You've made that incongruous button even worse and still not removable. Rounded corners on the webpages itself is also a really questionable decision that should be optional. If this is Edge's future then I may have to switch to something else.

Alright for all of us who's looking for the fix:
Disable the above three flags and restart Edge.
Experimental or not, I don't think these new visual changes are in anywhere near a good direction to create a better UX. Wasting space for UI eye candy is never a good thing. The profile switcher was in a logical location now it takes over the vertical tap options button, makes no logical sense to have it in the title bar and very bad for existing users' muscle memory. Last but not least the uni-color rounded tabs design is an absolute disaster for distinguishing the active tab. Hopefully you guys could take more serious considerations when designing future UX changes.

I'll have to echo what everyone else is already saying. The rounded cornering of the website page inside the window is distracting and makes the browser look whack with the white space between the browser window and the webpage frame. Revert that now.
also, I get that the chat bubble bing logo is where bing/chatgpt will land, but that is also distracting. There should be a way to hide it. we all know that if we're going to be using bing/chatgpt/ai, it should show up in the text box dropdown that starts showing suggestions as we type in the URL/Search text box (ask bing ai in that drop down list or whatever). probably more annoying that the feature isn't even active yet.
Also, if you leave the discover side bar pane open and close a tab, it crashes the browser.

Please put a pointless 10-Pixel-Frame around websites in my browser so there is less space for the content itself.

@Eric_E I agreed with the other replies that there are a lot of wasted space in the new UI design. Those few pixels that border almost all elements when add up together make the actual web page content quite small compared to previous versions. Not to mention that the new profile icon location is quite unintuitive.
The discover icon/button is very annoying and quite distracting for productivity.
