    One big reason I choose firefox over edge is cortana will display google search results if firefox is set as the default.

    - apparently there are big improvements to Edge on the way..
    Upcoming accessibility improvements for Microsoft Edge revealed

    sounds like some people won't be happy until Google/Chrome issues it's own OS to replace Win10 entirely..
    honestly - why would anyone buy a Rolls Royce and then bung a Morris Minor engine in it..

    - er.. no offence to Morris Minor owners intended, BTW..

    Good that they do that, since Edge is the best browser atm. I've used IE since it was released and this was the first time I've switched to another browser.

    What I HATE about Edge, is, you go somewhere likeGizmodo or Softpedia, that have a bunch of ads(not bad or iritating ones, but still a lot on the left & right sides) and you get there quickly, but, you can't scroll down(or scrolling is temporatily jerky) until every damn Google ad is loaded. Other browsers, either load in the background and use place holders till they're loaded, allowing you to scroll, or wait to switch until the page is rendered. I would rather look at and move around on the old page a moment longer, then frustratingly try to scroll...
    I tried both of those sites on a 7 Year old computer with Windows 10 and Edge, No temporarily jerky, both smooth, did the same with Chrome, roughly the same, Explorer was slower, Oh and this computer is on the outer edge of my Network signal. Maybe you have some other problem.

    I am sure Microsoft doesnt want me using my Android, my Linux boxes, or my MacBook Pro either. But Chrome runs on all of them, and with everything synced to my google account, I get the same experience no matter which platform I am on. That is why I use Chrome.

    That's only with a web browser, Microsft is doing the whole operating system on various devices, that's probably why they're asking people to give it a go, so they can find bugs etc, just today they've asked me twice if different websites have performed okay, and I said yes.

    Well it could be because I use IE as my primary(always have since it came out) and the caches are "primed" meaning it doesn't have much to load, only the changes(i.e. text), where as I use Edge only once in a while(just don't like the feel of it, but that's the same with many browsers I've tried and uninstalled, like Vivaldi, Opera, Maxthon, and, and ,and).

    Edge seems to be very good, however I do not use my browser/s to watch ads or search with only one search engine. Until that is sorted no Edge for me. IE11 is what I use and will continue to do so. If MS stops IE11 use before Edge is sorted I will go back to Chrome and FF. Microsoft has a lot at stake here and should give heed to what their users want.

    I've tried dozens of Browsers over the years, for me it's mainly about speed, naturally favourites, security and stuff come into play as well. I used Firefox for a long time, but it fell by the wayside a few years ago and I used mainly Explorer and Chrome. Edge felt a bit plain to me at first but I liked the speed so am willing to be a Guinea pig and keep testing it just like I'm an insider. If I felt it was at all slow I wouldn't be using it, I hate slow anything.

    From what I've seen in Windows 10 Microsoft is definitely listening, probably a bit too much sometimes, I think we'll get everything we want in Edge and more.
