Microsoft yesterday released test builds for Edge Chromium and includes a surprising number of features for such an early build. Microsoft says some features, such as Dark mode, will appear later – but you can try them now. That's how it's done.
Same as Chrome Pages, but It's Edge Pages
Microsoft's decision to revise the edge browser with Chromium promised a lot. Support for Chrome extensions, better touch support, and battery life for Chrome are just a few examples. Looking back, it seems obvious that Edge receives experimental flags.
Chrome's experimental flags are a subset of the page features that let you test upcoming unfinished features. With Microsoft Edge Chromium you see the same concept in the game. The only difference is to type
chrome: // to start use
edge: // .
The Experiments page contains three particularly interesting settings: dark mode, grouped tabs, and smooth scrolling.
Enabling Dark Mode
We assume that you already have Edge Chromium installed and have gone through the installation. To get started, open a new tab and tap
edge: // flags and then press Enter.
Next, you can either search for the desired flag (if you know the name) or scroll to it. To turn on dark mode, look for the "Microsoft Edge Theme" option and change the drop-down list from "Standard" to "Enabled".
You & # 39; You will be prompted to restart the browser. You can either do this now or wait until you set other flags.
If you do not see the dark theme, Windows Light Design is probably enabled. This margin setting takes into account your Windows color settings. Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. Then click Colors on the right side of the settings dialog, and change the drop-down list of colors to Dark.
Other Cool Flags: Grouping Tabs and Smooth Scrolling
If you want to try grouped tabs, return to the edge
back: // Flag and search for tab groups. Change this option from "Standard" to "Enabled".
If you now have tabs open, you can right-click them and add a new group or group. Unfortunately, you can not rename the groups so they are filled with generic names like Group 0, Group 1, and so on. However, if you add a tab to a tab, it will move immediately next to the other tabs in the same group. With groups, you can separate work and play (or tabs by topic) without having to open as many windows.
Finally, you can repeat this process to enable smooth scrolling Honestly … really did not do anything in our tests. At least not yet – Microsoft is working hard on this feature and we expect a smooth scrolling to start soon. It is still there if you want to try it.
Find the soft scrolling option and change the default setting to Enabled.
when updates come, this will get better. We can currently see the difference between scrolling in the standard edge browser, Chrome, and Edge Chromium (where Standard achieves the best result). We look forward to better scrolling in Chromium browsers.
There are a number of other flags that can be activated, most of them are more technical in nature (like zero-copy rasterizer), so play with them at your own risk.
