Initial impressions.. Seems pretty much identical to Chrome. I'm even getting the same sort of CPUUsage for typical resource-hogging sites. *shrugs*

: Download

^ The AudioTag's default style is identical to Chrome's.
It's like MS just copy+paste the entire bloody thing!

The Edge install has plucked EVERYTHING from Chrome. My bookmarks, my favourites, my recents... .. .. My saved passwords.. ... ...

..
Not sure I like the idea of Microsoft nabbing all my passwords, like that..

Have been using this pretty much exclusively for the past couple of days.
Honestly, it's nothing remarkable, but I think that's probably good, in that "At least it isn't Internet Explorer"!

Once this becomes the default installed browser, I can see my use of Chrome getting abandoned.
One downside, though, and I'm not sure if they'll fix this up, is that Edge was actually really alarmingly good at finding faults in my dodgy code style, with the little console.log coming up with all manner of little quirks that Chrome and Firefox would happily ignore..

Hmm...

Also, it crashes intermittently when visiting TweetDeck, but I think that may be more to do with how many accounts I have tied up in my TweetDeck display, than anything!

The "Main Beta" version of Edge is now upgraded to Chromium.

https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-gb/download/

The download page no longer makes any mention of Chromium, symbolising just how "normal" the Chromium edition is about to become.

The only reason anyone uses MS browsers is to download a decent one!
