Area secured! Microsoft has released Edge 105, with the latest version of the company’s web browser packing improvements related to security and IE mode improvements.
This release is now available in the Stable channel, with the software titan listing the necessary details in the release notes that you can scan. The company also lists the security updates separately for those who want to keep tabs on these specific enhancements.
The main highlights for version 105 are improvements to the overall security of the web browser, as well as enhancements to the Cloud Site List Management experience for its Internet Explorer mode.
Proceeding start with enhanced security mode improvements, with this mode now supporting WebAssembly for x64 flavors of Windows. There were some concerns regarding the performance in this mode, with fears that it would be too slow for use or break down sites.
But thankfully, we are in the clear.

Next up, is IE mode, which has seen improvements to the Cloud Site List Management experience. This particular feature has now assumed a whole another level of importance following the high-profile retirement of Internet Explorer.
