    Not looking forward to the next update when they force Chrome Edge on everyone, even with the memory improvements, I'll end up with 4 internet browsers installed.

    It replaces previous Edge, rather than being another installed browser.

    Does it, that's good news, i guess. That means I'll have the same 3 internet browsers installed as now.

    Even after you've said that though I'll be casting suspicious sideways glances at Edge, if it's anything like IE it may want to hang around like a bad smell.

    I switched to Chromium Edge a few months ago from Chrome as Chrome kept messing up on my phone (and I like to sync passwords/bookmarks across the board). Got to be honest I've not looked back. Well worth the switch. Chrome just feels bloated and slow in comparison with the same extensions.

    My son says Edge is good as well. Not really given it a chance myself though I must admit.

    Re: Microsoft fixes up Windows 10 May 2020 Update printer issues

    "New" Edge shoved itself in my face whilst I was trying to work. First it invaded my Windows 10 VM whilst I was busy running some ARP spoofing detection experiment (all I wanted was the Windows 10 machine to generate net traffic and be the victim to see if a network detection thing would work). Then, when I turned my main PC back on with a limited amount of time before I was scheduled to make a phone call, it shoved itself in my face and wouldn't sod off.

    Done with it. If you make your program an annoyance, I'm done with it. A simple notification saying it has been installed would have been enough and I'd probably have tried it. But no, they opened it up, splashed a huge screen in my face and made me click and whinge like a child having a paddy to get rid of it. Oh and then it put an icon on my taskbar (no!), an arrow on the screen to it (NO!) and a big message box showing me they'd screwed with my set up and I really should try it because it's really very good and they know what is best for me (NO, NO, NO!). I'm pretty sure it was trying to trick me into setting it as my default browser in the "into" stuff as well as stealing all my bookmarks from other software, etc.

    Plus I have Firefox set up to work exactly how I want.

    Does anyone know, does Edge send use data to Google as well as MS or does the Chromium thing not leak all your private data to Google?

    Not exactly related to printer issues but i wish they'd fix the placement of windows, I'm getting fed having to resize windows each time i open them because of the gap between them and the taskbar, first world problems i guess.

    I remember when IE11 wouldn't work with HTML5, in effect Microsoft
    threw all of us under a bus, which we were getting used to. So I
    decided to switch to Firefox. At first, it was slow then 6 months
    later they rolled out many improvements and haven't looked back
    since. Now Microsoft is begging us to use Edge but I wont go back.

    You can disable Edge using the Group Policy Editor on Pro versions of Windows 10
    I actually like the new Chromium version and have opted for the business edition so it updates less frequently, though it is a 3rd browser for me. I use it when Cliqz & Firefox won't show a page because of all the addons I have on those and it's easier to just have a browser with minimal addons to display complex or fussy sites.

    If you have W10 Pro you can delay feature updates for 365 days and security updates for 30 days. You don't have to be a beta tester any longer. If you don't use Outlook on your PC you can also set your internet connection to metered and it won't bother you at all, until it claims the version you're on is out of date by which point it's probably wise to get a slightly newer version.

    Still no recognition of the update on my AMD build, but my Intel based laptop has a little paragraph in the update app saying it's coming but not ready for my configuration yet
