How about if the Edge controls inherit the accent color from the OS?

That'd be good, there are many areas where accent color could be respected in Edge UI
Thats a great idea. It would feel more consistent with the UI.

I seem to recall when I suggested this months back your reply was something along the lines of "you cannot expect the Windows accent colour to appear in the Edge UI as Edge is a Win32 app, not a UWP app... please understand the difference"

How times change!
the icons of the toolbar could perhaps have an accent color depending on the edge theme or the windows theme, right? What do you think about that ?
