Hi Insiders, thanks so much for your feedback on the tab experience in the new Microsoft Edge. From reading your comments, it is clear that many of you would like an easy way to view more information about your tabs to quickly identify which one you are looking for. This problem can be particularly painful when you have many tabs open at once, perhaps appearing similar to each other with repeated site titles or icons, and you'd like to avoid having to switch to each of them to find the right one. Many of you specifically cite "tab preview" from the legacy version of Microsoft Edge as a helpful tool in this situation.

Top Feedback Item: Bring the tab preview feature from the current version of Microsoft Edge

As we investigate this feedback further, we'd like to ask for your help to make sure we are solving the right problem and get the experience just right. For example, in the Microsoft Edge Legacy , there were actually a couple of methods to preview the contents of a tab. One way was to hover over a tab, and a little thumbnail and description of that specific tab would appear with more information. Another method was to select an arrow to the right of the new tab button to open a persistent preview of all the open tabs simultaneously.

Could you tell us more about your experience in this area, and what you would like to see going forward? For example, which of the legacy version of Microsoft Edge tab preview features did you specifically use, and how did you use it? What problems did this feature help you solve and how? What types of information is particularly useful in a preview of a tab and why?

Thanks for your help, we look forward to working with you to improve the new Microsoft Edge in this area.

Bring the same Tab Previews/Thumbnails from Edge legacy to the new Edge (Chromium)

that was the best design you guys did.

other browsers are trying to mimic and copy Edge legacy, such as Chrome and Vivaldi.

I'm with you on this. I mostly used the hover previews but the way old Edge handled it allowed one to see all previews at once, which seems like the best of both worlds. The arrow button offers another feature as well, namely the ability to see all tabs with a greater width at the same time, which would become even more relevant now with the current tab behavior where tabs just get smaller and smaller, unlike old Edge which offered a scrolling list at some point (which I prefer).
Highlighted

@Elliot Kirk  , both features are great and should be brought over but if I had to pick it would be the view of all open tabs. One upgrade though would make both the thumbnail and the view of all tabs live e.g. if one of the tabs is playing a video you can watch it progress.

@Elliot Kirk Hi,

Both of the features implemented in the Tab Preview feature in the Microsoft Edge Legacy should bee brought to the new Edge. Both of them have been very useful.

Highlighted
I agree. Both of these features initially came from Opera (the persistent view going back to the Presto days) and are essentially seen as a design standard these days. Edge should support both with live preview.
Highlighted
Yeah I almost forgot how Opera was creative during pre-Chromium era.
Highlighted

@Elliot Kirk  I agree with the others, both methods should be brought back

Highlighted

@Elliot Kirk I have to throw my vote in as hovering the mouse over the tabs to show the contents. I don't recall if in Edge Legacy hovering over a single tab brought all of them into view, or if it simply showed the one being hovered over. I think, the latter. Also, the arrow to show all the tabs. I used the hover more than the button, but both ways are crucially important, I believe.

 

Regards,

@HotCakeX I agree 100%. Chromium Edge's lack of those two features was why I delayed switching to it as my primary browser for so long. I used them extensively and I still find tab management in other browsers cumbersome by comparison. Adding legacy Edge's tab preview features into Chromium Edge has always been at the top of my wish list.

 

This should also entail a scrolling tab list. Having to click, tap or hover on a tiny little favicon when you have lots of tabs open is pretty ridiculous. There needs to be a minimum tab width like in legacy Edge. :)

Highlighted
I use a Surface Pro 7 exclusively as a tablet (touch only and Tablet Mode on). Having the arrow button to make the tab strip larger, scrollable with previews is a MUST when more than 5 or 6 tabs are open and using touch only. The main reason I refuse to switch to new Edge is because of its poor usability with touch and Tablet Mode (seriously why is there a minimize and maximize/restore button on new Edge on tablet mode when they do nothing...but I digress)
Highlighted

@Elliot Kirk I only relied on the hover preview and would definitely like that back -- I never used the All Tabs Preview. I can see the latter being very helpful in tablet mode tho' (I rarely use Windows in tablet mode which is why I never used the All Tabs Preview I suspect).

Highlighted
Just like legacy edge, that feature should be implemented just like that. Hope to see this soon.
Highlighted
Personally, I always liked to hover over a tab, and a little thumbnail and description of that specific tab would appear with more information and I do not believe I've ever used the other and can not give any input as to its value. Though if your going to add one, you might as well add them both.

@CLove3 

yes a scrollable tabstrip is really great. previously on Edge, there was a flag with the same name, it never worked, and eventually they removed it.

Highlighted

@Elliot Kirk 

I use both tab preview features in legacy Edge (hovering over a tab and selecting the arrow). Both are needed when I have tabs with no icons or tabs which have the same icons, particularly if I have many tabs. The hover feature is useful when I just want to check a few tabs, and having previews of all tabs show up is useful i I want to scroll through many tabs, and when using touch.

 

I would love to be able to set up Edge so that when Windows switches to tablet mode, Edge goes to fullscreen mode and I can bring down the tabs, address bar, etc. by swiping down from the top edge of the screen, and I would like the tabs to always be shown with previews in this mode. This would provide a very similar experience to Internet Explorer on Windows 8 which I think was great on tablets.

Highlighted

@Elliot Kirk I did like tab preview, especially for touch devices (and the way it is used on Xbox One). Adding this into the new Edge would be a sensible move, and would ensure that Edge continued to be more capable/usable on tablets and other small form factor Windows devices.

