    Hi All,
    I'm 'trying' to like Edge browser..but at least to me, it's STILL got a long way to go before it will be ready for the masses. I still enjoy using IE 11 in Windows 10..however since downloading/installing the latest Windows Insider build on the 'Fast' release cycle (#14361), IE 11 seems to be acting up more than usual.

    Just to be sure.
    Double check to make sure IE11 is still your default browser.
    If yes, go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab > Reset Internet Explorer settings > Reset

    I'm fairly new to Windows 10 (few days) I tried Edge, but soon went back to IE11and pinned it!
    Since you moved to Windows 10, I can tell you like fresh looks and new apps. I too use ie11 right now; but that doesn't mean I will stay stuck on it. Give Microsoft time to enhance Edge, then try it out again. Keep in mind, Windows 10 has evolved since it's inception. If they enhance Edge like they have Windows 10, it has the potential to be a good if not great browser.

    MS really had to release Edge with the intimal insider build so they could properly test and get feed back on the new browser. If we're honest the initial versions of the other big browsers(FF/Chrome) we're far from perfect when they first came out and now they're up to versions(47 FF/50 Chrome). Given how new Edge is I have to say that it's really not that bad and the insider version(build 14361) it works very good with the extensions.

    When the anniversary update comes down I plan on using Edge a lot more.

    When you put it that way, and I really think about it. Yeah your totally right. At least they could have released it with extension and the option for a menu bar would be nice. FF/Chrome did have and still have some issues. although I have to say compare to version of the past FF is defiantly more stable. I would actually like to give edge a try, and use it as more as my daily browser. I use it here and there [Removed Rule 13], and I do like it with its sweet sleek black look. I would kill to have my add-ins in edge and use it. I don't even think ie11 is that bad, and I've come to like it actually. have to use it at work since that really the only browser were suppose to use. but since I'm IT i have enterprise FF/Chrome for the few users that have it. I do have to know how to support the end user.

    I am really looking forward to the next update for Edge.

    my experience with edge is, that it is horrible browser.

    even some of well known games do not support it. so why would anyone use it?

    I use it for playing games even for xbox on my laptop, so what games have you tried that you cant play.
    Also I have used edge now for coming up for 11 months and have had not one bit of trouble with it

    I wouldn't say "horrible". A little too harsh. But I wouldn't use it myself.

    I, too, am sincerely trying to like Edge, but there are still too many issues that prevent it from being my daily driver. I find that it is often quite unresponsive for quite some time after seemingly having loaded a new page. It doesn't reliably remember page zooms from session to session, or sometimes even after simply refreshing a page. Sometimes Control+ and - don't have any effect, sometimes they do. And Favorites management is still clumsy. To me, it is very much 'beta', and I think MS should promote it as such.

    I Know some of you don't like Edge and some are having trouble with it but on the number of systems I look after, and help look after, have not had any of the problems some are getting. I find it fast and on favourites I have put them in folders A-Z and files same and they stay there even after an update.
    I prefer Edge to when IE or any of the others browser that first came out, now those are what you called slow and Beta.
    Believe me I have tried them all
