Microsoft today announced that they are gradually rolling out the new icons what are powered by the latest Fluent Design language version.
Microsoft says that there will be two phases of updating the iconography in Edge. This first phase will cover icons for controls like tabs, the address bar, and navigational icons. The second one will include Developer Tools and the Extensions experience.
