Small complaint but it's worth fixing: the shade of blue chosen for URL highlighting is too light/bright, especially for dark mode. Also, it's noticeably lighter than what the 'old' Edge used. Please use the same blue that the old Edge used, it just looks wrong being so bright (screenshot attached)highlightblueistoobright.png

@Bdsrev Thank you for bringing this to our attention.  I will have our engineers take a look at this.

@Eric_MSany update on this issue? It's surprisingly annoying, the blue is just too light/bright, it's basically neon blue! :(
