Microsoft recently added a new option to use Rounded corners for Tabs in Edge on Windows 11 accompanied by an option to add rounded corners to Edge browser Windows UI.
The company first added this feature in Edge canary build 102.0.1241.0, and at that time users were required to use this flag:
edge://flags/#edge-visual-rejuv-show-settings to enable or disable it.
Rounded corners are the most immediately noticeable feature of Windows 11. Keeping this in mind, the developers working behind Edge are doing their best to make the browser UI match with Windows 11 UI. The implementation of Rounded corners for Edge is a clear sign of that.
However, some users liked the Rounded corners for browser tabs, while there’s a group of users who didn’t like the new implementation and would like to disable it.
