Edge has always been rather boring, you get either a light or a dark theme.

 

Up until the last update I could access and install chrome themes but now not so.

Now clicking Apply Theme gives package is invalid CRX_Required_PROOF_MISSING.

 

I installed the below theme before the update.

Other than that I love the new Edge.

Hoping in the future more theme choices appear.

Themes are planned for later on.

Hi there! Would love to take this opportunity to learn more about your wishlist for themes:

 

What would it mean to you to have more theming options in the browser?

What would theming look like, how do you imagine them affecting the browser? 

What are your unmet needs here, what would having more theming options allow you to do?

 

Thanks!

Irina

@IrinaL  it is easy to find all answers when we look at other browsers in the market, come on 

@MarsMas That's fair, but every browser does something different, with different levels of customization (Chrome has predefined themes, Vivaldi lets you tweak a few set colors, etc.), so we're interested in finding out what levels of customization stand out to our customers as the best path forward.

@IrinaL As far as i know, most best browsers in the market are based on Chromium open source , new Edge based on Chromium open source too. It is better for Edge to move faster and faster
