    Another nail in the coffin for Edge

    Hi there

    This is a 100% No No in using Edge for me. Also Ms seems to forget nor everybody wants to be "connected" 24 hrs a day 7 days a week. I don't want to use an Ms account either.

    In fact even some BIG businesses are suggesting to people --switch off email etc for a few hours and Go and get a Life !!!!!

    Not sure why an optional syncing feature is a nail in the coffin for edge

    this feature is what started me taking edge seriously, info syncs between my devices and is backed up for if I do a re install

    don't understand the comment about people not wanting to be connected 24/7, browsing the internet, which is one of the main things of a browser requires an internet connection

    I just added another nail in the coffin to my Edge browser's usability for printing. Had to switch over to Firefox to print a webpage in grayscale. Edge offers no capability for directly accessing printer settings. I'm now up to using Firefox 80% of the time for printing web content.

    Microsoft has more experience than Mozilla, but they picked an Edge development team to develop this browser right after earning their 6th grade diploma.

    Spot on mate. I use a lot of VMs and I like this feature. It remembers my log on details for this site for example.
