    Thanks, but Speech Recognition is a dictation/command program that's been in Windows for many years.

    It recognises your speech - what you say. It's shown in the link and post I quoted.

    Hi dalchina, Sorry about that, only just realised I had it wrong, but speech recognition is also working.

    As far as I am concerned New Edge is just another version of the Microsoft Browser that comes free with Windows and I have been ignoring since Windows 98.
    Now that I am over my tantrum because updates were happening while I was making system changes I am chill.
    Edge will sit quietly and one day I might even check it out.


    I have been using the Dev version in a test VM. It's actually a good browser, quite different and far better than the Spartan Edge it is to replace (and no, that's not a derogatory adjective, it was actually Microsoft's code name for the old Edge before it was released). And being Chromium based you can add any of the extensions from the Chrome store.

    I have no doubt it is a good browser. Explorer in Windows 98 was a good browser. That was never the issue.

    The issue is having these things shoved down our throats without consent.
    I know this is a Microsoft marketing strategy, and it must work because they haven't given it up for 20+ years, but for some cranky old codgers like myself it is the immediate death-knell to any release.
    They seem to have caught on to that fact recently and have pulled back a little bit.

    And today it was my turn. My System One running 2004 Home, out of the blue, asked me when I would like the restart...

    While unasked for, it wasn't completely unwelcome. I had been testing the Dev build for more than a year now in a VM. Anyway, no sense fighting the inevitable. In Windows 10 version 2009 Chromium Edge will be standard, and baring accidents 20H2 is is only 3 or 4 months away now....

    The 20H2 feature update will be a scoped set of features and include the new Microsoft Edge based on Chromium. As part of today’s announcement, we’re also releasing the KB4562830 Enablement Package for 20H2 Build 19042.330 Version 2009...

    'Old' Edge was possibly my least used, but most important browser. With it's claim of being the most secure browser (and it's Spartan* feature set) I reserved it's use for just my banking and financial logins.

    I'm actually quite impressed by how smoothly the update went. Not only did my Favourites bar survive intact including its folders, but also the cookies etc that pre-filed my user ID on various of those sites seemed to have been imported. I'm probably not going to use it any more often than I did the old Edge, but it seems to have been a painless update.



    * Spartan was Microsoft's code name for the first Edge project - which explains a lot

    Google Chrome includes a tool called Software Reporter that send them a list of everything you have installed on your computer. It uses nearly 100% CPU and overheats my computers at over 80C with the fans blasting on full. I disable it and hate the hassle. It can be found here:

    C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\SwReporter\83.238.200\swreporter.exe

    Does the Edge version have the same? If so, will not have it.

    It does not exist at my end because I have used a CMD script to stop Chrome putting it onto my Windows. My \SwReporter\ folder has been empty since I installed Chrome.
