Why does everyone always act like there are only four browsers in the world? Opera used to be vastly superior to anything else until they ruined it. I tried Chrome and a lot of others and finally found Slimjet, which is built on the Chrome engine but comes closer to the old Opera than anything else out there. Highly configurable, can disable the Google snooping functions, works well overall, neat extras like the ability to save pages as pdf files. I miss Opera a lot less now.

I have used most versions Opera. I try new versions, but personally I do not like it. It is horses for courses, which ever one prefers use it, there is no right or wrong.

i've been trialling win10 on a spare laptop.... latest update and cannot run the edge browser -- i get 'edge has expired, get it from the online store'. 

Doesn't that defeat the purpose for testing, because the online store does not actually have edge available.

I am running 10162 on my PC and Edge is running the best it has during all the builds I have tried. Have you filed a bug report?

Edge performs well but I have to wait for the finished product as I won't use any browser that doesn't have ad blocking capability and a favourites bar that allows me to arrange the links in the order I want, rather than alphabetic.

The Edge Favourites bar can be arranged as you like

You can with Edge if you use the Hamburger menu for Favourites

Hopefully more of Microsoft's own sites will start recognising Edge (and indeed, even IE11 in some cases) as a "current" browser version fairly soonish.

If Silverlight isn't supported by Edge, which appears to be the case, then that removes the ability to use it with the Application Catalog for SCCM. Hopefully this is resolved one way or another soon. I see nothing in the interface that justifies the need of Silverlight so hopefully an update to SCCM will redo it in HTML5 or something Edge compatible.
