Hello Insiders! Today we’re releasing build 86.0.615.3 to the Dev channel. We also posted an article last week about an upcoming feature that will give you more control over copying and pasting: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/articles/announcing-a-new-way-to-paste-urls-link-format/m-p/1.... As for today, here’s everything that’s noteworthy:
As always, we couldn’t do this without you!

So impressed that effort was focused to give us Pinterest suggestions in Collections, but I still cannot sync my open tabs or history.... Maybe there's a third party that would be willing to pay you to enable either of these remaining features. 🤷:male_sign:

I still don't like the idea to integrate with 3rd party website as a built-in functions. I don't use pinterest at all. So this new feature does not excite me. I just hope this kind of integration will not slow down the browser or cause security concern in the future.
"Scrolling" seems better to me.
Love these two:

Don't see any settings to enable secure DNS.
Something broken with search in address bar. If you change search engine then you can't open 'about:flags', for example. It will open search page with words 'about' and 'flags'.

@MatureScarab582 since vertical tabs hasn't been enabled in code yet, the only way to get it is via our experimentation platform. Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks of that is that every time Edge updates, it reassesses the probability for whether or not to enable the feature, assuming that it's not turned on for 100% of people. Once it's turned on in code, which means everybody will get it, I'll mention it in the release notes.

@josh_bodner I tested it with new clean profile without any settings and extensions.
I found the cause of the problem. This is the setting:
'Show me suggestions from history, favorites and other data on this device using my typed characters'.
If you disable it, all requests in the address bar will be sent to the search engine. Even URLs with '/' at the end or without 'https'.

@josh_bodner Focus on general feature implementations that work across the web. I don't use Opera precisely because they have built in twitter, whatsapp and instagram. A software tool shouldn't have integration with a website because that compromises neutrality of the tool itself.

The vertical tabs are great, however they are not very touch friendly.
If you are using a finger touch, it is difficult to hit a correct pixel, perhaps the active area could be made bigger.
Also it is not possible to expand the sidebar using touch. Only mouse or pen can expand it by clicking on the tab that is open.
Closing the tabs could be made easier by dragging them off somewhere. Currently it is hard as the right click with touch is very difficult to make on a tab because of the issue described above.

@dung_h2 the way everyone refers to this can be confusing but it's under "Flags," not "Settings."
unfortunately, I'm not sure if that actually works... Firefox is showing that it uses DNS over HTTPS when I test it with sites such as https://22.214.171.124/help or https://www.cloudflare.com/ssl/encrypted-sni/. Edge still doesn't...
I tried adding the EnableAutoDoh key to the Registry and rebooting, but that didn't help.
