    “The mode will introduce a gaming-focused homepage”

    Homepage hijacking is no longer malware behavior when Microsoft does it. It’s good news material !

    “It will also bring new sidebar apps tailored to provide a seamless gaming experience.”

    If Microsoft can put ads in the File Explorer, it can put ads in a hijacked homepage and “tailored” apps sidebar.

    Right now, Edge has much too much bloatware. Microsoft could have included all of this via an extension as opposed to building it within and slowing down the process. I’m returning to Firefox due to the impending new appearance, terrible design, and bloated features.
