    If you can install Chrome then it makes sense the same for Edge.

    When I run Chrome or Palemoon or others it was always Portables only so wasn't quite sure how it would tie into Windows 8.1 without sticking feelers in other parts of it. Very wary of Microsoft's new techniques to those ends and 8.1 is been flawless

    What are they guys talking about? IE has been dead on my system for at least 15 years. :D

    Not mine. Where's your sense of adventure :D

    I still use IE on Windows 8.1 for sites that I selected are OK to make visits on.

    On casual browsing and clicking links it's Vivaldi all the way! :thumb:

    Not in this box
    - I also use IE for a number of websites. It allows me to download videos with a special plugin that doesn't work with Chrome or Firefox.
