    Let's say Edge is "work in progress".

    So are you using the Safari for Windows that was out up to a couple years ago? I tried it on XP and really liked it a lot. Does it still work well?

    Agreed.

    It's not like browsers are a new product.
    MS must have ~20 years worth of data relating to IE.

    It's sites like CBS Chicago where I really miss not having a modern "Back" button that allows going back to certain viewed pages..or that website's home page. Something about news sites in particular (which I use a lot of in my job) that prevents Edge from returning to the front page, once you click on a story to read. To be fair, this also happens with I.E. and Firefox, but at least those browsers allow the direct access to visited pages, via the "back" button, which Edge lacks.

    It's a shame that I have to remember to use IE-11 or Firefox when visiting news and newspaper websites. Then, there's the print function of Edge, which works like it was designed by 3rd graders...

    It's no wonder that Microsoft Edge keeps losing users. Edge hasn't "lost" me yet, but FireFox and I.E.11 are getting more hours of use, while Edge is getting fewer hours of use, as time goes by.

    For me Edge has just about gained me as a user, Have been using it nearly all the time since beginning of December (have multiple MS devices so syncing of favourites is nice)

    For me, its the look/feel of it I don't like, on a desktop is looks too much like it was designed for tablet use, and on a small tablet it looks like it was designed for mouse use
    I know I am mostly alone with this bit, but desktop IE for PC's and Metro IE for tablets in Win 8.1 was much nicer and fitted the device it was being used on better

    I have no idea
    All I have done is remove all traces of IE 11 and I don't have any other Browser installed and we only use Bing for search.
    Also keep all systems updated with latest drivers
    Run Ccleaner Monitoring in background
    Have done that since first upgrade from windows 8.1

And I would have thought that MS would have cut the ties with the update process between the OS and the browser by now. Limiting the updates that occur with the browser never worked in the past and what makes them think it's still a good idea.,

    Let the browser people get to do updates when they're ready rather than waiting for OS updates.

    Hi here

    while I have reservations about Edge - I don't think the Back navigation is any problem

    For example from The BBC -- I click on the topic shown in the ist screenshot

    the second screen shot shows the linked to topic

    when you click on the back arrow you get the page you linked from -- so AFAIK navigation works fine.

    Click image for larger version.

    clicking on the back arrow again gives you the Home page.


    Cheers
