Question: IE11 vs. Edge

Does anyone know of a good source that explains the difference between IE11 and Edge? Pretty much all I've gathered is that Edge isn't as compatible with as many web-sites as IE11. Why the introduction of a new browser? Why isn't it more compatible?

Answer:IE11 vs. Edge

Browser Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 (Windows 10)

IE has become a failure and MS is trying to start over with a new browser, Edge. This is a ground up design of a new browser and it's looking good right now for a browser that's only about a year old. I've been using it for some time and it's been a good experience for me at least.

edge seems massively dumbed down, very bare options configuration compared to IE11.

From what I can see all of the following are missing.

No options to toggle tls 1.1 1.0 1.2 etc.
No options to toggle gpu acceleration
No options to set file cache location (I like to use ram disk)
No security zones
No tracking protection lists
No addons
No advanced cookie settings
No per domain settings
No options to adjust certificate verification
No options to adjust UTF-8 and IDN
No toggle for crash protection
No tab options

Basically edge feels like a mobile orientated app, as it uses the "modern" interface.

Is there a reason to use edge instead of IE11? aside from future proofing as I am assuming IE11 at some point will be obsoleted by Microsoft.

Answer:is it me or is ie11 better than edge?

Edge is still very early in it's development cycle.. give it time and it will get much better.

Oh and I'm using it right now to post here and I like it.. very fast and clean.

I am having problems on my laptop using things like Cortana across user accounts. The wheel spins and spins when I click on Cortana. I think the problem stems from the fact edge and IE11 cannot load outlook.com or go into things like account settings. It's only this causing the issue, all other sites work apart from these critical MS sites. I've tried changing DNS settings to alternates like google but nothing works to fix this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated? On my other desktop PC I have no issues. All language settings and packs are correctly set as UK. Am at a total loss. I tried a restore point but that was no better. I've had this issue crop up intermittently ever since getting the laptop. Sometimes it works ok but after a while the issue will re-occur without rhyme or reason. I notice under family setitngs 'Can't connect to family settings, your user data may not be upto date' sometimes comes up too. It's as if the laptop is having trouble connecting to MS server some of the time

Answer:Outlook.com unreachable via edge and IE11

The machine seems to be having real problems signing into MS. For example if I launch films and TV I see lower left 'Can't sign in'. I think there is something amiss logging into the MS account causing all the issues. Store is slow and unable to update apps, always an error message after ages of acquiring license. I don't really want to have to try and create a new user acc given everything I have setup/installed

Is there a way of signing out of the MS account and signing back in because something is seriously screwed up

Cheers

Has anyone figured a way to turn this crap off?

Yes, I know that Edge is Microsoft's "preferred" browser. No, I'm not interested. I need IE for work purposes because of legacy ActiveX components, so that annoying icon does no good.

I'm trying to get the new build ready for work on our domain, but considering all our employees heavily use IE every day, this is going to get on everybody's nerves and fast!

I tried copying the iexplore.exe from Anniversary Update (1607) to 1703 VM, and got an error about a missing ordinal in the EXE. So I'm thinking they added it that way - not seeing any settings, GPOs, or any other way to turn it off.

Even better when you're logged in as the local Administrator account which cannot run Edge or any other Modern apps but the stupid icon still shows up and is completely useless

Hi Folks
Be extra careful currently as there is STILL a problem in security with IE11 and Edge which can allow "unscrupulous" users to hijack your browser / do other nasty things - and currently NO A/V software can protect against this.

BE VERY CAREFUL if using IE11 / EDGE until Ms applies the patch. DO NOT RELY SOLEY ON YOUR A/V SOFTWARE - this won't protect you in this case. People are often lulled into a false sense of security after installing some extra A/V software -- this actually makes them MORE likely to fall into traps than people who only have the base WD stuff installed but browse carefully. !!!

Answer:Running windows 10 AEd . confused over IE11 and EDGE

Windows 10 comes with both IE11 and Edge built in. Edge is Microsoft's recommended browser and the one where all future development will concentrate. But the business world would throw up their hand in horror if IE was removed - many bespoke company Intranet applications will only work with IE because only IE can run Microsoft ActiveX controls. Indeed Microsoft's own Update Catalog website will only work with IE for the same reason.

