on Edge legacy, the address bar highlight color is the same as Windows 10's accent color while on the new Edge it's a pale default white/blue color.

Here is a video demo: https://streamable.com/ucs533

 

Edge legacy's Address bar was really beautiful because of this..

I really hope the new Edge gets the same style.

sending the same post as feedback from Edge, if you like this please do the same.

Yes, that would be very appreciated! The browser will become more beautiful if they involve the use of Accent color in different areas in the browser.

Great idea, totally agree

so these need to change with Windows 10 accent color

A toggle button can also be added in here: edge://settings/appearance

so that users can choose whether they want Windows accent color have these effects in Edge or not

Yeah, that would be very nice indeed!

@HotCakeX I didn't even notice that. That would be a great feature as I like everything colorful. The background of the address bar should have color as well. The light and dark is boring.

And even though Edge is available on other operating systems, it can just fall back to blue. problem solved.
