    Works for me 100%. In fact, I fully made it my main browser six months ago and I don't regret it.

    I use edge all the time on all devices and have zero problem with it. So, not sure what people are accessing to have trouble????

    One that doesn't work for me is Amazon Prime video. I can get to Amazon fine but when I drill down into Prime Video to play, the tab goes unresponsive.

    So there are some pretty major websites that have issues. Saying that, I still use it as my primary browser.

    Never freezes for me, but has some minor bugs on certain websites. It is my main browser, I like it.

    I have only been using Edge on both PC and Windows Phone 10 for over a year for sure, maybe longer. I have never had any problems with the browser crashing or any web pages not working correctly. However, I did have my bookmarks completely disappear once (thank goodness for a relatively recent backup of my bookmarks), but then just a few days ago I noticed yet another instance of where some bookmarks were simply gone. Most were still there, but some very frequently used bookmarks had again disappeared. I have no idea why that keeps happening, but it IS very frustrating. Otherwise, I have had no problems with Edge.

    I've been using the W10 version since it's release and it's gotten even better with extensions. The Android version started off strong but without ad blocking extensions it gets bogged down which is ashame. the bookmark sync doesn't seem to work well either. I do prefer it's speed on desktop

    Using edge for everything possible. It seems more and more sites is blocking it citing lack of functionality.
    My main online accounting system did just that last year, recommending internet explorer or other browser (Chrome Firefox etc).
    To me it feels like Microsoft once again is dropping the ball, creating something good, too late.
    It is unbelievable edge is not compliant enough after more than two year, to be used by market leading online sites.

    Its my Primary browser on my Windows 10 machine and works pretty well. I use it 90% of the time. I mostly use Chrome for GSuite and WebEx. I think people have a preconceived notion in their heads that Edge will suck because of some early review they saw.

    The original post is seriously messed up. I've used Edge as my only browser (yes I uninstalled Chrome) since it came out and Edge is a great browser. Once in a blue moon there is some site that is messed up on Edge, but seriously I can't even remember the last time that was the case.

    Edge is clean. And frankly it's not a memory hog like Chrome has become. Just do a Task Manager and click on the Processes tab (I'm doing it right now on a device in the household which still has Chrome), and what do I see 11, yes 11 stinking Chrome.exe *32 processes. What the what?

    If anything... Chrome... has become the new Internet Explorer. The 1000 pound elephant, corporate monolith, that the greedy Alphabet corp keeps stuffing down our throats.

    Plus Edge has some really cool unique features, like the reading list (in addition to the favorites list), which I use all the time when I want to finish reading a particular article, but not necessarily pin it forever in my favorites list, and an integrated eBook reader that will read aloud to you. Plus reward points! And when used with Bing, the search experience is beautiful, even educational, with it's picture of the day.

    Edge for me, is what Chrome used to be. Simple, clean, fast, innovative, standards based... refreshing.

    It mostly works well for me, and I would like to go with it full time instead of Chrome. However, Chrome's dev tools blow Edge out of the water and that's really the only thing holding me back at this point. I'll admit that they've improved upon them recently, but they still don't match Chrome, so I'm stuck with Chrome until Edge catches up (if it ever does).

    use it everyday! never have any issues! I am a systems engineer for global publishing company.
    this is an absolute lie. do you work for Microsoft? I have an amazing system that I hand built.
    installed pure, clean windows downloaded directly from Microsoft and Edge freezes, chops and chokes quite often. There is No way that you've never had issues with this browser.
    I am trying to make it my default. I want it to be my default. I use it 99% of the time.
    I love Edge, but to say it doesn't have issues discredits you being any kind of engineer. For anyone.
    or are companies now giving out titles like they do trophies to kids that don't win?
    Global publishing.. hmm meaning you can copy and paste a link from another web site?

    I use Edge everyday, but for some tasks I must use Firefox because: it has the "view image" option, feed RSS reader, a better favourites menu, a "search on Google" contextual menu and password view.

    I used to use Edge all the time but now I use Firefox Quantum. Once the UWP Edge on Xbox actually syncs and book sync arrives on mobile I'll porbably switch back. Edge is also sorta slow relative to Firefox, but it's not a huge deal.

    I have a number of issues with Edge as well. Initially it was my browser for locking myself into "study mode" where the only favourites I had in it were related to my uni courses. But after the way they changed how flash works in it and a few other changes that I can't explain away, a lot of pages are just plain broken in Edge.

    I don't know if this is something Microsoft has done, or if it's because Chrome or Safari have ruined how web developers handle browser compatibility, but pages that are absolutely fine in Firefox just fail to work in Edge.

    Now I use Edge as my Facebook browser so I can be productive in Firefox.

    After the last round of updates it constantly hangs, I went back to Chrome, at least it remains stable.

    For insider builds ~ In Desktop mode, when select More "..." it shows menu scaled to mouse input but when clicked "Settings" it goes back to touch UI, big. Is it a bug or simply UI still not consistent?

    I switched from good old Opera 12 to edge somewhere arround christmas.
    Also tried Vivaldi, Opera and Firefox.

    I just hate how Firefox is rendering fonts on high-resolultion screens (e.g. on TV) and the tabs don't look like Windows 10.
    Opera ... is ok. But not touch-friendly on my Convertible. Also, any adblocker would block embedded videos from beeing played. Could not fix that.
    Vivaldi ... also not Touch-friendly and skales very terrible on 4k (devs know and promised to work on it ... have not checked back)

    So Edge ... just works. Has Cortana lookup, has a decent UI, is Touch-Friendly, and fast.

    I like Edge. Sure it has problems and some things are really not excusable, but on my Surface Book 2 scrolling is great, especially in tablet mode. Font rendering is also great. Chrome and Firefox suck when it comes to scrolling in tablet mode, and I haven't found any good extension to solve this. In desktop mode Firefox has at least good scrolling. Font rendering in bad in Chrome and good in Firefox. Overall, Edge has the better package for me and with the Redstone 4 update it will get even better. So, I put up with its issues because of the way Edge in general renders sites and uses scrolling. It is also the best option for 2 in 1 devices. Firefox and Chrome do not come even close when it comes to tablet support..

    I want to like Edge. It's good looking, it's light, i don't use any extensions really, the icon looks better pinned to my taskbar rather than FireFox. On paper it all looks great.... But the new FireFox is sooo much smoother to use. Animations load quicker, going from site to site is quicker. Everything just happens effortlessly. I had used edge since 10 came out and recently went back to FireFox after Edge kept hanging up on me. Yes, i don't like FF fonts. Yes I don't like how the icon looks in the taskbar (I'm OCD about my desktop), but it just works. Not 90% of the time or 99% of the time.... it works 100% off the time.

    I think, like with Cortana, MS needs to do something big with Edge or get off the pot. I can't imagine allocating resources to either of these projects to hold such small shares in their market. Sure, they provide data for other area's of the MS business model, but seems like it's a loss leader.

    I use edge on all my devices and love it. No problems here. The rewards are nice when using Bing, so I've been using Bing for some time now, even on my V20.

    I wanted to use Edge as main browser but it just wouldnt let me do it. It periodically keeps forgetting all my open tabs. Firefox just murders Edge. That said, i do use Edge without any issues on my Samsung S8+.

    been using Edge since its release. have no problems with it anywhere. I do find it's actually faster than Chrome, and friendlier on the battery.

    I think many of the people here are more like power users, and will nitpick at tiny little details. I use browsers much like the vast majority of the population does: rolling with the default settings, no extensions, no customisations.

    Load YouTube, start watching a video, minimize edge for a while, restore edge - the video is black but plays. You have to reload the page to watch the video.
