Re: The Edge

@Todder  @Whoopty   I probably won't be using Edge for anything extensive - I'll stick with Firefox and Chrome even though it is a resource hog and I love to keep many tabs open.

Re: The Edge
I'm trying not to pile on Edge here but I tried it for a couple weeks because I have a handful of IE only sites that I have to use regularly. Let me just say it's really frustrating that Edge behaves worse with those "best viewed with IE" sites than Chrome or Firefox.  Luckily IE has been good about compatibility mode so web devs can keep using ancient plugins so ending support on old versions of IE doesn't hurt like it used to.

Re: The Edge
@Whoopty You would think coming with Win 10, Edge would handle the memory usage a little better. But, no, not really. As bad as the rest of the other browsers. Surprisingly, Firefox is the best of the three in this regard.

Re: The Edge
Folks in my organization haven't found anything compelling about Edge. Also, if you develop and run multi-platform software that has a web ui requirement FF and Chrome are better options.

Re: The Edge
I really should give Edge a shot, but it feels strange ot even consider using a Microsoft browser after so many years of Chrome and Firefox usage. What's Edge's memory usage like? That's my one complaint with Chrome is that it sucks up so many system resources.

Re: The Edge
Edge is a fast little browser. A work in progress though. It has nice features, but also lacks some.
You could you use a virtual enviroment in Server 2008 to check WIndows 10 and Edge.

Windows 2008 and IE 11

"....Microsoft is urging those using Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 2012 R2, and other versions of Windows Embedded to upgrade their browsers to IE 11 by Jan. 13 in order to safeguard their systems."

As someone who has a Windows 2008 server in use.  This is very useful information.

 

Thanks !

The Edge

At first glance I thought Microsoft was giving up the browser altogether.   I am interested to see the Edge. 

Is it a new design completely ?   Sounds like it.
