    I have used Chrome for the past 3-4 years all the time, except last Saturday when I used Edge without problems all day.
    I will continue to use Edge on my busy weekends and check it out. MY wife has only used MS ie for years....

    - the Edge's dark theme looks smart..
    - gives it a really professional feel..

    Of course. Edge is still slower than Chrome and has no extension support.

    This isn't surprising.

    Also, is this 2% of all W10 users or 2% of all web users?

    Edge is almost more of a app than it is a browser plus it is early in development, not even supporting extensions yet.

    Using developer editon 33 of Opera browser, best looking, extension using of the bunch in my opinon.

    I do like Edge but the two big things I'm waiting on: extension support (more specifically, WOT) and the ability to change users like in Chrome. While the latter isn't as big a deal, I rely on WOT to ensure I don't go to a site that looks legit but is not.

    Don't want to be forced to use Bing search. Cannot get it to change to something else. I am sticking to firefox.

    It's not surprising that only 2 percent are using Edge. It's not fully cooked yet.

    It will be usable once they get some extensions that you can add.

    You don't have to use the BING search, Sarah. I changed mine to Google. Just check the Tutorial section.

    After 3 weeks on Windows10, I'm finding myself using EDGE more than IE11. Edge is much better at reducing the annoying advertisements that pop-up, or auto-play on many websites. It's much more enjoyable to use in that regard. Dark theme is nice too.

    Don't like the lack of built-in browser control however. No way to add sites to various security/privacy zones, stop the "mixed content" pop-up, etc.. You can change settings in the Internet Options in the legacy version of the "Control Panel", but that only affects IE11 (or whatever IE browser you use)...not EDGE, as far as I can tell.

    I've just checked the TF site stats.

    Chrome 60%
    Firefox 16%
    IE 8%
    Safari 6%
    Edge 4%
    Opera 1%
