The poll was on a site named windowscentral, people here are fans and very informed about this product. Some people (majority) who use androids and iphones and they dont know nothing about upcoming changes to windows they just see oh a new browser from microsoft with E on it I bet it will suck as much as internet explorer. I dont think that Edge is ruining its reputation, that is "fine" to some point with me. But giving it almost the same logo is risky.
It's just as possible that this site's users are disproportionately critical. There have been huge outcries here over silly **** about how much the new WP10 looks like Android in certain respects, which will not necessarily play the same way in the wider market which happens to like Android best of all mobile OSs.
You're assuming that "they" ("they" being "the computer-using world", btw) think Edge sucks, or that they already think IE sucks. I don't use IE right now, but not because "it sucks". I'd be embarrassed to be so childishly hateful. I don't use it because Chrome has extensions that I like, so I use that instead. IE's basically good, besides that.

And you put on a new badge on, and what changes in that opinion?
