One thing that the new edge is lacking and seriously needs to bring back that internet explorer and the old edge had was that in the top left corner an inprivate icon to indicate you're using inprivate browsing. The current inprivate mode looks too chrome like and is easy to mistake it for chrome. With the blue inprivate icon in the top left corner, it would give edge a sense of uniqueness from chrome and it was in both the old edge and internet explorer, it worked perfectly then and there really is no reason to not bring it back. Looking at a side by side comparison, the browser looked better when it had the blue inprivate icon when you were using inprivate modenewedge.pngoldedge.pngie.png

This is in dire need now that a dark mode is already on "public" browsing.

@edward2-_1880 Thanks for the detailed feedback, I'll forward this on to our team!

@edward2-_1880 Would like to add to the sentiment that this would be good, since the two are indistinguishable now. Firefox also has an indicator for InPrivate, not sure about Safari. Chromium seems to be the odd man out.
