    Ok I had to look that one up:

    IMO, all the modern browsers I've tried, rate a "meh" at best:

    • Chrome
    • FF (since v28)
    • IE
    • Opera
    • PM

    Microsoft Edge 20 (for Windows 10)

    Security and Privacy
    Edge offers significant security advantages over IE. Like Chrome, it runs in a sandbox, just as every modern Windows Store app does. This means browser processes are isolated from the rest of the system, so site code can't mess with the rest of your PC's operation and other programs. It also maintains IE's SmartScreen Filter, which blocks known malware-harboring sites and flags suspicious downloads. Also, by simply omitting ActiveX, VBScript, and Browser Helper Objects, it gives hackers less opportunity to wreak havoc.
    The 64-bit version of Edge is the only one allowed on 64-bit PCs (most, these days), and that provides better security due to a much larger address space for Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR). Chrome and Firefox, by contrast, are still installed as 32-bit applications by default.

    Unfortunately, Edge dispenses with IE's Tracking Protection feature, which prevented unwanted sites from sharing your browsing information with other sites. The lack of extension support probably explains this, and we may see the feature reinstated in updates. PCMag's guru, Neil Rubenking outlines Edge's security in Microsoft Edge Brings Bigger, Badder Security to Windows 10.
    The Edge in Web Browsing?
    Microsoft's new browser is refreshing in many ways. It's drastically faster and more compliant with modern Web standards than its predecessor, Internet Explorer. And by some measures Microsoft Edge is faster and safer than Chrome and Firefox. But it's still slightly behind on new Web standards support, and it lacks the extra goodies that those more-mature pieces of software offer. For a full-featured, fast-performing, and extensible Web browser, our Editors' Choice is Mozilla Firefox.

    Is palemoon really considered a modern browser? Yes, it incorporates the newer browser technology to some extent. However, the rest is forked from an older version of Firefox.

    I am forbidden to talk about the reasons I will not use Edge. Even if I wasn't I would still continue using Firefox as it is my Browser of choice and since we still have a choice I choose Firefox.

    I have used pretty much all the browsers. I use Edge as my primary now, and have no problems. Really looking forward to the future improvements in it.

    Depends on your definition.

    The last PM update was caused by Mozilla breaking (sorry ... "improving") another thing in FF.
