    Edge has too many short cummings for me. No easy way to manage favorites. No easy way to backup favorites. Cannot read digital magazines in Edge. Incompatible with Norton Anti-Virus and some of my extensions. So I will stick with IE11 and Chrome as my backup browser.

    Shhh!!! Don't tell my Edge browser that it doesn't have a Favorites Toolbar because it thinks it does.

    It has a Favorites Toolbar yes. But no easy way to manage the favorites which is a major deficiency for me.

    I would prefer to have my favorites out front like on a bookmark bar . Hope they allow that

I use bookmarks a lot, especially when I am researching something. Plus, it has no way to reset it, if it gets screwed up. It does render pages better than IE does, (credit on that one). I haven't noticed any great speed performance, I thought it was supposed to be the slowest of the 4, IE, FF, Chrome and Safari. Over all, I am just not impressed. Also, whatever happened to all those extensions it was supposed to have. Perhaps in 3-4 years, they will get around to working on it. But for now, no thank you.
    I agree 100% about the favorites. I disagree about the speed. Without ads, it is the fastest of all as it was designed to be. Yes it still needs work but it won't take 3-4 years. More like 1 at the most. I think 6 months may do it.

    Someone, did a comparison study on performance (can't remember where I saw it) and it had Edge coming in last, maybe they were biased. Not that it really matters much, they are all pretty much the same, speed wise, once they load. My FF takes forever to load. Time wise. I suspect they are working on to many other Windows 10 issues, to worry about Edge. I think they figure there are so many other browser options, and so few people using it, that it has a low priority. I could be wrong.

    Go to a site that doesn't have ads (yes, they do exist) and you will see just how fast Edge can be. Testing data I have seen ranks it first, then Chrome, and the others, (IE 11, FF, Opera, etc.) all about the same. If you go to a site that is heavy on ads, then yes, Edge will be the slowest since it has no way of blocking them at the moment. You are wrong about the priorities though, Edge is high on their list and is due for some major updates in the next few months. They want it to succeed.

    Hi there

    Three issues for me against using EDGE

    1) I Don't like TABBED browsing on a desktop so it's much easier to use IE11 with "old fashioned menus" with proper sorting etc of bookmarks and separate instances (especially on a multi-monitor setup). It's a fiddle to get to a bookmarked (favourite) site in Edge.

    2) Doesn't support SKY GO unlike IE11. OK this needs Silverlight (for SKY GO) - so however horrible Silverlight is I'm stuck with it if I want to use SKY GO on a desktop.

    3) It's no better at stopping "page hi-jacks" etc than IE11 -- many people have posted experiences of sites being displayed and unable to close the page because of "malware" -- and Malware bytes doesn't fix a lot of this stuff before people start pontificating about how wonderful malware bytes is. !!

    I'm happy to use things like CHROME on a mobile phone or small tablet --but on a decent desktop with a nice multi-monitor setup I want a PROPER browser - not one designed for a mobile phone screen and touch.

    I wonder from the Forum stats where CHROME appears to be the most popular browser - if the stats were restricted to people using WINDOWS (any version) I'm sure the results would be considerably different. A lot of people access the site via a mobile device such as a phone or tablet.

    As far as the (Yawn --Yawn !!) Browser speeds are concerned - so much depends on your computer, your video card rendering, the network (ISP etc) and the efficiency of code as well as the load on the target sites so browsing speeds I've always considered as an irrelevance --in any case if you take say a few MINUTES to read a page what difference does a few MILLISECS make in loading it.

    Cheers

    I'm using Edge. When it first appeared, in the Preview versions, I hated it. After I got my Favorites bar back and figured out how to use it and add to it, its got more useable for me. There are some things I still don't like and think Microsoft took a step backward trying to make one OS for all devices.
