Although the feature is currently partially broken and only works when the tab is dragged to the right side, it is expected to improve productivity once the issue is resolved. Meanwhile, Edge Dev has received several minor improvements in its latest version (120), which are likely to be included in the stable release soon. These changes include enhanced API-level PDF translation, minor visual tweaks, and other reliability enhancements. The update also brings improvements to the iOS and Mac builds of Edge.
