Why the fuck would you use Internet Explorer or Edge?

    I think the answer is that some guys are too lazy to install an other browser

    Edge is ok, there are a few things to do but we don’t have to do anything special for edge.

    IE 11 is almost ok but lacks a few really nice things.

    But personally I prefer firefox with chrome in second place.

    IE older than 11 should be replaced yesterday and IE 11 as soon as possible, at least with edge.

    Techaltar has just done a video on Edge, and why Microsoft wants their own browser at all

    You're not being paid as a Chrome developer but a web developer. -every user, ever.

    The funniest thing, when receiving support from Microsoft the first thing they said to me was can you use chrome. In another call they asked me which browser are you using.. (I used Edge that time)

    Some government sites only work in IE, even some bank applications work only in IE and it's frustrating because with every Windows update IE dies more.. Welcome in IT support!

    Edge is a step forward, but the development takes too long, not that much plugins etc.

    As long as you use a browser that supports flexbox, you're good to go imo

    Edge is fine, it uses far less battery than Firefox and Chrome as well.

    Is doesn't deserve all the shit it gets it's actually a very nice broweser, not up to par with the other one sbut by far better than IE

    Edge is based on chrome. It's a good enough browser.

    Jetstream tests, from left to right quantum > chrome > edge

    And that's why I use edge.

    People who don't know to use installers. And Windows employees I guess.
