Microsoft recently rolled out an update to Edge Insiders in the Dev channel. The update brings the browser to build 89.0;767.0 and includes several new features. The biggest change in the build is the completed rollout of vertical tabs, which allows people to move their tabs from the top of the browser to the side.
The update also brings new options for auto filling information, adds the Share menu to websites installed as apps, and includes other changes. Here's the complete changelog as shared by Microsoft (opens in new tab):
- Added the ability to save and autofill birthdays.
- Added the ability for autofill to read data such as addresses that have been copied to the clipboard and suggest them as potential autofill candidates when filling in the associated fields in a webpage.
- Added Share to the … menu in websites installed as apps.
- Finished rolling out Vertical Tabs.
- Added a management policy to control whether or not to Show Recommendations. Note that updates to documentation or administrative templates may not have occurred yet.
- Added a management policy to control Cloud Policy retrieval. Note that updates to documentation or administrative templates may not be available yet.
In addition to these added features, the update also includes several reliability improvements and fixes.

I'm using vertical tabs for weeks on beta channel - only had to enable their flag. So Dev channel had the same option, it's just the flag is now enabled by default.
As mentioned by Microsoft in the release notes, this completes the rollout of vertical tabs. It was available for some people before.
