Microsoft has pushed out a new version 188.8.131.52 for the Chromium-based Edge browser. This version grants you Pin Sites to the Taskbar on Edge Chromium which is one of the most impressive features available with the browser. As per the company, this advancement will create better web compatibility for customers and less fragmentation for web developers.
With build 184.108.40.206, the company adds two new features to the browser. If we address the first one, this is pin sites that enable its users to add their most visited websites to the taskbar for faster access. Another new feature is the ability to launch web sites in the Internet Explorer mode. Although, it is disabled by default you can make it enable with a flag which we have discussed below.
