Edge side scroll bar

I wonder how many users actually find the thin scrollbar at the side easier to use than the normal wider, fixed width type? Personally, I find it fiddly and irritating. Yes, I could use the older browser or a different brand, but this feature is hardly a accessibility advantage, is it. Personally, if I was designing the feature, I would retain the tried and trusted wider type and make it semi-transparent. The user would always be able to see the scrollbar, access it quickly and easily and still see anything under it. Perhaps MS should offer the option of 'keep it thick' by default and see how many users change it to 'thin but expanding' as it is now.