You have IE if you really need it but MS don't really want you to use it, so it's hidden away on an infrequently visited part of the All Apps list. It's to be found under 'Windows Accessories'. The only other place you can find it is (ironically) in Edge. Open any webpage, click on the 'three dots' icon at the top right and one of the items in the menu that appears is 'Open with Internet Explorer'. However you get to it, once running you can pin it to the taskbar.

But finding IE isn't necessarily going to help you fix Edge's video problems, the settings you need to change may be in Edge, not IE. It's not clear what you mean by 10 A.Ed. Can you type Winver in the search box next to Start and run it. To be of more help we need to know the full set of numbers shown there for the version and OS build.

What I can tell you is that for my version 1607 (OS Build 14393.187) Edge has no such problems showing videos from MSN.

Hi there

While Silverlight is as everybody knows RUBBISH it IS a requirement for watching SKY GO on Windows. Sky GO on Android doesn't use it so It must be possible for Ms to have some other method of protecting DRM material.

So (and SKY GO is used by loads of SKY customers --particularly for Sport and Movies) as EDGE which (intentionally) doesn't support Silverlight people will have to keep IE11 for the foreseeable future - unless one wants to use CHROME - which I don't really like --YMMV on this one of course.

If Ms wants people to switch as quick as possible to EDGE they need to get current applications to work with it.

At least though SKY GO works on W10 !!.

(For those who don't know what SKY GO is - it's the service from the U.K Satellite Broadcaster SKY that people can use to stream programs on to their tablets, computers and phones - quite a good service BTW if you have SKY TV.

Good on some Rail services too in UK where trains have fast Wi-Fi available !!!

Answer:Problems Importing Favorites into Edge from IE11

Well, you didn't really tell us what problems you were having with performing the import.

So, let's skip the diagnosis and jump right to an alternative approach...

You might consider using a 3rd-party application called EdgeManage to see if you have better luck with performing an import operation from Internet Explorer.

Hello,

I am unable to access Sign in to your Microsoft account on my desktop computer running Windows 10 on a home Ethernet network using Edge and IE11. I am connected to the Internet through a Fritz!Box 7490 DSL connection.

I originally tried to solve this problem as a network issue - and it may still turn out to be one - but since I am able to log in to my live.com account using Google Chrome on this computer and from Linux and OS X machines on the network, I am now looking at the possibility that it is some setting shared by Edge and IE11 that is causing my problem.

A secondary effect of this problem is that I am unable to activate Office 365 products, because once I enter my account email address, the activation process wants to take me to live.com to confirm my subscription.

I have seen a number of posts on this and other sites about the "Hmm..." messages, and that's the message I am shown when I try to access login.live.com. Since, in all of the other posts, the issue was a complete inability of Edge to access the sites, this seems to me to be something different. Thus, I started a new thread rather than add to one of the others.

I will be grateful for any and all suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Cheers,

Yesterday I was forced to reboot my computer as MS installed some Windows Updates. After the reboot I can no longer access google.com's main page and some other https site like my companies Citrix Storefront login page. These all worked before the forced update. There were 2 updates installed KB3142588 and KB3140768. I uninstalled the KB3142588 and rebooted and everything worked again. Later in the day again MS installed something and forced me to reboot. After the reboot, the same problem came back. Funny thing now, is that those 2 updates are no longer there and were replaced by others. One of them I could uninstall and the other I cannot. I uninstalled the one (didn't write done the KB#) and rebooted and still the same problem. It only really seems to be issues with some https sites. I can't believe that there is a problem with googles certificate.

I get a "There is a problem with this website's security certificate". The security certificate presented by this website is not secure. Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept and data you send to the server.

I cannot just accept the cert nor can I look at it like I could in Windows 7.

Hi there

What a DOGS DINNER of a mess -- SKY GO is still using Silverlight for DRM - however it's deprecated in Windows so sooner or later IE11 won't work with it. Edge of course doesn't work with it, and the non Ms browsers seem randomly to work or not work.

This is NOT an Ms problem though -- surely SKY could use similar DRM / Copyright protection to NETFLIX etc - since the ANDROID application works without any problem whatsoever they must be using something other than Silverlight.

I only suspect that SKY would rather get people to sign up to their SKY Q service -- it's fine but not very portable if you want to watch on a laptop instead of on a small tablet or smart phone.

