    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
    The bug appeared with build 11082.. the previous builds didn't have this issue.

    was thinking it might be related to new release just after I posted

    not seen mention of spell checker failing before

    It worked just find and it has an auto-correct that is great. Seems to have a bug right now for some reason.

    I use Chrome and sometimes Firefox who needs Edge.? ....... except maybe to download a better browser ☻
    My main use of Edge !!! But seriously folks, tried to check speed against other browsers and on site flagged it as Chrome !!!!!
    MS is trying to be too original with it, anybody used to functions of other browsers, even IE, is going to have learning curve to use it to it's fullest. I for one am used to Menu Bar and don't care for any other bars. All I need is good and large surface to look on.

    Have to admit Edge does feel quite fast. But every so often I'll click the pinned edge icon on my taskbar and nothing launches. It's easily fixed by a reboot or go into task manager and kill the edge process. Then next click it opens fine. It's an intermittent issue and doesn't happen often. But it's certainly enough to put me off edge. Mozilla and IE seem rock solid.

    AFAIK Edge is a UI app and not a x86 .exe or no?

    I love the article comment that extensions are "right around the corner." Then defining around the corner as summer of next year. We are just now getting into Winter 2015. Around the corner would be Feb. or March. Late winter/early spring maybe true for the preview builds, but nobody else. Not to mention then folks need time to code the extensions. For me Edge is useless regardless of extensions. You can't selectively turn off javascript and other features, leaving you with web pages that puke adds and multi-media on to your browser for 30 seconds before you can even view the content you are interested in. Edge, in the not near future, may gain market share, but I would not look for anything significant in the next year.

    I'm liking it! Love the simplicity and the way it handles favorites.

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...
