Hello Insiders! Today we’re releasing build 87.0.637.0 to the Dev channel. It’s a small week this week due to the holiday last week, but we do have some fun things to share about the launch of the Surface Duo. Here, we have an overview of how Edge works better with multitasking: https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2020/09/10/the-new-microsoft-edge-on-surface-duo-showcas.... And for developers, we’ve got an overview of how those dual screen APIs work and how they can get them working in their own websites: https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2020/09/14/introducing-dual-screen-foldable-web-apis/. Developers also get a bonus: an overview of our new source order viewer in the F12 tools: https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2020/09/15/source-order-viewer-edge-devtools/. As for everything in the browser:
As always, you’re the ones who make all this possible! To better know how we can serve you, we’d love for you to take our quarterly survey here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/surveys/quarterly-survey-september-2020/m-p/1658897.

What's the point of Edge auto-refreshing tabs in a while? It's so frustrating and I lose all my workflow.

There is a nice option of 'switch to this tab' when a history suggestion under URL bar is already opened in a tab. Don't know if it is new or I noticed it just today.

I would like to see the following features getting added to the Shy UI:

@sid9-3 this might not be intentional, so we should figure out if it is or not. First, do you have anything listed in edge://crashes? If a tab crashes, it will have to reload. Next, are you closing Edge at all when you see this happen? When Edge re-opens with previous pages, it sometimes doesn't load all of the pages until you click on them, which may also appear as if they're reloading. One other possibility is that your machine is very low on memory, in which case Chromium-based browsers automatically unload tabs in order to free up space.
The only way for this to be intentional that I can think of is if you're the lucky recipient of a feature we're testing to unload not-recently used pages in order to reduce memory and battery usage. However, I don't believe we've actually started rolling this out yet, so the only way that would happen is if you've manually enabled it by turning on the flag. You'd know if you were using this feature if you see tab titles fading a while after you've left them untouched.

Hey just wondering if anyone has experienced same as me. I have quite a lot of sites with white or bright backgrounds constantly flashing/flickering while scrolling or with some CSS animations playing. Could be related to the last GPU update maybe? I have NVIDIA GTX 1070 SLI, driver ver. 452.06, and another PC with GTX 770 driver ver. 446.14 both experiencing same problem on same version of Edge Dev 87.0.637.0. Disabling Hardware-Acceleration doesn't make a difference.

@josh_bodner I really dislike the current state of the new copy/paste of URL's, or maybe there is just a bug in it affecting Atlassian products in particular (I haven't tested it extensively, but this one is biting me everyday right now).
Giving the page title and then a link is nice, but the links that are coming at the end are domain only and not the actual URL I was trying to post... so I have to take the extra step to right click and paste as text or try and remember the new shortcut.
For example (made up): Project Consolidated status https://jira.mycompany.com/SDLFKSDLFJF
What new edge pastes in Slack: My Project Consolidated Status - Jira (mycompany.com)
The link ends up being just to mycompany.com and not to the origin URL above.
