Hi John and Susan

Same experience here. Edge is very fast and raises security to the top. Just
turn off all the news stuff it loves to display by default.
Also, we have one mandatory extension to install: Adblock Plus from Eyeo
It is extremely efficient in cutting all the adds and crap, thus cutting
dangerous links and speeding up page loads. Again: Added security which is
important here as we handle a lot of sensitive stuff for clients.

I'm quite sure, that the lack Susan experiences is not caused by Edge

Edge became very popular in the IT would because its basically google chrome
without all the google crap that turned into a bloated slow as molasses
memory hog. If Edge is not running well make sure you clear out the cache
and the extensions.

I run edge all day long with many tabs open to MSP Portals which are very
intense web apps. I used to run those in Firefox but it just didn't work
out. And then there's Google Chrome. Ate up most of my RAM running the same
things I run in Edge now.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure Microsoft with eff it up somehow in the future
(starting with now, lol) but for now it's a much better solution than
anything else on Windows. You just have to keep on top of it.
