Note: This is no longer the most recent top feedback summary. You can always find the latest at https://aka.ms/MSEdgeTopFeedback.
Hello insiders, we’re listening!
Over these past months we have been busy reading all the great feedback you've been sending us through the "Send feedback" smiley, here on the insider forum, and to our @MSEdgeDev Twitter handle. As we go through the feedback, common themes, popular suggestions, and bugs with broad impact emerge. We've been highlighting this "top feedback" within the team, and we'd like to share it with you as well. Starting with this post, we will regularly summarize the most significant feedback we are hearing from you and give you an update on the status of each item. We'll also highlight some of the changes we've made that were inspired or prioritized because of your feedback. Check out the list below, and of course use this forum thread to share your thoughts and discuss.
Your feedback has directly led to many improvements. Here are just some of the most notable, now available in the Canary channel:
Here are some top feedback topics we plan to address in the coming months. (Of course, plans can change. We'll make sure to let you know if timing or direction shift on any of these.)
Planned to be addressed in the Canary channel in September 2019:
Planned to be addressed in the Canary channel in October 2019:
The team is reviewing the following feature requests and we'll be sure to let you know if they're getting ready to show up in one of our channels:
Finally, there are a few areas where you've told us our quality needs to improve. We are investigating these areas and will fix specific bugs when they are identified:
You can help in these areas by keeping the bug reports coming. Whether you have a major issue or a minor glitch, if you see something, click the "Send feedback" smiley and tell us briefly what happened. Every report helps!
Thank you all for being insiders. Your feedback motivates and inspires us, and we genuinely appreciate it. We look forward to sharing these updates on a regular basis to show how you're helping to set the direction of the next version of Microsoft Edge.

Uh, where is this magical "Send Feedback Smiley"?
I would have rather done that than create a "discussion thread", rather than having to deal with some people who can't help themselves abusing others simply for suggesting additional features.

hmmm... The full menu shows for me, and there's no smiley face.
Let me try some things. Nope, trying IE Core or disabling Ad Blocker doesn't do anything.
BTW, I'm using 360Chrome as my browser.
Let's try Canary.
Nope, still seeing the full menu... here's a pic.
As you can see, my menu looks NOTHING like yours???

Linux support is definitely a feature request we're tracking. We don't have a plan at this time, but we're reviewing it alongside other feature requests. Make sure to add your voice to the chorus by sending feedback if you haven't already.

It is helpful to have this overview of what is planned and what is still being reviewed and considered. While it is disappointing that two of the items on my wish list (tab set aside and the download options) are only in the "team is reviewing" stage, it is good to know that I should not look for them in the near future.
Thanks to you and the team for the transparency and the confirmation that the feedback process is working.

These are top features you should bring back to Edge.
These special features will make Super Useful and Different from the other Browsers .
Timeline support would be nice also .

So a bunch of great things coming. Though I'd like to mention that if "Set tabs aside" is brought back, allow us to hide that button.
And in regards to Reading List and the upcoming Favorites button, please bring back the entire hub (including downloads, history, etc.). Being able to pin that sidebar made for a great UX.

This is a great plan for the future of the Edge insider. I hope the Edge team accept those suggestions after reviewing them, specially this one:
- Bring back features from the current version of Microsoft Edge such as tab set aside, tab preview, "Ask Cortana", and the reading list

I don't understand why people are having problem with the rounded-corner tabs. The context menus with rounded corners are perfect and if I remember correctly, this design will be used throughout the whole OS in the future. Please do not change this. We need consistency. All we need is something like this:
By adding more Fluent, the browser will look very different (which means different from Chrome). The download manager is horrifically bad right now, we need a hub, just like in the old Edge (or the second link above).
And please, add the "do not close with the last tab" option.
One more thing, when you start working on the new tab page, please take a look at ho Opera solved the problem.
This is an old screenshot but whatever, I think it looks awesome: https://i.imgur.com/QfQ6wGH.png

Oh I'm a sucker for acrylic/transparent top bars! totally agree with all of it except for the downloads part,
right now the downloads page got everything needed, the file type categories make them easier to browse and download history is also categorized by date. it's decent.
