    With Win10 use reportedly increasing I thought we could find out who uses Microsoft Edge. It is more of an novelty to me at this point, mainly because it does not support extensions.

    Tried it a few times, but it doesn't work right on too many sites. Still needs a lot of work before it can stand up to daily use. I stick with Firefox instead.

    I don't use it. The lack of extensions is not an issue since I prefer not to use extensions anyway. However, I'll stick with 360 Extreme Explorer, as all the functionality I need without installing any extensions.

    I've just noticed while playing a youtube video I minimised Edge and the video paused. o_O

    I haven't noticed that with other browsers.

    The browser has potential, but not enough for me to use it full time (at least for now).

    I currently use Firefox.

    I only use it when Chrome requires too much memory (sometimes I have too many tabs remembered while using a RAM Disk and virtual machine), or if Chrome censors a download as "malicious" (false positives has happened).

    It's very fast for me, but lacks some features for me to use it fulltime. Need more time to cook.

    It's unfinished and as such unusable.

    Microsoft made the decision of not pouring more resources into this to have it ready on time and now they will pay the price of a tarnished reputation which is what they were trying to get rid of with the rename from IE.

    I am only using it as a PDF reader. For printing PDFs I am using the new PDF printer in Windows 10.

    Chrome and Firefox have PDF reading functionality with the ability to print so this isn't an edge unique thing.

    I use it to read PDFs too. Bye bye Adobe Reader + others. :)

    It's rubbish. It looks like a horrible toy. IE11 actually is a browser with proper functionality. This thing is something from a Willy Wonka dream, in monochrome.

    Don't use it, waiting for extension support.

    I think you hit the nail on the head on this one. I totally agree. It's not even usable as is....

    Wow, I didn't know it was THIS bad? I wonder why M$ didn't spend more time in developing it.

    I took a look at this browser for a couple of minutes before I decided to go back to FF as fast as I could.:)