If Ms would RETIRE Silverlight completely then SKY would be forced to fix SKY GO for their customers !!!!

I suppose the words Customer and Service should probably be removed from the English Language or relegated tp a History archive as it seems with pretty well ANY service one subscribes to there is just about ZERO customer service available any more.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...arch/?c2=12905

compatibility issues are always on the agenda, given that rs3 builds are going deeper into underlying code
I suspect we may see improvements further down the line, at present I am getting hints that Edge is not fully compatible yet..

- no doubt, there will be more on this subject in the coming months..

Yesterday I was forced to reboot my computer as MS installed some Windows Updates. After the reboot I can no longer access google.com's main page and some other https site like my companies Citrix Storefront login page. These all worked before the forced update. There were 2 updates installed KB3142588 and KB3140768. I uninstalled the KB3142588 and rebooted and everything worked again. Later in the day again MS installed something and forced me to reboot. After the reboot, the same problem came back. Funny thing now, is that those 2 updates are no longer there and were replaced by others. One of them I could uninstall and the other I cannot. I uninstalled the one (didn't write done the KB#) and rebooted and still the same problem. It only really seems to be issues with some https sites. I can't believe that there is a problem with googles certificate.

I get a "There is a problem with this website's security certificate". The security certificate presented by this website is not secure. Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept and data you send to the server.

I cannot just accept the cert nor can I look at it like I could in Windows 7.

Hello,

I am unable to access Sign in to your Microsoft account on my desktop computer running Windows 10 on a home Ethernet network using Edge and IE11. I am connected to the Internet through a Fritz!Box 7490 DSL connection.

I originally tried to solve this problem as a network issue - and it may still turn out to be one - but since I am able to log in to my live.com account using Google Chrome on this computer and from Linux and OS X machines on the network, I am now looking at the possibility that it is some setting shared by Edge and IE11 that is causing my problem.

A secondary effect of this problem is that I am unable to activate Office 365 products, because once I enter my account email address, the activation process wants to take me to live.com to confirm my subscription.

I have seen a number of posts on this and other sites about the "Hmm..." messages, and that's the message I am shown when I try to access login.live.com. Since, in all of the other posts, the issue was a complete inability of Edge to access the sites, this seems to me to be something different. Thus, I started a new thread rather than add to one of the others.

I will be grateful for any and all suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Cheers,
hussar

Something I just noticed:
When I use Chrome(using hardware acceleration in settings), to come here, Windows Eight Forums homepage looks somewhat painted, with blocky stripes(artifacts).
But when I use IE11 it's photo quality.
Interesting enough, there are other sites(how-to-geek for example) where Chrome renders better.
Proof again there is no "Best" browser, just personal preference.

On TenForums I get artefacts on IE 11 but not Chrome (the other way around to you). EightForums looks fine on both. Just one of those things I guess..

OS: Windows 10 Pro v.1607
Suddenly Pinterest.com fails to load in Edge; a few pins appear but then the page freezes. This same Pinterest account works fine in IE on this same computer and also loads fine in Edge on other computers. Here is what I've tried without success:

1. Clear browser cache and cookies
2. Delete all files in Edge recovery folder
3. Sign in with another Pinterest user account
4. Sign in with local account instead of Microsoft Account
5. Removed saved password for Pinterest
6. Reboot computer

Edge performs perfectly with all other sites. This issue is apparently limited to this one site in this one browser on this one computer. Pinterest support suggested we use IE Of course, but I like to figure out what causes these things to happen. It may be irrelevant but this issue was first observed following a batch of Windows updates on 12/13/16. The only one that looked like a remote possibility was KB3206632, but that was a significant cumulative update that I really do not want to uninstall. Furthermore, that same update was applied to another computer which does not exhibit this issue. I'm out of ideas. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You've tried all the obvious things I would have suggested, but there is one more you could have a look at, the 'Use Microsoft Compatibility List' setting. This is hidden on a 'Developer settings' page which you get to by typing about:flags in Edge's address bar. Are the 'working' Edge PCs also on 1607? If so, compare this settings page on the Edge that doesn't work with the settings for one that does and see if they are different. If only the 'non-working' Edge is on 1607, then try turning 'Use Microsoft Compatibility List' on or off and see if it makes a difference.

