    Are you able to right click on a word or name and then ask Cortana about it? I know most people never cared about this feature (not even Microsoft), but I liked using it.

    I used to use it too. I don't know if it is or not in the new Edge. And other question comes then: is going the classic Edge to coexist? Or it is going to dissappear and only have the new one?

    No Cortana integration, at least right now, and probably never as previously constituted. I'm sure she'll make a reappearance in Edge down the line when MS figures out her new "pervasive" form. As to old Edge, while it's still present b/c of OS & app integration, it's effectively replaced from a user perspective. It's no longer an option in the apps list and there doesn't appear to be an easy way for the average user to get at it. But I'm guessing there's a registry key you can set to make it available if you need/want it.

    I just not understand why was necessary to make a navigator based on Chrome. Edge always worked perfect for me, and with a very nice interface (in fact, for my preferences, better tan Chrome or Firefox).

    Maybe because MS, in all their endeavours, have sometimes been so hopelessly out of touch with consumers. So this time, instead of spending time and money on their own tech (and to see it fail), they just used existing tech that people know already and built around it.

    For the OP, as said, it doesn't have Cortana integration. I'm enjoying the release version of Edge Chromium so far.
