Microsoft released a security update for the stable version of the company’s Edge web browser. Microsoft Edge 105.0.1343.42 fixes eight security issues in the web browser.
The security update is already available. Most Edge installations will receive the update automatically, thanks to the built-in updating functionality of the browser.
Edge users may speed up the installation of the update by loading edge://settings/help in the browser’s address bar, or selecting Menu > Help > About Microsoft Edge alternatively.
Edge displays the installed version and runs a check for updates. The browser should pick up the security update at this point and install it automatically. A restart is required to complete the process.
Microsoft does not reveal much about the security update in the release announcement on the official Deploy Edge website.
Microsoft has released the latest?Microsoft Edge Stable Channel (Version 105.0.1343.42), which incorporates the latest Security Updates of the Chromium project.
The security updates are not specific to Microsoft Edge, but affect all Chromium-based web browsers. Google released the last security update for Chrome on September 14, 2022. The update fixed 11 different security issues in Chrome, including several rated with a severity of high.
Microsoft patched the security issues relevant to the Edge browser. All Chromium-based browsers share a core, but companies may add features to the browser that are custom; this explains the difference in the number of issues patched in Chrome and in Edge.
The maximum severity rating of the issues patched in Microsoft Edge is high, the second highest after critical.
Edge users who want to know more may check the release notes on Microsoft’s Update Guide website.
Windows users who have Edge installed on their devices may want to upgrade the browser as soon as possible, even if it is not the primary browser on the system.
Now You: which web browser is your favorite, and why?
Is this how ugly Edge looks like right now?! When did they start copying Firefox’ UI? ROFL Firefox is the worst place one should look for good design inspiration, let alone blatant copying. Firefox looked beautiful before version 4.0 released, now it looks like ass with fecal matter on it.
I actually liked the look of the legacy Edge, with square tabs. I’m really big on putting tabs below the address bar, but only Safari allows that out of the box.
Greetings from 2003, boomer.
I use Chrome almost all the time, but I like to have a current Edge available as well.The current .42 Edge update requires you to make some required answers carefully if you want to have things work as you want.
So now Google has had to fix 36 different security flaws in September alone, and we’re only halfway through the month. Including at least one zero-day exploit.
They really are trying to take up my challenge of creating and claiming to fix at least 100 security flaws per month.
And that’s AFTER Firefox already fixed some issues like not being multiprocess. You are a member of the Pale Moon forum, Pale Moon still retains the issues from OLD Firefox in addition to that. Also, the Pale Moon codebase is not really being audited by third parties anymore. Tell me, what do you know about security? I suspect, nothing.
adobe for one welcomes it’s new dark zero-day overlord taking the crown for most insecure software
every day is patch day at chromium
Except Flash was a tiny codebase compared to any browser even back then, and had minimal functionality compared to a browser. If we needed proof that idiotic comparisons thrive on gHacks, I need to look no further anymore really.
