    I used Edge for a long time and I had always preferred it over Chrome but I must say it is very lacking. It was a good start but it's just like a lot of what MS is doing lately. They have a great start and ideas but just don't follow through on things in a timely manner. After I downloaded Vivaldi browser the other day I just shook my head at using Edge again. This is a browser done right and while there are some major things missing, like syncing profiles, it's amazing innovative and a breath of fresh air... and it uses all chrome extensions. Again, I really like MS products but there are just some major glaring holes and a third rate browser from a software giant is ridiculous.

    Edge is actually getting worse instead of better. I have no idea what the Edge team is even doing when the end result is a product that is almost unusable.

    I wonder when they will need to do a rebranding again, they've already ruined the "Edge" name.

    You can't keep doing this, Microsoft.

    I just switched back to Chrome. The last months I gave Edge a chance, but performance is not always good. I am tired of that and I want some stability for a while. I love Microsoft software, but Chrome is the better browser for the moment..

    It's not perfect, and needs improvement, but it's my daily driver. As with others, will use Chrome or Firefox where necessary, but it isn't that often.

    Yes, I'm very happy with it. I use it as my default browser both at work and at home. And I also use Bing as default search engine.
    At work I also use the Development tools from Edge.
    I have no complaints.

    Since I moved back to Chrome my Surface Book has become much more efficient and faster. No hangs. no problems when resuming from sleep. Edge is not performing well when many tabs are open. I really hope that Microsoft improves it further and makes it the better browser..

    Although edge is snappy and fast but load pages a little slower than chrome.

    The Edge scrollbar is ridiculously thin.

    It varies with updates and versions, but at this time, Edge freezes more frequently than Chrome when I use the Pen on the scrollbar to scroll.

    Edge is my preferred browser. It's reliable now and at last I feel safe to uninstall chrome which always was a backup option. Though I agree with people having syncing issues between desktop and mobile version. I'm sure this is the next thing they're going to fix.

    I don't think edge supports ad-blocker. Whenever I am surfing, websites shows pop-up messages and new tab opens every time. I'm using Opera now.

    Just install one of the available ad blockers and you are good to go.

    Still have issues with Edge. I have run into sites that just don't work correctly especially with drop down login menus. Also it is hit and miss with my Synology NAS interface. It is gradually improving. My alternate when something doesn't work in edge is Firefox.
