Steps to reproduce

Middle mouse button click scrolling in Edge is unusable compared to Google Chrome. While in Chrome, scrolling speed with increase linearly with the amount of distance the cursor pointer is from the scrolling gizmo icon.

In Edge, scrolling is quite slow as long as the mouse cursor is in the close proximity to the scrolling gizmo icon, and after a certain constant distance, which si roughly 250 pixels from the scrolling gizmo icon, scrolling will switch to uncontrollably fast speed, which scrolls about 20 vertical screens of the webpage in just one second.

This will inevitably ruin first time impression of any user used to middle mouse scrolling who gives Edge a try.
