When you try to open an link created for the old edge browser, with the new edge browser, you will get only an error message that the page cannot be found.

Try it with old and new edge browser.

Old edge link

@TheShaunSaw Yes, clear, that's the technical reason.
Buy WHY the new edge is not able to open old link and translate the old Reading link into the new one. This should be possible and would be very helpful for transition to the new Edge.
