Dark Mode for New Tab page is now enabled in latest Canary Edge
After a lot of security improvements such as Tracking Prevention and Passwords sync, Microsoft’s Chromium-based browser gets some visual features, as well.
Microsoft shows off Dark Mode features upon user feedback
More specifically, Dark Mode for New Tab page (NTP) is finally enabled in Edge Canary.
The Dark Mode for NTP was announced almost a month ago, when Microsoft confirmed it after a lot of user feedback. It was, and it still is, one of the most requested features.
Now, in Edge Canary version 18.104.22.168, the feature seems to be enabled, as one Chromium Edge user confirms:
Dark mode is now available on the NTP in Edge Canary.
And here’s the OP’s screenshot:
Not everyone gets the new Dark Mode for NTP
While Dark Mode for NTP is enabled for this particular user, others don’t have the option in their Chromium browser:
Even having the same version, i don’t have it. Any flags i have to enable??
This leads to the conclusion that Microsoft still releases the new features gradually, as a result of their Controlled Feature Rollout (CFR) program.
So, if you’re on Edge Canary version 22.214.171.124 or later, and you don’t see the Dark Mode for NTP option, that’s because of Microsoft’s A/B testing, and you’ll get it in the next few days.
