Microsoft Edge Browser: 17 minutes till the first crash.

Windows 10 Update:

SC_009
I crashed Microsoft Edge the very first time I used it.

I was interested to see how Edge, Microsoft’s replacement for the old IE almost everyone but me hates. I gave it my morning task… a rough run through it’s paces for any browser. So far, it’s crashed regular IE and Chrome trying to do what I want. Only Firefox outlasts the ritual.

I load up Facebook first every morning, and as I scroll down and down and down, I occasionally see a link I want to read, but rather than taking it aside and breaking my stride, I hold down the CTRL key and click the link.  This opens that particular page or graphic into a new tab, but does not display it for me.

After 20 minutes or so of Facebook scrolling, all dependent on how late I went to be and how much new content interests me each day, I have between 5 and 30 tabs open.  Then I close Facebook and start to read the rest of my morning news.

IE usually fails before I get to the end of new Facebook content. Chrome passes many days, but still fails now and then before I’m done. Although I don’t like Firefox as much, for this particular morning routine, it hasn’t let me down yet.

I was excited to try Microsoft EDGE on this exercise. It failed. Bad. I can’t even rick it to give me back control, so now I have an Edge browser with 12 tabs of information I was genuinely interested in reading – inaccessible to me. They’ll be lost when I am forced to TASK MANAGER quit the frozen tool.  I’ll lose it all.

If I’m lucky, I’ll be offered the opportunity to reload the tabs when I restart, but I’m not counting on it.

Oh well Microsoft. At least you tried.

Rain Rules

The chickens don't want to get wet so when it starts to rain instead of going back to the coop they come up to the house and hang out on the porch under a roof. Likewise, I'm not a big fan of getting wet, so today I made up rain rules which indicate it's okay to feed...
