    To me, Edge sucks. PERIOD.
    And I am not asking anyone to agree with me.
    But the majority do anyway, it's not a very good browser, I have my doubts it'll ever mature in to one.

    So many Apps/Browser Apps are terrible for integrative desktop purposes, such as Edge, UC Browser and others; they're great for phones and the like, (actually Edge isn't very good on phones either!), but terrible on a desktop.
    They need to behave like a client on the desktop, but then, if they behave like a client, they're not an app anymore!

    Hi there
    you've obviously then Never had to do what 100,000's of people have to do -- download data from the web into EXCEL spreadsheets -- Edge doesn't have a connection with EXCEL.
    Hi Jimbo,
    Well that is true, I don't use Edge for anything like that. My main use is in moderation duties on another large site where I find the super quick and unflappable operation of Edge a real bonus. It has never crashed out, never frozen, never 'not responded', its never blinked even when working hard switching between multiple windows and tasks together with opening pdf's. To have pdf's open in the blink of an eye, whether stored locally or online is terrific.

    The two things I wish it had,

    1/ an ability to export what would traditionally be 'cookies' in IE. In other words a file (or files if it handles things separately) of site login preferences and passwords.

    2/ I miss (really miss) having a quick right click and swipe and being able to select 'translate'. Edge needs accelerators.

    Would I go back to IE or some other 3rd party offering. Well as things stand at this moment, no chance :)

    ok, i have to ask:

    when opening EDGE i have Yahoo.com as default page. Now when hitting home (you know the little house) i get pic 1.

    When hitting Yahoo what you see above i get Yahoo.com

    When hitting home then i Always get start....start....start and it should be Yahoo.com (pic3)

    How can i change this please

    go into Settings, then Advanced Settings

    Top of that where you activate the Home button should be a box telling it what to do, defaults to about:start, change this to Yahoo and it should do what you want

    home is not the same as start page, you have to set them both up separately, done just to confuse I think

    Just unresizable, random warning messages, indistinguishable from malware popups, that I can't read all of the text on and with button cut-off. :)
