Microsoft is rapidly adding features back to their new Chromium-based Edge browser, and their latest commitment is to solving one of the internet’s significant annoyances.
We’re working on adding a global and per-site setting similar to what we have in the current version of Edge ?

Kyle Pflug, one of the developers of the new Edge browser, said on Twitter that Microsoft is working to add a video autoplay blocker that will work on both a global and per-site basis. Microsoft already has this feature in the old Trident-based Edge browser and it is good to see Microsoft is working on feature parity between the old and new code.
Are there any other old Edge features our readers would like to carry over to the new Edge? Let us know below.
