    All that means is that the websites have workarounds for those other browsers but not for Edge, lets place the blame where it should lie and that's squarely with the websites themselves. If Edge was the problem then most, if not all, websites would have issues so explain to me how issues only occur with some websites?

    I also never stated that issues don't exist so stop putting words in my mouth!!!!!
    You have been attempting to minimize the problems that Edge has by blaming the websites or the settings, etc. There is a reason that this thread was started and there is a reason that MS is having to run ads on Facebook trying to get people to adopt it, and it isn't because everything is fine and dandy with Edge.

    I think this thread should have been divided into 2 separate sub-threads. One for desktop and another for mobile. Edge for mobile is incomplete at best. As a creature of habit I use Firefox on my PC devices because I've been using it for so long. On mobile however, there are few choices and even fewer on Continuum. My biggest beef with Edge on mobile is printing. I've solved that problem with Monument Browser and it's Continuum-compatible to boot. It's slow and clunky as the day is long but it gets the job done where Edge can't.

    Simply put, Microsoft needs to shore up Edge across the board.

    This is about the WIndows 10 PC version of edge, NOT the mobile

    I try, I really do but, over an over I have problems with edge. Some sites are not formatted correctly, others I cant do basic tasks, like copy a tracking number from ebay (that I have never had a problem in IE or firefox). And a deep check about a month ago, Edge still uses more resources than IE, almost double the memory alone.

    I have Edge disabled right now, removed all shortcuts and set IE as default for now, next time a major update comes down, I'll give it a shot.

    On my PRIMARY machine, I am NOT enrolled into the preview program. I need a stable machine and although MOST Preview program builds are fine but, 1-2 times through the whole thing, it damaged W10 to a point where a rebuild was the only way out. I need it working so sad to say, I cant play.

    A very uncomfortable experience: It notice me that I can't launch it with the built-in administrator account. And I have to create a new account ,or use the third-party browser. How strange!!!

    I am a developer, learning to code. So pretty much all the time I have Visual Studio and a browser open (because I always have to search and read a lot on the web about coding). One thing I noticed is, Visual Studio and Edge both would get really when I was using them simultaneously.

    Then I though about switching to Opera, and I did. After, Visual Studio runs just fine without any problem. So I am using Opera and really enjoying the built in ad blocker and free VPN.

    The only reason I was using Edge is because of favorites sync, but somehow nothing is syncing between my devices for a reason I don't know. So, I gave up on Edge and very happy with Opera.

    Recently they revamped the Opera browser for Android and boy, that looks really good! So, much that I wish I were using Android.

    Yes, but a good browser should compensate that...

    I haven't minded Edge on my phone. Nothing to write home about but no major complaints either.

    Edge on my tablet, however, has been a wholesale dumpster fire. It's by far the slowest browsing experience I've ever had on any device or operating system. It constantly freezes requiring me to close the browser and open it again. It's god awful. If it weren't for synched favorites and reading lists between my phone and tablet, I would have stopped using it already.

    Here's a rant on Edge that isn't Microsoft's fault using Edge to access Youtube go full screen and get a 1/4 screen ad saying Get Chrome now to enjoy a better experience, click anywhere not exactly on the small X in the upper right and you get taken to the Chrome download page.

    I have a weird problem with Edge Mobile.

    My use-case. I don't like apps in the back-stack. This means, when I am on the Start screen, I don't want the back button to take me anywhere.

    So, after I am done browsing, I close all the tabs and hit the back key to exit out of Edge. Many times, Edge gets stuck there. Back key doesn't take me to the Start screen, while the Start key does. I can't open a tab or browse while Edge is stuck. The only way to get out of this situation is hold the back key, and force close Edge. Then open Edge again, which loads the website again, the close the tab and back out of Edge.

    This sucks big time!

    Edge does NOT play Microsoft Windows Media Player so I can't watch several Internet TVs.

    What page does it out if you have closed all tabs? :)

    By the way I always "force-close" my apps when I'm done, I don't need them sitting there in the background.

    But yes, it should leave the app after you hit the back button in your situation.

    I do like them sitting in the background because they don't show a splash screen then.

    By the way, Edge sometimes freezes while it is still on that website (be it any), or when I close all the tabs, it goes to the default blank Edge page, and freezes there. On pressing back, nothing happens. On pressing tabs button, it shows no tabs and pressing back key doesn't do anything there too.

    So, I have to force close it, and reopening Edge loads all those websites again (those which I was trying to close) and this time closing the tabs works.

    Weird and annoying!

    I don't know if it's due to yesterday's update to .726, but Edge is constantly reloading some pages now. I was trying to read a couple of articles this morning and couldn't even get through the first paragraph without it reloading. It did it every time, and I finally gave up.

    I long ago edited my host file when W10 first came out and that has made the experience very good. Even without that, there seem to be very few sites that just don't work in Edge. Even on most insider builds it's pretty solid, but then again that means I'm seeing the almost weekly improvements to it.

    I don't see that happening on my Surface Book running the .726 build.

    Comment on the mobile version: it drives me nuts that loading the blank start page shows a progress bar that takes 1-2 seconds to complete loading.. nothing! Also, if you open Edge and start typing in the address bar, more often than not it minimizes the keyboard after half a second. Build 15014. And reloads of already open pages is still bad after many months. Other than that it's good. :)

    I haven't used edge for a while. It's annoying that I can't sort/move bookmarks, or open several bookmarks in one go (i.e. select, say, 7 bookmarks and open them in tabs all at once). It's so annoying, that I don't actually use edge anymore. There are other things that annoy me, and although I can't remember them right now, it all comes back whenever I decide to try edge again to see if it has improved.

    Edge Mobile is unusable, since I can't have any sort of advert blocking on it - native or plugin. It's ridiculous in that regard.
    I was hoping that at some point I can use both mobile and PC Edge, due to to all the syncing, drawing, and so on.

    I don't use Edge. It's just a browser I use to download Google Chrome and Firefox. The thing is that I familiar with both of them than Edge. In the past, I don't use IE as default browser.
