    Nope, but if I was required to support Windows browsers, then I might care.

    More options are good, but anything from certain companies needs to be suspected of not doing things good for the users. Sometimes that is violating privacy and other times it is violating standards. Today, all the major browsers seem to be doing both either on purpose or by accident.

    I remember working support for a fortune 50 company and having to tell customers that the Edge browser wasn't supported with our products. I've heard it is based on Chromium, but I don't usually use generic browsers.

    I won't be installing it.

    Sure, life isn't quite hard enough trying to get web sites to play nicely with Windows browsers, we need more frivolous problems to solve. It's job security I tell ya', JOB SECURITY!

    the new edge will be chromium based. still not sure what teh advantage is of using it. it is not fast and it is clunky. i haven't used the chromium based one i think. so that one might be faster. anyway the settings and options in it are really limited at the moment. with chromium there should be more plugins i guess. because the current one is quite lame in that area.

    I'll probably try it for shipoopies-and-giggles.

    It will lose what little appeal it has if it doesn't sync, or allow to continue from one device to another.

    Funny thing would be if it becomes available for Linux before it becomes available for their own Windows X (ARM) Surface! Currently there isn't one available.

    I think the question is simple... Will it fall under the "Free Software Foundation" guidelines? I'm pretty sure that it won't... but if it does, then why not?
