How to Make Microsoft Edge Match the Design of Windows 11

If you are using the stable version of Microsoft Edge (at least version 102), we have good news for you. As spotted by Neowin Microsoft is now extensively testing a hidden web browser redesign on Windows 11. The new design sports more rounded, floating tabs (similar to Firefox) and also sports elements of Microsoft’s Fluent Design and Mica design languages.

This comes after testing began in the Canary build a few weeks ago. But what matters is that this design now matches the look of Windows 11. So if you want to try this redesign today, you can do so in just a few steps. Here’s how.
