I've read where some folks had problems with IE11 crashing, since our last 2 or 3 updates, IE11 has not crashed once on my 2 computers. Rock solid for me. I also use Chrome too, which never gives me any problems. Edge has a VERY long way to go before I even look at it again. Completely USELESS for my needs.
so far I really like Edge, it has not crashed one time for me unlike IE... Windows vista and IE are the main reason that most of my computers are apple..... however so far I really like the dell latitude e6410 with windows 10 pro. windows 10 pro seems to be almost as stable as my mac desktop since it has not crashed one time yet... reason I say almost is I have only been using it for about a week and a half... have to see how it continues to behave.
Edge will in time be able to do what IE11 and Chrome can do
... I agree with all the critiques folks have mentioned. I also have tried to warm up to it, and I still check it out from time to time, but nothing seems to change...
The handling of favorites is abysmal, slow, unpredictable. Lack of ad blocking is unacceptable. I experience random freeze-ups and sometimes outright crashes. Here's one that I haven't seen mentioned yet: Let's say to want to go back 4 or 5 pages. You just click and hold the back-button and you are presented with a history list that you can pick from, right? NOT! Unlike any other browser I have encountered, you have to go back one. page. at. a. time. This is a major annoyance to me.
The thing just doesn't feel well-crafted - it feels very fragile and unpredictable and sloppy. It feels more like a cobbled-together 'proof of concept' than a released product, and in my opinion MS rushed it out the door too soon. In any case, it needs a LOT of work before I could consider using it regularly. I'd like to, but I just can't.
Even if Edge had all the above, I'd still opt for Firefox and Chrome as both perform better on my machine.
I'm bewildered anyone can use Edge as their primary browser as things stand, it's nothing more than a curio as far as I'm concerned. I'll keep an eye on it, but I'll be extremely surprised if it catches up with the more established browsers, let alone surpass them.
