Following a tease during the Build 2021 Developer Conference, Microsoft has officially announced the rollout of version 91 of its new Edge browser. This release brings new ways to save money at the time of purchase as well as new ways to personalize the look and feel of the browser.
After installing this latest update, when shopping at Microsoft Edge at select retailers, you should see a new price history feature. It will appear as a price tag icon in the address bar. When you click on it, you will see a graph of historical online prices for the item you are looking for.
In addition to the Price History feature, Microsoft is also introducing Bing Rebates to Edge for a single, seamless experience. To get started, just sign in with your Microsoft account and enable Bing Rebates.
You can then start earning cash back for your purchases from select retailers like Walmart, Microsoft Store and others. You will see the cash back option when the address bar has a price tag and a message indicating a certain percentage back. Microsoft says that it works with more than 1,200 qualified retailers.
As announced during Build 2021, the Edge 91 works on the Sleeping Tab feature. With this, you will see up to 82% memory savings based on data collected by Microsoft in internal testing. This feature works by keeping inactive tabs in the background when needed, helping to save system resources in Windows 10.
Edge 91 has new color themes. The theme changes the appearance of the title bar and other areas in the Edge. Here you can choose from 10 Appearance Page in the Edge Settings menu. These are to build on the exclusive first-party theme that was introduced in Edge in January.
If you have not already updated automatically to Edge version 91, you can easily do this in a few steps. Just go to the menu next to your profile icon, select Adjustment, And then choose About microsoft edge. From there, Edge will download and install the latest update.
