    Really?? I'd give Edge the same time that Chrome has had and let's see where it is then. Remember Chrome is up to at least version 45 and it's been around for about 7 years.,

    Given Microsoft's track record, I wouldn't be too optimistic.

    Agreed. Look at all the years they had to make IE great and failed.

    No doubt Chrome has a good head start. Microsoft is breaking away from "that's how it's always been done" syndrome. I'm sure Microsoft will continue to develop Edge and strive to make it the go to browser in time. We get to watch and see!

    Me too. Very occasionally I have to use IE, the rest of the time Edge. I prefer it and have no use for extensions anyway.

    dual boot win10/win7

    Looking around a few places, it seems as MS has managed to push Chrome usage even higher than before on win 10 and Edge. The browser is the single most important app on a any OS. Chrome's portability and extension support will remain dominant with the ability to sync across any platform. I hope FF hangs in there, but the HTML5 video has seemed to lag behind on win 10.

    I would use edge if there were some basic extensions, but it is really unusable without them, and the lack of cross platform syncing *handwave*

    Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281

    but Insiders are not an accurate representation of the people who use Windows 10 day-to-day,
    Ummm, say whut? We ain't!?

    Just because we like to live dangerously, doesn't mean we use our computers any differently than Average Joe.

    For my money, if Edge doesn't do the job (and it doesn't), then I'm not going to waste my time with it. And, since it won't be "finished" until sometime in 2016, I'll just change my defaults back to what they were before Microsoft muscled in and changed 'em.

    Windows 10

    I've been using Web Browsers since Mosaic, I spend an awful lot of time on the net, in all that time I think I've used one extension. Early on I used Netscape, then I tried Explorer, too slow. Sometime after that I used Firefox, then I started using Chrome, still never used extensions. Sometime in Windows 7 I started using Explorer again and Chrome.
    Now I use mainly Edge and sometimes Chrome, all I look for in a browser are speed and search capabilities, and importing favourites. Edge is good enough for me, I always keep Chrome handy just in case something goes wrong.
