After Google Chrome arrived at version 100.0, the Microsoft Edge browser is now also available in version v100.0. This update to the Microsoft Edge stable channel mainly incorporates new features that have been tested for some time before, including hardware-based mandatory stack protection, simplified calling protocols for Microsoft 365 series products, PDF support for signature verification, and calling WebView in Outlook to preview PDFs documents, etc.
These features have been tested so there are basically no known issues. The PDF signature verification feature should work well for office users without the need to download an additional PDF reader or install additional plugins in Microsoft Edge.
Hardware-enforced stack protection is a security feature that Microsoft uses to address potential security issues such as memory corruption vulnerabilities. Microsoft has complained that the Chromium v8 engine has had too many vulnerabilities before, so Microsoft is gradually replacing and installing additional security features. Of course, this may have a slight impact on performance, which requires Microsoft to optimize by collecting data in the future.
Another thing that needs to be mentioned is the PDF preview function. This feature supports previewing PDF files in Outlook mail client and File Explorer, which should be enough as a lightweight reader.
Users of the Microsoft Edge browser should go to the About page to check for updates. In addition, based on the 3-digit UA upgrade, some websites may appear abnormal when loading. The probability of this happening is extremely low, but if users encounter it, they can submit feedback to the website administrator.
