    Edge has seen its issues with freezing and closing throughout Windows 10's lifecycle. However, it has been, and always will be, my go-to browser for the system because it is nowhere near as resource-intensive as Firefox or Chrome.

    Chrome constantly closes after having tabs open, due to all of the extensions it loads upon start-up. Edge's extensions, by contrast, are lighter and easier to use. Edge is my go-to, and it will only get more stable as more builds come up.

    Plus: It doesn't steal and sell your information like Google does ;)
    GIven the headache I"ve had with Edge over time, including right now, I'm going choose FF now. I do not trust, nor admire, CHrome/google, especially google for their insane handling of gmail accounts. They are THE worst at getting back into your account if you can't verify sufficient information.

    Apple doesn't make it easy, can take two weeks but at least YOU GET back in ,and MS as much as I detect EDGE overall, they don't do such things to you either,,JUST google.

    SO no more android,no more chrome , FF all the way.

    I do still use EDGE for simple things, but lately the worst thing I experince is not being able to 'highlight' text on MSN, after several tries. I posted on answers.microsoft,,several times to try to get someones atttention, but after several days, its as if I" being IGNORED.

    MIcrosoft has fallen hard on their deskop,and IF I had enough money to get a 28" imac, I"d have been there a long time ago ; its that frustrating what MS is doing.

    THeir grasp is going to dwindle quickly if they dont reset and treat customers better than this, instead of ignoring, them and , apparently, let people code and UI design, whom clearly have no idea at all what they are doing!

    That edge uses fewer resources, sure, is great, but in the end if it can't handle, efficient , 'stable' highlighting of text, and not require near constant 'fixing', then its not worth my time,and MS needs to know!

    Edge works fine for me as a daily browser. It just needs to fix slow page rendering for some websites.

    In all fairness, and speaking as a web developer myself, the rendering problem isn't always Edge's fault. Some developers don't take the time they need to take in order to make sure websites work across browsers, particularly Firefox, Chrome, and Edge (the big three).

    I've developed quite a few websites in my career and ALL the websites I build work perfectly on Edge with no page rendering issues whatsoever. In fact, I use Edge as my daily driver in my development, but I also have Firefox and Chrome installed for testing.

    Not saying it doesn't have issues (it does) but it's not all the fault of the browser.

    Edge is a fickle beast.

    Check out this screen shot. Notice anything peculiar (Besides the massive battery use)?

    posts like these make me roll my eyes.... EDGE is the new 2018 app... I can says the same thing for chrome and FF...

    also those complaining about Edge not rendering web pages properly should really stop and think for a sec, only reason that is, is because web designers favor certain web apps over MS... I use Edge 99.9999% of the time and I don't have ANY problems... works fast and fluid but on certain web sites that you can blatently see the web devs favors certain web apps over MS are the ones not working properly.. the ones that are agnostic are the ones that work great in Edge... with that said, I USED to use IE all the time and that has gone to sh!t! always crashing always freazing not good any more... its practically useless! can't stand it any more... I'm forced to use chrome on my Win 7 machine... byaach!
