    Edge as SLOW as molasses when downloading

    Hi there
    Edge seems as SLOW as molasses when downloading almost anything --IE11 (still !!) and Firefox MUCH MUCH faster -- same websites, download to SSD and same Internet speed so proper test.

    The only thing I use edge for now is the built in PDF reader - otherwise it's USELESS --and if you have SKY GO you still can't use it !!!!.

    (Running from latest W10 Pro X-64 updates).

    I agree that Edge is slow, Downloads haven't been a problem, downloads been less than 2 minutes using Edge. it slow loading start page and browsing. clicking links from Email, it seems fairly faster than just clicking icon in task bar.

    Edge is fully script based, scripts are generally bad for performance, I can not even run it because of that. :)
