Edge is fine

It's the browser that ships with Windows so you know it's gotta be ok

blocks tracking and poo poo? sure whatever

it looks exactly like that other popular browser

need to view a webpage? Edge has your back

run the same extensions as that other browser

supposedly takes less power to run

downloads appear in the top right

can't decide on a browser to use? try Edge, it's right there :)

Iíve been using bing instead of google and itís just as good. sometimes I can find something on bing I canít on google and vice versa. I was able to find some technical manuals for my new piano on bing that google doesnít know about

perfectly adequate describes it well. preferable to chrome for obvious reasons, but microsoft can't resist adding their own veneer of poo poo to the thing, e.g. the idiotic coupon extension and the bing-pushing start screen. easy enough to opt out of, but entirely pointless caveats to the thing since i highly doubt they make any relevant money from those decisions.

hard to say exactly why but edge feels cleaner than chome or firefox. something about the tabs

i use edge at work, it is thoroughly OK.

one things that sucks is edge doesn't have the option to cycle tabs in most recently used order. im aware there may be a plugin to fix this but work disables plugins :geno:

oh yeah, there's another edge mostly-downside, support for a bunch of group policies which will almost invariably only be used to break stuff for you for no reason.

I use Edge when I need to test on :chome:ium browsers, or when I need to see if one of my many firefox addons is causing a bug.


Also, I use Edge on Linux

i use edge on windows, macos, and ios because its the only browser that syncs between all those operation systems and itís not firefox or directly owned by an advertising company. its extremely needs suiting

After a recent update there's now an edge window already open every time I log into my work laptop.

It's like being greeted by a pet, except it's the landlord's annoying yappy dog and it's dragging its rear end across the carpet.

I tried edging at work today and discovered the top of any maximised windows turn into blank white voids that are invisible to the mouse after I unlock my pc.

The only fixes so far are closing every edge window before I lock it or a reboot lol.
