I've never managed to get Edge browser to, well, work at being a browser. My home laptop runs Windows 10 and even though my default browser is set to Chrome, MS insist on opening the pages they want to open in Edge. Which promptly fails to load anything other than a 404 page. I call that a win.
As for the new version of Edge being based on Chrome, well I'm sure that'll be equally as awful as the old version of Edge. Chrome is mediocre browser, once Microshaft have finished with it, we'll all be downloading Netscape. The future is in the past people.
