When I first was introduced to the new Internet Edge it was a good program and was a happy replacement for Internet Explorer. But recently Microsoft has done some sort of updates to this program and now it stinks. Here is what I find now using it…. Edge is very slow to load. Edge locks up all the time and I continue to get some messages that the web page isn’t responding. When you follow a link using Edge – the webpage won’t load correctly and most of the time I get a blank page. How you had major issues with the new Windows 10 Edge? I have stopped using it completely and now only use Chrome. Works a lot better if you ask me Image source - flickr.com

I don't like windows 10 in general. I prefer Windoes 7 if I must use Windows. But I rather write with a feather pen and paper. I don't know INternet Explorer but Edge does not sound that temping.

At first it was great. But in the last week it stinks. I hope they fix the bugs or back out the update they did to improve it a little more. It's suspose to be more like what mac uses for searching the Internet.

@poehere Yes win 10 is still a bit new. It's normal to have some bugs. Hope they fix it soon! I was a bit spooked when I found out Win 10 could spy on me. That alone scared me off.

Yes, it really seems to drag on my machine. I use Chrome as my main browser, and have a couple tabs open in Edge.

I only use Edge now for a few things but mainly I use Chrome. It works so much better in Windows 10 now.

I had windows ten waiting and asking quite a bit if I was ready to install it. My computer guy was going to put it on this week, but I'd need to find all my license codes for all my programs and possibly even find the programs themselves, which I've no idea where they all are. He doesn't recommend Edge yet, but I don't know why. I'll still use chrome once I have it, and firefox when needed. Maybe he's heard about the bugs or glitches with that browser. I'll find out eventually why he doesn't install that too.

No this isn't true you don't need all your programs or keys. When you update all is the same as you see it now. The upgrade keeps your configuration and your programs and files. There's no need to have this. What he can do is make a backup of your hard drive to another drive using the control panel backup and restore function. So if you have issues you can easily reinstall your old configuration. I have upgraded over 150 computers so far here on the islands and never once did I have an issue or need any of this. I'm not sure why he has asked you for this at all.

Thanks for the idea of YouTube but basically I don't need it. I work with Microsoft as an insider. What that means is it's up to me to find the bugs and report them and tell them what works and doesn't. I am telling here that they did an update to Edge which was very nice and worked good and now it stinks.
