    I want to see if this issue is just my computer, or is it universal.

    When using Edge, I find that loading websites, or advancing pages, is very very slow. It would appear that most of this occurs while the pages load all of the ads that I never read. Trying to read a simple article takes far too long because of this.

    Maybe this is because of all the ads, or maybe it's an Edge issue, or maybe it's my computer ( least likely situation ).

    If others have seen this, have you found any solutions. One of the greatest offenders is the MSN site, but Windows Central is also sluggish. Most of these sites are large, and established. Also, my download speeds are quite fast ( over 100Mbs ).

    Your thoughts will be appreciated.

    For me, it's even slower than IE. I'm typing this on my phone because I can't even open WC on edge. It kind of froze. Both chrome and Firefox are way faster.

    Yeah Edge slows down on several websites for me. Sometimes the sites don't have many ads and it stills slows down.

    I have noticed sometimes it completely freezes for a minute or two on websites with heavy media content, lots of images or a video player (flash usually), but these issues are not present when I open them up in Firefox.

    Edge is significantly slower on almost all sites, sadly.

    Since there's no ad block yet one fix is to modify the PC's Hosts file. Adding a list of known advertisement servers with a specific location prefix will block the connection of all ad junk originating from said servers.

    This mod will do wonders running IE on RT devices and on Edge on Windows 10. You'll see a few ads here and there but none to minimal. One issue is watching TV episodes on the web where ads and commercials are forced may cause the video to not play or appear to not play. Sometimes the videos work after waiting for the non existent commercial to play through it's timer, also non existent. Ain't nobody got time for that.
