Microsoft edge is dead.


Alan Robbins
 

I have been very happy with Chrome and never took the time to play with Edge a whole lot. I tinkered a couple of times but was not impressed and saw no reason to leave Chrome as by far it is the most common browser of choice

Incredible! They admit how unpopular Edge is and they say this about IE!

Microsoft is losing my respect, especially after breaking Skype as well.

My partner is using Edge as her default browser and yesterday when I was working on her system, there was a notice that came up telling Edge users to switch to Internet Explorer as their default.

Wow!

I have never seen that!

There is always a notice at the top of the web page to switch to Google Chrome, but maybe that is because I have my home page set to Google.com LOL!

I just can’t get into Bing!

There’s something fishy about that; considering MS’s just released press statement about iE, I don’t think they would push a notification like that at all. Even if the architecture of Edge is changing soon, it’s still going to be the Windows 10 browser.
