Windows 10: Windows 10 Users Give Up on Edge

    Don't use Edge. Did use it for the Insider program, but it was far too much of a "beta" for me.

    Doesn't look like it's STILL anywhere near the capabilities of IE -- which continues to work fine for me in Win10.

    Mostly use Firefox 64-bit, and have been for a while -- which surprised me when I read TODAY that it just got released in 64-bit!

    Apart from not being able to have the RoboForm toolbar I like Edge, it's the only one I use. Occasionally I try IE again but that is a nightmare on here, it freezes and takes ages to get anywhere and I'm not going back to it even if it does have RoboForm toolbar.

    I find Edge a lot faster and my most visited sites are all in a line along the top of the page so I can just click one and be taken straight away to the site.

    I like that it's not cluttered plus there's the reading view if you want.

    They did manage a nice implemenation of a 'reading' view. But there is so much lacking, in terms of what I expect from a modern browser...

    I used to believe in Santa Clause when I was young and naive.

    What I think you may fail to understand, is that when Microsoft designs something and it has basic flaws, they almost never correct them. Even if it were to get extensions, very few people will write apps for it. Why should they? It will be the least used browser and losing users even now, and it is only available on Windows 10, (it isn't standalone). I just can't see it. But you go ahead and keep on wishing, I hope you prove me wrong.

    Edge is beautiful and smooth for reading and posting to forums like this..but that's about it. The browser is called "Edge" because it's always teetering on the edge of being trashed by a majority of Windows 10 users! No multi-page "back" button, print options stink, etc.. There are entire blogs dedicated to how little thought Microsoft put in to making Edge "user friendly".

    I have to make a correction...
    I complained that Edge imported bookmarks backwards and had no bookmark manager. It appears as though this has been corrected. Unfortunately, since Edge has no reset that I am aware of, I had to delete it and restore it via Powershell. The above said he/she didn't care for it's print functions, personally I found it tolerable, somewhat like Chromes.

    Even with the bookmarks now working, I am still not fond of it.
    Where are all the bookmark icons? It also seems sluggish to me.

    I noticed that the spell check crashes the browser.

    Edge hangs and freezes and becomes unresponsive here here and otherwise lacks functionality common to almost any modern browser . I'm not surprised about the spell check crashing Edge .


    MS should dock the pay of the buffoons that made it or send them to APPL or Google ☻☻

    Not had any crashes or freezes with it, and spell check works fine for me, just tried it

    apart from add-ons, for me it needs to adjust better to the device it is being used on, eg on my Laptop the UI is too big and on my tablet it is too small (Laptop not a great issue, but on tablet its a pain to use)

    I am typing this in Edge as I want to like it and use it

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...
