Ok, updated... pressed the restart button... but umm, now it will not open at all.. It did not restart and now it will not open/start.. just closes immediately Posting this from Edge Can...

Same issue here. Does no longer start after the update on the two machines I updated. Running it elevated (admin rights) makes it start.

Just updated and Edge now only opens as Administrator. If you try to run it without admin privileges it crashes (tried on 3 different computers, reinstalling/rebooting makes no difference).

Very nice. Only beef with translator is that it needs to have the ability to translate any highlighted text because otherwise it only translates when it has decided enough of it is in a foreign language for translation. Otherwise, keep up the good work. I'm patiently waiting for new UI updates such as https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Discussions/Inprivate-mode-seriously-needs-to-have-brought-ba... and the future set tabs aside ability.

Excited to try it, but as others posted:

This update has been pulled, according to the Engineering Manager of Edge Continuous Shipping.
Somehow, even though I updated ~15 minutes ago, I still got the update. Will there be an bugfix for current 22.214.171.124 users or do we need to uninstall ..167.. and install the new dev build once it releases?

@David Rubino None of my computers are updating at this point. After reading the thread, it sounds like that might be a feature, not a bug. I'm assuming that the Edge team has put a hold on updating pending resolution of the "won't restart" issue. Is that correct?

Just a reminder that next Dev build is chosen from weekly pull of Canary builds. So one can install Canary build and enjoy more new features. Those are all alpha builds anyway coming up and down.

126.96.36.199 is working!
I can't comment on the automatic update.

EDIT: It has fixed itself! After a few hours and a reboot, I'm now getting proper 2-3% CPU usage when Edge is unfocused.
Unfortunately, I am still getting high CPU usage when Edge is idle (i.e., unfocused)
Five identical tabs (YouTube, this forum, Edge Insider home page, browser search engine, and Slickdeals.net homepage) + unfocused state + 60 second test:
Edge has constant 2x to 3x higher CPU usage across 6 cores, even on this latest version 188.8.131.52. This higher CPU usage translates to a higher CPU boost frequency, which translates to higher temperatures, which translates to louder fans.
I've sent this via the Smiley, too. I hope MS can get this CPU usage back down to levels before the 184.108.40.206 Dev build's CPU over-usage.

It seems a different issue compare to High CPU Usage when Edge is focused with no external tabs open. In fact, it may be closer to a new feature request to make Edge completely silent when unfocused, including no disk session maintenance, despite Chrome is not really silent when unfocused with several heavy tabs open. I agree this would be a notable step forward compare to Chrome if possible.
With regards to referral to previous Edge releases, I suspect they had a lot less action going on behind the scene, i.e. much less newly enabled code. Can you open a new thread on this, so other users can join?
05-24-2019 11:52 AM
Thank you both for the replies. Great news: I've tested it again now twice this afternoon, with the exact same tabs, and Edge C is now back down to 2-3% consistently, just like Chrome!
I'd tested twice this morning, too, with both tests nearly identical. Perhaps I missed something this morning or there was some "freshly updated rejiggering": but, I'm happy to say it's now back to normal.
If it happens again and I can reproduce it, I'll be sure to make a separate thread to gather more input.

It seems like the settings menu now works for pen and touch. Thanks for fixing that!
Unfortunately, I still can't drag the window around with my stylus :(

my name is philumax and I am new here.
I am French and I learned English by doing computer science, which, you will agree, is far from enough, to speak on forums using a language other than French.
so, to answer, I use the Google translate application, for lack of a translator, on the EDGE beta!
I also installed, the extension google translate.
I read that there must be a translator, but I, who just turned on my computer, I did not see a translator on the beta.
I have this version (copy-paste): 220.127.116.11 (Official build) dev (64-bit).
I also give my opinion on this version of EDGE: it seems, you put a turbo in the engine ... it does not bother me at all and even it is very appreciable!
to be honest, it was missing. I met some incompatibilities, with EDGE non Chomium, then with EDGE dev, I returned: apparently, there is more incompatibility. however, having contacted the sites concerned, I am not sure that this better to go is due only to EDGE dev.
I use logitech hardware (keyboard mouse) and therefore their drivers.
today and exceptionally, I disabled hyperthreading, to do some tests.
if it helps ...

Translate isn't working at all here. I'm using 2 languages (since I also speak Spanish, it's my native language), but things written in French, for example, simply don't trigger the translate feature. Using the Dev channel.

This update breaks the ability to scroll using touchpad on my pc. Scrolling is always too fast even when I'm going slow.
