1st feature: Panel
The option of seeing my downloads, history, notes and bookmarks just a click away is great. No need to go through windows or a different tab to find what I need. All those options are there on the side without unnecessary clicks.
2nd feature: Tab stacks
I LOVE this feature. When I'm watching Twitch or Mixer streams and the people I'm watching are playing the same game, I can just group 3/4 tabs into one tab stack. Rather than having multiple windows open due to number of tabs, you can just group the common ones together.
3rd feature: Show closed tabs
Next to the minimise button on Vivaldi browser there is a bin icon which shows your recently closed tabs.
The 3rd feature isn't as important but the first 2 are honestly my favourite features. All my downloads/ bookmarks, history just a click away and I can have the option of hiding it if I don't plan on using it. The tab stacks are just a game changer for a power user like me who uses many tabs.
Are there any plans on these sort of features?

@martinnn Didn't know about that! I just tried it and it's definitely a good start, but would honestly love the ability to make them into one tab rather than just grouping them and them keeping a tab slot as usual.
Like for example, if I have 12 tabs open, 3 Twitch, 3 shopping, 3 banking, 3 work.
Instead of 12 tabs, it'll just be 4 tabs each with 3 pages within them.
So maybe a minimise feature on the groups so it collapses them?

Edge has tab grouping that needs improvements (can be activated using "tab groups" flag)
but i believe vertical tabs and improvements it will bring will take care of it
Show closed tabs is also available (on canary and soon on all channels)
seeing favorites/bookmarks is 1 click away
downloads, history etc are 2 clicks away (on ellipsis menu)

Downloads is two clicks away, which is fine enough, but customization is always nice to have.
The full history page is three clicks away; two only gives you the flyout that doesn't come with all the features like searching through history.
Again, customization of the toolbar and placement of items within it is always great to have and is good for quicker access and a faster browsing experience.
I agree customization is great but history is 2 clicks too. 1 click on ellipsis menu button, then move your cursor over history, wait a few Milliseconds then click on manage history, or just press CTRL + H shortcut if using keyboard ;)

That's still equivalent to 3 taps on a touchscreen. Ctrl+H also isn't an option with a tablet. Pinning icons to the toolbar is good for touch support, which New Edge severely lacks compared to the old one.
Yeah I know but since you and me were talking about clicks i said that.

It's not that bad, but once I started using Vivaldi and then came back to Edge, it felt like the ease of use went down.
The grouping feature is a start, but the option to make them smaller or be one tab like Vivaldis stacks would make it perfect. Panels just felt amazing from the start for me when using Vivaldi, just giving the option for users to have it would be great, it doesn't have to be forced.

Tab groups in edge are not the same feature at all.
It's just a color associated to tab. Not Grouping like in Vivaldi.
it's really the one feature I can't live without in vivaldi, and the only thing keeping me from going to Edge full-time. The other little things aren't vital, but this one, once you've tried it and you've got a lot of tabs, you can't go back.
Another thing I like in Vivaldi a lot, CTRL + tab switch between tab in order of last visualization, and not stupidly from left to right. Please consider adding this two
