With the release of the Anniversary Update (AU) for Windows 10, Microsoft is introducing new features such as improved inking support, refining the Start menu and Edge is receiving a large update as well. After each major release – the initial Windows 10 launch and the 1511 update – I have tried to use Edge as my primary browser, but each time I eventually switched back to Chrome as my daily browser.
Why did I abandon EdgeÂ before? Primarily, Edge would crash frequently, resulting in lost work that would slow down my productivity. There were other minor annoyances like passwords not syncing and no extension support was frustrating, but I could live without them if the browser bested Chrome in speed and/or resource allocation.