Hi there

Is there any way to copy the stored passwords / account information saved in IE11 to edge

I've a couple of account logins (not Banks I hasten to add) on some sites where I can't remember all the details -- logon automatically in IE11 but I need to try EDGE a bit more now and can't remember those details.

Cheers

Answer:Copy saved passwords / account info from IE11 to Edge

You should be able to find them in Manage Web Credentials in Control Panel. If there are only a couple you can click on "Show" and it will tell you your password and then you can enter it in Edge.


Both Edge and IE store user id/passwords here I believe but I'm not sure how to make one browser use the credentials saved by the other or even if you can.

Hello,
I'm encountering a problem on different computers.
Internet Explorer 11 and Edge are not able to open files from a shared folder located on the same computer.
For example, let's say I typed this "\\10.100.100.10\folder_1\DOC_FILE.doc" on the address bar.
The browser then shows : "This page can't be displayed".
When I display more information, the error "INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND" appears.
I have already tried to uncheck "Enable TCP Fast open" and it is still not working.
It seems like this problem cannot be reproduced on all IE11/EDGE browsers, and can be encountered on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Any ideas ?
Best regards

I belong to a forum where we sometimes post a music video, and I never had problems until a couple of days ago seeing a video that was downloaded to the forum in full-screen mode.

It happens in IE11 and Edge browsers, and just started. A couple of other people are having the same problems. The error message actually blocks the title of the video, so you can't read who it is.

Any idea how to go in these browsers and change the permissions to view full screen for YouTube videos even if they're on another site? On YouTube, the full screen works fine.

I haven't changed any settings at all in the last couple of days. Any advice appreciated.

I was doing reasonably well with Windows 10 after doing a clean installation. There have been some problems with third-party software, but that's not entirely unexpected.

However, since the 1511 update, IE11 and Chrome don't work very well. Chrome is slow and won't load some images, and IE11 often won't even load a page.

(To answer what is probably an obvious question, Edge has no trouble loading pages and does so quickly. However, it keeps downloading some kind of adware from various sites without permission, and that's unacceptable.)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Not a plea for help, but a warning of sorts. Yesterday, IE11 on this system appeared to get hijacked by something in an advertisement. SWMBO (the only user on this box that uses IE11) was on the Daily Mail web site and the CPU usage went through the roof. I'm guessing a third party pixel element in one of the multitude of pictures and ads this site has. There were two pop up messages displayed on top of the web page. One stated that Google Chrome had crashed. The other said the same thing and offered to report the problem. I didn't bite on that one. Task Manager showed multiple copies of "pjjisiyz.exe" running and more would start if you ended one. I signed off the user session and logged in as Administrator. I stopped the browser service, ended all of the copies of the executable, but they would restart as soon as the original user would log back in. I searched the system for the executable and only found it by lopping off the last two characters of the name. It was in a folder called "DSLQJTBZPRI". This folder was in a folder called "PlayReady". The path was C:\Users\"userid"\AppData\LocalLow\Playready. I deleted the PlayReady folder, followed by CCleaner with secure deletion (7 times overwrite) and the problem went away. Here's the twist.

I setup a new user on a stand-alone Windows 10 laptop this weekend and noticed that most websites hang in both Edge and IE11.  I had a look at the user's rights and made sure that they were removed from the local USERS group and only were a member of
the Administrators group.  Then I looked at IE itself and found that if I ran IE as administrator, it worked fine, so I logged the user out and back in again, and still nothing.  I also noticed that IE has a setting to run with administrative privileges,
which I enabled and still nothing.  I thought at this point that it might be a website issue, or at least an ISP issue.  I tried the same sites with the first logged in account on the same machine and everything worked fine.
At this point I was looking at a user rights issue, I thought.  Then I tried the same sites with the new user using Chrome and everything worked fine.  So I'm at a loss as to what this might be.  I've check that IE is using software rendering
so that's not the issue.
Any ideas, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
An example of a site would be to go to www.webex.com then try to log in.  The login page just spins and spins.

I downloaded Google Chrome (owner of YouTube) and they load quickly (as they did previously on IE 11 & Firefox). All other web sites still load and play videos quickly in all 3 browsers. Only YouTube affected in non-Google Browsers.

The only things that changed are:
1. I updated Windows 7 with last week's updates,
2. This week Google changed something in its search results to favor mobile app-efficient webpages.

