    Installed today, & this seems (to me) added functionality to MS Edge. This update took approx 2 hrs.
    I have 3 other machines, that can be updated. I use FF, Chrome, & Tor browsers. Anything to gain, not using Edge?

    Hmm! Felt like two hours, did not time. Many test for malware nada! Max speed via cable! After 8/11 win update, showed "dl/install 2004"

    Thank You!

    1. I really did not see any real advantage to 2004, other than compliments Edge. I'll review https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/whats-new/whats-new-windows-10-version-2004
    2. ISP is very very unreliable (cable). Example send test email to self: msg body X then send,
    using ISP email, one character "X" to self, will timeout, Gmail sent returned in 1-2 sec.
    3. It's impossible to communicate with ISP, & answer regardless is "it will be better tomorrow"
    not true. Slow DSL alternative.

    No malware, crap ISP, what does 2004 offer than enhancements, that make it "got to have". Not using EDGEo_Oo_O?

    I've seen it take 10 minutes to 5 hours on various laptops.

    H i Brian, Hope your & family are well!
    My ISP was down for many hours since, my last post. Now able to respond.

    2004 Update yawn, roboform, supplies user/pass. I really don't see, advantages to Feature/Update from 2004.
