Uses Edge daily in my normal browsing, yes will be better when gets Extensions, but it is nice and fast and loads all the sites I need quickly
excerpt from the article posted by Brink :
Regardless of which numbers you use, it's clear that more than three out of four Windows 10 users are choosing an alternative browser, despite Microsoft's best efforts to make Edge the default in Windows 10.
Those numbers may creep up slightly later this year, as the browser continues to mature and especially when support for extensions arrives in this summer's Anniversary Update. But for now, Edge is still in use by only a minority of Windows 10 users.
That's the bottom line.
That aside, each to his own.
Windows 10 still has quirks, like the screen freezing, forcing an alt-cntrl-del to restart, but I haven't a Blue Screen error since February, thank goodness. By the way, how do you restart/shut-down a Windows-10 computer using it's new "Task Manager"? There were Shut Down and Restart options in Windows-7 Task Manager's menu at the top of its window. Right?
Edge? It's stable, as long as you're not visiting a page that's heavy with cookies and ads...like CNN or LA Times. It's very hard to close the tabs to websites like those. But I haven't seen any feature additions, or improvements. I still use Firefox if I'm doing work that involves going several layers deep into a website and I need to back up 4 pages or so. Clicking the back button 4 times, like you HAVE to do with Edge is too 1990'ish. Yep... Edge is a great basic browser but is still no better than IE6 was, many years ago.
As for shutting down windows, you can always click File->Run Task menu item and enter "shutdown -r" to reboot.
As you have put he is repeating old information.
For many of us, the extensions are a deal breaker. I'm not just talking [Removed rule 13 ] here either. With so much running on the web these days, a lot of developers have placed useful extensions into browsers, even for their desktop programs. So unfortunately for Edge, development will need to be completed and matured for the browser to catch up even to IE before it's a usable browser compared to its competitors.
