I binned Edge when it turned out that it doesn't keep any of the tabs from your previous session after updating itself, without even asking if you want to update, or advising that this would happen.
Until they allow a bookmark pane on the left had side like every other browser I ain't using it.
Trying to get the OH off IE onto Edge is particularly difficult because of this. A dropdown is just not as good.
A study (PDF warning) by Professor Douglas Leith of Trinity College Dublin found Edge to be one of the least private browsers.
Brave was the only browser in Tier 1, as most private
Chrome, Firefox and Safari were in Tier 2
Finally, Edge and Yandex were ranked last in Tier 3
Not even heard of Brave TBH
Can't remember where I heard about it - a news article somewhere - but ever since, we've had it on all desktops and mobiles. I'm using it now!
It's not infallible, but it's pretty good and the extensions I used to use in Firefox all carry over (even though it's Chromium-based, I think).
Tab session manager or whatever it's called is incredibly useful. Has a green disk as a logo.
I use brave on my low powered coda spirit, it does a great job of blocking everything and keeping cpu and memory usage low. Runs quicker that every other browser, on everything else I use edge, no issue with it.
