Microsoft Edge On Windows 10

If you’re working with Windows 10, you’ll probably have noticed that Internet Explorer is somewhat harder to find on your computer than it used to be and that Internet links now open by default with Microsoft Edge. Microsoft Edge is Microsoft’s new browser, which was released with the arrival of Windows 10 and is designed to be clean, tight and more responsive than its predecessor Internet Explorer.

For that reason, Microsoft Edge comes with less of the power-features that Internet Explorer users have long been accustomed to. Edge was originally introduced without support for extensions or plug-ins, nor the possibility to synchronize your Microsoft Edge favorites or browsing history with your mobile device. Microsoft had planned these extra features for later.

Does this make Microsoft Edge an inferior browser? Not necessarily. (Please take note: The following thoughts and ideas are only my personal opinions and should not be taken as gospel.)

Yes, you’ll find people who don’t like Edge and who are annoyed by the fact that it only supports Windows platforms and thus won’t run on their other devices. And yes, you’ll also find people who complain about other weaknesses in Microsoft Edge. In fact, with any new technology, you’ll always see that people go through an adaptation phase before it gets accepted. When Microsoft introduced Windows 10, people were complaining all around about all sorts of annoyances that they didn’t have with their good old trusted previous version of Windows but in fact, at the time when THAT previous version of Windows was released, there were just as many complaints.

That, and the fact that Microsoft continually works to improve their Edge browser to reduce user-concerns and optimize usability and performance make it very likely that Microsoft Edge will eventually become a widely-accepted browser, catering for the browsing needs of the modern internet user.
