    I prefer Edge over IE and Chrome....only disadvantage does not support Sky Go.
    I might be wrong but wouldn't Sky Go have to make changes to the site to allow it to function properly in Edge and not the other way around??

    You are right, but why should Sky go to all that trouble while IE is still available,
    Trying to load Sky Go in Edge informs it is not compatible, and then is immediately switched to IE.

    I agree fully with you
    Been using Edge since Day 1
    Also Merry Christmas
    Good to see a fellow member appreciate the advantages Edge and Cortana together offer.
    Wishing you too....a Very Merry Christmas.

    Edge is really not an option in the real world.

    Good, bad, doesn't matter.

    I work with many people, who have different operating systems, I have a ton of useful bookmarked tools I use (Chrome). I go to their establishment, download my Chrome (or use theirs), log in, and within minutes I have all my bookmarks. Edge is simply not universal enough, it isn't available on any thing other than Windows 10. Goodness, I can even use Chrome or FF on my Kindle fire device.

    It has been over a year and Edge numbers are pretty static. I just can't see it as attaining any great usage, to many things against it, and to limiting IMHO.

    At home, I use Edge and nothing else. At work, I only can use IE 11, which is a prehistoric solution - if only because more and more websites just simply refuse to work on an outdated (their wording) browser. And unless IT department goes berserk and updates to Win 10, it will never change.

    Because MS will eventually drop IE and given they've dropped support why have a website on a browser that might have long term security issues??

    MS Edge works fine, it does everything I expect from a browser. It is compatible to my PC. I do not care in the least for the cloud service which also works on other win 10 devices.

    It is fast and adheres to the HTML standards closely.

    I use Chrome as a backup these days. Only one of the websites I access still requires IE 11 to be used.

    I do not like the invasive nature of Chrome. I do not want nor use the cloud services. I do not want all the cross pollination between devices either.

    It's a shame Windows 10 doesn't prefer Edge Browser. I have many more Event errors with Edge than Chrome or Firefox. Strange Microsoft can't make their own browser work with Windows 10 as well as the other browsers, isn't it?

    As I am not on the board at Sky, I am not able to pass on your concerns, nor am I involved in their decision making.

    I doubt you have to be on the board to figure this one out. Web companies look at market share of browsers, just like OS programs. Chrome and IE still own the lions share of the market, with Chrome growing quite a bit after Microsoft announced the demise of IE. To the point of many here, Chrome's advantage is being multi-platform. Personally I use Edge as much as possible. I find it fast and a better performer than Chrome. Additionally, for my 2n1, I like the fact it works well in touch mode.
    That said, nothing is more maddening than a website that won't work with Edge. However, as a developer I understand cost. If you have a legacy site that works well with Chrome and IE there is no financial reason to change it to be Edge compliant, at least not until your next planned site upgrade. So I think over time sites will all work with Edge, but it isn't going to be a priority anytime soon.
