Microsoft Edge 96 is now rolling out to users on Windows, Linux, and macOS. This is a Stable channel release of the latest version, bringing Microsoft’s web browser up-to-date with a number of interesting new features.
For example, there is now an integrated Office file viewer to make it easier to open documents directly within Microsoft Edge. Elsewhere, Edge has now become the default PDF viewer for Windows 11 and Windows 10.
Microsoft Edge 96 improves the integration, including the introduction of freeform highlighters to the viewer. Furthermore, the web browser is getting a new Dictionary that is embedded in the toolbar within the Immersive Reader.
There is also a Math Solver tool, which first landed in preview earlier this year. Math Solver works by the student taking a photo of a math problem (hand-written or printed) and Edge will read the image and provide a solution. It will also show how the answer is built with instructions. Yes, Microsoft Edge will now do your math homework for you.
Users are also able to type problems, while other features include video tutorials, quizzes, and worksheets.
Another interesting addition in Microsoft Edge 96 is the ability to launch Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) through protocol links. This means they behave more like native apps, something Microsoft has been pushing towards.
