One of the things I like in the Firefox is the possibility of using containers.
Mozilla have two containers add-on's, Facebook Container (exclusively to the Facebook) and Multi-Account Containers.
The first is used to prevent Facebook tracking our online activity by creating an isolated and exclusive environment. Where every cookie, every tracking script, APIs that Facebook creates / uses / have, are isolated inside the container.
And the second, is almost the same thing as the first, works by creating an isolated environment as well, but is for any website.
The containers are, a some kind, sandboxes.
I'd like to see the support for this in the Edge.
Microsoft need to bring this to the Edge, but in a natively way without the need of installing any extension.
And the option to create a container tab can be placed next to the profile avatar, for example.
By the way, Chrome/Chromium do not have support for this.
This is a very very useful.

I do not know if I can put this kind of links, but, if I broke any rule, I'll remove this post.

i second this. is there any possibility of adding container tabs in Edge. this is the main feature I exclusively use firefox for.

Some kind of identity container solution would be amazing. I currently use Firefox because of this feature alone. Firefox has its limitations though and would certainly welcome this feature in the new Edge, which i'd be happy to switch across if something like that was developed.

I upvote and second this request, since it would be an amazing addition to the browser and directly contribute to the security of Edge. I would be glad to make it my main browser if this happens.

@hferreira107 Containers would be a solid addition to Edge Chromium, as important for security as isolating Edge Chromium itself from the OS. Isolating the browser from the OS is a minimum requirement for security, but it doesn't safeguard within the browser, as containers do.

This is an amazing feature. Please implement this in Edge--it will bring in a lot of users & actually have a tangible effect on the world's privacy state.
Likewise, Edge can even leapfrog Firefox's containers: Firefox doesn't sync containers (not even the data; even their mere existence!) between devices. Crazy.
Edge, do better. We're not cave people: make Edge sync containers across devices.

it's not necessary really. just go through this forum, the Edge team support always reply to the topics that they think is useful or they just chose to. if they haven't replied to this one yet there must be a reason. either they don't want to add this feature or they just can't due to limitations of Chromium.
either way, don't need to go to another website. they clearly said that this forum is the place for suggestions/feedbacks/talks about the new Edge. after all you can't force someone to make their product better. sometimes they just don't want to.

This is the feature that I'm waiting on. I've been using Firefox exclusively for this reason alone (i.e. the ability to keep multiple Office 365 and Microsoft Accounts separated). If/when Microsoft extends Edge to support this feature, I'll move to Edge. Until then, I'll continue to use Firefox - though I'll regularly check back on Edge to see how it's progressing.

Just chiming in again. This is not just for privacy!
Containers are also super useful for productivity, Microsoft! Lots of us have multiple accounts, like Gmail, Google Drive, Notion, Dropbox, etc. People have one personal account and one business account. Switching between them can be a nightmare w/ cookies & passwords, so containers can ensure we have easy access.
Because they limit the cookies to just that tab, then you can always open up your personal Dropbox and business Dropbox easily without any need to logout, cookies, etc.
For people who aren't used to containers: containers keep your website "just inside that single tab", so it doesn't infect the whole browser. "Oh, you're logged into your personal Dropbox in this one tab? Well, let me log you out of every other Dropbox tab w/ your business account! Surely that's what you wanted, right?"
Cookies can be stupid. Containers make them smart.

Yes, you are right.
Containers are much more than only privacy.
They are very useful for productivity, like you said.
The problem is, chromium do not support containers. They need to dig in the code and changing a bunch of things and all the relative code.
And, apparently, the Edge team do not have any interest to do that.
So far they have not yet shown any interest.

Please, please, PLEASE! With Scroogle actively sabotaging any non-Chromium based browsers to bog down performance for services like YouTube, and outright refusing to support them for something like Earth, I really did not enjoy my recent months with Firefox, even through the rest of the browser works beautifully on every other website.
BUT it is the Container Tabs feature that I found the most fundamental browser extention after uBlock, HTTPS everywhere and similar extensions, especially for those extremely annoying social network "log in with" buttons.
Microsoft is better than Google in terms of privacy, and having container tabs for terrible terrible trackers like them is a must have for Chromium Edge.
We shall no longer be #scroogled! Please bring container tabs to Chromium Edge and restore our faith in online privacy at least a little bit.

The new Edge does allow you to create multiple profiles and to sign in using an AAD account but it's not the same as containers in Firefox, profiles were meant to distinct between stuff like 'work' and 'personal'... I don't want to create 10 profiles to manage 10 tenants and then have 10 instances of Edge open with each their own settings, synchronization, history, ...

I totally agree with this. This is really the key feature that currently keeps me with Firefox over the new Edge, which I feel is a really solid browser so far. If they could add that feature in I would really consider switching over to Edge as my main browser. I already have my other two key extensions available.

As many others have said here...
This is really the key feature that currently keeps me with Firefox
As we have progressed though the Insider releases, Edge has continued to improve greatly. I am far and away ready to adopt it as my daily driver except for the fact that it is missing this CRITICAL productivity and privacy tool that I rely on in Firefox daily. Until and unless Edge incorporates equivalent functionality, I do not see the Firefox audience being open to shifting over.

and now firefox just released another big must-have update to their container feature: container sync. you create containers on one machine, and it automatically syncs everywhere.
