A menu bar option would be helpful too.
You can see the need to cut the bloat to make something a bit more faster and secure but not pull a Windows 8 routine as far as stripping everything out! I did find an easy way to import bookmarks however. First you export the bookmarks in HTML format and import that into IE 11. From there Edge will import from IE only! So as long as IE is kept updated you can keep Edge updated but have fun trying to move them around or drag an address onto the bookmarks bar as you can with IE, FF, Waterfox, Cyberfox, etc.!
Addon? Didn't there were any at this time to put on. Just like 10 is seeing newer builds coming out like Threshold 2 you can expect Edge will have to seee more things added by the time the free upgrade offer is over. I suspect by the time 10 goes full retail you buy only Edge will have likely seen a few more features and options added while it still seems a bit beta to RC at this time. Edge like 10 was being introduced for us to provide feedback on as well as being the eventual full time replacement for IE. Not quite yet however.

Edge seems to be improving but it's definitely got a ways to go we'll what shakes out so Chrome is still the daily driver here .
copy/cpliboard bug still not fixed for Edge with TH2... system becomes frozen/laggy easily when the copy link bug gets triggered, and it's funny how you cant copy anything system wide anymore until you force close Edge.
Also funny how you cant even edit bookmarks and there is no option to edit/alter the link, for example putting a userassword@ into it.
IE certainly wouldn't import them with the default "json" four digit extension on any backup. And since Edge imports direct from IE only having no option to browse anywhere you first need to update IE and then import from there. I kept running into that for each VM and finally waited until the latest were backed up and transferred over between VMs and the second remote desktop. and if your browser can back them up in the html form you are all set to go.
With IE as well as every other browser with a bar you can click and drag a mark all the way over to bump the first! You can drop a new one by clicking and holding when dragging that over the extension and watch as that opens and scrolls down there. When dealing with a few years of accumilations it helps being able to keep things organized as well as edit which ones you want dumped.
It also has issues with scrolling on some pages - very laggy and weird.
Well, FWIW.. I use Edge on a daily basis for this forum and I have had zero issues with it. It's just a very basic, fast and stable browser.
Yup.. that covers it from my perspective..
Chrome is awesome on Windows 10 I don't know why anyone would want to say no to it.
