    Except it does not keep crashing or freezing like internet explorer did
    You really need to get your system/s fixed
    If you have problems with Chrome and also IE constantly crashes then you have problems

    That is not normal

    +1.. On my system and many others neither IE or Chrome crash and that's been this way for many years now, going back to the Vista days. I suspect like you system issues and not an issue with either IE or Chrome.

    Actually since the last few updates, my IE11 has been rock solid, and as far as Chrome goes, it has NEVER crashed on either of my 2 windows computers.

    IE11 & Edge are both solid for me, never have any crashes in either of them, use both daily depending on the sites I am viewing

    Cant comment on Chrome as I don't use it very often, but I do have it installed and keep it updated to latest version, just open it every few weeks to see if anything has changed

    Keep in mind that if Chrome was crashing like this there would have been a fix for it a while back and I know Google would never let a bug like this exist for over a day.

    All browsers are rock solid for me, just some are more quirky than others!
    YouTube still won't keep playing in Edge when minimized to the taskbar!
    They gotta get it to behave like a client and not an app in those respects.

    Edge
    I can't paste and go.
    I can't highlight a word on a site, right-click and search with Google.
    I can't easily reset the browser.
    I can't install extensions (password manager anyone?).
    I can't manage my bookmarks easily.

    This was understandable during Insider Previews. It simply doesn't work for prime time.

    Like most of the "Windows Accessories", Edge is just a "proof of concept" demo - in this case, something that will open web pages almost as fast as the main 3rd party browsers, and does little else, another toy.

    At least, it's not so dangerous and insecure like earlier IE iterations were.

    Yes, but without functions like setting Java and Flash to "Ask to Activate", and with the lack of extension support (a specific add-on which will go unmentioned here), people are getting infected, and you can't easily reset the browser - like every other browser in the world, including IE - but Edge is not easily reset!

    So, from a security point of view, in my opinion, Edge is very dangerous and insecure for the "average, not-so-savvy user".

    Following upgrade to W10 the font size of "Other Bookmarks" has reduced in size. Normal browser sizes are fine, just the Bookmark too small. Any way to increase those without increasing everything else? Thanks.
    Finally managed to get 10 up and running today! Yipee! The first thing I did was try Edge and I'm not impressed. So I've switched back to Chrome and it seems to be ok. I went with Chrome mainly for Chrometana. How is Firefox working for people...
