Today Microsoft released Windows 10 Build 10122 to Windows Insider users. This new build came with a warning that Microsoft Edge will crash occasionally for AMD GPU owners them. Now Microsoft has posted some more details on what is new and improved in its Edge browser, including support for InPrivate mode,  better HTML5 support, pinning sites to Start, and much more.

Here is the full list of what is new and what is broken in the latest Microsoft Edge.

What is new?

  • HTML5 date/week/month inputs are now supported by default
  • CSS3 cursor values (zoom-in and zoom-out) are now supported
  • Preview New Tab Page now features top sites, featured apps, and curated content from MSN
  • InPrivate mode is now supported
  • Sites can now be pinned to Start
  • History view is now functional
  • Reading view icon now animates when suitable content is detected
  • Tabs now have icons to indicate when they are playing audio or recording

What is broken?

  • Full-screen content is not yet truly full-screen
  • Project Spartan may crash on devices with AMD GPUs
  • Cannot access localhost.

Note:

Microsoft Edge runs with network isolation by default for security reasons. To enable loopback and debug your localhost server run the following command from an elevated shell:

CheckNetIsolation LoopbackExempt -a -n=Microsoft.Windows.Spartan_cw5n1h2txyewy

In a future update, you’ll be able to enable localhost loopback support using about:flags.
