@Abdelhak Smara The same thing happened here... In the previous version, we had a working sync for our Azure AD identities. With this update, it displays the "sync is not enabled for school or work accounts" message again... Is this intended behavior?

@josh_bodner Excellent, in the last update, there was an error that broke the searching bar, making my search results displayed in Bing instead Google...now it's fixed.
Still waiting until you can add the option to make this as our default browser, so I can get rid of Google Chrome.

The right-click menus over tabs and the tab bar still say 'R eopen closed tab' instead of 'Reopen closed tab'.

@josh_bodner under the new "Read aloud getting better with the cloud," you mention the "Settings & more" menu. When I click the three dots I see "Settings" but not "Settings & more." Am I misunderstanding or missing something? Thanks!

@josh_bodner Something I was reminded of, earlier today, when I'd reported a bug in an extension that's available for both Google Chrome and Firefox, and the Chrome version also works in Edge Dev, installed from the Google Chrome Store. I agreed to check and report back on the hopefully fixed version the developer very quickly produced and put up to both the Firefox and Google Chrome extension stores.
In Firefox, quite reasonably, there is a 'check for updates' to click on in the Firefox Extension page. In Google Chrome, quite weirdly, there is no 'update' control to check for updates for extensions unless you enable 'Developer mode' - for no good reason I can think of, and I can imagine many ordinary users (a) would be wary of enabling something called that, and (b) wouldn't even think that might produce a 'check for updates' button anyway.
I see Edge Dev is following Google Chrome in this at the moment and I had to enable 'Developer Mode' to get an 'update' button for extensions to then get the updated extension I wanted to test (and it was fixed). I really cannot see any reason for or logic in the extension update button being hidden behind 'developer mode'. Could you please just put the extension update check button out in the regular extension page, and not follow Google in this silliness.

Hello guys !!! Good news about our Edge :)) I have something to ask about :
Our edge could have a download manager like firefox have ;) ... When we put something to download, the browser open a footer to manage, with its folder to open or click on the name of file to execute(open); forcing user go to the " X " mark to close it ... When downloading multiple files it's very annoying ... It would be amazing our new edge be something like Firefox download manager, only a bar aside the search bar shining when downloading is working, along side with the extensions ... With no footer screen annoying forcing to close the windows... Maybe we could get a half term on settings, letting users to decide best way to use it :)) Maybe a beautiful Edge logon shining would be great, with no footer/windows to force users to close if He/she is working in other things ;) Think about it guys ... Thanks guys and thanks for the great job :))

@asdy4 They've told us that new features are only given to some of us at first as part of a 'controlled roll-out', so their monitoring can compare performance of those with the feature with those without it. As I don't see it and at least several other people don't, this must be one of the controlled roll-out situations and we'll have to wait, probably until the next update.

@josh_bodner May I just point out that the 'Fixes for improved behavior': 'Changed the tiles on the new tab page to show the page’s title when hovering over them instead of the page’s address' doesn't help those of us who CHOSE the tiles we wanted (with the + tile, then entering the URL) as there's still no field to enter the title on tile creation, only the URL - and no option to edit a tile at all after creation, only delete.
(And I'd still like options for two rows of tiles, and how many tiles per row - as long as it lets me pick 6.)

I think I'm seeing a misunderstanding. David, you are right, the Edge C Channels can be designated Default Browser in the OS Settings; the most enlightening way to test. However, I think the other person is wondering when Edge C will be replacing Edge as the 'natural' OS Default Browser; without 'forcing' it in the OS Settings.
Some Folks, myself included, are thinking it is likely to happen w/ 1909. Really, doubt it will be ready before that. Heck, the 3rd (slowest) beta track isn't even available, yet.
It makes folks wonder since these early betas are, already, so well developed... and folks are, already, using the betas as their new preferred browser... BUT, still, a good while until ready for prime time or GA release or, actually, is pushed out as replacing Edge; as in when it no longer has to be downloaded & installed... well, at least, not on Win10.

WHAT??!! 1) I re-enabled all the IE Flags & still, no sign of it & 2) we aren't even supposed to have it, anymore; we were just testing it for a while... now, it's exclusively an Enterprise thing. Nor is there any mention of this in the 184.108.40.206 Announcement, the OP of this thread.

@josh_bodner Regarding "Added a policy to enable deleting browsing data upon exit.": The latest policy file (from https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/enterprise?form=MB1101&OCID=MB1101) is from 08/09/2019. Will there be an update of the policy file as well soon?

I keep seeing that request in these release notes and it's been my default browser for a while now. If this is about an OS that isn't Windows 10 maybe you should be more specific in your request. In Windows 10 you can easily do that as @DavidGB wrote

Still missing the IE Mode for non Enterprise users.
Would like to see the option "Open in Internet Explorer Mode" for ALL websites, NOT only for a listed internal Website.
Reason is, many IoT Devices like Digital Video recorders, Webcam, Switches, Telecommunication systems, IP telephones and other browser enabled gadgets need ActiveX/Flash/Internet Explorer specific functions.
I was informed, that later after Edge Chromium installation Edge and IE will removed from User access, so their is definitely a NEED for non Enterprise customer to have the IE Mode. This would be then the only way to open that IE specific webpages!!
