First of all:

 

I REALLY love the new Edge dev update:

 

One feautre I did not know I was missing (coming from Chrome) is the smooth scrolling in the new dev build!

Since the first dev build, I've used Edge insider for all browsing besides PDF viewing, which I used Edge Classic. When this new build came out, I was exicted, due the PDF experience should've got better.

The PDF experience, in my opinion, is a little worse than Classic Edge (but better than Chrome), due the lack of:

Smooth scrolling (found in Classic Edge).

The PDF's can not be written on with a pen (Surface Pro 5 user).

 

I think this new Edge will get popular. It's great!

Agree with @Jdreioe regarding the PDF reader.  We just need the PDF reader features in classic Edge to be in Chromium Edge.

I also agree with @Jdreioe. I hope we'll soon be able to write on PDF's with a stylus.

@Jdreioe I agree. Penning on PDFs = daily- driver
