Today's Canary update changed the omnibox:
The new version is really hard too see in light mode. Please reconsider this change.

I hate it too. It used to be lighter which looked a lot better. This change makes Edge feel much less polished (which it ain't lol but first impressions matter).
When this was released, I noticed another bug that I can also reproduce in Chrome Canary. Before I explain the bug, note that I've already reported this. I have animations in Windows turned off. In Chrome (stable) I cannot see the ripple or fade effects on buttons which is normal behaviour. Edge used to only have a fade effect when animations were turned on. Now most Edge buttons have a fade AND ripple effect even when animations are turned off! The few buttons that are not affected by this bug are the site info button, favourite button and the extension buttons.

I like it this way. Bending is better.
Same here, it's not bothering me, neither on dark theme nor on light.
when I click on the omnibox the outline appears which is good but other than that i don't need to have outline up there when my focus is on the main web page content in the website.

What? That's literally the opposite of what is going on here. If that was to be the case there should be no shadow around the omnibox at all.
The current shadow is in an uncanny valley of being visible but very difficult to focus on. It's clearly a bug.
And I don't think this ridiculous pursuit of "zero contrast browser chrome" is a good idea. Sometimes you need to clearly show the separation of parts of the UI, such as the click/touch target of the omnibox. Also, without it, people won't identify it as a web browser.
That's not the opposite, we're discussing the omnibox here.
there is little no no shadow at all.
Mate I see no bug here. if you do, post a picture and mark the area that you think is a bug so we and the developers who might visit this topic will see it.

matter of fact, I have checked both themes thoroughly, but you still haven't posted any screenshot to show what you're referring to.
that is Not a bug. that is intentional.
they made it just like the classic Edge. try it yourself, open up the built-in Microsoft Edge and see for yourself.
Nope, i'm not, you were referring to Chrome in your posts so I used it to show you.
