Microsoft has promised that it would retain the familiar look
and features of the classic Edge in Chromium Edge. The new
offers deeper integration with Windows 10 Settings and the
browser is now getting support for Windows 10 share dialog.
As part of a server-side rollout or the Controlled Feature
Rollout, Microsoft is enabling ‘Share this page’ feature in
Canary builds of Edge browser on Windows 10. Unlike classic
Edge where there’s a dedicated share button next to the address
bar, you have to click on three dots menu to access the feature
in new Edge.
The feature lets you share webpages directly with your contacts
or you can also post pages to your social media apps with one
click. You can use it to send the link to your Android handset
with Microsoft’s Your Phone app or you can also create a
reminder with Cortana.
Based on the reports we’ve seen, getting access to Windows 10
share dialog integration in Edge appears to be a server-side
change. Unfortunately, an experimental flag or command line for
share dialog is not known at the moment.
Microsoft has already confirmed that it won’t make all new
features available to all testers at once. The gradual rollout
approach is officially called ‘Controlled Feature Rollout’ and
it is used to limit features to a small set of users for some
Based on the feedback, Microsoft will decide to roll out the
same feature to more users. It all takes place randomly and
there’s no pattern.
It’s also worth noting that Windows 10 share dialog integration
is not available for Google Chrome.
Microsoft is also testing a new favorites button on the toolbar
and it could work just like the original Edge.
More recently, Microsoft updated Edge Canary for everyone with
improved version of Text Finder that respects the selected
text on a page when performing a search.
