Microsoft Edge adoption on Windows 10 far from impressive


About two months ago when Windows 10 launched, Microsoft introduced their new browser called Microsoft Edge which brings some new features over Internet Explorer, But sadly no one uses Microsoft’s new browser on their Windows 10 Devices.
According to new data, Windows 10 users are sticking with Google Chrome rather than Microsoft Edge.San Francisco-based firm Quantcast says 70 % of Windows 10 users are using Google Chrome.


Ouantcast said: “The wide release of Windows 10 did initially bump Edge’s market share from 12 per cent to 16 per cent.
Some of the poor part in Microsoft Edge is that it does not currently support add-ons, However we expect to see more improvements in Microsoft Edge in Threshold 2 update for Windows 10, which is expected to arrive later this month.

    Edge is a bad joke, even if compared to IE11. Unstable, unpluggable, unsettable (set download folder, eh…), and yes very slow (even if they optimized it for some html5 js tests, just for lie to the customers that it is fast).

      Yes !! But I hope TH2 will improve the browse.

      I don’t see it running slow for me. I think people can’t switch to Edge yet because no extensions. Its there and it works very well. At least now you can sync bookmarks between devices. I’m sure we will see improvements along the way.

        Running slow or rendering slow. I mean rendering slow. Amazing slow. Eh, in 2015 a new version of Edge will be able to sync bookmarks between devices. It is not a good news, the question is how could Edge go live without any minimal services? Another question: why Microsoft thought people will love a lame and silly new browser?
