Edge Dev 98.0.1089.1 Precision Touchpad pinch to zoom broken

Occasional Contributor

As the title: pinch to zoom has stopped working since the last update.

The gesture only adjusts text zoom on webpages.
It still works as intended in Edge stable so I'm ruling out any issues with drivers or OS.

I am having the same issue on a surface book 2, Edge 98.0.1089.1, when I pinch to zoom on the touchpad, the "zoom percentage" is increased instead of the smooth zooming like when you pinch to zoom with the touch screen. Other gestures also seem broken, like two finger swipe left and right to navigate back and forwards in history. 

Yep same issue.
LoL I doubt they bother. They're too busy adding other crap features like facebook integration. You can forget that they're going to fix it. You'd think a company as big as this can do basic QA testing before releases. But why bother, when they have guinea pigs like us to who willingly enroll in dev and beta channel for free to give "feedback" that they don't even bother reading/fixing.

Hey there folks! Thanks for reporting this, we've got a handful of reports outside of this thread and I'm able to reproduce this as well. I'm flagging this thread along with the others over on Reddit to the team for a closer look. I'll circle back here if we need anyone to file feedback for additional details on what specific touchpads and setting combinations are seeing this, as it's not happening for everyone. For now though, thank you again for reporting!
