    I bought Surface Go (8GB/128GB) and I know the Edge is well optimized but what are the others that you recommend? Chrome does not run very good on it.

    Try Firefox. I started with Edge but ran into problems on some of the sites I visit and problems syncing bookmarks. I've been using Firefox for a while now and it works great (though Firefox is more taxing on the battery). I also have Chrome installed but I only use it for work.

    This is my issue with Surface Go, the battery leaving quickly.
    I stopped using Chrome because of this.

    I'm trying to keep my GO in S mode, so I'm sticking with Edge, which is a pain; it's not syncing my favourites/history etc with my laptop. And trying to do my report cards (i'm a teacher) the other day: Edge does not display my grades/comments with the web based student management system we use, so I had to wait till I had my laptop to finish (I use Chrome on my laptop, because it displays all the drop down menues correctly, and my SmartBoard interactive Whiteboard does not work properly with Edge).

    Opera is really good but missing the touch gestures, so bad.

    You might just have to wait until the chromium based Edge is released soon.

    But in the meantime it is not a bad idea to step out of a mode and just limit using exe based programs to the chrome browser.

    Unfortunately by opting out of S Mode you will get hit with a battery life penalty. It’s noticeable.
