I understand there may be reason higher up the corporate ladder for wanting the inclusion of the Microsoft News Feed permanently in one way or another but please add an option to completely remove the bar at the bottom of the new tab page. It's ugly and obtrusive and ultimately kind of ruins the idea of the 'Inspirational' or 'Focused' layout being what they are describing. The News Feed is the Number one reason for the people I know refusing the switch to Old Edge. It will cripple the initial adoption of New Edge when it eventually released to market. Untitled.png

Except it is a Controlled Feature Roll-out.

Doesn't matter. the feature is added by Microsoft (as the OP requested) and done anyway.
it was added more than 3 weeks ago, chances are everybody will have it very soon, if not already.
