Are you a fan of Microsoft Edge dark mode? If so, we’ve got some good news for you.
Microsoft is reportedly working to bring an even darker UI for the native browser. As spotted by Windows enthusiast @Leopeva64, the Redmond-based tech giant is currently testing a striking new feature in Edge Canary, the experimental channel of the browser. The company is experimenting with a full black background for various elements, including the tab strip, toolbar, favorites bar, vertical tabs, and sidebar.

As you can see, if you have the Mica effect enabled for Edge, it won’t affect the all-black UI that much as it will not blend with the background color. So, if you desire a visually pleasing experience that is gentle on your eyes, this combination is the ideal choice.
Speaking of the dark mode, you have the option to enable the dark reader in Edge as well. While this feature is currently categorized as an experimental flag within the browser, we’ve also prepared a simple step-by-step guide on how to activate it.
