    I have been using it on my main machine (Win7) for a while now since Firefox seems to hog more resources. Pretty sure I had posted a thread about it when MS started releasing it as a test (Canary version updated weekly).
    What I collect: 68K/Early PPC Mac, DOS/Win 3.1 era machines, Amiga/ST, C64/128
    Nubus/ISA/VLB/MCA/EISA cards of all types
    Boxed apps and games for the above systems
    Analog video capture cards/software and complete systems

    Firefox has had severe problems with memory leaks for years, I had to finally abandon it because I got tired of single tabs eating up 4+ GB of memory if left open for more than a few hours.

    I really appreciate that I can have 200+ tabs open in Chrome for over a week and performance doesn't suffer much. If the new Edge can't do this I think I'll need to keep using Chrome.

    Canary is the version I use on my computers and Dev is the version in production machines.

    LOL, I'm sorry if I've offended anyone. I don't really have the time to follow or analyse different browsers. They're a tool for me.
