Microsoft Edge v92 to get automatic HTTPS support



HTTPS is a browser protocol that securely establishes a connection with the hosting server. This is being done by using SSL encrypted tunnels. These days, many websites use the HTTPS protocol to create a secure channel between the client and the server.

 

Microsoft confirmed that the company is working on a feature that will set HTTPS as its default protocol in Microsoft Edge (Chromium) browser. This feature is going to come in a future build of Edge v92.

Microsoft Edge version 92.x is being tested by the Edge Insiders in the Dev Channel. Now, the company is working on a feature (Automatic HTTPS) that will upgrade the navigations from HTTP to HTTPS on the domains that likely to support the more secure protocol.

 

Starting with Microsoft Edge version 92, users will have the option to upgrade navigations from HTTP to HTTPS on domains likely to support this more secure protocol. This support can also be configured to attempt delivery over HTTPS for all domains, Microsoft states in the Microsoft 365 roadmap.

 

The feature is likely to hit Microsoft Edge 92, with the July 2021 release. When enabled, Microsoft Edge will no longer need to redirect from HTTP to HTTPS. The more secure connections will help protect customers from man-in-the-middle attacks.
