Anyone using Microsoft Edge?

I have to admit that I wrote off Microsoft in the web browser department because in the end IE was such a disappointment, although just a little over a decade ago it had over 90% market use. So when I heard of the end of IE I thought "about time!"

Then I heard about Edge coming out. I was kind of thinking "let sleeping dogs lie" but I have been reviewing some videos showing the functions and reading up on it. I actually think it sounds and looks good.

Has anyone actually used it and can shed some more light on it? I kind of feel like it would be hard to touch Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, but it does look interesting to me.

The other thing is that it's only Windows 10 compatible, and I've been hearing only rants and disappointments about Windows 10. I've been waiting to switch, hoping bugs get sorted out first. Thoughts on that?

Chrome has about half the market. Firefox is almost irrelevant.

Re: Anyone using Microsoft Edge?

I abandoned Edge for Chrome as I found it so bad.

It has a fantastic function in it that stores what page you are on and if it crashes it takes you back to that page the next time you load it.

Unfortunately if you err onto a page that locks you on to it, you need to crash the program to get out of it, brilliantly the next time you load Edge it takes you straight back to that page and you get locked in again.

Not even a reboot can cure this, you have to physically delete the history using File Explorer.

I do love Windows 10 though

I like Edge now since you can add extensions. I only use the Ublock origin extension. Plus saving to Onenote is nice.

Re: Anyone using Microsoft Edge?

Windows 10 is okay, 7 might still be better. The most recent version of Explorer isn't terrible, but I'm still a Chrome fanboy. Firefox was only ever good because it was better than the old Explorer and Chrome wasn't out yet. I have no intentions of considering Edge.

Re: Anyone using Microsoft Edge?

Thanks for the feedback. I also wouldn't switch, I was more curious to try it out to see what some of these new features are all about. But I don't see myself ever giving up Chrome for it.

Used it for some days but I think its not so user friendly. Its my opinion. You may have different thoughts. Chrome is better.

Re: Anyone using Microsoft Edge?

I really like Microsoft Edge. It's working perfect as compare to other browsers. There are so many features that are available on Edge like marking on any website and block extensions and many more.
