Previously, using the split window in the tab was not an option for extended periods. Edge 119 is slated for widespread distribution in the retail channel by approximately November 2nd, 2023. Additionally, there is a modification related to the beforeunload event.

The behavior of the beforeunload event has changed such that calling preventDefault in a beforeunload event handler no longer triggers a confirmation dialog, and setting returnValue to an empty string in a beforeunload event handler no longer triggers a confirmation dialog. This behavior takes effect starting with Microsoft Edge version 119. Administrators can temporarily turn off this functionality by BeforeunloadEventCancelByPreventDefaultEnableddisabling the policy.

The following options have been created for administrators using the guidelines:
