    Microsoft Edge any good?


    HI folks just a quick question, at the moment my internet browser is Microsoft Edge and I feel is becoming slow,
    I am wondering if I need to replace it with google chrome. What you guys think?
    Thanks for the reply

    Stick with Chrome, Edge is far to immature yet.

    don't get me started on edge...as the admin said its too immature. it does have a lot of hiccups. I alternate by using multiple browsers on my pc. maxthon, chrome, firefox, opera, palemoon, citrio, uc web.. out of these I would go with (1) chrome followed by (2) citrio and then uc web not many I know -know about most of these browsers yet.

    It all boils down to personal preference.

    I switched to Chrome years ago because it had the best synchronization of bookmarks which were all saved in the cloud. So, no matter if I was at work, or at home, I had all of my bookmarks wherever I went.

    Chrome is also supported on Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. So, it supports my needs better.

    Use whatever browser you want, just because Chrome fits my needs well doesn't mean that you should use it.

    I find Edge still doesn't incorporate the features and abilities that a real client browser should.
    Chrome and Firefox are still tops in my book, however, with Chrome and Firefox increasingly dumping support for various add-ons and plugins, Vivaldi Browser may be worth a peek at.
