With the latest release (I am using 78.0.268.3), when I load or refresh a page, the loading symbol will load on top of the favicon which is a little annoying...
In previous versions, the favicon would be replaced with the loading icon.
While I don't mind having the loading icon as well as the page favicon, I do mind having it overlapping.
How about pushing it more towards the left, so it will look something like this;
Loading Icon > Page Favicon > Page Title, instead of now where Loading Icon is Together with the Favicon

what you're seeing is the new loading animation that Edge insider is using, it's also happening in Google chrome canary.
previous on Edge insider I could turn it off and on using a flag called "new tab loading animation" or something like that, but it's gone now so I assume they are choosing this new animation to replace the old one.
I agree with you though, there was better ways to animate that. I hope they at least improve it :\
here is how it looks like on Chrome

I like them, but it's not a big deal if they remove them because it annoys people. If you want to see them removed, use the Canary version, as they seem to have removed it.
This is the current Can animation
And this is the current Dev animation
Hope this helps!

I hope this is a bug in Canary and that the animation has not been removed, I like it.

@HotCakeX Yeah, I remember that a long time ago I wrote that post on Reddit (where I included those high quality gifs):
From the moment that animation appeared in Chrome Canary, I loved it, it would be a shame if it is removed from the new Edge, in the stable version of Chrome now appears by default.
