AV1 is still not working. HEVC works, but Dolby Vision gives incorrect colors.

(Copied from another release page which I thought was for today, sorry!)

@Eric_E my whole family loves this browser - just curious though:

  1. Are any of these crash fixes related to the right click stall crashes which occur in more memory-hungry sites? As much as we love how feature-rich MS has made its flavor of Chromium, I've never had a browser crash as much as Edge does...even in Stable/Main builds. I think it might be related to the spelling/grammar checker.
  2. Can we have unlimited history retention? It would also be super appreciated if MS could write/implement a way to work around the 3-month history limit arbitrarily imposed by Chromium core devs, since I never delete my history and use it for research - Firefox does this by default.
  3. Can we please allow for the reordering of sidebar sites/apps? I don't like having work & entertainment apps mixed together accidentally.
  4. Can we have unlimited workspace colors? The current palette is pretty blah and some colors look uggo in my opinion. Would be cool to have a color picker and "commonly used colors" section.

But seriously, thanks for such an awesome browsing experience. And trust that this is something I never thought I'd say to MS ;)

@Eric_E Thank you for the fix on the vertical tab empty space. Now only one thing that annoys me remains which is the copy link text in the context menu, can it be restored?



What is the keyboard shortcut to "Move tab to new window"?

And if there is none yet, could you ask the developers to add one please? Thanks.


(Moving tabs to their own browser window is most likely a feature which is more frequently used than some other features which do a have a keyboard shortcut).




Could you please fix this weird line border that goes over the favourites bar when it is activated for new tabs only? It looks really weird and bugs me. I think that if you improve this the aesthetics and appearance will improve a lot. Thank you.





@Paul_VC  Hi Paul, I don't know if you know this already but you can drag tabs away from the window you want to get a new window from & it will give you a new window, when you get it far enough away. I hope this helps.


that video playback on "certain websites" was so pointed hahahahaha I'm glad I can watch drag race in peace thanks <3
Indeed, thanks, I am aware of this. In addition to this, a keyboard shortcut would be useful, as this is a frequently used feature. There are other features, likely much less used, which do have a keyboard shortcut.


This version does no longer use the white font color on tab categories, it is now fairly hard to read: 



Hi, the colors of the open tabs, the camp is dull to me, which is not very beautiful, I liked the past ones more, and it would be cool to be able to choose the color of the masonry myself. Thank you for the update!

@Eric_E Still can't use the vertical tab in full screen on MacOS:cry:


  • Fixed edge://app-settings page displaying “This page has been blocked by Microsoft Edge” message.

this thing is still there
