Ouch for Microsoft but it's not surprising

Strange indeed as Edge is both neater and faster, never fails - and comes default.

I've dabbled in Edge occasionally on my home gaming PC at those rare times when Chrome would give me trouble. I've liked how it fit in well with the rest of the Windows 10 UI, but didn't find it compelling enough to fully switch over. I do get worried about Chrome becoming so dominant though, since whenever that happens, there tends to be a downhill slide in innovation and quality. As such, I'm more and more tempted to give Firefox and Edge a shot again...

That would be a hard sell for me to switch to a new browser.  I use gmail for nearly everything now.  Its so intuitive and everything flows together so nicely with all their apps I use.

Yeah, switching to a new browser is tricky... It's easy to have bookmarks, passwords, and all sorts of other configuration that makes it a real pain to set all that up on a different one.

I didn't quite understand what you meant by your use of gmail making it tricky to switch, though... Did you mean chrome, or is there some kind of gmail integration you have set up with your browser?

My work email uses Google apps.
My personal email uses google apps.
Google owns YouTube.
I've created different profiles on chrome browser.

Everything is just in sync and exactly what I need right now.  Chrome has never failed me since I switched from Firefox to Chrome in 2008.

My experience in QA has taught me that Chrome is a superior browser and the other browsers have proven less reliable.  

Safari is nice, but I got into the Apple game in 2012 so Google has just reigned supreme for me to not need to switch things up. :)

Well, I can just add, that Edge to our shop has proven extremely reliable, and I have yet to meet a site where it fails.

Not saying that other browsers don't work - it's just that Edge works, thus a check mark for browser OK.
Enough of other issues to deal with ...

Of course, if we used Macs, Google Apps, YouTube, or GMail, it might be different, but we don't.

@Gustav,

Edge has proven reliable.  I mistakenly lumped it in there with all previous versions of IE haha.  Sorry about that.  I tried Edge for a year on my personal computer when Windows 10 came out.  It was a good experience.

Honestly, some of the biggest problems with IE have always been in developing for it. Even if Edge handles that much better, the legacy of it being related to IE at all is something that can put web developers on edge (pun intended ;-)
