Good catch. I was already testing that and after disabling hard acceleration, I'm seeing less black windows and when it appears it's for a split second so not as noticeable as my gif above. Dropped frames are still a thing on YouTube but it's not much noticeable anyway. But pretty sure both issues are connected. It's having some issues with rendering. I haven't used any Chromium browsers regularly for the last 3 years so not sure yet if it's a chromium related issue or Edge exclusive only but I think it's the latter one.
Actually, I got that idea from Brave only showing black screen. There's another suggestion you might try if you check the link.There have been other reports, mostly re: videos, on Brave but not as many overall as on Edge.

I'm a regular in the Brave Community in the hope that they'll improve core features, which have some issues. Maybe I shouldn't hold my breath?🤔

Thanks. Looks like this one is different as he changed his gpu and that's a whole black screen and nothing.
Btw, after 3 years I even installed Chrome today to check if my problem happens on Chrome too. Turns out it does there too but to a less extent. So, chromium has issues with my CPU/GPU. Also tried Vivaldi and Brave and did some personal speed tests too. Vivaldi is the slowest of all on my PC and it was very easy to notice from page loading to even opening a new browser window. Brave and Chrome performed similarly and Edge is slightly faster than Chrome. It always finishes loading page faster than others. Btw, this should vary system to system depending on the PC configuration, extensions, flags modification and of course internet connection. I was extremely picky in my own testing and talking about very little margin here that no one would notice in real time including me. Anyway, very happy with Edge's performance. Kudos to the team.
About your question about Brave, I don't know since I don't follow their development but it's easy to guess that their team is surely not as big as Edge and Chrome and even Firefox, so fixing bugs, adding features may take them longer compared to others. But their user base is growing. I think I read a news last night and their CEO Brandon Aich said that now they have 13 million active users.

Microsoft is testing automatic Edge roll-out with Windows 10 Insiders:
Microsoft’s Chromium-based Edge browser now seems to reliable enough to be shipped with Windows 10 as the company has started to roll out the browser to Windows 10 users via KB4559309 update, thus replacing the classic Edge browser.

The Windows 10 KB4559309 update is only available to Insiders Release Preview Ring running Windows 10 May 2020 update(Version 2004), meaning the browser is being automatically made available to a handful of users. Of course, if you’re an Insider on the RP Ring and also have Microsoft’s new browser installed on your PC, you won’t notice the change.

Hello Insiders! Today we’re releasing build 84.0.516.1 to the Dev channel. In community news, we’ve got another AMA coming up! It’s happening Thursday over on Reddit, see for all the details. We’ve also got a discussion going around all the different ways you get back to websites you’ve been to before right here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/discussion-getting-back-to-websites-important-to-.... Finally, we’ve got a preview of everything we’re going to talk about at Build 2020! Whether you’re a web developer, an IT manager, or a student, we’ve got something for you: Everything new from Microsoft Edge at Build 2020 - Microsoft Edge Blog. In product news:

  • Added support for quieter notifications in edge://settings/content/notifications.
  • Improved the UI when picking a certificate to use for website authentication.

Top Feedback Summary for May 19:
Greetings, Insiders! Welcome to Build week! There’s a lot happening on the team this week, including our third Reddit AMA. We hope you can join us in r/MicrosoftEdge on Thursday to chat with the team.

We have a couple of updates this week, including marking an item as Addressed. We’ve been working hard internally to improve this, but we believe to have a fix in place for Edge cannot find devices to cast media. Here’s how you can test out the fix:
  1. Update or install Edge version 84.0.512.0 or greater.
  2. Go to any site, right click, and select Cast media to device.
    1. Note: some sites override the default right-click menu. On such sites, press Alt+F > More tools > Cast media to device.
  3. The Cast tab dialog will appear prompting you to restart the browser. Select Restart.
  4. After the browser restarts, casting will be turned on after a few seconds.
Let us know how this works for you! Does this work well, is there something that can be done better? We want to know!

We’re also really excited to provide an update to Highlighter tool for PDF files. We’ve now got it scheduled to be in Canary come July, so we’ve moved it from Planned to Planned for July! Once we have more details around this item, you’ll see them here.

That’s it for this week! Keep an eye out on Twitter under the hashtag #MSBuild for all the news we’re sharing over the next couple of days. And remember to keep that feedback coming!

Microsoft Edge Immersive Reader Gets Translate Feature:
Immersive Reader in Microsoft Edge 84 Dev and Canary builds has got the ability to translate pages into different languages.

Immersive Reader feature in new Microsoft Edge, also available in Legacy Edge, Microsoft OneNote, and Microsoft Word improve the reading experience online.

The feature in the Edge browser can be accessed by clicking on the icon in the address bar or by using the shortcut F9. Edge also allows us to open selected text in Immersive Reader via the new option – “Open in Immersive Reader” -present in the Page context menu.

Microsoft recently added Picture Dictionary to IR behind a flag in pre-release channels. The flag when enabled appears under Reading Preferences, toggle it, and select or double click a word to see a picture.

Picture Dictionary lets you view the visual definition of words and helps users who learn new languages.

Microsoft Edge offers a Translate option for Immersive Reader in the Reading Preferences. This allows people to read pages in their native language.

Top Feedback Summary for May 28:
Hello, Insiders! We have a pretty quiet, short week for us. Those of us in Redmond enjoyed a three-day weekend thanks to Memorial Day!

Last week, we pushed 83 into our Stable channel! This brought changes like profile switching and the ability to have the Share button on the toolbar, both items that were based on user feedback and appeared in this list. Additionally, it brought the Surf game to Stable!

If you missed it, our Director of Product Marketing talked about how we’re making the web more accessible. In the post, Divya talks about things coming soon to our Insider channels, like Picture Dictionary.

And while this isn’t an update to one of the items on this list at this time, Maryam posted a thread about the new sidebar search option. You should expect to see this roll out to Dev and Canary very soon!

Top Feedback Summary for June 10:
Greetings, Insiders! We have several updates to provide you, so let’s just jump into it!

First, we’re adding a new item this week! Add option to remove previous search terms from the New Tab Page’s search box auto-suggestion list is currently Under Review. We’ve heard from users like yourselves that you are looking for the search bar on the new tab page to have the option to clear previous search terms. The team is reviewing this, and we’ll provide updates as we get them.

We’re really excited to announce that one item is moving to Addressed, Support read aloud of PDF files. Fawkes posted an article from the team about how to try out the feature in our Dev and Canary channels. Have more feedback about this feature? Please drop a note in that thread or submit feedback via the in-app feedback tool. Thanks to everyone who submitted feedback in the past about this so the team can understand where you’re coming from when you use the read aloud feature!

Additionally, we’re ready to move Bring the Ask Cortana feature from the current version of Microsoft Edge from In Discussion to Planned. We encourage you to review the new sidebar search option that we recently implemented. Please give us your thoughts on this feature over in the thread Maryam posted a couple weeks ago.

Lastly, we are moving Mouse cursor sometimes disappears from In Discussion to Planned for June. We’ve recently implemented improvements that we feel cover a lot of the issues users have reported seeing, however we encourage you to submit feedback via the browser if you still notice issues with your mouse cursor disappearing. It’s important to note that your mouse cursor should disappear if you are watching a video or if you are using a trackpad. Head over to the discussion thread to let Clay and team know if you’re seeing this still.
