In Edge-Dev/Settings/Appearance/Context-menus, I noticed this mention of the "Right-click menu".
However, clicking on it does not do anything. Is this a bug? Or is this an upcoming feature to customize the Right-Click Menu, but which is currently inactive?

No, it's not a bug, it's an indicator that the options below (or in the gray box) apply to the right-click menu. EDIT: I suppose it could be renamed to text selection and images menu, since that's what the options apply to.

Ha, now I see. :)
Well, its design (quite hard to see it is a a heading) and its text description are confusing.
PS: Actually, I wish it was about an upcoming feature to customize the Right-click-on-page menu, because we really need a way to customize which options appear in it, as it has grown to ginormous size.

please add support the hevc decoder in edge for chromium
A month ago, StaZhu wrote hevc support for chromium.
It is possible to play hevc videos with hardware-decoding without extensions installed.
And the above support has been merged into chromium's mainline.
The latest Chrome Canary can also be enabled by passing “--enable-features=PlatformHEVCDecoderSupport” and launch.
But I tried, edge can't enable the above features by passing “--enable-features=PlatformHEVCDecoderSupport” and launch.
I hope edge will support it officially.
The direct browser support method is more stable and better than hevc extension.

After the update:
- IE Mode is missing
- Sidebar is missing
- Extension badges have red background and black text instead of white text.

Update: Next to Edge Dev and Edge Stable, I also tested pdf scrolling smoothness in Edge Beta and Canary, on my Windows 11 laptop.
Conclusion: scrolling through a pdf-file in Edge Stable and in Edge Beta is smooth. Alas, scrolling a pdf-file stutters in Edge Dev and Edge Canary.
(Tested this with all my Extensions enabled and disabled. Made no difference. And I tested also in InPrivate mode. Same results).

The IE mode button
seems to actually have a problem with detecting which sites are incompatible (did you introduce that option now?) - the "Default" option of "Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer mode (IE mode)" seems to not allow using this. If I change this to "Allow", it works OK. In the Dev version it appeared by itself on one of the saved sites and I could use it on a new site after that.
I can't find the sidebar anywhere though. I can't remember the key binding to try it. I specifically liked the Outlook app there.
