    I don't get it... How the hell could MS try to make Edge a better-than-IE browser and end up with something a hell of a lot slower, worse, and settings-limited browser?

    Every time I click any site link, Edge browser stalls for good 2-3 seconds before loading that page. Neither IE nor Chrome or Firefox do any of that. Is there a way to fix that 2-3 second delay in Edge?

    Slower, nah but, buggy, YES. Random closes, crashes, sites not working right is VERY common for me (even reset edge back to factory a few times), I gave up on it...what a POS browser at this stage (Not in the Preview program on the machine I am using it on). I removed all Edge shortcuts, set IE 11 as default browser and installed Firefox as a backup...

    Could not be happier...

    In browser test Edge beats IE, and only marginal the HTML 5.

    Here is another bench test from a different site.

    Peacekeeper
    On the Dell XPS 13, the highest score was obtained by Chrome: 3,798, being followed by Edge with 2,444 points and IE scored 2,357.
    On the Microsoft Surface 3 we have the same order: Chrome with 1,455, Edge with 819 points and IE with 818 points.

    Octane
    On the Dell XPS 13, IE performed poorly again, having almost half the score of Chrome, meaning that it obtained 12,190 compared to 24,153, while Edge was pretty close to Chrome, scoring 23,664.
    Finally, on the Microsoft Surface 3, Edge returned in force with a score of 8,790, being closely followed by Chrome with a score of 8,178, while IE disappointed again with its score of 4,669.

    It lacks many resources but it's not slow in my machine. Very fast with no delays.

    All the add-ons are great. Blocking all the garbage makes it snappy and all the DL tools make it a good choice.

    I use Edge only sparingly. It looks like it will be a nice browser once they get some of the quirks corrected. I pinned IE11 to the taskbar and find myself using it more than Edge.

    I installed AdGuard and IE11 seems to be running fine.

    Edge is not bad but is not complete yet and though I am a old fan of Firefox, I noticed that Firefox 41.0.2 is now become more heavy on resources such as memory and CPU. While parsing certain sites it becomes heavy on CPU which means it still needs fixes for running smooth on Windows 10.

    Though Edge is quite lite but No Add-on available and does not open certain sites unless you retry a few times.

    If M$ improves Edge it will surely be a good browser in future. Let's hope so.;)

    Sounds early Midori-esque! Like early versions of Midori...

    Unrelated, but I'm having a similar kind of issue, probably because of VTel's DNS server.
    PaleMoon made me retry a few times for some web sites, because it insisted the domain name didn't contain a server IP..... :mad:

    Firefox for the win.

    They've finally made it fast and it uses virtually no resources. Of course, they're also now using the same engine as chrome and moved away from addon to extensions. :p

    Edge is needed to download a proper browser of your choosing then best forgotten about. It's a browser for touch devices and awful for the desktop.

    The hideously large text and spacings in Settings menu prove it.

    Internet Explorer = A tool used to download a better browser

    Edge = A modern app used to download a better browser

    This is the legacy that is Microsoft :p

    Firefox isn't using the same engine as chrome, at all

    Anyway the only browser I care since January is Vivaldi.

    Thanks God Jon von Tetzchner (Opera's dad) is back, and then everything else looks stone age, as usual.
