    Printing only highlighted selection Windows10 Edge

    What a CROCK OF ****. Following the Microsoft path of eliminating or burying features that are actually helpful.

    Shame on Microsoft. They expect to gain market share doing this??

    nokia and microsft partnership

    This is all part of Microsoft's plan to gain control of Nokia. The first step was to plant Stephen Elop at Nokia. The second step is this agreement between the two companies. Sometime within the next few years Microsoft will take over Nokia and own it completely.
    Then Microsoft will close the company down. I have seen this happen time after time here in Australia. It's all about getting rid of your competition for market share. And as we know Microsoft's market share in the mobile phone market is abysmal

    Hi there.

    Until people like SKY TV can make SKY GO work on it (SKY is still using Silverlight) loads of people will have to stick with IE whatever the drawbacks are. (Actually SKY TV has only just about heard of Windows 7 never mind W10 !!! although it does work on W10).

    Perhaps Ms should have got more of these people involved from the start and make a Browser that actually can do things like using these online TV streaming services even if they do have cruddy DRM (Silverlight). Ms could work with these people so they could use better security systems instead of having to support basically two browsers going in opposite directions.

    One can use Chrome of course (that's how SKY GO works on Android devices) but I don't really want Chrome on a Windows PC.

    Incidentally any Linux users on these boards who have managed to get SKY GO to work on it -- should in theory be capable as Android itself is only another Linux distro so I suppose the trick is to get the security system from Chrome on Android into your Linux box.

    Cheers

  9. Not sure how you check, but are you sure it is using Silverlight and not the HTML5 player?

    I had to install Silverlight to get Netflix to run on any browser.

  11. Interesting, will have to try it

    Get Silverlight | Microsoft Silverlight

    according to MS
    *** Silverlight is not available in the Microsoft Edge browser, but is supported in Internet Explorer.

  13. Microsoft Edge gains a little bit of market share in February

    Install as an add on for Edge or just install on your PC?

    According to Netflix, Edge on Windows 10 only uses HTML5

  14. I have absolutely no reason to switch from Chrome. I bet most people feel the same way. They need to give Edge some cool & unique features if they want people to migrate from Chrome or Firefox.

    I agree. Even "as good as" doesn't offer sufficient incentive to change. And Edge is still a good distance away from that point.
