I those are the only choices, then there is no choice... chrome wins... yet I don't like chrome. I prefer Firefox, though am looking at alternatives since FF isn't what it used to be. :~(

Cassiebsg +1

Chrome has the best developer tools, but it's Google and Google is the new Microsoft.

Palemoon, perhaps. Or Waterfox.

Yeah, Gurok suggested Pallemoon... I've just been way too lazy to do anything about it yet. :-[

Seriously? Edge or Chrome? That's like asking whether or not you should choose between a Nintendo DS and a Gizmondo.
In other words, you're asking whether or not you should choose between something that known to be good, and something that's known to be bad. Rather than asking to choose between two things that are both known to be good.
So your actual question should be "Firefox or Chrome".
And as for my answer to that question. Chrome.

I find Edge to be a decently competent browser that sheds some of the IE woes of the past. Some.

That being said, as a UI/UX developer, there's still no comparison between Edge and Chrome.

Chrome is demonstrably better in just about every way (for my use case).

Having said that I really don't think, for non-developers, there's really much of a difference as far as user experience goes. M$ claims that Edge is faster than Chrome but I don't see any real difference. Google and M$ also both claim their respective browsers are safer (again I don't see any real difference here).

In the end I think preference for either comes down to which UI you like better.

All they did was change the name.
They didn't even bother to change the logo.
Not that I blame them though. The IE logo is a classic. :-D

I did say some of the IE woes (laugh)

It is not just a name change though. It's a new browser that ditches M$'s legacy crap and finally adopted web-standards (mostly).

I actually like the subtle change to the IE logo to make the Edge logo. It's more streamlined and modern and syncs up nicely with M$'s direction in recent years.

If M$ would just ditch the Apple method of ridiculously overpricing their hardware they would dominate again. But this thread isn't about M$'s future :D

Microsoft hardware? Are you talking about consoles?

Personally, I've found Chrome to be the fastest and easiest to use.

No the Surface line of products (Surface Pro, Surface Book, Surface Studio, Surface Headphones).

I only heard about the first. I guess I'm not the target audience for these things.

I love how people act daft when people mention Microsoft or IE.

To really evaluate these browsers, you should look at the telemetry each one sends back and decide which destination URL you like better.

Ha ha, same here. (laugh)
And here I thought the only things Microsoft made these days was the Surface Pro, the Xbox, and the Windows operating system.

I upload my browser history and computer usage directly to 4chan.
This enables me to use any web browser, with the choice based solely on the merits of each.

My software usage is mostly based on how I feel about them. I almost never used Edge, because I know IE was a bad browser, I felt like the problems would continue with Edge.

For me, the actual comparison is between Firefox and Chrome. I choose Firefox, because I like it for reasons I can't explain. Chrome is used for my secondary accounts on sites like Twitter.
