    Lets Get real MS I don't even use your dang edge browser! You are pathetic. OH well,lets hope you do better in the future! LMAO.
    I have no worries. I have at least 10 back up images on a external drive. Yes @ Guytronic, I'm bored my friend, but I'm not worried. I'm fearless! Not much scares this old country boy. I've been there and done it. Good night my friend!
    Happy computering!

    Edge on desktop is a bummer.
    At least for me it is.

    Favorites management is clumsy but for the rest I think it's fine...

    I just don't understand whether edge "syncs" or not, or what exactly does it sync, it used to be that IE running on my pc/laptop/phone ran admirably, history/favorites/opened tabs etc all was synced, I could just go from one to the other and carry my browsing over, on edge I don't see anything syncing even though there is a setting stating so, which I have enabled everywhere, yet none of my devices seem to catch the other's favs/history etc, and now I have even more devices, cant be all of them failing I hope...

    I'll say this... While I'm not a fan of Edge so far; the few times I decided to use it for light browsing, it did not disappoint. Could it be my full-time default browser? not quite yet, but it is getting there. There are moments when I like to have the webclipper and onenote integration on hand, but of course other browsers offer extensions.

    but don't we have extensions on edge now? that's why I started using it since 1607, it even got 1 extra extension that ie didnt have for me, lastpass, which is helpful, but also irritating half the time

    I use Edge as my main browser on desktop and the Adblock Plus extension. I can log into here just fine and I do not see any ads or anything like that. Edge isn't a bad browser, as others have mentioned favourites handling could be better, but it is slowly getting better.

    This is why i don't get why MS is pushing Edge. Even the fans don't want to use it because it SUCKS. I'm sorry but it's true. I try every time they release a new update and it always is a painful experience.

    *Sites crashing and waiting for me to recover them
    *Not able to make comments on a lot of webpages
    *Login cookies constantly disappearing from sites

    It's a mess.

    I've had no issues with Edge. However, windowscentral.com is, BY FAR, the most poorly optimized site I use on a regular basis. It doesn't matter what platform I am on or what browser I am using it's simply horrible!

    Hi I keep getting errors that Microsoft edge has quit working and that's not true. That messes up my Reliability Monitor and that really irritates me.
    After I reset edge, it's OK for awhile and then the error comes back,so I don't use it. I've always been a fan of Firefox!
    I'm hoping the maintenance people are working on the servers here at WC. A lot of members are complaining. I'm not having any issues here, but several members are having issues!

    any idea why the "like" button doesnt work now? I can do it just fine on WC UWP app though

    here's a simple rule for me: DO NOT rely on ANY UWP to get "real work" done on a regular basis, they are simply not good enough yet, the platform itself is not, see as long as you stay on legacy win32 desktop side, everything works as intended and is fairly easy to diagnose and fix in no time, on UWP side though, I don't even care anymore, I cant use any maps related apps now because there seems to be file corruption that neither sfc nor dism can fix or find, and trying to fix anything on UWP is a nightmare, even uninstalling-reinstalling them is beyond a normal users' reach for some reason

    you may wonder why edge is being pushed even though "it sucks" well, computing is being geared towards the general public now, not the tech enthusiasts of yore, you better get used to sad face BSODs and crashes with no error code in sight, thats going to be the norm, may seem ridiculous to us, but edge works perfectly for almost everyone, they just install chrome cause its the cool thing to do and their geek friend/relative will do it for them at some point, same reason for using google and not bing even though they can barely tell them apart

    Honestly the only site I can think of that crashes and need to recover is windowscentral. But it doesn't happen with adblock turned on. On rare occasion pinterest will crash too.

    Hi I spend all day on WC. I have never crashed or had any problems. No ad-blockers ! What's different with those having problems? IMHO a different server, but no one listens to this old country boy!

    Might be an issue with adblock and the website.. Try turning off you adblock and check if the like button works

    Hi the problem is Windows Central. @James has posted that they are looking into this issue and it will take time.

    I use Edge daily on my AMD machine at work, Intel workstation at home, and XPS 13 laptop. No problems at all, and I'm well pleased with it. Was very happy to leave Chrome behind in the XP / Windows 7 realm.

    Sorry friend! We have a lot of unhappy WC members and I believe in telling it like it is! I'll be good now!
    Thanks for all you do here! You are appreciated!

    Edge is garbage. Period. It's actually worse than IE11 at this point in time and I'm not being extreme or dramatic.

    I have explained why it is many times but I'm just over it now and too lazy.

    I use Edge as my default browser and I am not a fan. It routinely stops working and needs to recover. Someday I will get off my *** and change browsers.
