Windows 10: is it me or is ie11 better than edge?

    No telemetry.


    They won't be getting any telemetry from me. I changed the start page in Edge and now it crashes before it does more than open the window. Epic failure.

    I vote with the Edge-haters!


    Ok, so Edge is early in its development. So what? I want something that works now -- and in the way I want it to work. I agree with people who are saying that Edge seems like some kind of (not-too-great) mobile browser. Surely I'm not the only one who still uses my desktop with a keyboard and mouse?

    I'm staying with IE11 for now, too. The only problem I'm having is when I click on a hyperlink in an Outlook 2010 email message: the annoying window "How do you want to open . . ." pops up, even though IE11 is my default browser. (If you set a different default browser -- like FireFox -- everything works fine. The problem is just with the Outlook 2010/IE11 combination.)

    edge seems massively dumbed down, very bare options configuration compared to IE11.

    From what I can see all of the following are missing.

    No options to toggle tls 1.1 1.0 1.2 etc.
    No options to toggle gpu acceleration
    No options to set file cache location (I like to use ram disk)
    No security zones
    No tracking protection lists
    No addons
    No advanced cookie settings
    No per domain settings
    No options to adjust certificate verification
    No options to adjust UTF-8 and IDN
    No toggle for crash protection
    No tab options

    Basically edge feels like a mobile orientated app, as it uses the "modern" interface.

    Is there a reason to use edge instead of IE11? aside from future proofing as I am assuming IE11 at some point will be obsoleted by Microsoft.
    I would add a few things to the list of missing features.

    Unable to sort favorites (I want the folders at the top, not the bottom.)
    Can't add search engines (Yahoo and Twitter are the only ones that show as options. I want Google) EDIT: Something has changed because if you go to the Google search page, then it appears in the list of providers you can choose

    I like Edge but just can't use it now because of the missing things. It is very fast but would be faster if ads could be blocked. Pages heavy in ads load slower than with IE and a tracking list.

    big reason for me sticking with IE is favourites sync (not sure if this is not implemented yet or I have an issue)

    With IE I can use my laptop or tablet and the favourites would stay in sync and be in the same order on both my devices
    with Edge I have no sync and have to set up favourites on each device

    Presently, I use Edge for this forum and one other. For me it works just fine and it's extremely fast. I like what it can do and IMO the future of Edge looks very bright.

    YMMV
