A review I saw of Win10 said that Edge is still in a very basic form and still has a number of features to be added.

I never liked IE so I've not really used Edge, preferring to stick to Firefox and occasionally Chrome which work fine in W10.

If Edge is meant to be an oblique reference to 'cutting edge' then I can tell you that it isn't.
Cheers

I've got an assortment of browsers and was just trying Edge out.

Edge is a completely new browser by Microsoft. They claim it is and will be 100% standards compliant. But it already has issues. There are some things that work on all other browsers fail with Edge. The developer community is hoping that its just some teething issues and Microsoft will iron out bugs with time.

Everything on GMG seems to work fine with Edge (I posted this message using Edge) except the BBC and Smileys when posting.

In the meantime, I suggest using Chrome, Firefox or Safari, all of which work fine.
