    Not only Firefox is having the issue of crashing on this build also Google Chrome. Sometimes it freezes and asks to kill the task. Indeed, I am beginning to find it annoying when it repeatedly happens opening more than a tab.

    It's surprising that the tin foil hat brigade is not up in arms claiming that MS is deliberately sabotaging Chrome and Firefox running on Windows 10.
    That being said, I like Edge and once some serious plugins are up and running, I might ditch Chrome.

    I don't really know if Microsoft is to blame for all this. Google and Firefox have not been listening to people regarding changes coming to Windows 10 which might affect them in the future. At least, there is repeated notice by Microsoft that Windows 10 is going to be a continuously upgradable operating system. It is time those two companies developing browsers listen to what people are saying about issues emanating from their products in Insider Preview( Windows 10 evaluating OS).

    You'd expect that yea, but no can't say I imagine MS doing it deliberately.

    Every FireFox update litterally requires you to either update or re-install flash because its seen as "unsafe" by FF. Now as a developer I am glad support for flash is ending but as a end user its annoying as hell having to re-enable it every update. We all know flash has security issues at this point in time but now its Mozilla deliberately making it annoying for the end user.

    As for chrome, it runs like s**t on android as well due to its excessive memory demand. And lets not forget the "lets instance everything you do in chrome in seperate processes" I open up 2 tabs in chrome yet I already got 5 chrome processes because it needs to run every tab & plugin in seperate tasks.

    All those issues are unrelated to MS.


    Given how Spartan started during the first previews and grew out into Edge, aslong as they keep it simple and clean and add the extensions possibility for it it could become 1 of the better browsers.

    And no problem with Firefox here.

    Maybe it's a bad reaction with certain extensions.

    Edge is still a year out from being usable, I'm guessing (RS2). It needs a whole lot more than extensions, and you just know that even those are going to be rudimentary.

    Should power users expect much more from Edge? After all, it's a metro app, and I don't know of a single one of those that's made for power-users. They're simplistic mobile apps writ large.

    Yes, I am. The README note explains how to run them on Preview builds.

    But you did have a choice but you did not opt for minding your own business? :clap:
