    Nice. I am using the Dev channel for now. I may run Canary along side it to check it out though.

    Do you think this Edge browser will be more private?

    If you use about:blank it doesn't work?

    There is no way to set it in the new Edge Chromium that I have seen.

    When it becomes 'offishul', I will probably use the new Edge on my one minimalistic Win 10 instance - just WD, Andy Ful's Hard_Configurator and FF (at the moment) with only uBlock medium mode and p/w manager add-ons.

    Not saying, most of those sensationalist articles writers are just noobs that have no clues about technical aspects.
    They believe because they know how to use a product than they suddenly become experts.

    I don't even want to get started on "experts". I knew someone that started a business once and was told "Wow, I didn't realize IT people were a dime a dozen". It's like thinking you're a doctor because you can find webmd.

    Well said. Not sure why this is even shocking to anyone. To non tech folks sure but just have some common sense.

    If you guys read the article, they say "URL hashing". It indicates that there is a way to do it without privacy invasion.
