I like this app but it has disappointed me for the last time. Sometimes the app will crash and any recent data will be randomly deleted. If I was using the app to browse for something for hours, leave the app (i have the setting so that it restores the session), and this crash happens, all the previous browsing work will just disappear like it never happened. The websites that I went to will not be in the history and I will have the play the stupid backtracking game to find out where I was. If I had opened another tab during this deleted period, that tab will cease to exist.
For example, I use the app to read books online, which means that I go to a new webpage for each new chapter. I can spend a couple hours to get from chapter 1 to chapter 50. If this random crash happens, I will open the app on the webpage that says chapter 1 as if I just hallucinated the whole thing of reading 50 chapters. I assure, I'm in my right mind.
And now I just opened the app and found all my tabs were deleted. The history is fine, but the apps are all gone. I don't understand this. I can no longer trust this browsing app since it keeps doing this.
Best browser ever than the legacy version!
By Daniel I. Rodriguez
When I was trying to log in to Clever in Google Chrome on my computer during the beginning of a new school year, it keeps redirecting me to the same page. However, I tried logging in Microsoft Edge and it worked and I became interested in using the new Microsoft Edge. I usually use it for my school work and everything else. Well, I also like to use Google Chrome sometimes for education and everything else. I think like both browsers (Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome), as well as other Chromium-based browsers.
The legacy version of Microsoft Edge became unsuccessful, due to fewer features of the browser. I used Google Chrome as my default browser and I became to like it a lot. Since Microsoft Edge became Chromium-based, I became to like it. I do like browsers that became Chromium-based.
Thank you, Microsoft! Microsoft Edge is so new, newer than ever!
This comes up when IE is searched but it is far from it . I have tried them all but none come close to the browser I want which is the old IE . The browser I want has the most famous toolbar is history with the layout across the top < > refresh home button favorites, tools etc . Instead we get redesigned mixture displayed all over the browser, they all block your ability to even create such an experience. FireFox came close years ago but then too many hands got in the way and made it the whole browser junk. Chrome would be a great choice if it would allow such a addition but as it stands store websites bookmarks is a worthless venture for Chrome . Safari just doesn’t even get what a browser does !
This is ok but lacks user free functionality which also limits customizing how we want out browser to operate.
If and when someone creates this type browser it would be the only app I would be willing to pay for and I think it soar in popularity plus work better in a mobile device than all them combined!
Unexpectedly picked up the slack when other browsers failed
This is the last browser that actually has a functioning desktop view feature, which is something very important to me because 2010s mobile web design is absolutely atrocious.
Chrome, Firefox, and Safari's "Request Desktop Site" buttons have done absolutely nothing for the past several years, and Puffin has been held down by Apple far enough to not be compatible with many sites anymore. I'd been hunting down and trying so many other browsers, but virtually all of them had the same problem. This was my desperate last resort. But to my surprise, that last resort pulled through.
The desktop view in Internet Explorer (I know it's not called that anymore, but I still call it that out of affection) isn't perfect—the text wrap is irritating and makes sites like Reddit unreadable in-browser, for instance—but at least, unlike every single other iOS browser, the desktop view EXISTS.
This browser gives the upper edge!

This browser is really good! Since it is my favorite browser on Windows 10, of course I had to download it when the version for iOS came out! I am very impressed with the speed! Since I have an iPhone 5, and since Safari and Google Chrome are CPU intensive and since iPhone 5's CPU isn't very powerful, I've found that Microsoft Edge works much better than the competitors! The only problem is that sometimes when I am using the voice search and when I try to use it a second time, I have to start the browser again. I am not sure if the exact reason, but I am guessing it is because my RAM is maxed out, since my phone only has 1GB of RAM. But overall it is a very good browsing experience and I would like to say really good job Microsoft! You have made a really good browser on Windows 10, and finally brought it over to iOS. The browser is just as good and I am really happy that it's finally over on mobile phones!
Quick and reliable browser!
Since Windows 10 came out I have regularly used it on my PCs at home. Over the past year+ I’ve been using the Edge browser on my iPhone and it’s been trial and error over the time, but like the PC version it’s come a long way and works great!
Other than speed that you’ll see as a difference vs Safari and Chrome, there’s a lot of customizable features available on the settings and of course everything links conveniently to your Windows desktop if you want to set it as so. My personal favorite that is built into the Edge phone app is the ability to enable add blockers on webpages so they do not show up (so you don’t accidentally click on one) and it speeds up the page loading even more.
Highly recommend, excellent browser for mobile devices!
Password Syncing has always been a problem for me since first use!
I’m Office 365 user for four years and I love Microsoft’s softwares, the same for Edge browser. I like speed and reliability of Edge browser EXCEPT for syncing! For me, syncing passwords never works in Edge browser(iPad). Bookmarks syncs, but sometimes history not sync ... etc. Edge on my iPhone(never on iPad) syncs passwords but it takes a long time to sync. It’s a real pain. I don’t know why passwords and history syncing in CHROME browser happens in real-time but NOT in Edge browser. So, I have to rely on Chrome although I don’t trust Google for web browsing. I don’t know why Microsoft can’t fix this to sync in real-time even though it is one of the most advanced Tech-companies in the world.
Please FIX Syncing Problem!!!!
Edging Out Other Browsers
The speed of Edge has made it my go to on Windows...and now on iOS. I like the design, especially the minimalist navigation bar on the bottom of the browser. Being able to send a URL to another Windows device is also neat - and allows Windows users the ability to continue browsing on the desktop - just as OSX users can on Safari. Being a cross platform user, I am loving being able to integrate the two ecosystems in varied ways. Tab navigation on Chrome is also superior to others. The snapshots and grid of tabs makes switching a breeze .... and it is much easier to use than the ‘cascading cards’ on Chrome and Safari. The only complaint (minor quibble) is that it’s not fully integrated into other MSFT applications on iOS. For example, Outlook only allows me to open links in Safari and Chrome, not Edge.
I absolutely never write a review, especially about a Microsoft product, however, I am an IT Professor and teach Microsoft Office in a required Freshman year due to so many children today coming from High Schools have never even used Office before. Nearly every school system in America is run by Chromebooks (cheaper) so all they know is Google Docs, Slides, etc. FINALLY MICROSOFT HATS OFF 😆👌🏼! You finally designed the new edge from the open source called Chromium which is the basis for Google Chrome and Opera and a couple others. It's a very professional and presentable Home Tab that you can customize as well. One thing that needs fixing is the continue to an from PC, at least with an iPhone iOS 13+ newest one. That's the only complaint I've gotten.
Chrome + Firefox = Edge 2020
By Ado Chokolado
This is like if chrome and Firefox had a baby and Microsoft was the surrogate mother.
This browser took the best parts of Firefox and the best parts of chrome and merged it with the best parts edge had in the past. Battery life is amazing on my surface and my iPhone. Looks great, just waiting for more extension support for the desktop version.
Some tips for the future, if you ever listen to me. Listen, MBA executive’s who call the shots. Make a Microsoft version of “google apps” and connect it the bing search engine like google does. Make make it in a way you can’t get sued for it and actually have it connect to the actual applications through the cloud. This would be such a power love it would take google 2-3 years to catch up.
