    * chromes drop down settings has full screen icon beside zoom stuff.

     

    works well steal it.  also - please use the old ie MOUSE to TOP OF SCREEN = SHOW BROWSER ADDRESS AND TOOLS

    Chrome has a stupid layer that says you are in full screen - and you have to exit to get to the address bar

     

    dumb

     

    ie did this best

     

    put it back

    thanx

    @jamie:Where do you see they have dropped it?

    From all I can find, it's just that the Edge team didn't implemented it yet and the kiosk mode will probably come in a later update.

    If there are blog or announcement that the Edge team officially decided to drop it, please provide the URL for us to see. Thanks.

    Edge needs some serious TLC.  It is a great browser in theory, but its execution leaves a lot to be desired.  Many of the problems seem obvious and easy to fix.

    Mostly it can't pin website to taskbar. So, I have to use IE. Although this is a rarely used feature by web users. Since it is new, I will give it time to mature. Of course, if it is slow to update, I will be as frustrated as before.

    Btw, why does Fav sometimes are like 500x500 large and rest of the fav are 100x100 small? It is kinda strange.

    Also it doesn't seem to sync with my phone IE. Hope the sync will be back soon.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    * I know edge is "new" but what it is replacing is not new - and should have the BASIC features of its predecessor.

     

    so when I say removed - I mean - removed from the Microsoft browser environment - in totality

     

    * it is like - I used the IE Hammer for 10 years - and now MS replaced the IE hammer - but the new hammer has no rubber on the handle - and only hammers in nails - no extra part to pull the nails out

     

    I want the one hammer - but new. not a new hammer that is half a hammer

     

    I curse like a contractor everytime I have to go to the top to refresh or go back

    it's all part of this "Last windows" thing they started, they now think it's ok to ship an un-finished application and keep updating it till they get it where they want it.

    I also think they have over done that idea -  reminds me of the windows 8 all-for-tablet move.

    too much of a change in the program is not always a good thing, the huge swing in how they release and what the bar is for "ready to publish" are kind of strange now.

    Pretty much every feature request on UserVoice says: please add missing feature X from IE to Edge. It's great that Edge is catching up fast with standards but it seems they don't have a UI team.

    @jamie: The problem with this thinking is that if they waited until it was feature complete then it would take far longer to get people to start using it.  IE market share was sliding.  Edge was being written from scratch.  I would rather they push out a mostly-done browser and stem off the bleeding than to wait until it is too late to fix.  That is the problem they had with Windows Phone.  Apple was eating their lunch and MS lost tons of market share.  By the time they got an OS out people were too ingrained in the Apple ecosystem to get people to switch.

    There is always something that has to give.  You can't have it all.  It is like that famous triangle diagram.   "Quality -- Speed -- Cost".    You can only pick two.

    No, the problem with Windows Phone was that it was a totally redudant offering.

    It wasn't particulary cheap, but had less features than Android and iPhone, all the while having all the restrictions of the iPhone..

    Meanwhile, all the traditional strengths of the platform (business features, tight connection to the MS ecospace, open ecosphere) were thrown out of the window.

    It's ridiculous how long Android and iPhone had better connectivity for Exchange than Windows Phone. Or the VPN disaster (like four years after release and ten years after WinMo)

    It had nothing to offer to stand-out (except.. metro. Yay!) and was born out of pure Apple envy with no sane thought behind it

    Churning out even more half-assed crap will do nothing. Why should someone use a buggy Edge when you can download something better within half a minute? Because it's pre-installed? Is that still a factor at all?

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm maybe it wasn't such a good idea to write an entire web browser from scratch. Surely someone should have foresaw this. ;)
