“To honor our commitment to building a great browser, we test our feature changes for any regressions, gradually rolling out the feature to a small subset of randomly selected canary and dev channels, and then increasing that subset as we become more confident about it. the feature,” says Microsoft in edge forum.

“These controlled resource releases begin after the completion of quality, reliability and standard compliance testing that determines the resource is at ship quality.”

If the new feature is not available to you by default, Microsoft suggests visiting the edge://flags page and enabling the feature and restarting your browser to test it.
