Added a page in Settings to choose your desired New Tab Page layout.
I believe this setting is NOT needed, as its available on the New Tab page. I suggest to combine On Startup and New Tab Page pages in Settings into one with 2 above subsections. In New Tab Page subsection, offer choice:
- User Set Layout
- Empty Tab
- Open a Web Page
Generally, try cutting the list of Settings pages to bare minimum, and make each such page contain many relevant settings, not just left almost empty.

in the inprivate windows, it is still very difficult to distinguish the active tab, it does not differ from the rest

I know that maybe it's a bit to much to ask custom search engine on the new tab.
So, could we, at least, remove the search field?

@orlando2bjr the "new tab URL" chrome extension works in Edge also. It will let you set the new tab page to whatever URL you want.
It would be nice if they added "blank page" and a custom URL to the new tab page.

Oh it's so weird talking to people and not by name, geesh.
Anyway, > Chrome store and grab this extension (see below). I did heaps of looking & experimenting... and, it will do exactly what you want... although, maybe not using the Bing Daily picture, but, you will, still, probably love what all there is available (for background). Trust me, from 1st hand use, this is perfect. And look what one of the options is :beaming_face_with_smiling_eyes:
This is it installed
Just go grab it HERE & there you go :thumbs_up::thumbs_up::ok_hand:
And see, no search bar
In fact, the search bar is not needed since the address/search box is (always) at the top of the page, anyway; one hardly needs 2 search boxes on the same page, good point.

Using the dark theme, the active tab is nearly impossible to guess. Here it is slightly lighter due to the clipping tool, but not when viewed on the monitor:
06-20-2019 12:40 AM
The solution is to use an OS Accent colour that affords a certain amount of contrast. And have checked ✔ Show accent colour on Title bars & window borders.
I run Dark & have no trouble seeing the tabs. I found out it depends on the OS Accent colour used how easy or hard it is to see the tabs.

Excellent recommendation was excellent. Many thanks - just what I was looking for! Have just signed up to the forum to thank you. Don't seem to be able to like your post but consider yourself morally liked.
Meanwhile - seriously, Microsoft, let us change the search provider on the new tab screen. I can't imagine this is any more than a few lines of code. It comes across as a deliberate choice of a dark pattern.

You are most welcome :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes: And, thanks for the 'Like' ;) Yes, in that NTP you can, indeed, pick a search engine, so true. Although, with this one can, also, not even have the Search bar showing (btw). We are talking about Infinite Dashboard (extension) from the Chrome store. The videos for backgrounds are neat, too.
Here is an example of tabs being easy to see whilst using Dark Mode

This is about problem I had with either one version of edge dev before this one (xx.2) or ahci intel driver.
I don't know is it edge dev problem but maybe it is (I don't even know if edge can do that, what was the problem)
My computer would start blu ray (seek noise, led on) while there is no disk present.
This behaviour happened few times a day.
After I unintalled edge dev and switched intel ahci for ms ahci it stopped.
Its hard to say that it is either edge dev or intel ahci related but it is possible.
I now reinstalled edge dev but left ms ahci.
So far so good.

Just wanted to point out some issues I've been experiencing. I've been having recurring issues on video playing sites mainly Netflix. Generally, it would run and load significantly slower than usual comparing to old Edge.
Video playback would freeze after pause/play. (doesn't feel as snappy as old edge)
The page would crash when loading video.

Everyone knows that the canary channel is available to Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 now, but I'm using the latest Dev build on Windows 8.1! It's working without any problem! I think it's about time to put the Dev channel on Windows 8.1, because it's working perfectly on my Windows 8.1 device.

