The update is almost entirely focused on dark mode changes. There’s finally a setting in the settings of the browser where users can switch between the light and dark themes without having to jump into the browser’s flags. It also comes with dark theme support for the first-run sign-in popup, and sign-in error popup, as well as the feedback screenshot editor window. Here are some other new features:
The update also fixes issues with some particular sites like Netflix, and some issues with PDF viewing, so make sure to check out the full changelog here. With all these fixes and improvements, it’s clear Microsoft is moving at a very fast pace with Edge than ever before, so don’t be surprised if the stable version of the browser is launched in the coming weeks.
