    Predictive url is super slow on Edge beta (stable too!)

    Anyone else have this issue.

    Say i type an address in url box, well, Edge doesn't seem to acknowledge the site until i get to the last letter and sometimes even have to type .com to get there before it shows up in the predicted address. Kind of defeats the purpose of having autocomplete enabled.

    I always get a pop-down list showing suggestions that most times only have to clicked on. If using .com addressing I use Ctrl+Enter to automatically add that extension and go [works in all the browsers I've tried/use], doesn't seem to work with any other extension such as .org, .edu, .gov, etc.

    Here is another example.
    Say i have | Actualites et Infos au Quebec et dans le monde in my bookmarks and have visited it a few times (without deleting history).
    Suggestions for lapresse site only start showing after typing in the . before the ca.
    And then, i must click down to suggested, finally recognized web site.

    If i open Opera, type in just the letter l in the url box, it already has | Actualites et Infos au Quebec et dans le monde in the box! Or, if i type in o, it automatically puts in OMG! Ubuntu! - Ubuntu Linux News, Apps and Reviews so i just have to hit enter and voilą!

    Vivaldi is different.
    Although it suggests sites as you type in url box, you can also view history and bookmarks in a dropdown.

    Think Opera beats Vivaldi and Edge for suggesting most visited, bookmarked sites first.

    So, from what i can see, not all chrome based browsers behave in the same manner.

    Maybe there's a hidden tweak to improve Edge autocomplete / autosuggestion?
