Microsoft designers can't agree on an interface. Until recently, we presented you a new, hidden and strongly rounded Start menu interface. On the other hand, the curves are disappearing from the new Edge. The browser becomes angular again, and we begin to wonder which of these versions looks better.
The first departure from crude angularity coincides with the times of Windows Vista and the era of Aero Glass. Sharp edges have returned to Windows 8, and recent years have been Fluent Design, which is not clearly defined in terms of edges. It seems that it should be simply elegant and smooth, and how smooth – it depends on the designers. Let's see what they just came up with for the new Edge.
We start with the shape of the InPrivate button, because this is probably the most conspicuous example. Until now, it resembled a smooth and rounded capsule. Its new version is no longer so easy to swallow. It was introduced in the new Edge Canary build number 79.0.300.0.
The second, much more subtle change concerns the address bar drop down menu. It became slightly less rounded at the corners, although it cannot be said that they are angular. The difference is barely noticeable. If you also use Dev and Beta builds, you can still compare these interfaces.
Microsoft is known for experimenting with interfaces and recent changes in Edge do not have to prejudge its final form. The public version (without the "Insider" patch) will not be released until next year, but this will not mean the end of its evolution. In my opinion, strongly rounded UI elements could work only in the company of other roundings, as otherwise we are dealing with a little coherent system aesthetics … Which by the way is not new for Windows. And what do you think about these changes? Let us know in the comments!
