Learning to use the Edge system

If, however, you want to use Edge, despite a few notable flaws, you'll find it's actually a decent browser.

In particular, one thing to note is that running Edge on a touchscreen laptop or tablet produces the best outcomes, as it was optimized by Microsoft to support touch or pen input. In a way that other search engines will not really allow you to do, websites can be doodled on, shared and generally messed around.

In addition, Microsoft has put a lot of effort into making Edge fast and, most of all, battery-efficient. Anyone who has ever used Chrome on their laptop will tell you that it only consumes battery life, so for some this may be a refreshing change, though we'll have to wait to see if this will change Edge's move to Chromium.

It is also possible to share favorites, browsing history, passwords, and so on between Windows 10 devices, meaning that using Edge on one device will be the same experience as using Edge on another. Before you decide it's a problem and make any vows involving bargepoles and so on, it's worth taking some time to give Edge at least a tryout.
