Is There Hope For Edge?

Saturday, August 27th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Windows 10

There’s a big feature about Windows 10 that makes it stand out from previous versions of Windows. A question asked by a reader gave me a good chance to address it.  “I waited until a couple of days before the end of the free Windows 10 deal to install. It is doing fine except that Edge is freezing or jumpy. I was advised to use another browser until this problem is solved. Is there any hope for the future?”


From what you write, I can’t be exactly sure what the issue is, but I’d say the answer is “yes.”  With Windows 10, Microsoft is constantly making tweaks to the OS to work out bugs. They plan on doing regular updates as opposed to saving them all for big updates like service packs in Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 and 8.1.1 for Windows 8.  In fact, a major update that makes some significant changes to Edge is slowly rolling out.  I can’t promise that it will fix the particular problem you’re having, but I can tell you that Microsoft is working Edge and all of the other aspects of Windows 10.

    Two words. Edge… blows!
    Seriously! No spell check? The program is slow and annoying. Every time I run it MacAfee pops up with at least three notifications about some aspect of the app that it had to give permission to run. The only reason I use it is on occasion I run across a video that won’t play in Chrome for some reason (and I hate the fact that Microsoft programs force Edge on me even if my “default browser” is set to Chrome). :@

    I am disappointed with Edge too. It does not have any extensions for Norton Security with its Identity Safe and Login Protection. Therefore I’m using Chrome and Internet Explorer 11, which often freezes. Microsoft wants you to use Windows Defender instead of other anti-virus programs and should be compatible with other venders instead of shutting them out.
