Hello Insiders! Today we’re releasing build 86.0.601.1 to the Dev channel. It’s a small week for updates this week, so here’s everything that’s noteworthy:
As always, we couldn’t do this without your feedback!

@josh_bodner As far as the video issues I've been going on and on about earlier in the previous thread, I filed bug 4954 over at angleproject. Lets see if anything comes of it. My current workaround is forcing an alternative ANGLE backend, and it seems to work so far.

@josh_bodner After opening up Microsoft Edge for a while (even during idle), it will spike CPU to 100% for some no reason. It will stay the same until it is killed from Task Manager. This happens on Version 86.0.601.1 (Official build) dev (64-bit). It forces me to use Firefox as of now.
I have sent the feedback but just want to know if it is actually a known issue or not and wonder when it will get fixed.

@josh_bodner Playing around some more last night I could not get it to work by turning anything off, etc. I did finally get it to work in InPrivate mode. So I gave in, bit the bullet, and reset Edge to the defaults. It appears to be working again in both the production version and the dev version I'm running on this machine. Maybe something just got crosswired in a previous update somewhere, as generally, I don't mess with those particular settings.

@josh_bodner Some feedback on the new vertical tab experience..
I will keep playing around with it and share anything else that pops up.

@josh_bodner - I put in a feedback for it, but Discord.com is not working in the dev channel, even in privacy mode. I haven't tried to do more troubleshooting on what is failing, however InPrivate doesn't fix it.
It's still working fine in release channel, fails immediately after login on dev channel.

@tulis the next time you see high CPU from Edge, can you hit shift+esc to open the Browser Task Manager and see which process (or processes) are causing it? I suspect it's something on a particular website like a bad ad that's causing it, and if it is, then killing just the offending process should return things to normal.

@Michael Jones that's why I usually keep the vertical tab pane expanded! If you haven't already, make sure you submit this via feedback as well, that way we can get an accurate count of all the people who feel the same way. Also, don't forget that there are keyboard shortcuts for closing a tab (ctrl+W) and muting a tab (ctrl+M), right-click menu options for both, and my personal favorite: middle clicking a tab anywhere closes it (if you've got a device with a modern trackpad, you likely can also set a gesture for middle click; mine is the three-finger tap).
