Microsoft is bringing a new customization option to Edge, allowing users to personalize the look of their browser. Microsoft Edge Canary is rolling out custom color themes as a server-side change (version 91.0.826.0), and the update appears to be a part of A/B testing by the company (via Edge Insider forums).

Microsoft started testing the color theme picker option in Edge Canary and Dev channel with an experimental flag last year in December. The personalization feature lets users apply custom accent colors to the title bar, toolbar, and the browser’s new tab page. It supports both dark and light themes.

Interestingly, there are a handful of pre-set accent color options for the users to choose from, and the list includes Morning Fog, Cool Breeze, Mango Paradise, Mystical Forest, and more. To try out this new feature, Edge Insiders will need to head to Settings, click the Appearance section, and then select any Theme option from the list.

For those who are interested, there is an option to download and use third-party themes from the Edge Add-ons store and Google’s Web Store as well, and it’s available below the color palette.

It is worth noting that Microsoft is testing this update with select Edge Insiders, and it’s gradually rolling out to more users on the Canary channel. However, it will be a while till it shows up in the Dev builds and eventually in the Stable channel.
