Microsoft Edge is in a weird place. On the one hand, it's a solid browser with extension support, modern technology, and (at least on paper) good performance. However, since most of the modern web seems to be built with Chrome in mind first, some websites simply underperform on Microsoft Edge.
Some users in our forums are debating whether or not Edge is truly ready for the prime time, and we'd like to hear your thoughts as well.
I quite like Microsoft Edge, but some websites crash or even cause the browser to vanish altogether. I've lost work due to Edge's bugginess, but matters have certainly improved in recent Windows builds. Hopefully it only gets better from here.
Microsoft recently announced that Edge will become compatible with Progressive Web Apps (PWA), bringing an app-like experience to websites. The advantage of PWAs is that they are truly platform-agnostic and should help buoy Microsoft's barren Microsoft Store. But we'll have to wait and see how it pans out. For more information on PWAs, go over here.
In the meanwhile, jump in our forum and let us know your thoughts on Microsoft Edge!