I cannot figure out what's going on. Sometimes when I click on a YouTube video in a non Chrome browser it says" error; try again in 30 minutes". Anyone else having this issue starting this week?

My single-user Windows 7 Home PC is running both IE 11.0 latest version and Chrome latest version. I've always used IE as the default browser, but decided to change it. A couple of weeks ago I set Chrome as default, and pretty soon after, my Speed Dial 2 was completely inaccessible, as in "Page not found."

I started mining my Acronis True Image backup for files that I thought may contain all the data, but after several tries, I stopped for fear of hosing the whole system. My Speed Dial has a lot of groups and bookmarks, so I finally gave up and restored my most recent Acronis backup. It worked marvelously... Whew! At least I know for sure my backups are good.

So today, I again set Chrome to the default browser. Kaboom. I restored yesterday's Acronis backup and am back to square one. Any ideas what might be happening? I really would like for Chrome to be my default browser, but rebuilding Speed Dial 2 is something I really don't want to do.

I'd appreciate any ideas. I hope I've given all the information necessary to think about this.

Hi,
1. I cannot find a solution for a problem accessing Microsoft forums websites from Windows 10 - IE11 and Edge browsers:
in EDGE - Hmm, we can't reach this page.   IE11 this page can't be displayed.
For about a year it worked at least from Edge. Now both cannot access Microsoft forums. All the other sites are accessible.
I am using a corporate proxy. The same sites are accessible from Windows 7 with IE11.
First I blamed our IE GPO with multiple settings. So for a test I placed my machine in Blocked OU (no IE GPO, proxy is set from different GPO).
Everything what I tried didn't help. The question: why just Microsoft forums (no other sites) are not accessible.
Did couple of tests from Windows 7 IE11 machines. The same Microsoft forums are perfectly accessible (all GPOs are applied).
Suddenly, found that one corporate Web App does the same : "This  page can't be displayed". On other Windows 7 it does work.
I am out of ideas now... cannot blame anymore our GPO or proxy...
Any advice?
Thanks

Nope.
Just use both, I do

All browsers these days,do basically the same things and are pretty fast and snappy.

It's when you start using skins, add-ons, extensions, toolbars, and extra security suite protection that they begin to slow down.

Just keep those to a minimum, and get only what you REALLY need.

That said, I use Edge 97% of the time because it is hooked deeper into the system, with Cortana/Search, and also has better sound when streaming(my setup & my system anyhow), For example I use YouTube a lot, and Find Edge better than Chrome as far as sound goes.

When I first got on windows 10, Edge seemed not so great and I like Internet Explorer better but I knew it wasn't going to be maintained much longer as Edge is now the official windows browser...Although it still seems to lack some of the extra features that Chrome has, since installing Fall Creators Edition, I have been using it for a while and was amazed at how fast it appears to be...like web pages just fly in even when they have a lot of graphics on them...

With Chrome, I've noticed in recent times, it seems more sluggish now...and especially if a page has a lot of "stuff" and graphics on it, seems kind of slow to get it all loaded in...

I was considering making Edge my main browser now but was curious as to what others here think...Is (at this point) Edge good enough to be your everyday browser?

Looking forward to your feedback...any comments, comparisons, you preference, etc...

Answer:Edge vs Chrome

I would say if you don't use add-ons then Edge would be just fine. There's only a handful available for Edge...

Bit the bullet and swapped out my wonky SP3 for a new robo i5 256GB. I strongly encourage anyone buying anything from the MS Store to buy the extended warranty - it has helped me often. The thing about holding off on my warranty swap was because of all the software reinstalls I need to do and the 200GB of data to restore - yeah, if I had to do it again, I'd go 512GB.
So, this is a clean Win10 install. I go to Microsoft's Volume Licensing Service to download Office 2016 - a 800MB+ ISO and the download fails three times with Edge crashing. On top of that, the display driver goes wonky and I can't see the Start menu in its entirety to restart. I want to not have to use Google stuff, but here I am using Chrome again with the Office download at 60%.
Sigh...

Sigh... could you share your os build with us?
I really like the performance of edge over other 3rd party browsers, but non availability of extension support is the major reason dragging me off to chrome & opera. i will soon be over with them as extension support is coming to edge with redstone build :)

I'm having issues with both Firefox and MS Edge and I'm wondering if Chrome would be a better choice and if so would I be able to import my FF Favorites to Chrome? Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:Edge, Firefox or Chrome...which is best.

