I noticed an interesting thing, the colour of the edge's window changes when it becomes inactive.

At first, I thought it's tint based but looks like the inactive window is always blue with some saturation\value tweaks. On older builds the only value of the window colour was change.

This is a bug or feature? This isn't typical behaviour on Windows 10, an inactive window there lost transparency and become black\white according to the theme.

Oh that's nice!
i like that the tabs still have black background so the tab title texts stay readable regardless of Windows 10 accent color
