Don't misunderstand me and think I am a Microsoft-hater. It is quite the opposite, actually. Believe it or not, despite its many issues, I like Windows 10 and use it regularly. I even appreciate Microsoft's support of both the Linux and open source communities. So, why would I be against installing Microsoft's web browser on my Linux machines?
This is usually what haters say trying to give weight to their opinion...lol

To be honest, the company has a long history of abusing its power and negatively impacting the web. Its Internet Explorer web browser was a security nightmare, causing tons of computer users to get infected with malware over the years. The company supported non-open standards too. Not to mention, Microsoft essentially ruined Netscape by bundling IE with Windows -- a dirty anti-competitive move.
Which shows the lack of security understanding ( a browser is an AV now? ROFL, users never click on malicious stuff right?...) and profound ignorance of what business is... (lol you sell hamburgers, you also sell Coca-Cola but it is anti-competitive to make a combo menu? hahahaha)

Ultimately, there is no reason for a Chromium-based Microsoft Edge to exist at all,
i found reasons (integrated smartscreen, built-in, sync, no-Google, etc...).

and there is no reason desktop Linux users should sully their computers with it. I am not opposed to installing Microsoft software, such as Skype, on my Linux computer, but a web browser? No chance in hell.
your biased opinion, which worth...nothing.

Another click-bait article made by a disguised-hater having nothing else to do. MS don't push ChromEdge on Linux, they offer it. If people want to use it on Linux, good for them. so go back using FF and STFU.

Only downside for me is that bing search on new page will sometimes give you ads during searching, wich is confusing for family members

I hoped i could change new page with duckduck extension, but nope

Does anyone else think that the Beta version is actually more consistent and stable? Bookmark sync is also working without an issue in the Beta. I personally switched to Beta for the time being and waiting for the official launch of Stable in mid-January.

yesterday

@HotCakeX I updated the original release notes post, but I'll mention down here too that there's a known bug for the Task Bar icons not updating properly, and we're going to try to push out a fix for it over the next day or two. There are a few other places that we're also aware of that don't have the proper icons yet (Task Manager, the all apps list in the Start Menu, the Windows Search results pane), but if you find any other places the icons aren't getting updated, please let us know!
