    it is always gonna be work in progress just like firefox and chrome still buggy at times and plugins/third party add-ons to browsers completely complicate the situations; atleast is another option to have as i have multiple browsers but personal choice which is main one and the rest just for backup in emergency :)

    I rather use IE than EDGE, yes I know IE is in it's (Golden Years), But EDGE is no where near being ready for Primetime o_O, So I continue to use Chrome as default browser, just my 2cents:tasty:

    I am using Edge frequently.
    I cannot say that it is unusable or has extreme bugs.
    No, it is a stable app.

    From my limited perspective, Edge is where other browsers were 5-7 years ago ... maybe longer. Like I [rhetorically] asked in another thread, has there ever been a Microsoft product that wasn't buggy? Or any product for that matter.

    New apps are good, but only after they stop being new. (Katzenfreund)

    No, actually EDGE is a fair browser, especially now it supports paste-and-go of URL. The only bug I noticed was that it sometimes lost my tabs from the previous session despite my setting to keep them. But this was before the AU and I haven’t tested it since.

    Having said that, I prefer Opera.

    Opera, even the current one is light years better than any other browser except Vivaldi.

    But no matter if Opera or Vivaldi, is incredible that there is still people using IE,EDGE, or Chrome.

    I agree that old (Presto) Opera was way better than any other browser, not just Edge, but I find new Opera only moderately better than Edge.

    I haven’t tried Vivaldi, but heard good things about it.

    The speed dial and turbo functions alone would be sufficient to choose opera over that joke even if the rest was on par, and it isn't

    It's time to do it, especially now that Opera was sold to some (not so trustworthy) Chinese companies.

    It has crashed twice on me when trying to browse a Google Maps(Street View) -PETRA -The Rose Red City page after clicking on 'DISCOVER PETRA' button. There is no any other issue since those two crashes.

    People aren't doing themselves any favors by staying away from non-Microsoft browsers. My favorite is Firefox x64 DE, by a country mile, and it's far superior to Edge, imo. Edge will remain a work in progress for a long time to come. All browsers are "works in progress," it's just that some are a lot more mature than others. Running Win10x64 1607 has nothing to do with running Edge, actually...:biggrin:

    Edge stable in 1607? No way, at least with extensions. I added Adblock Plus, and it started complaining something about storage. Oddly it let me add the extension without logging in to Store. But now I did another test install on 1607 and it asks for MS account. Of course the extensions have to be UWP apps :p

    But I'm really not interested in Edge either way, going to stick with Firefox.

    Stay away from adblock plus even on a decent browser. Go for the plain adblock or (way better) uBlock origins

    I haven't been following the ad blocking scene, I have installed AdBlock Plus and left it at that. Although I noticed it started having 'allow some advertising' option that I disabled. Thanks for the tip, I've never heard of uBlock Origin.

    Addons, including adblockers, are always a potential source of trouble, if not immediate, then after a future update.

    Consequently, imho, built-in adblockers are preferable. An example is Opera, whose integrated adblocker never gave me any trouble.

    Opera (the today company, not the old good one founded by Jon von Tetzchner) is an AD company. I can't trust an adblock service provided by a competitor.

    Anyway uBlock works absolutely w/o a single glitch. (Either in Vivaldi or Opium)
