MS trying to be smart? When DNS blocks a webpage (malware/filtering), Edge tries to connect using GoogleDNS.
While it is an interesting feature, it beats the point of DNS filtering and most people just do not block outbound.

Did you use/ enforce encrypted DNS in Edge?
Isn’t there also an option to have it look for a relevant page if the one you entered returns nothing? Maybe they use a fallback DNS for that. Forgive me I forget the setting name and don’t have a windows machine near me at the moment.

Anyone else has this new folder(EdgeCore) after updating to version 91?

The content inside EdgeCore folder seems to be very similar to the content inside the folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\91.0.864.37
But the folders size is not the same.

I move the EdgeCore folder to a different location to see if would cause Edge to crash but that didnt happen so I wonder what is the purpose of that folder.

Yes, you are right, it is related to the "Suggest similar sites when a webpage can not be found." But they say that the request will be sent to MS, not to Google, some might not like it.

Not in Edge, but in Windows, still this did not happen in 90. I literally spend the whole day configuring WFC and this started happening as soon as I updated to 91.
Apps making DNS requests is normal, if DNS Cache is disabled, but it is not, that makes it even more interesting, Edge can basically bypass Windows DNS now.

Sometimes there's this white flash when going back to the homepage. No matter which theme I choose it's there. I don't remember having this issue before updating to 91. Maybe a bug related to the newly implemented theming feature. I checked Chrome which doesn't have this problem.
Edit: Sometimes even when loading a page.

Try enable secure DNS and set it to use current one which is your system or router.
