Microsoft Edge is now Chromium-based, and the web hath frozen over. So, is the new Edge worth trying now, or is it all just a gimmick?

    Hey, everybody! Check out the brand new CryptoTab browser! You just use it like a regular browser (watch IT-my, browse websites or social media networks, etc.) and earn income in BTC at the same time thanks to its built-in mining algorithm! get.cryptobrowser.site/9037471

    I wasn't even aware browser performance was really a thing (outside of using ALL THE RAM). I suppose when 5mbps is a "good" internet speed for my area the browser doesn't make much of a difference. Chrome is just what I'm used to. But I do use edge to read PDF's, just because I sorta like having them separate from my web tabs and I haven't felt the need to change it to a different default.

    There is 1 thing wrong with this. Microsoft Edge Chromium Based will take about 1 - 15% more CPU Use than your average Firefox or Chrome browser.

    I'm not sold yet on edge but at least they are trying. Also I primarily use chrome for IT-my. I've enjoyed the performance of Firefox on everything else except Google products.

    I prefer current Edge over Adware but if the new Edge is going to keep such a bad layout I'll just start using a rock for my internet. Why I stuck with IE, it looked like something you should actually be using when everything else I knew looked like a really cheap version of a knock-off. For as little as I do but as often as I do it I don't need performance to be the best, I need something that is user-friendly and organized.

    To be honest, the only reason I use Edge is for Netflix, because for some bullshit reason Netflix doesn't 1080p on chrome.

      Somebody that wants an UI that is easier on the eyes with useful features in places you can find them... but since it comes with Win10 It's not like people have to go out of their way for it.

    Loving the new Edge because of how easy it is to transition from mobile to desktop and vice-versa. It has all the benefits of Chrome (extensions) with slightly different UI. The UI admittedly could use some fleshing out, but I've not found a single instance where I miss Chrome. I've tried and retried Firefox and could just never get into it.

    Edge on macOS... yea right, because after my desperation to escape Windows 10 (which will be unable to avoid in the long term with the Windows 7 death) iam just waiting for Microsoft Software (i bet with forced auto-update) to run on my machine again :^) No seriously i think its wasted resources for Microsoft. Looking at the low market share of macos compared to windows, almost every mac user must (for whatever reason) switch to Edge in order to make the investment worth it. Which is harder on macOS in the beginning, because Edge has not only to compete with the big opponent Chrome and the secondary opponents Firefox and Opera, but additionally with Safari (which is widely used on Apple devices). I just don't see how this effort will ever be worth it.

  • ShibsTale

    But the biggest question is... will i switch to Edge

  • Will2Win

    ive always used edge, as soon as it came out.... it does its job, its built in, and I don't see the point installing chrome or other browsers when I have a browser already there.... And now that edge is becoming chromium I see even more of no points changing... personal preference but they all do the same thing in the end

    Firefox v3.0 was the best of browser technology we have and will ever see. new browsers barely even handle adobe flash and gifs properly... tbh all of HTML5 and after suck ass, if your browser isn't HTML3 and 4 backwards compatible #uninstallthatshit

    I tried that edge dev built on chromium. Honestly the experience was not so good. I did not like it. Rater i use vanilla edge, i removed chrome. Because chrome uses a lot of memory and download speed is very slow. But the edge vanilla is different. The download speed is 2x higher than chrome. I think it took me a lot of time to realise the best browser.

    I use Firefox as my daily. There is a reason that the Tor Browser uses it. So i use it for pretty much everything besides things like Netflix, Hulu etc. I use those in Chrome, because my Firefox install has a lot of privacy add ons that break those sites from working.

    My opinion on this: Safari is the best browser ever... on macOS. Chrome is the best browser ever... on Windows. Firefox is ... "meh" browser... on Ubuntu. (It's default, soooo I'll take it)

      Chrome is not the best browser on any device. At least if you care about your personal data. Sorry but its funny how so many people (rightfully) complain about the data collection of Windows 10 while completely ignoring the stuff chrome does. Even with Adblock and some tracking-blocker you will never be truly "anonymous" in Chrome.

    I wont use chrome or edge simply because google has proven time and time again they can't be trusted with private data. I was using Firefox forever but it recently started going so slow I couldnt handle it. I've been trying out Puffin and it's way faster but I'm not sure if I'm making the switch or not yet.

  • whichwitch

    I use edge because apparently Firefox and Chrome no longer display PDFs properly....I need it for certain work activities...
