I have animations in Windows turned off. In Chrome (stable) I cannot see the ripple or fade effects on buttons which is normal behaviour. Edge used to only have a fade effect when animations were turned on. Now most Edge buttons have a fade AND ripple effect even when animations are turned off! The few buttons that are not affected by this bug are the site info button, favourite button and the extension buttons.
Hi, I just tried this, when I set Windows effects set to adjust for best performance (uncheks all boxes), I only get fade animation. i don't know if it's even called animation since it's too quick and only happens immediately after mouse hover on bookmarks, all other buttons, options on the ellipsis menu list. on best appearance option (checks all boxes) I get slight ripple and fade animations.
I would make a gif or video to show u but currently too much personal info on my screen to blur x)
