    I'll bet one of those background processes, is one of the new ones I find great.
    The notifications turned on in Edge settings. I can have Windows Ten Forums open and reduce Edge to the taskbar(not closed) and do something else on my PC, and I'll get a toast pop-up when someone post on one of my subscribed threads.Click image for larger version.

    I only use Edge for testing when I'm running my Insider Build. Pale Moon is still my main browser.

    LOL. Right now it's occupying almost 500MB with only 2 tabs (Yahoo Mail and this site).

    The Edge Back button is inadequate for me.

    Some websites go forward 2 pages after one click. (Click link on page 1 and it loads page 2 which immediately loads page 3.).
    If I'm on page 3, a simple Back button doesn't work because going back to page 2 immediately bounces me to page 3 again.

    I need the ability to go back several pages at once- like in FF, IE, and I presume Chrome by holding down the Back button and seeing the sequence history.

    Unless Edge offers this (and I admit I've not looked hard at the AU version yet), it can't be my main browser.

    ...and it helpfully pops up the word 'Back', in case I didn't realise what the button was for. As I said I'm not using AU yet (except in a VM somewhere) - is that something that's changed in that version?
