Microsoft is continuously working on adding features from classic Edge browser to upcoming Chromium Edge browser, which is currently under development. In the latest Edge Chromium build in Canary channel, the company added “Favorite Toolbar button”, another feature from Classic Edge app.
Many users were demanding Favorite Toolbar button for a long time, and Microsoft was already working to bring it to Chromium Edge. Starting with Edge Chromium v18.104.22.168 in Canary Channel, a new option appears in the Settings that display the Favorite icon in the toolbar. With the help of this toolbar button, you can get access to Favorite quickly.
Currently, the feature is under A/B testing and the chances are that even if you’re running the latest build of the Edge Chromium browser, you might not find the same option.
