    UPDATE 4/8: Microsoft Edge Insider preview builds are now ready for you to try - Windows 10 Forums

    Microsoft is rebuilding its Edge browser on Chromium. The software maker has been testing versions of this browser internally at Microsoft, and now The Verge has secured an exclusive first look at the early work thanks to a source who wishes to remain anonymous. While the previously leaked screenshots made Edge look very similar to Chrome, Microsoft is adding its own touches and animations to make it look and feel like a Windows browser.

    When you first install the Chromium version of Edge, Microsoft will prompt you to import favorites, passwords, and browsing history from Chrome or Edge (depending on your default). The setup screen also prompts you to pick a style for the default tab page before you start browsing.

    Most of the user interface of the browser is a mix of Chrome and Edge, and Microsoft has clearly tried to add its own little touches here and there. There’s a read aloud accessibility option, and it simply reads the page out loud like it does in existing versions of Edge. Some features that you’d expect from Edge are missing, though. Microsoft hasn’t implemented a dark mode just yet, the set aside tabs feature isn’t available, and write on the web with a stylus is missing....

    We all make mistakes, it's time to forgive that guy (the one who built the PC) and forget that incident with Bitwit, by the way, I have never liked Bitwit, his style of making videos seems to me unserious and sometimes stupid, but it's just my opinion.

    True(I don't care for Bitwit either) but The verge had previously posted, multiple times about the misuse of using the Report button on YouTube to shut down channels, then their lawyer(with or without consent, doesn't matter) went and did just that.

    But about your post, I can't wait to met my mits on the beta, as soon as I can.
    I like Edges UI, but I have had to many crashes & freezes with it, and it really sucks at YouTube, specially 4k.
    But I like Chromes stability, as I have not had a single crash or freeze in about 4 or 5 years.

    Microsoft Edge Insider Addons

    Night Eye

    RAZORdeveloper

    Night Eye enables dark mode on pretty much all websites - Facebook, Google, Quora, Github, Stackoverflow, Wikipedia and much more.

    Instead of simply inverting, the extension analyses the pages’ colors and images and converts them to improve your browsing experience.

    Recent changes: We removed the color picking feature as it was in early experimental phase and needs to be improved. It will be available soon - more powerful and easier to use than ever.

    The extension offers in-app purchases that are available after 3 months.

    It allows you to quickly switch the three available modes:

    - Dark - Go into complete dark mode. All colors, small images and icons will be converted to give you the smoothest dark experience possible.
    - Filtered - The websites' colors will not be changed, but you can still adjust brightness, contrast, warmth and more.
    - Normal - Get back to the normal browsing experience.


    Any modifications you make such as contrast level adjustment, colors and etc. can be applied to a single website or globally.

    New features:
    - Scheduled on/off

    Built-in support system - we take pride into being available to provide reliable support and help you with any problems or issues you might experience with the extension.


    Night Eye is currently working on Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Vivaldi, and Yandex web browsers. Currently Safari version is being developed. Stay updated - Night Eye - Dark mode extension


    Privacy concerns

    Instead of simply pointing you to our privacy policy. We would like to address this topic in the most understandable language here.

    We do NOT collect anonymous usage data using an industry standard third party analytics (Google Analytics) while using the extension.

    We only store the saved settings for each visited website of each Night Eye user in their localStorage (your computer). This relates to all adjustments made by the user to improve their browsing experience through the use of Night Eye. There are 7 types of adjustments: Colors, Images, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Cold/Warm and Dim.


    In other words - we only store any visual adjustments you made while browsing the internet. We do not store them on our servers, but rather in your localStorage (your computer).
