Serious issue with Edge for Android: you literally can't use the browser when in split screen mode (for example, YouTube app at the top and Edge on the bottom) Both toolbars go to the top of the app and are overlapping, it's a mess. See attached screenshot. Device is a Google Pixel 3a XL. Please fix this! I want Edge to be my default but I like to use split screen often.

Well, though the new Edge for PC (Mac and Windows) is great, I certainly agree that Microsoft doesn't seem to care about the mobile version. They've focused so much on adding features that they seem to have forgotten about things like stability.
For example, while using the tab switch swipe gesture, especially in Dark mode, the address bar looks extremely ugly - it temporarily changes from black to white.
Another example, if a site opens by extracting API from Edge (i.e. powered by Microsoft Edge), the Contextual Search menu that appears at the bottom on selecting a word sometimes appears black and sometimes white.
Yet another example, while scrolling on a webpage, the address bar always temporarily changes from rounded to square, before it gets hidden at the top.There are tons of such examples in the Edge mobile app. To be honest, I am a little disappointed in Microsoft this time, based on their Android browser.
These are small things, but these things are not expected from such a large company. Google get's this perfect every time, everywhere. They may sometimes compromise on the features, but their softwares' stability and code quality, multi-device sync and consistency in multiple terms across services seems to be unbeatable.
I hope Microsoft realizes this and actually fixes the (too many to count) errors.

@Bdsrev and @NamishB Thank you both for sharing your pain points around this; I'll pass this thread along to our Mobile team. However, if you haven't yet, can you also please submit detailed feedback and diagnostics through the in-browser feedback tool? ("..." menu > Help and feedback > Send feedback.) That really helps the devs.
