The font size of text in the URL bar is slightly unnerving and feels too big given the size of the other font throughout the browser. Compared to Old Edge the font is significantly larger and looks too 'goofy'. It's hard to explain and is very much superficial, maybe the font is different to that of Old Edge.

Thank you @Cameron_Bush. I will give the owners of the Address bar this feedback.

@Cameron_Bush it's hard to find the right size for this many devices and settings. I frequently use 3 different devices (Desktop/Laptop/Surface) all with different resolutions and different scaling options. I do like the slightly bigger adressbar, what I don't like is that it gets even bigger if the browser snaps to one side of the screen (a blank space appears above the tabs at the very top)!

The whole tab & address area in genreal is just kinda big with blank spaces.  In addition to reducing the font size, I'd appreciate shaving off like 5 pixels of vertical space, especially on my lower resolution laptop.

I would agree, if I wasn't using touch. For those a little extra space is neat.

@Cameron_Bush totally agree - the larger font size is IMO is a bit distracting.
