    I am currently using Firefox 41 Beta 8, I would never use IE and Edge is still not a finished product.
    Not sure I would know what a finished browser would look like ,,,it been years since I stopped using Firefox as my main browser ,I just didn't like the way it was starting to look , I only use my computer for internet and storing file and stuff ,like connecting to my Raspberry Pi ,creating bootable thumb drives of windows iso and such ,not much else so I like the way IE allows me to setup my favorites and stuff like multiple home pages ,, just what one gets use to I guess ,, I'm starting to play with edge a bit more and figuring how to use favorites and multiple home pages, so I guess I could really be using just about any browser ,,so I use the one I like best

    That is what I plan on doing but until they make EDGE user-friendly, I will stick with IE11 or Firefox. Since I am running on a test ex win 8.1 PC, I cannot really test all of the functions of EDGE But having read the problems that are being reported on Feedback, I think it will be a while before EDGE is user ready.

    the more I use edge ,the more I find that makes it user friendly ,like mouse clicking on a saved favorite and moving it to a different location on the favorites bar ,ect ect

    I attempted to change my default search engine from Bing to another engine without success. Until Bing is easy to ditch I won't touch Edge. Staying with Firefox.

    You can.. just set up a new tab, pull up Google Via Bing.
    Then go into settings and this is what you'll see..
    Choose Google as your default in place of Bing.. It worked for me just fine.

    I don't use "zoom" , i just hold down "control" and hit the + and - buttons to make things larger and smaller .

    you do use zoom .its the same thing .25% increments, your just using short cut keys ,,, thanks for the reminder ,it will save me from going to view with my mouse
    Doesn't "Ctrl +Scroll Wheel" let you zoom in and out in Edge?

    It works in other browsers and lots of other software.

    No problems.

    I have previously made the mistake of assuming people know all of the functions of a standard mouse.
    A person on another forum was complaining about how difficult it was to open new tabs using his mouse.
    It turned out that he didn't know that the mouse scroll wheel also has a button and that could be used to open a link in a new tab.
