Thread: Anybody tried the new MS Edge?

  1. #1

    Default Anybody tried the new MS Edge?

    It's the Chromium Edge browser and it's not just for Windows 10 any more. It runs on Windows 7 and 8 as well. I've been using it on 7 and it seems quite good and fast. I normally use Chrome but this has me thinking. I'm going to use it for a while and see how it compares (to Chrome) but so far it passes the sniff test.

    I can't imagine why you wouldn't just use Chromium. Chrome's UI is crap, but it's not as crap as Edge's.

    So, you've tried the Chromium-based Edge?

    I've briefly experienced Edge while installing and configuring a NOS Lenovo ThinkCentre M81 which has Windows 10 Enterprise pre-installed. It seems much as IE11 or later (if there is such a thing). I use FireFox 72 as my browser of choice, purely for the anti-tracking and tab & password synch feature, as I have multiple laptops and tower systems in use.

    The Chromium based Edge wouldn't be in an OEM image on an M81.

    Not only have I used it; I've deployed the enterprise preview through my institution so its available to 60 employees and no complaints. It also gives me an opportunity to provide feedback and I feel the Insider team is more open to acting on feedback than Google would be.

    What he said.

    It's a Chrome clone; nothing like IE.

    It hasn't even reached general distribution yet!
