that weird anxious feeling you get when trying to work out if this is a good idea or not.

"There was a problem downloading the required files"

OK, well that lasted long.
MS cant even have their installer finish anymore.

    It's really really similar to chrome. Nothing special

    @AlgoRythm except it's like a mix of Firefox (privacy wise... err ok before someone shoots me, privacy setup wise) and chrome, I'm sure it's still tracking things like crazy though.

    Got it to work the 4th go, lousy thing really didn't want to get past the download part.

    What’s installer ?
    I always just copy my files to Applications directory.
    Is it some kind of windows only experience ?

    @AlgoRythm Difference is : it's feeding data to Microsoft and not Google.

    Both are good. I use EDGE at work and Chrome at home, didn't see much difference

    @NoToJavaScript chromium still sends home data to Google but a lot less

    @AlgoRythm I need to check that. But if I was Microsoft, I would’ve removed that.

    @NoToJavaScript if I was Microsoft I wouldn't have built my own, brand-new, HTML engine and then ditched it a few years later. But what do I know, I'm just a small town Algo.

    @AlgoRythm EDGE (original) has too many problems. I’ve tried it (And by “try” I mean used for 3 months as default browser).
    A lot of bad rendering. No (very few) extensions. Slow. VERY SLOW JavaScript. But the font smoothing was awesome tho !
    They were 7 years too late with it.
    I approve their choice of chromium, but now we have chromium = new IE6. Used by most users, we are already seeing websites only working on chromium.
    I don’t know if there is a good solution. Mozila is out of the race for the past 5 years. (FireFox just sux, no other word I can use).
