    Microsoft Edge is now Chromium-based, and the web hath frozen over. So, is the new Edge worth trying now, or is it all just a gimmick?

          That market share is probably all corporations for IE. Even two massive hospital networks around here (you know, the ones that are supposed to secure their information to the max) use IE exclusively. Last I saw, Walgreens also still uses IE for the browsing functions on their computers. Cheapness or a lack of support, I don't know, but you sure get a lot of time to think when you're waiting 5 minutes for google to open.

              This is unnerving. Can't Microsoft write software well enough to be competitive anymore?

                    when i do use windows 10 (vary rare).
                    i use edge to download chrome,
                    then i use chrome to download firefox

                    because i don't trust edge touching my Firefox installation.

                        Edge is utter rubbish never use edge Microsoft will drop it soon.
                        Google Chrome
                        Opera are the best browsers

                            I use this edge chromium thing and believe me what I got

                            1. no ram issues(open tabs whatever you want to)
                            2. better speed than chrome (youtube,fb,github,) sites load faster than chrome, ive tested side by side
                            3.it looks cooler than chrome
                            4.there is a dark mode for black lovers.
                            5.its under development so there are more things coming up, hold on

                            1.reading experience of pdf is worst
                            2.this version doesn't support all extensions from webstore.

                              I've used Edge since Windows 10 Insider Preview. I don't use extensions, don't see the point in them. Edge is tonnes faster and more stable than anything else.... providing its used on a HEALTHY computer.

                                What I want is a web browser that has the inking support of Edge (and Cortana support, yeah, I know), the web page compatibility of Chrome, and some of the features of a customized Firefox (such as Tile Tabs and Unload Tab). If Firefox ever comes out with inking support like Edge has, I might finally return to using it once again. Conversely, if Edge added Tile Tabs, I would probably continue using it.
                                Basically these below are a big deal, and unfortunately they are split across three different browsers currently:
                                Inking support (Edge)
                                Tile Tabs (Firefox)
                                Fast browser (Firefox/Chrome)
                                Web page compatibility (Depends...the ones I use at work need Chrome)

                                I use Edge at home usually and Chrome at work usually. If I needed to do research and compare text on different pages, then probably use Firefox for that.

                                                      What about xbox? Cause ege is fucking ass. It freezes all the time and youtube videos that I watched at one point keep randomly playing out of nowhere. Also every now and then i'd open it up and recently opened tabs get replaced with some tabs I had up months ago lol.

                                                          Its very cool. It actually lets you use both Microsoft and Chrome extensions all in one browser.

Video resolutions also better than Chrome, try to compare side to side to other browser to watch FHD video on Youtube and Edge better than any other browser. And the AdBlock extension work very good in Edge. IMO

                                                                                  And, I use Corsair products. I use the Corsair Scimitar Pro, the Corsair K55 RGB, and the Corsair Void Pro SE.

                                                                                      Yeah I had a feeling Linus is going downhill (like TomsHardware).
                                                                                      For example after the reviews of the DigitalStorm's Project-Spark, or the Asus' OLED portable display PQ22UC for around $1k (which turned out to be vaporware, & 5 times more expensive ... not even counting the fact that it took almost two years for PQ22UC to hit the market)
                                                                                      Anyway ... a video claiming that Edge is good finally proves it! :P
                                                                                      That makes me wonder about his advice from a month ago to invest in AMD stock ... for that full month AMD stock jumped with ... 23 cents, which is 0.00786% of its value.
                                                                                      Seems like using my local astrologist opinion for tech related news would be more accurate than Linus' one :P
