    Edge no good over IE 11


    hey guys,

    some months ago i did get the question from MS "why am i not using Edge".

    Well because i like IE11, but a few days later i switched to Edge.

    For a while it went ok, but now EVERYDAY EDGE is freezing, so anyone having that problem or a cure would be even better.

    Sometimes, not so often IE11 freezes as well.

    Is MS checking my computer?

    Anyway iwant to get rid of the freezing.

    Any suggestions?

    thanks

    Waiting for better times

    hey guys,

    problem solved.

    found WSE-Vosteran and WSE- Taplika in Program and Features. Was unable to remove it the usual way, because my browser had to be closed....

    But it was closed....so probably it where add-ins in IE and Edge..

    So AdwCleaner did the trick. NOT....

    Edge still freezes.......

    Hi there

    Edge doesn't even remotely look like being able to be used with EXCEL when you want to import data from the web.

    Ms hasn't even THOUGHT about this yet -- so it would seem to me IE isn't going away any time soon.

    Cheers

    I'm not sure what's happening here? Are you trying to fix something, or just rant about Edge?

    Edge is probably the single biggest reason I like W10 over W8.1

    Each to their own I know, but Edge is generally super quick. The way it handles favourites is a big improvement over IE imo. IE both looks and feels dated in comparison. That's not to say its perfect, its not, and there are some small things I would like to see changed or added but overall its a winning formula for me.

    I haven't even opened IE since installing Ten.

    Well Michael,

    i am not attacking Edge or Windows 10. At the beginning of the change starting with Win 8 i was one of the few defending Win 8, 8.1 and Win 10.

    Win10 is that good that he who does not like it should buy an Apple.

    All i want is that Edge works as hould, nothing more.

    And i think Jimbo is right, so if we do not complain, then nothing happens.

    Besides i gave MS feedback on this.

    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.

    There's a wee problem with IE11 / EXCEL / W10 getting external data but it does work if you just type YES to the initial popup when you see script error.

    Can't see Active-X or JavaScript being available for Edge any time soon.

    Each to their own.

    To me, Edge sucks. PERIOD.
    And I am not asking anyone to agree with me.
