I'm thrilled that the new Chromium-based Edge supports the use of custom searches like Chrome does. I had a long list of these in Chrome. It would be great if Edge would allow us to import our existing custom searches from Chrome directly into Edge. 

 

And second, it would be great if custom searches could be synced between Edge installs on different machines on the same Outlook account. 

 

And finally, very minor comment, but the list of custom searches (edge://settings/searchEngines) doesn't make use of the full screen, and shows only six lines. Please let that pane fill the full page so we don't need to scroll as much to find and edit a custom search.

Great suggestion! We are comitted to make the migration process as painless and rich as possible and Search Engines import is an area we are keeping an eye on. There will a lot of big stories around the import experince as we move closer to our public release. Stay tuned!

 

Regarding your issue on the view area in the Search engines list page, I have forwarded it to the relevant team.

 

Keep sending the bouqets/bricks/suggestion our way!
