Microsoft Edge Insiders in the Dev Channel have a new update to install. The browser just received a bump to version 111.0.1619.2. There aren’t any major changes, but it is now possible to personalize the top sites within the Sidebar. I asked for more customization options when I argued that “Microsoft Edge’s Sidebar is the best browser feature you’ve never heard of.”

In addition to a handful of added features, the update includes the normal set of reliability improvements and bug fixes.
