    • Clicking on a download link immediately downloads instead of giving you a prompt like in IE
    • There is no option to right-click and "Save target as..."
    • Ctrl+N opens up a new browser window with a blank URL instead defaulting to the current URL like in IE

    It almost seems like Microsoft was trying to make an exact copy of Chrome.

    Can you blame them?

    Even if Edge reaches Parity with Chrome (which I have installed less than a handful of times) the real issue is that most people associate Windows and Internet browsers with work, so when it comes to buying a phone or using a web browser, the last thing you want to do is use the same browser that you were filling in orders for from an urgent delivery from Germany.

    Google are still ahead of the game with search so it would follow reason that a product based around their biggest strength would be successful.

    Microsoft need to do what Alphabet Inc are looking to do (have done), call themselves Valhalla, and the browser Valhalla Edge.

    there are no ad blockers available for Edge.  You cannot use a browser on the current day internet without an ad blocker.

    Typing in Edge often lags, something I don't experience in other browsers.

    I just hope Edge can achieve some kind of consistency in how it works with standards. Recently, I'm needing to put in more comments like this: //hack to make Chrome work

    It may not be related but.... I gotta wonder if its WinRT roots are going to hobble Edge. If anything I hope this will drive more parity between WinRT/UA/Whatever-they-are-calling-it and Win32s at least on the desktop.

    If we all believed in unicorns and fairies the world would be a better place.