@Elliot Kirk 

 

Hey, I was wondering if the 'send tab to devices' option is going to be added anytime soon. The only feature that is stopping me from porting from google chrome to MS edge is the lack of this feature. When i'm reading a pdf or from a website on my computer and need it on my ipad, i use this feature to send it to my other device.

@Elliot Kirk 

 

Yes, please bring tab previews to edge. Personally I am more of a fan of single tab highlighting previews, but a tab preview button that shows all tabs previews would be nice as well.

 

If single tab previews were brought in please make sure the delay in preview isn't overly long, I think a 2s delay before preview is good.

Highlighted

@Elliot Kirk Please implement BOTH ways (hovering AND the arrow button) because they are both extremely useful and were amongst the best features of the old Edge.
Also please implement scrolling in the tab bar... When you have multiple tabs opened, they get very very tiny and basically useless. The way the old Edge handled this (by making the tabs scrollable) made it perfect.

Highlighted
2s is way too long. If i wanted to wait 2 seconds for every tab preview to appear, i could just click on each tab manually and see their contents myself.

to view the preview of 10 tabs, it would take 20 seconds. with my mouse I can cycle through 10 tabs in less than 7-8 seconds.

so I think the tab previews must be instant not to waste users time and be Actually useful.

@HotCakeX  I used opera but now I abandoned it.

@HotCakeX 

 

After you start the tab preview the others can pop up instantly after mousing over them (much like old edge), but tab previews intially should not be instant. I don't want to see a tab preview every time I move my mouse over the tab; if you go to move tabs or pull out to another window you shouldn't instantly be getting a preview of that tab if all you're doing is tab management.

 

2s might be high (and can be lowered) but I don't feel like it should be lower than 1 second (I believe old edge had a 1s delay). Tab previews haven't even been seen before by a large number of users I'm betting (people coming from Chrome, IE, Firefox) and having an instant preview could be a jarring experience for them and could be annoying if they instantly pop up every time.

 

If a tab preview button (like the old set aside button, but for all tabs) is implemented that showed all tab previews at once it would/should be instant.

I think how it works in legacy Edge is fine. There is a initial 1 second delay but after that if you move your mouse over other tabs, the preview instantly appears. Giving users the option to customize the preview delay or disable previews entirely also makes sense but I think having it enabled with a 1 second initial delay would be a good default.

@CLove3 

 

An option to disable the preview, if implemented, would make sense. I assume if hardware acceleration is turned off it would also need to disable the tab preview option as well, not sure though.

Giving users the option to customize the preview delay or disable previews entirely also makes sense but I think having it enabled with a 1 second initial delay would be a good default.


 

Yeah agree with you too! ^

@adrianghc The arrow dropdown also was a lifesaver when I was using my laptop as a tablet.

@Dan_AI4GK I recorded a video for you, since I still have the legacy edge. Another feature they should consider adding back is refresh all tabs. Its a really helpful way to apply changes in one tab to all of them, such as when you sign into one tab and want it to apply to the rest.

Yup, that's what we need, and I don't see why it can't be done. That was a big advantage that legacy Edge had over other browsers.

As a side note, how did you do the screen record?

@Dan_AI4GK I used a school computer and screencast-o-matic was in the software center. There are a some extensions and apps out there that do the same thing, like screencastify.

@cjc2112 That Refresh All was a pretty handy feature. I almost forgot it was there.

@cjc2112 Thanks!

You can use Powerpoint => Insert => screen record

 

or use OBS: https://obsproject.com/

You can refresh either all tabs, 1 tab or any number between them, in the new Edge.

all you have to do is to hold CTRL and then click on any of your tabs you wish to refresh to select them. once you've selected your tabs, you press F5 for refresh or right-click and select refresh.

you can do the same thing to apply other group actions to tabs.

such as adding multiple tabs to a group, to a favorite folder etc etc.

Yeah, btw it also works on Firefox and Chrome

Highlighted

@cjc2112 Thanks for letting me know. I still wish there was a drop down option on right click to make it faster.

Highlighted
Yw, Would it make it faster than pressing a button on keyboard?
Highlighted

@HotCakeX It certainly would on a tablet... or if you are feeling lazy and don't want to use the keyboard :smile:

Highlighted

@CLove3 or if you don't feel like highlighting all the tabs

Highlighted
Without highlighting, you can't do all of that I showed in video. a simple right-click option is not flexible enough ;)

I think I know what they should do for tablets, a tap and hold on tabs should highlight them, using a 2 finger gesture (one finger on the left tab and one finger on the right tab to highlight all the tabs in between them) will do the trick. once the tabs are highlighted, the right-click menu should automatically appear letting user choose an option.

@Elliot Kirkso I'd like tab preview to be persistent and NOT on hover because I need to be able to look quickly across the dozens of tabs I have open. the top tab far of Edge works well, but it would also be nice to have the Quick Tabs option from older IE versions where you could tile the tab previews to take up the full browser window instead of having to scroll. the important thing is persistent tab previews where we can see the contents of many tabs at once.

I like this idea, in Firefox you can do this by CTRL + TAB shortcuts.
Windows uses ALT + TAB shortcuts to show all the open windows and Firefox uses CTRL + TAB shortcuts to show all the open tabs.
it'd be great if Edge used the same shortcut which is very familiar to Windows too.
