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, 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: dark mode for new tab page enabled

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 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.

Now back to you: what other changes would you like to see in Chromium Edge?
