Chromium Microsoft Edge to Feature Fluent Design 

Microsoft is revamping Microsoft Edge browser to migrate from EdgeHTML to Chromium, but the company originally promised to keep the look and feel of the browser fully untouched.

Microsoft is revamping Microsoft Edge browser to migrate from EdgeHTML to Chromium, but the company originally promised to keep the look and feel of the browser fully untouched.

And because these are key features of the application, it looks like one of the priorities right now is to bring Fluent Design to the Chromium-based browser.

As discovered by HTNovo, the leaked version of the new browser comes with a dedicated flag which confirms that Fluent Design will be part of the updated Edge.

Called “Fluent Controls,” the flag aligns the browser to Microsoft’s new design language that’s already being used in Windows 10 and a series of other pre-installed core apps.

“If enabled, HTML forms elements will be rendered using an alternative style to align with Microsoft’s design language to improve touch and keyboard accessibility,” the flag reads.A work in progressYou can check out the flag yourselves by typing edge://flags in the address bar and then searching for its name. The flag is currently set to Default, so you need to click the drop-down menu and switch it to Enabled.

Most likely, the implementation of Fluent Design in the new browser is still in its early phases, and it could take a while until everything works as expected. However, it’s also worth knowing that this leaked version of Microsoft Edge is still an experimental release that wasn’t shipped by Microsoft, so there’s a high chance that by the time it gets the go-ahead, Fluent Design in the browser also improves significantly.

Microsoft promised a preview build of Microsoft Edge in early 2019, but no specifics were provided. However, the leaked build suggests its release is just around the corner, and an official announcement on this is expected any minute now.

Additionally, the stable version of Microsoft Edge running on Chrome should make the rounds sometime later this year.
