    The answer to "anybody else using Microsoft Edge?" by this point is such a conclusive "no" that even MS is giving up on it.

    If you want a better browser than Firefox, might I suggest Pale Moon?

    Was a huge firefox user for years, but Its become so awful and problematic I find myself with nothing better. I have tried pale moon but for the life of me I cannot get Ublock origin (the ad blocker plug-in I swear by) to work on pale moon.

    I am waiting for it to move out of Canary channel. I already have several fairly stable Chromium based browsers that I don't want to bother with a buggy implementation whose major innovation is having a MS logo.

    The older Edge using EdgeHTML was a nice browser just suffering limited take up from the decision to not offer it for Windows 7 and 8.

    I have been using Canary in production on Windows 7, 10, and MacOS. No problems.

    Question: you actually think Edge has an edge over Chrome?
