unique and beautiful design. The implementation is currently very buggy and undercooked—it randomly disappears and leaves parts of the UI with the old solid background. Unfortunately, there is no way to enable it manually, so Edge Insiders must wait for the company to start rolling out the change once it gets more stable.

As most users probably know this option "Block" is ready to enable since long time via settings flags...
Microsoft Edge once had a one-click solution for auto-playing videos, allowing you to block this bane of the modern internet without third-party extensions. Later, Microsoft removed the "Block" option, leaving only "Allow" and "Limit" variants available by default. Now the company is getting ready to restore the missing option—Microsoft has announced that Edge Insiders in the Canary Channel can try the new old setting in the latest builds.

You can block media autoplay in Microsoft Edge by heading to edge://settings/content/mediaAutoplay and selecting Block from the drop-down. Alternatively, go to Settings > Cookies and Site Permissions > Media Autoplay. The restored feature is rolling out gradually to Canary users, so it may take a few days to appear on your computer.

I thought they had this already in the past. But anyway, still looks worse than Firefox's Autoplay function where it's possible to also block audio only.

Microsoft is finally beginning to add support for AVIF format to Edge. AVIF or AV1 Image File Format is an image encoding based on the AV1 video codec, and just like the AV1 codec, AVIF is said to deliver more efficient encoding compared to other more common image formats. For example, Vimeo found that AVIF received higher Video Multimethod Assessment Fusion (VMAF) score compared to WebP and JPEG.

Microsoft is testing a new feature for its browser in the Canary Channel, which will make many users happy. The company wants to let customers disable non-essential parts of Microsoft Edge to make the browser run faster and deliver a less cluttered experience.

The option for toggling on or off different features in Microsoft Edge is rolling out to some users in the Canary Channel as a part of the so-called Controlled Feature Rollout. Those with a lucky ticket can disable optional components by heading to Settings > Optional Features or the edge://settings/optionalFeatures link.

In a nutshell, optional features in Microsoft Edge work the same as those in Windows 10 and 11. Here is how Microsoft describes the latest addition:
"Microsoft Edge now lets you turn off optional browser features so as to make it the fastest browsing experience for you. Features that are turned off are still available to you but will require a small download to enable."

Edge 117 adds EPUB support
The latest Microsoft Edge Canary release, version 117.0.1989.0, adds EPUB support, allowing customers to open and read EPUB documents in Microsoft Edge. The initial EPUB support is raw and limited, hardly surprising to those using Canary builds. You can open and browse books, check their tables of contents, and bookmark pages.
