Title: Edge (New version)
Post by: Den on July 28, 2019, 16:27
I decided to try the New version of Edge today and downloaded it from the Microsoft site.

First impressions are , very very fast indeed. It will take a bit to get used to the new layout but very impressed so far.

Will report back as I get used to it.

I have a nervous disposition so I try to avoid Microsoft products.   :o:

So far so good. It's really nice to use and very fast indeed.

I like the layout far more than Edge, IE or Chrome and so far I can not find anything to dislike.   ;D

Today Microsoft released the Beta version of Edge which they say is even more stable than the versions released up to now.

I downloaded it and it seems really nice indeed.  :D

Edge is now in it's final stages and on the next update is the finished version.

I still can't find anything to dislike and would urge everyone to start using it over the next few weeks. If you like Chrome you will love Edge.  :D

"Love" and "Microsoft" don't sit happily in the same sentence Den.  The word "Fear" fits better.   :facepalm:

Micro$oft never do a 'finished' version of anything!  If they finally get Edge working, they'll let you have it for a while, then you'll be involuntarily testing the next version.   ::)

Have you tried the new version of Edge yet Simon or are you just assuming it's not very good?

I have been using since July and have had no problems at all. The version out now is more or less the finished product and it's so fast and clean with no glitches.  ;D

I have tried it, Den, but admittedly not for any length of time. Occasionally a website won't open in my usual browser so I use Edge as an alternative.  However, I often find that Edge doesn't display websites correctly, so I've yet to be convinced that it's worth switching to, and I have no real desire to change from my current browser.

I am not asking you to try Edge I want you to try the New Version which is based on Chrome. It's in the final beta stage and will replace Edge on January 15th 2020. :D

It's a huge coincidence that both Edge users subscribe to this forum.   ;D

The new Edge is completely different to the one released. I have been using the Beta version for ages and it just keeps getting better and better.

Either download the Beta version now or wait until January 15th 2020 and it will be offered by Microsoft to all.  8-)
