Transparent theme for the browser frame just like classic edge to fit the windows 10 environment.

I like the Transparent theme for Microsoft Launcher on Android, It looks pretty smart. Bringing the "new" Chromium-based Edge back in-line with the visual effects of Fluent Design Language, such as Acrylic, seems pretty important for a 1.0 stable release, IMHO. Other opinions?

people mentioned that is wouldn't be possible because the new Edge is Win32 program whereas the classic Edge is UWP and had access to different resources.

i hope to get an official comment on this matter from Microsoft.
There are many 3rd party softwares in market which have acrylic blur in their apps , If they can do it, I believe Microsoft can do it as well (actually much better)

Thank you all for the input! To give you some insight: this is a known request and is part of ongoing consideration between our devs and designers. However, we'll definitely let you know if/when there are any public updates.
