I was able to use my Surface pen to annotate webpages, pdf files, etc. on Microsoft Edge
Please bring the functionality on Chromium Edge as well.
Also, the sharing with OneNote, Nearby Sharing, and with other apps is also missing in the new Chromium Edge.
However, please keep it unique to Chromium Edge only.
Cortana, Ink annotation, Sharing options, etc. are what keeping Edge unique from others.

@drcza Especially for us waiting for our new machines Nov 5 - anxiously waiting to see what Edge features will be installed on the new Pro X.

I hope all of the suggested features in here be implemented into the browser Before the final stable release.

I wish we did have time frames or dates for feature requests.
The great thing is that these feature requests are getting sent in and getting attention.
The engineering team is working hard to get them out as soon as they can, but have to make sure they don't effect any other features or cause crashing, and are as functional as possible.
Thanks everyone for your feature request and please keep sending them in.

@soumitra2102 I'm surprise to not see this thread having more comments. To me, this is of utmost important for pro user. This is the things that you'd think should always be there, and then you forgot about it, then one day it's gone and you realize how much you miss using it.
Please escalate this and prioritize this.

I hope we get the ink support, I absolutely use the PDF annotations and OneNote integration all the time - it's the primary use of my SP4. Looking forward to seeing it in Edge Chromium - the OneNote integration now is OK but all it is is bookmarks and screenshots.

I installed the new Chromium Edge that was released Jan 15. It did replace the Edge classic (I knew it would). Pen support on my Surface Pro is lacking. You get blue ink, that's it! No option for pen width. The eraser on the pen no longer functions, you must select the eraser icon and use it to erase. There is no highlighter. Edge was my default for viewing and marking up pdf files but no longer. I'll no longer use Edge in class for highlighting web pages to students and I'll no longer recommend students use Edge for viewing and marking up pdf files.
I understand the Chromium Edge is a work in progress and it takes time to add functionality. I do hope these inking functions that were available in classic edge will make it into the new Chromium Edge soon.
Other than the loss of pen functionality, I like the new Edge.
I tried the procedure for Legacy/Chromium Stable Edge side-by-side. However my Win 10 Pro did not have the referenced setting in Group Policy Editor (my Win 10 Home system doesn't even have Group Policy Editor). I did a search and found a process for enabling side-by-side with a change to the registry. After the registry change, I did not get the Legacy Edge, still Chromium only. I had to remove Chromium Edge and reinstall it to get both versions. I now have both versions that I can use. That will work for my current needs.
Maybe I'll look into canary and Dev later, when I'm feeling brave.
Ink support, Cortana help on context, Automatic lyrics pop-up on playing a song, able to annotate pdfs, etc. are the features why I'm still sticking to the old Microsoft Edge.
Hope to see these features exclusive to New Microsoft (Chromium) Edge.
@soumitra2102Wow, agree completely! Until inking works like Classic Edge I will not be happy!
Right now I get nothing at all when I click on a text box. NOTHING.
