Microsoft Edge

Recently, a dedicated flag in the upcoming browser‘s configuration page confirmed the new Microsoft Edge will come with Fluent Design elements.

Fluent Controls has been introduced with the aim to align the new Edge browser with Windows 10’s latest design language.

Furthermore, the updated Edge version will also be aligned with a host of other pre-installed core applications.

A modern interface and new features

Fluent Design is believed to be on Microsoft’s top priority list as this is a key element in Windows 10 UI. That is the reason Microsoft wants the look and feel of Chromium-based browser to be untouched.

We can expect Microsoft to release an enhanced version of Chrome featuring a modern interface that will bring additional features.

This time, the browser will be an efficient one, faster, and a lot cleaner than previous versions. It will support Customization, Dark theme, PDF Reader, Reading Mode, the picture in picture mode and Chrome Extensions. The stable version is expected to be available later this year.

How to check out the Fluent Design flag?

If you are interested in checking out the tab, you need to download and install the Chromium-based Edge version.

You can simply navigate towards the address bar and type edge://flags. Then you will have to look for the name Fluent Controls. You can use the drop-down menu to change the flag from Default to Enabled.

Microsoft is currently working on implementing these changes. Users will have to wait for some time so that the feature works as intended.

Right now, this feature is in its early experimental stages and Microsoft has not yet shared any clear details about it.

As of now, there is no official confirmation from Microsoft. However, there are good chances that Microsoft will ship Fluent Design-powered Edge very soon.

However, the company might not include all of these new features and changes in the developer preview builds. Some of them will be rolled out with the stable release version of the browser.
