Windows 10 Users - Do you favor Edge over Google Chrome as your default internet web browser?

Windows 10 - Microsoft Edge vs Google Chrome

I use both browsers. I have Edge as my default browser but I sometimes use Google Chrome.

But, to be fair, you will see the main differences between these two competing browsers by clicking the following link - Edge VS Chrome

For me, I like Microsoft Edge in my Windows 10 better but I use Google search engine more often than I use Microsoft Bing.

It is all determined by the following factors as to which is best for you.

1. Familiarity of a browser. Obviously, the more you use a certain browser like any person does, you will be less inclined to switch and more inclined to stick with the tried and true.

2. The age of your computer and how far back your Windows experience has been. Many people have become long familiar with Windows and it's most widely used Internet Explorer web browser.

Since the age of apps and mobile phones and tablets, the trend has been rerouted to a new and faster course.

3. Your computer's speed of data processing, RAM and hard drive capacity and your type of internet connectivity, DSL or High Speed Internet or Fiber Optics.

4. The place you work probably uses a particular Windows OS for business and uses one or more type of browser. In some cases that would be Internet Explorer. In some cases Windows 7, not Windows 10. There are other Operating Systems out there as well as different types of web browsers.

Very interesting. I generally use Chrome more than Edge. I used to use Edge quite a bit, but I'm just kind of use to using Chrome.

I actually really like Edge. Previous to windows 10 I used chrome for years even although there were a few things I didn't like about it, but when I upgraded to windows 10 I thought I would try Edge and I quite liked it. However after some more updates Edge became far too slow and I went back to Chrome. When I bought a new laptop which was pre-installed with windows 10 I went back to Edge and it works much better on the new laptop so I am quite happy with it.