I have grown to like Edge especially with some of the recent updates. Browser choice continues to be a very personal and emotive subject so I will refrain from saying one is better than another since there are circumstances when some websites will not work well in Edge but work in IE etc.

What you are doing is great - try them out and ask for help if one does not appear to do what you want - someone will step in and show you a way if it is possible.

So, I've been using Chrome for the better part of a year now, and I had an issue with YouTube videos, the video would lag behind the audio. I found no fixes for this, so I uninstalled Chrome and hoped to re-install it just using Edge. However, when I try to download it from Edge, nothing happens. Originally, a message box came up asking what I'd like to do with the Chrome installed, asking me if I wanted to "Save" "Save As" or "Cancel." None of them worked, the only button there that worked was the little "X" at the top right of the box. I tried disabling Edge asking me what to do with downloads, but when I click the download button, nothing happens. No pop up, nothing in my downloads folder, nothing. Please help.

Hi,

I am trying to use "www.yomvi.es" (an on demand video player). I cannot use this on Chrome as it says Silverlight is not supported, this is fine as IE11 supports Silverlight.

HOWEVER

When i try to use Edge i get the chrome error message as the websites recognize Edge as Chrome...... I know edge doesnt support pluggins, but does this mean actually that its closer to a chrome coded browser than MS want to admit.

I have a surface RT and that doesnt support Silverlight either but now my Bandnew edge brower wont let me play it either!?!?!?!?

Hello,
   
So I have been experiencing problems with chrome and edge (I am running Windows 10). Upon start up, browsers will open once but not again. After opening, I might be able to go to another site or it may just hang. If I am able to go to the site the browser will then hang, forcing me to close it. The browser will not open again. I am able to run Comodo Ice dragon which is what I am using to post now. I have run MBAM, MBAR, Eset online scanner and Sophos Virus removal tool and all scans have come back clean.

I have been using Chrome for a number of years now, but on a whim I decided to load up Edge, and wow, what a difference as far as scrolling and swiping. I didn't even realize, but the scrolling on Chrome is quite labored in comparison. It's much slower, requires more movement at slow speeds, and is much less intuitive.

Also, the two-finger swipe to do browser back-forward works really well in Edge, and not at all in Chrome.

I notice the difference also in scrolling with the touchscreen, though it's far less significant.

I'm wondering if this is a Windows thing, a Dell drivers thing, or a Chrome/Edge thing. I don't want to move over to Edge, but I might if I can't bring them both more in line. Any ideas on the cause? I've started here assuming it's a Windows 10 thing (or even Edge, since it's baked in to the OS).

Hi, I am admin om my computer with Windows 10. My wife is second user. We both have accounts on Google and use chrome.
I am logged in and open Edge to import favorites from Chrome.
I get my wifes chrome favorites from her google account, and not my own???
This happens even if only I am logged in.

How do I deal with this? How get my stuff and not someone else?

Answer:Import favorites in Edge from Chrome

Welcome to the forums Tony. It sounds like even though you were logged in to the pc, it was her account signed into google. Go to google, sign in with your creds and try again.

Hello all,
I changed from Edge to Chrome browser following the different formats offered on the internet. When I go to the search bar whether I use typing or Cortina it takes me still to Bing. Does this sound right? It looks like I am in the Chrome browser, however, why am I seeing Bing as the search box?
Thanks for the help.
 

Answer:Change browser from Edge to Chrome

Hi! Have you tried changing your Search engine in Chrome's settings > Search drop down box?

If Bing was your Search engine before, it's possible Chrome picked up its settings from your previous browser.

EVERY SINGLE TIME I open the wonderful Edge browser, i get asked if I want to install Google Chrome; I've told it 20 times I am NOT INTERESTED, but it still keeps up this stupid behavior..

How long until the "so called browser" works properly? It STILL doesn't save any of my passwords, once I open and close Edge even though I have told it endlessly to save them..

I have reported these bugs endlessly to MS...

Edge will NEVER become a mainstream browser at this rate..

Answer:How do I stop edge from asking me to install Chrome???

I very much doubt it will be Microsoft trying to get you to install Google Chrome, it will be Google either in a direct or indirect way.

