Why are users not allowed to customize a New Tab in the real sense, meaning if they want a new tab to go to a specific URL?  It seems that Microsoft is forcing users by only allowing content from 'Microsoft' like Bing Search, O365 or Microsoft News.  This is NOT customization.

@Derek Newton 

Hi there, welcome to the Microsoft Edge Insider Community!
I would like this feature to come into Microsoft Edge as the users who mostly use one website on their browser can access the website when opening a new tab easily.
I have sent feedback through the in-built feedback system(Alt+Shift+I) in Microsoft Edge Chromium and I also recommend you to send feedback by this way also.

@theshaunsaw I appreciate that.  I have already sent feedback back to Microsoft.
