Hello Insiders! Today we’re releasing build 90.0.810.1 to the Dev channel. Before we get into all the specifics, we’ve got a few exciting things to talk about:
And now, for everything else:
For Stable users, look for version 89 to be heading your way shortly!

Still no option to refresh all open tabs?
say you want to refresh 5 tabs at the same time, select the 1st tab, then hold Shift and click on the 5th tab, that highlights them all, now press refresh or F5 on keyboard.
i personally don't need yet another right-click menu, i think there are already too many without an option to remove them.
but if you do, there are extensions to use.

I've written at some length in my own thread and on your thread about the new extensions manager dropdown menu, so here I'll just re-emphasise that an extension manager is not the same thing as a toolbar overflow menu for toolbar buttons, and while I don't honestly care about you adding the extensions manager dropdown, I DO really REALLY care about you having removed the toolbar button overflow. The new extensions manager dropdown does NOT make up for the loss of the toolbar button overflow menu for me. The old overflow at the top of the More menu was just the 18 buttons not on the toolbar, just to press them not manage, out of the way but quick to reach, all in a small area visible at once for pressing, and I could re-order them like the buttons in the toolbar, in my case to ones I used at the top, the ones that don't do anything (as the extension is always running) at he bottom. The extensions manager is a long scrolling list, one per line, in alphabetical order, of all 27 buttons INCLUDING the ones already on the toolbar, with room for symbols and menu openers for all the management tools for each. As a lightweight extensions manager dropdown it's fine. As a toolbar button overflow it is appalling.
It's incredible. Every time you get edge to a point where I think 'It's now useable for general browsing', the very next update you add or remove something that wrecks it for me. I need a toolbar button overflow with the functionality it had before. With your extensions manager dropdown is fine. But the loss of a useable (to me, with the extensions I use and the browsing I do) toolbar button overflow means Canary and Dev are now unusable for me (Stable and Beta are still unusable for reasons only recently fixed in Dev and Canary), and the short period in which I've been trying out Edge as my general browser has come to a screeching halt. I will now just be installing each Canary and Dev update just to run once only to look for the return of a useable toolbar button overflow..
For me this is a sine qua non issue, so I won't be looking at anything else unless and until I know that (unlike in Google Chrome, with this being one reason I'll never consider using that) you are going to address this satisfactorily.
Seriously, could no one in the team see that an extension manager is functionally and fundamentally a different thing to a toolbar button overflow so the former will not be a replacement for the latter, just something different?

I no longer seem to be able to swipe left or right with two fingers on the trackpad to go back/forwards a page. I have reported this using the Send Feedback option :) (edit: seems to be working sporadically)
I agree that I do miss the option to have extensions in the overflow area of the (...) menu - I don't like having my extensions on the menu bar, but also would prefer to hide the new extensions button in its current state as I don't need it regularly in my workflow.
One feature I would love to see in the new extensions menu would be the on/off toggle for individual extensions - this feature alone would make the new button worth keeping in the menu bar! I have a couple of Netflix extensions which don't work at the same time, so I frequently turn one on and the other off.
Also, I like how responsive the new extensions menu is! It seems a lot smoother and faster to render than the Collections, History, and Downloads menus which still have a noticeable delay when clicked.

Having a separator for the new extension button and not being able to hide it without having the ability to now hide your extensions to the context menu is terrible.

I sent feedback about a problem when working a stacked dual-monitor setup, but I didn't receive or read any confirmation of this being a problem.
Basically when you run a stacked dual-monitor setup, any new Edge window that is selected will expand in size at the top. For the top-monitor this is not a problem, because it is at the top. For the bottom-monitor, it is quite annoying and I believe should not be the default behaviour.
See how in Word windows, the black bar does not appear when the Window is either selected or unselected. For Edge windows, it should be clearly visible that when an Edge window on the bottom monitor is selected, a black bar appears at the top of the window.

@josh_bodner I would like to believe the team is already aware of this extra-long separator between the extensions menu button and the Collections button as it is easily noticeable which is why I didn't send a feedback. Compare its size with that of the separator before "Other favourites" folder on the favourites bar.

@josh_bodner thanks for fixing the hang on startup (may have been related to the multiple sign in crash bug)? In any case that 5 minute browser startup was... pretty hairy there for a while :) Still wish you'd reconsider the new download location. I still vastly prefer the bar at the bottom, and wish that was retained at least as an alternative, or additional feature we can turn on and off with settings.
