Earlier this week, Microsoft released another stable version of the Edge browser – 103.0.1264.37, which implements several new features, as well as a number of general fixes aimed at improving the stability of the program. In addition, the developers have integrated into the browser the ability to control the automatic switching of profiles, improved protection against web threats, and added a tool for switching client certificates.

First of all, it is worth noting the possibility of controlling the automatic switching of profiles using the GuidedSwitchEnable policy. After activation, the policy will prompt the user to go to the appropriate profile in cases where Edge identifies the transition to a personal or work link.
Switching client certificates will allow users to clear the certificate stored in memory and reopen the certificate selection window when navigating to the site that requires http-certificate authentication. It is noteworthy that such switching can be done without having to exit the Edge.
Edge 103 implements more robust web space protection based on a redesigned Microsoft Defender SmartScreen library. Using the NewSmartScreenLibraryEnable policy will allow enterprise users to apply a previous version of the library until it is completely removed with the release of Edge 105.
A new version of the browser has a banner to search for work topics in the address bar. It helps to focus on tasks without being distracted. The banner will make it easier for users to search for information related to work in the organization, for which it is enough to activate the corresponding icon at the beginning of the address bar.
