  3. Settings won't sync in Windows 10

    Oh how I know what you are talking about. Now with this new Bullshit version of Windows they are trying to push you to use Edge by slowing down IE. I have a Mac running now and it is simple amazing how much faster and reliable it is over this crap that
    Microsoft is pushing. We are no more than another customer that has wasted our money to get into the control machine that Microsoft has engineered. Same with Facebook. They want to control your life and push bullshit there also. I ended my term with Facebook
    and now I am in the process of ending it with Microsoft

    Problem opening website in Microsoft Edge

    Change the default search engine in Microsoft Edge

    Keeping Bing as your default search engine provides an enhanced search experience in Microsoft Edge, including direct links to Windows 10 apps, more relevant suggestions from Cortana, and instant answers to questions about Windows 10.

    You can change the default search engine to any site that uses OpenSearch technology.

    In Microsoft Edge, first go to the website of the search engine you want.

    Then, select More actions (...) > Settings, scroll down, select View advanced settings, scroll down again, and then select Change search engine.

    Select your search engine's website in the list, and then select Set as default.

    If you don't see your search engine in the list, make sure that you've visited the search engine's website in Microsoft Edge, and that your search engine uses OpenSearch technology.

  5. I would honestly give Edge a trial of a week or two to see if I liked it..... if the blasted thing would let me make pages dark with light text. I am able to do this in both FFox and Chrome. If they were really serious about their browser they would let us theme it. I mean even the Mail app in Windows 10 has a dark theme to a point.

    Edge will not get love unless it gets regular updates like Others (moving Edge to Store and releasing updates for any windows 10 pcs)

    if Microsoft keeps Edge as it's now (releasing updates only via Windows feature updates), it'll be another IE like app forever

    I hope they leave a few people for bug & security fixes.
    The sport app live tile is broken with the last update.
    Just displays a static image now - no live scores etc.

    Since the last feature update (1709) Edge receives updates regularly now. I see mine has been updated yesterday to .371.

  11. Edge has really come a long way since its launch. The addition of extensions in the Store is what really made it usable. I really don't mind Edge, but the main thing that keeps me from using it as my main browser is how it behaves while streaming audio. When I'm streaming from Spotify or Pandora and I minimize the browser, it kills the audio. It also doesn't prevent my laptop from sleeping while streaming the way that other browsers do. It's really annoying because I like to stream music from my laptop in the background while I do other things.That's why I'm using with Opera currently. It has a battery saver feature and a Chromium code base so it is as solid as Chrome but uses less resources and has a few nifty features of its own. I will hand it to Microsoft though, when I tried Edge recently their claims about increased battery life are true. While using Edge, my laptop seemed to go a bit longer between charges. I do hope that Microsoft's push for Edge usage doesn't affect other apps, but I also wouldn't mind if Edge got a few more improvements under the hood.

    Which is best for security & supportability - Edge, Chrome or another choice?

    Hi All,
    I didn't realize the Avast Secure Browser mentioned in this post had a vpn built-in, if that's the case it makes it more interesting. I know the opera browser also has a vpn built-in.
