There are no original MSFT ISOs with a key for activation.

If human were capable of thinking, there would be nothing wrong.
Sorry, I'm not as smart as you guys. Then why does that package exist if it can be installed normally?
The new edge, is new, a separate normally installable program, this package/method is the old edge.
MicrosoftEdge17763mui add the old UWP Edge
the new Edge is Chromium-based, can be installed like any other separate browser
And it replaces the old Edge if installed (how cool is that?)
Both Edges are jokes to me
What browser do you recommend?
Chrome, although i personally use FlashPeak Slimjet
I haven't really heard anything about that browser other than it's built on Chromium like basically everything that's not Firefox. How does it differ from Chrome? What are its standout features? Aside from it not having Google integration like Chrome does.
I'm not really promoting Slimjet or have a list of pros and cons
all i remember that i tried it (after vivaldi, opera, chrome) back in 2016, and it furfilled my needs
Personally I prefer the old Edge over new Edge as it did have specific advancements in HTML5 specs over chromium or firefox. The reason I personally use Old Edge is because I think it is a superior PDF and EPUB reader with really good read-aloud support. It has dark mode and is not laggy.
too bad the "old" Edge or Spartan Edge isn't getting updated much lately
Yeah. Can't believe I regret it's demise, even if I did not use it as a main browser, it was a refreshing 2nd choice.
Makes no sense to drop it, and for Chrome-based virus from all things.
That is, until you think about telemetry and ads revenue.
Then everything makes perfect sense.
Microsoft wants more data. Google wants more data. Mega corporations collide together only to screw the customers.
Mozilla would not let them do that with a Gecko-based project.
Other open-source browsers are also using a protective license.
Hence the evil choice.
Thanks for the hint.
I did download the portable version and so far I like it. It has a bundle of settings and looks like a good alternative to FF.
Will keep it handy in the taskbar.
