    Edge stalls/ MS should of fixed this by Now?

    If that problem ever really existed it must have been fixed long ago because I don't have that problem with Microsoft Edge.

    15 MB/s is a pretty slow connection these days. Perhaps you live in a part of the country that is under-served by the big broadband carriers, which is shameful. For the exorbitant prices they charge, the broadband carriers can afford to provide everyone
    with high-speed internet.

    A way to improve your internet experience is to block bandwidth-sucking ads. There are ad blocking extensions for all the major web browsers, including Microsoft Edge.

    There's a Troubleshooting Tool you can use in your Windows 10 system. This solution have worked according to some Edge users who have experience the same issue.

    1. Go to Control Panel.

    2. Click on System and Security.

    3. Select Security and Maintenance.

    Up to you if you want to switch or try Edge.
    I don't use it because there's always something wrong with it on every new Build!
    Edge isn't up to par yet!
    (But that's just me!) *Wink

    I have it as my default browser...and is working OK. I have tried both Chrome and Firefox and I didn't see any major advantages over Edge.
    As all browsers, it has its ups and downs, but overall is fast and reliable and definitely needs improvement in some areas. But for your needs, as described, it will be just fine!

    I would just give it a go for a period and see if you like it.

    Use Edge if you use Microsoft products and services.
    Use Chrome if you use Google products and services.
    Use Firefox if you're an oddball.

    MS Edge .. Should i Switch?

    Hmm, any recommendations for extensions to use in Edge?

    I think more users will switch to Edge when the Spring Creators Update is released..
    Because then there will be new features available in Edge and more Fluent-design..

    Should i switch orn't, because i'm afraid that Edge will fail in the Future but i'm not sure... because not so many People uses Edge as there daily-to-go Browser..

    And iknow MS needs an Browser in there OS​.. right?

    Hmm good Explained
    I use an Android Phone: (Only use Chrome on my Android phone, and Sometimes Google maps thats all and even use Youtube alot..)
    and i use MS Products: (Hotmail, OneDrive, Powerpoint, Windows 10)

    So thats a good question, can you help me to Decide?

    You write like it's a commitment, just test both. *really Maybe start with Chrome now and then test Edge for a month once the update is out? If you use more Microsoft services than Google then maybe Edge is better for you,? but only you can decide this. I don't use extensions so I can't help you there. I use Edge as default because it came with the OS. I don't like downloading a bunch of programs on my PC, I like it clean, yea. *Cool

    I've decided to run Edge as my main Browser.. because Chrome is playing nasty again they scan all your files on your PC with there nasty chrome clean up tool, and they send everything back to Google even if you opt-out (I think)

    Doesn't the Chrome Clean Up Tool have to be downloaded and activated ?

  15. Ph0werd Win User
    Nope, they have built it in into Chrome.. and they scan your documents, settings, processes of your pc and other things twice a week.. the scan takes 2-10 minutes to complete.. :/ but i dont trust it, this is a new way for Google to collect your data, and they will benefit from it.. so Google can make big moneys again .... i dont trust it
