    Edge is good but not good enough to stand on its own against Firefox and Chrome. I used it but I gone back to Firefox for the meantime due to lack of extension support. Will get back to Edge once RS1 Insider kicked in which is reported to bring extension support for Edge.

    If you don't like it why are you using it, or if not using it how would you know.
    Windows 10 is the OS I have never ever had trouble with
    I have used right from windows 3.1 upwards and even DOS.
    Worst was Vista.
    So at last Microsoft have got it right with Edge, Bing, Cortana and 10

    I agree Windows 10 IS the best version of windows ever...It had to be to lure me back from linux and ubuntu (which no previous versions of windows was able to do) :)

    As far as Edge....just don't like it....no extensions...can't adjust size of fonts or font styles...Even Internet Explorer is a much nicer browser to use but of course, it is on the way out...I use Google Chrome...it has always been my favorite browser, it was my main browser when i used Ubuntu (linux) and is my main browser on Windows 10....

    Have to admit I don't like Edge much either. Seems quite buggy and extremely basic looking. Have read about many users having problems with it. Personally I prefer IE11 or Mozilla. Whilst Edge hasn't given me too many problems it does occasionally refuse to open for no reason at all and I have to kill the process in the task manager to allow me to relaunch it. This happens very rarely but it's enough along with the lack of features to put me off it.

    I launch Edge every know and again before shaking my head and forgetting about it for a while.

    Personally, I think it has too much ground to make up. I'll give it another go once extensions are introduced but only out of curiosity.

    Right I do the same thing ( launch Edge every now and then ) and Edge never fails to disappoint me

    The only thing I do not like about Edge is that you cannot "mark text, right click and select search with Google".

    Not sure if I really need that many or any extensions.. I just want a fast simple browser and this fits the bill. But I want to see what MS comes out with in future insider builds.
    The other thing I miss is being able to pin applications to Edge (applications that I have stored on my SSD that open with IE (or Edge). I sometimes need to run these with a web page already open and to be able to right click the IE icon in the tray and have the application pinned there all ready to go was great.

    Count me among those who open Edge every now and then. I've tried to like it but .......... well, just read everyone else's gripes about it. Its no contest when it comes to my browser of choice Maxthon3 or my secondary browser Firefox.

    Wonder why Microsoft has such a hard time with browsers?

    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...