Hi @josh_bodner Could you please consider adding a second row to the "frequent visited pages" in the empty tab? I do really use that a lot in firefox.
06-20-2019 02:54 PM
I'd just like to compliment you and your team on one aspect of your Dark Mode that I don't think I've seen any other browser get right before: skinning the page loading screen! Every other browser I've seen has a bright white page loading screen, even in dark mode, but this one has a gray to match the rest of the theme!
06-20-2019 09:55 PM
@josh_bodner I am LOVING this EDGE CHROMIUM browser, however I am still waiting for that Active X integration so I dont have to use the old explorer just for some SharePoint functions. How about it guys can you integrate it or maybe change the SharePoint features to use some JS or HTML 5 magic to get us on track?

I don`t really that it is a feature or not but whenever i open a web page in new tab either by using scroll button or open in a new tab option, a tab group group is being automatically created irrespective of my consent. I would really hope if this changes in future builds. It is rather annoying for me this whole tab group thing.
And really loving to the edge`s team effort to bring the best of web experience to us. Would love to see fluent design elements in future builds. and the new PDF reader does n`t abide by theme settings of Edge. It is still white irrespective of theme
06-26-2019 02:23 PM
Silly me, I can't decipher which of you has the New tab issue 🤨:thinking_face: Whoever it is, please, provide a snip of what you are seeing with New tab. Thanks. Whether New tab is opening a new browser window OR being opened in an existing window of tabs, all you should have is that ONE page. What you are describing doesn't sound like any "Feature" you should have. Anxious to see snip. Anxious to know which of you is the OP, lol.
Please, keep reporting the PDF behavior to Feedback. This may be similar to Reading view... having things, but, (as yet) without their Features & Tools 🤷:male_sign:.
06-26-2019 02:42 PM
So I'm not sure what you're referring to, but attached is a screen snip of my tabs bar with 2 Group tabs, one purple and one orange. I don't know how they got created. At one time the purple one was the first tab on the left side, but while moving another tab, it got moved. I can't remove it, move it or open it. It's just there taking up space.
How do I get rid of these?
Also, I'd like to see the arrow at the end of the displayed tabs indicating there are more. I can't get to ones that aren't shown. It's frustrating to have a payment tab, for instance, open at the right side, then have to get some information to fill in from another tab. I can't get to the last tab on the right. There used to be (in old Edge) the arrow, Most helpful. Please bring it back.
06-26-2019 05:11 PM
I'll deal with your 2nd query first. You are referring to individual tab Thumbnails and the :downwards_button: that shows historical ones. The current lack of this has been brought to the Edge C Team's attention. It would be good if you, also, submitted it to Feedback. We are in the early stages & it is one a few things, missing, right now.
Now, those 'group' things. Sounds like I misunderstood... Thought you were saying this had something to do with opening New tab page. Anyway, moving on... Neither do I know what they are or their origin. Have to admit they are not familiar to me. But, that said, I see you have a lot of added stuff to the right of the address bar & some I don't recognize. Maybe, you have added something that has produced these things. If you close the browser completely and re-open, what tabs show?
And, btw, Dev is now 18.104.22.168 Please, update & then, continue our discussion. Thanks.
06-27-2019 01:26 PM
Yes, so the lack of being able to see tabs to the right is very frustrating. There can be many more tabs open that I can't see or close or get to.

Paul, I had a wee chuckle reading this, "not occurred on my Asus desktop, only my HP", because, for years I have been a fan of ASUS and not, of HP. Yes, I know those are extensions... it crossed my mind about toolbars, but, no there isn't any of that or those (browser toolbars not, taskbar toolbars). Could it, actually, be an HP thing? Those buttons are unfamiliar to me. But, I'm going to try a visual search, just have to find your snip, again. Well, that didn't help.
I have to remember I have a Bing Insider meeting in a couple of hours.
BTW, if you Rt Clk on those extension icons there is Move to menu instead, of them all showing on the toolbar all the time. The reverse is Move to toolbar when they are in the menu.

You're welcome, Paul. Wish I could say something insightful about those Group buttons. I've never seen them before & can't guess, successfully, at their origin; nor could I find out anything about them. Quite the mystery. Surely, someone (else) can shed some light on this one :crossed_fingers:. You don't have them on Edge, correct? (Just on Dev & Canary)
