UPDATE 3: 320.5 has been released with the fix for Netflix not working.
UPDATE 2: 320.4 has been released with the fix for the Task Bar icons issue. The Netflix issue is expected to be fixed in another update tomorrow.
UPDATE: We're expecting to release a small update in the next day or two to fix an issue where users with multiple browser profiles still see the old Edge icon on the Task Bar, and an issue where Netflix doesn't work.
Hello insiders, we’ve got some big news today! With today’s Dev Channel update to 80.0.320.3, we’re officially releasing a new icon for all Microsoft Edge channels. You can read more about it here: https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2019/11/04/edge-chromium-release-candidate-get-ready. That page also contains a date, January 15th, which is when we expect to release our first Stable Channel build, at which point Edge will be generally available to download on Windows and Mac.
Some of you may have noticed a cryptic update last week. That was part of a series of puzzles that hundreds of insiders participated in over the past weekend. The puzzles culminated in a surfing game hidden inside Edge, and the reward for beating it was the chance to see the new icon before anybody else. You can click here for instructions on how to unlock the game, or just search Twitter for #FindWhatsNext to try solving some of the puzzles!
With all of these exciting announcements, we do have a few known issues that are still in this week’s build:
And now, for all of the new things that are worth noting:
Thank you to everybody who’s been using Edge over the past year. With our GA just around the corner, we hope you know that this is just the beginning of our journey. The Edge Insider program and builds will continue even when there’s a Stable build available, and your feedback on them will be as crucial as ever!

@Basaingeal For me the new icon doesn't show in the taskbar or the taskbar, but it does on the start menu. The reason it does not appear in the taskbar is because it points to "Edge Profile.ico" inside the profile folder, which hasn't been updated.
EDIT: You can fix this by creating a new profile and deleting it, when doing this the ico file will be replaced with the new one even for the old profile.
@josh_bodner Happy to see the jumplist issue being acknowledged in today's changelog!

- Sometimes the browser will appear to not respond to any user input (clicking or scrolling in webpages doesn’t do anything, hovering over UI doesn’t make it change), but clicking on certain buttons still works (like the … menu). The cause of this is due to an error in the GPU process, and opening the browser task manager (right-click near the window minimize/maximize/close buttons or hit shift+esc on the keyboard) will open a window that will allow you to end the GPU process, which will fix the issue.
This issue has been plaguing me for weeks. This would happen every time after visiting a page that used the `background-filter` CSS property. Glad to see it being acknowledged and to know about a workaround.

@josh_bodner Please make Chromium Edge scrolling the exact same as Classic Edge scrolling on multi-touch trackpad and touchscreen devices.
Areas for improvement:
(And yes, these actually are deal breakers for me when it comes to using Chromium Edge instead of Classic Edge)

I still have no Remove button for this -- just Edit.
To expand on this, I set the GPO setting NonRemovableProfileEnabled to false. I still cannot do anything with the default profile. Its gets created no matter what with my domain user. I have confirmed though edge://policy that the setting is present.

Josh, this is all, certainly, terrific. However, there is a rather serious situation, still, needing to be rectified and that is the multi desktop behavior. Still, opening where, already, a browser open instead, of (staying) in the correct, presently used/viewed desktop. Do we have an ETA on the fix for that?

@josh_bodner Are there any changes planned in the favourites? Favourite button - The Favourite bar should be in the form of a folder, not a developed list. Other favorites - this should not be a folder, but a developed list. In general, the classic Edge solution in this area should be restored, because it is more convenient. The solution taken from Chrome is an inconvenient way to overgrow content over form. To the extent that it disqualifies me from using Edge as a basic browser for Firefox, which has a sensibly solved favorite - a button that gives direct access to the main favorites.
11-05-2019 02:05 PM
You are not alone. Many of use want what's in Edge with the Favs button be carried over to Edge C.
Now, regarding "Other favorites". IF there is nothing in that, it disappears. If nothing is added to it, it stays gone. You may have nothing needed in there, presently or it's redundant stuff... at any rate, if all currently in there are deleted (albeit, 1 by 1) "Other favorites" will not show, anymore.

I get this too. Edge Canary updated and opens fine; Edge Dev crashed on opening after the update restart, leaving an msedge.exe in the task manager, and crashes every open since, whether I end the msedge.exe from the last attempt first or not.

If you're having trouble getting the icon to update (nothing already mentioned in this thread fixed it for me unfortunately), just sign out of Sync and straight back in, that's fixed it for me on all PCs I've tried so far (you won't lose anything, just make sure to not tick the option to clear your browsing data).

From the all well known browsers why Edge beta is the second on this list?
11-05-2019 04:41 PM
@kqf_chris I talked with somebody on our identity team, and apparently there's still a known issue where, if you're signing into Windows with a work or school account, then that same account will get added as a profile in Edge that you can't remove. Do you think this is what you're running into?
11-05-2019 04:44 PM
@Drew1903 unfortunately no ETA on the fix since it's coming from upstream Chromium. For what it's worth, our OS integration team does want to look into our support for virtual desktops more closely since we haven't done any work there ourselves yet, but the work isn't that high of a priority since virtual desktops were never super popular among Windows users.
11-05-2019 04:46 PM
@andypat there are a few known crashes that we're tracking. One of them is related to sync (a different issue than the one last week even though it's the same behavior), so if you can get to edge://settings/profiles/sync fast enough to disable sync that might help you.
11-05-2019 04:48 PM
@HotCakeX I updated the original release notes post, but I'll mention down here too that there's a known bug for the Task Bar icons not updating properly, and we're going to try to push out a fix for it over the next day or two. There are a few other places that we're also aware of that don't have the proper icons yet (Task Manager, the all apps list in the Start Menu, the Windows Search results pane), but if you find any other places the icons aren't getting updated, please let us know!
11-05-2019 06:02 PM
Where do I start?
Scrollbar overlay is still broken. I don't have the overlay scrollbar as I had it turned on previously and the option to turn it on is still missing.
Scrolling is broken to **bleep** again, feels like the old Edge (BAD) and the last time I had this problem I disabled "experimental smooth scrolling" or something like that and THAT flag is also missing.
Are these changes meant to be this way or typical development woes? I'm genuinely curious because I totally understand development (game developer) and things can and will go wrong, but if these changes are planned, well, I'm out.

So many issues with the new taskbar icon, I don't even know where to start. Clean install doesn't fix these issues. Here's just two:
See attached screenshot. Now I have a "double icon" on the taskbar when the browser is open. As you can see, Chrome & Opera (and even notepad) are behaving correctly. There is no workaround, eventually the "double icon" will appear. Never happened prior to today's update.
Also, the right-click options have now vanished when the browser is closed but are there when the browser is open. Never happened prior to today's update.
UPDATE: it appears both of the issues have been solved in this forum: "unpin the icons, then with browser open pin them again." I had un-pinned & re-pinned many times but not with the browser open. Definitely a weird glitch (& only happens if you unpin the original taskbar icons & then re-pin new ones).

New icons look way too similar to Firefox's icons. Below pic is Edge Beta Icon to the left and Firefox Nightly to the right:

A new bug?
In beta - when you click on the url field, the onscreen keyboard is displayed on my surface
in Dev and Canary, it used to bring up the keyboard but now it tries to select the text. Even if it's an empty field. Please advice since this is very bad
