Hello Insiders! Today we released build 220.127.116.11 to the Microsoft Edge Developer channel. We’ve got some new features, many of which you’ve seen over the past two weeks in Canary and have been eagerly waiting for in Dev. We’ve also fixed quite a few reliability and behavior issues, the most significant of which include:
We have added a single fix from to the .2 release, a fix to the Add Profile button so that it works by default even if you don't change the name of the profile.
New features and behavior:
Fixes for improved reliability:
Fixes for improved behavior:
In addition to this work, there has been a ton of work on coming features including enterprise management and IE-mode. And of course, thanks to everybody for being an insider and sending us all of your great feedback and suggestions!

@Elliot Kirk I described the problem in detail in my post on this form. when a mouse with screen access programs is used, web pages are very poorly voiced by the narrator and nvda. Here's my post. https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Discussions/offer-of-functions/m-p/735363

Oh, while on the edge://flags page I came across this interesting flag.. Not sure how long it has been there, but the concept is interesting...
I Like this idea. To be able to choose which sites to always clear on exit instead of having the option, but having no choice as to which sites....
But I think there needs to be an easier way to add sites. Having to add them one at a time could be time consuming. Would be nice that when you click the add button a popup appears that shows "all" the sites you have currently visited with a check box along side each where by you can choose which sites to either "not" clear on exit or "to" clear on exit. I think the choice should be "not" clear on exit....

Thanks for the language option!
There's a visual problem on the browser home page when the language is set to German.
The square where is written “Personalized news & more” (Personalisierte Nachrichten und Mehr, in German) doesn't fit with the text.
This update is awesome. Thanks for that. :)

@Elliot Kirk Something that I find that is missing from the current dev build, is the original Edge favorites menu and settings, slide out tab. Personally that was one thing that had drawn me to edge originally over other browsers, as it felt more streamlined and easier to see and use... It would be interesting, if we aren't going to get that style back to understand the reasoning behind the change.
However, overall I love the changes that have been made, and how much you guys really take into consideration the feedback... I wish you guys well with this endeavor!

@Elliot Kirk Dark mode is one of the most needed feature in a browser. If you include this extension's features into the Edge, it'd be perfect

@MarsMas - If you use the "middle Click" on the mouse, the favorite/link etc will open in one click on a separate tab. This also works if you group your favorites into folders. One click will open all links in the folder.
I use this all the time, and not just in Edge

because to me, the yellow folder looks dated. Like I said, it's not the end of the world, I just prefer the old folder icon.
I agree 100% with your second point. The "old" Edge looks so much better. The main/top part of the browser is not as tall, the URL bar is perfectly sized (the new one is HUGE), there are no Fluent elements etc. I absolutely love the new context menu design though (I believe this will be the default context menu design for the whole OS in the future).
Smooth scrolling in the old Edge is also the definition of perfection and thankfully, it's coming to the new Edge as well (scroll down a bit to the blue row): https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/welcome

When will you guys be working on the "my feed" section that appears when using the "informational layout" for new tabs?
I would like to request the ability to customize this section, similar to what google does, on a card by car basis, with no particular news aggregate set as default.

I just tested the SSO with Azure AD with one of my Enterprise Applications and it is prompting for a password. Are their any setting that need to be set for this to work?

Yellow folders are very welcome, they existed in the old Edge and it makes totally sense to have them here as well, old folders were too Chrome-esque, and the less this browser looks like a Google product, the better

@Elliot Kirk I would love to test AAD integration with SSO and an enterprise account. but if I log off with my private account and want to re-login -- I dont get any other option than "personal MS account".
how to I enter my company account from AAD?