I must admit I'm also getting fed up with constantly being told to install Chrome too, but Google's heavy-handed tactics shouldn't really come as a surprise as I read recently that Google even pay partners such as mobile carriers and phone manufacturers a slice of the pie by being pro-Google.

Where are you seeing the prompts, in the actual webpage like this or somewhere else?

So, I've just install FCU and I've decided to give edge a real try and not just use chrome. I don't have a problem with chrome, I just want to give edge a real chance now that it is not just on Windows Phone but also on Android. So, I've done a ton of searching on the web and there are a few tutorials on how to import chrome passwords into Edge, but none of them seem to work. I don't know if this is a google thing, or a recent change to chrome but going through the steps in Edge to import passwords just seems to ignore the passwords. It gets the bookmarks (which I don't really care about of course).
I've gone so far as install canary but that didn't really help either, has anyone else tried this recently? had an success with it? With canary I was able to export the passwords to a file, but I don't see a way to import the actual file into Edge...

So I got a new Asus E200HA. Read some very good reviews about it in amazon.
While using the OS (Windows 10) everything works quite smoothly - Browsing around files, editing Office documents, even coding on VS Code. However, Web browsing, for the most part, is extremely slow. Facebook is almost unusable. Ebay, Amazon etc. scroll quite slowly. I've tried multiple ad blockers, but that didn't help. Any advice? I know my CPU is quite slow but everything other than web browsing works well. I also tried disabling some services, like windows search, but that didn't noticeably improve performance. I'm using a fresh OEM Windows 10 Home, with all bloatware removed. Maybe I should use a different windows build?

Thanks in advance,

Samuel

I got a pop up message on my machine stating that using chrome uses more battery than Edge browser.

I feel this is a cheap marketing tactic from MS which really should not be happening in the OS.

Question though - is there any truth in it?

Answer:Is the Edge browser based on chrome?

Nope, it's the user agent string which is use by browsers to identify themselves to sites so they render them properly and so on. This is the User Agent String of edge: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/46.0.2486.0 Safari/537.36 Edge/13.10586

I recently installed Git and GitExtensions on my Win 10 Pro Desktop so that I could do some support for various projects on Github and when I tried to open a browser I had problems. I have my
defaults to to open Chrome when a browser is opened. My problem is when GitExtensions tries to open a browser Edge opens instead... with no navigation buttons/arrows/etc
whatsoever. And GitExtensions complains about setting compatibility-mode or using Firefox or Chrome or whatever. I tried setting the defaults to IE 11 with no change. How
do I get either  IE11 (installed) or Chrome (installed) to open instead of the chopped-down-not-usable Edge?

Answer:Problems with IE 11, Edge, Chrome and GitExtensions

Hi,
you'll have to set IE11 as your default browser. Internet Options>Programs tab, Have you installed the Visual Studio Git Hub extension? You can manage your repositories from within VS i/o the browser.

Hi.  Brand new computer, 4 days old.  Still loading it up with stuff from my old laptop.  Removed Norton with the removal tool and installed Eset Smart Security.  Very little else installed yet.
 
 
I need to go to the Australian retailer Coles reasonably often.  Chrome is my preferred browser.  When I try to get to the website I get:-
 
www.coles.com.au unexpectedly closed the connection.

Try:
Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
Running Windows Network Diagnostics

 
 
Connection is fine, can get anything else I want.  Firewall is not on as I'm running Eset.  Diagnostics is as useless as ever and says it can't determine the problem as usual.
 
HOWEVER, if I use the Microsoft Edge browser, no problem - straight to Coles.
Anyone hazard a guess as to why this is the case?
thanks

I have a problem with pop up ads where when a pop up sometimes occurs it redirects to unwanted ads not where it supposed to pop up to. I know this came from a free download I did and even though I realized fairly quickly what it was it got on my system and infected it. It has installed something somewhere that causes redirection of pop ups.

I have done all normal advertised steps and repeated:

AdwCleaner

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

HitmanPro

Reset browsers to default and rebooted.

I think these programs and steps have done something but something is still present as sometimes when a pop up occurs it redirects to unwanted ads. Probably making a new user would solve I think but would be good to solve it on this user. I know if the right file was deleted it would be gone but I do not know where it is and I am running out of steps to follow.

Anyone have some experience with where it might be and how to remove it? Thank you in advance.
