Hello Insiders! Today we’re releasing build 102.0.1235.1 to the Dev channel. I know I mentioned last week that this will be the final build for the Dev channel for 102, but it’s looking like it won’t be, so be on the lookout for a build higher than 1235 soon. As for what’s in this one:
As always, thanks for all your feedback; we couldn’t do it without you!

Please allow us to remove the side panel button from the toolbar as not only is it a completely useless and unnecessary feature as there is already a panel for Favourites (Ctrl+Shift+O), but it also causes visual issues in Settings if you have the sidebar also enabled (there are way too many side panel/bar features, it's a joke at this point). Not to mention the inconsistency in design compared to all the other panels.
At this point, this browser has gone from a simple, quite capable, and clean user experience to an excessive number of pointless features that cannot be turned off creating too many distractions on screen. Don’t get me wrong, some features that have been added are very welcome, but the sidebar, side panel, and bloated context menu with no form of customisation is ruining this browser.
Please consider what features are necessary for this browser to grow and stop adding useless and unnecessary features that the user has no control over.

Please make it easier to add the currently viewed webpage to a Collection.
As it is now, it takes multiple steps to do so: click the ... menu, select Collections, select the collection you want to add the page to, and finally click the + icon to add the page to it.
A better way to do this could be: right-click the page's tab, select "Add page to collection", select the collection to add it to.

Thanks for this tip. This was not obvious to me, apparently. And maybe not to some other users either.
Would be great if this would work via right-click on the tab as well. Especially since "Add all tabs to Collections" is already available that way. So, adding "Add this tab to Collections" there too should be an easy decision to implement, I guess (I hope).

@josh_bodner There is still an issue that appeared in the prior build regarding red-colored text on 3rd party extensions as well as the ctrl+f search box. Also, as others have said, the ability to disable the "Show side panel" button NEEDS to be added.

@josh_bodner yesterday i did note that I am not able to log into my account in Linux. I am using Elementary OS (based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS) with Edge Beta. Tried the DEV channel and the same error occurs. When log into my account to Sync favorites and other stuff the browser close in unexpected way.
