Right Chrome ,my default browser of choice , runs like a scalded dog faster than anything else in Windows 10 and everything works .
I successfully updated / imported my bookmarks from Chrome to IE 11> then to Edge as was mentioned here (shouldn't be necessary to do all that ) and they still didn't all go through 100% ?
I Used Edge today for about an hour and a half . I like the clean GUI but it's slow and laggy by comparison to Chrome .
Edge became unresponsive with maybe 8 or 9 tabs open and got worse the longer I used it maybe it's got a memory leak or something .
F/F runs way better in W10 than Edge .....it ain't bad at all .
In Edge the copy/clipboard /paste doesn't work and there is no highlight /web search function . Despite the improvements Edge is pretty much still useless at this point IMO.
As long as they been trying to get IE xx right all these years (other than using Edge on Tard pads and phones) why they came up with this looser of a PC web browser is a mystery if not for that but not surprising OTOH maybe they will fix it ☻.
I'm generally allergic to all things Google, though I can take the SE in small amounts. I remember the first time I tried Chrome and I could not find a simple 1-click favorite list/add button but instead had to try so many add-ons that could not give me this basic functionality in the way I wanted. Youtube videos also had issues. My friends facebook games didn't work right. Hated the look of it and its simplistic settings. Uninstalled it wiithin a day and don't even keep it as a backup. I use Firefox and IE. Tried Pale Moon but in the end I just felt FF was way better, faster and more competent. Used to love IE back in the day but it became my backup to FF.
backup and had to see that dumped everywhere to import a brand new html and json type as well to see all the entire backup restored on Cyberfox, FF 42, Waterfox on the VMs as well as IE 11 and yet in every case Edge ended seeing the bookmarks and unassorted folders on the toolbar with a limited amount of those as well as about 1/3 of every other browser saw restored!
At this point Edge is still in need of a lot of work and perhaps suggestions made in feedback before it can ever become a full version browser far enough along to be an adequate replacement for IE at least let alone any other browser. Some got attached to it quickly simply since it came in 10 without need for anything other then the basics while for someone like me who still needs the functions and has to depend on a stable browser I still have to find Edge is sadly lacking.
As far as comparisons Chrome along with Edge and anything newer then Opera 9.63 and 9.64 is obsolete along with Flock for not providing any type of command/menu type bar and is geared more for the non Windows type OSs! As for Firefox Waterfox has been the 64bit cousin for a number of years now and I just found I had Waterfox 9.0 still stashed away with 18.9 and newer while that is at the 40..0 at the present time. Navigator was something I kept from trying that and Safari out a few years back when examining the 8 CP and looking for some additional browser options to replace IE 10 which didn't seem to fare any better then then IE 9. Multiple IE windews would freeze up constantly just having only 2 or 3 additional windows open which was unsuitable and lead to Opera and FF being given a look at first and later coming across the 64bit cousin.
One of the largest annoyances with these other browsers is always trying to tweak the open in new tabs only out to see new windows open instead of tabbed browsing. When going to close up one window I ended closing multiple tabs while trying to keep the rest open which is the hinderance.
I don't know if this has been posted yet, so if it has, just consider it a reminder:
I found a way to easily sort the shortcuts in the favorites bar.
When you do it from the bar, by dragging & dropping, it's a real fight getting them placed where you want, specially getting the ones in the drop down onto the taskbar.
I found if I open up the Hamburger Hub(favorites, reading lists, history & downloads) and
(1.) pinning it open(upper right corner),
(2.) then open the Favorites Bar folder,
(3.) and drag & drop them in there, they can be ordered smooth as silk.
If you find that they move around on their own after a while, try turning of the sync option, if it's on, or just keep adjusting until Windows "Learns" your preference after a few reboots/days(you will need a lot of patience)
I want to thank Jeff ( @BunnyJ ) and Donald ( @hTconeM9user ) for constantly saying how well Edge works for them. Otherwise I would have given up on it a while ago. Now it's working well and I only have one gripe left.
Something about software I learned a while ago, and if you are a true PC Geek(and not just an every day user) you'll understand this comment: If something works well for a few people but not for the rest, the rest have either software or hardware setup problems.
Just gave Waterfox a try after hearing a lot of good about it. Tried timing it on a few websites. 32 bit Fire Fox is clearly faster. Uninstalled.
