While an improvement over IE, it still lacks a lot of features compared to IE, or the other mature browsers such as Chrome or Firefox. Edge is only a couple of years old, and needs to mature before it can really compete with features from Google or Mozilla.
With that said, apparently Edge uses less system resources and battery power compared to Chrome or FF, as it's been integrated into Windows (I said apparently, because I use Chrome on my Surface, and W10 keeps nagging me about how much better Edge is at saving me battery). It does have a nifty feature called Reading View, which essentially strips the webpage back to basics, stripping most formatting out of it, and adverts, giving you a simple, easy to view page, that requires less resources to run. I don't believe FF or Chrome have a feature like that.
But that's really about it as Pros in my opinion. It's still an immature app, that needs to grow more, which it will in time.
At the end of the day, it's which browsing experience you prefer. Chrome is good if you want the total Google experience, including Google tracking you. Firefox is that alternate browser, that's been around for years, trusted, and very mature. But I found Firefox was a bit a resource hog, even on a powerful machine, so I switched to Chrome and found it less resource heavy...
Try FF, Edge, and Chrome out, and see which you prefer. Some people prefer Volkswagen, some people prefer GM.
I started having so many problems with Microsoft Edge that I deleted it from my computer. I may try downloading it again, since your suggestions indicate it is still a viable browser. Have other readers had problems with Edge failure? Are there any advantages to Edge versus other browsers, or should I just move on? Thank you for the great work, the advice and recommendation from your readers have helped me solve many problems and given me valuable insights over the years!
