We recently reported about Microsoft's new online privacy tool and the baked-in privacy tweaks planned to be included in Windows 10's next big update, the Creators Update, due early this year.

While we patiently wait for the big changes this next massive update will bring, early adopters can tide it over with the Windows 10 Insider Preview builds. The last preview Build 15002 just recently officially hit the Fast ring and it's packed with new features and improvements that only Windows Insider members can enjoy...for now.

Microsoft Edge

In Build 15002, Microsoft's Edge browser now shows tab preview- thumbnail images of each open tab on the upper bar, and the ability to "set tabs aside" for later viewing. You can also easily launch separate regular or private browsing windows via a taskbar icon.

Edge will now also support Microsoft's Payment Request API so you can use your payment preferences and shipping address stored in Microsoft Wallet while browsing.

But perhaps the most significant change is the blocking of Flash by default. In Build 15002, Flash on Edge is click-to-run, meaning you'll have to allow it each time you want Flash content to run.

Cortana

Cortana can now display a list of app-specific commands, auto-suggesting commands based on what you're typing and recurring reminders can now be scheduled on a monthly basis.
