    Edge as priority after they got the adblock for it. however, when i burn my nerves with the missing right-click-mouse-and-no-back-button i go crazy and go back for chrome

    Cyberfox all the way and after trying Edge once I find it needs a few more versions to become a main browser

    I have Edge set as my default browser for Windows because it opens pretty quick. Also, MS sometimes wants you to use their browsers to view their web pages. When I choose to surf the web, Chrome is my 1st choice. If Chrome isn't working, like now (detailed here), I use Pale Moon.

    If more extensions become available for Edge, I will probably use it more.

    I have to admit i have used a few times but chrome is my number one buddy , i have it on my tablets my phone and it keeps track of everything for me, but i like the speed and simplicity of Edge i would switch if they would get my norton toolbar and a few other extensions.

    I hope that within a year there will be more extensions ported from the Chrome platform over to Edge. But as usual, time will tell.

    The only problem with extensions in Edge I have noticed, is, more than two, slows it waaaaay down
    So I decided on my 2 most important, and now I'm happy enough.
    I have never used only one browser.
    I have one for each browsing "task".

    I only use one extension on my browsers and it's the one we can't discuss. Generally speaking I keep all of my PC stock and I don't go around fiddling with it so I guess that's why I don't have any issues and my PC is rock stable as well.

    And I use two browsers but when I get one thing figured out for my sleep timer bat program I think I can drop FF and just use Edge. Now that would be nice I think. Not having to use a third party browser.

    I had to choose between the Translate add-on(which uses the most resourses) and the Office one(which I don't really need as I have Office365 and can quickly go to the bookmarked online Office too).
    I decided to keep the translate

    That makes sense. Oh and I think I found out what I need to use only Edge. I'll try it out today and I'll let ya know how my testing went.

    Fingers crossed!!
