Microsoft Edge will soon have new features. The browser should have a feature that makes it easier for the browser to picture-in-picture (PiP) and other upcoming features.
Microsoft recently introduced Picture-in-Picture, which allows users to play a video in a floating window to track content while navigating other tabs. The tool will appear on the surface of any video when the user hovers over it, and can be disabled by right-clicking on the “hide” option.
However, when the picture-in-picture feature is hidden, it “disappears” forever, as Edge does not offer the option to re-enable the tool in settings, even if the user restarts the browser.
That’s changing because the upcoming Edge update will give users better control over picture-in-picture mode with the appropriate switch to enable and disable the feature. Based on an unpublished update from Microsoft, your browser will receive a key – to turn the PiP button on or off – the key available in Settings.
Microsoft recently introduced the ability to automatically save passwords in Edge. This allows users to save passwords automatically without having to fill them in all the time.
The new feature is optional and is not enabled by default. To enable it, you’ll need to go to the “Passwords” tab in the “Profiles” option in Settings and select “Save passwords automatically.”
In addition, Microsoft is also working on a new feature that makes it easier to pause or enable all extensions using the shortcut that appears in the “Extensions” option in the top bar of your browser. The tool – still in the testing phase – makes it easier to close plug-ins when users need to access pages that require sensitive information to ensure that third-party add-ons do not access the data.
