I tried using Microsoft Edge to view forum (fine) and then to reply to a post but found I could not insert quotes from a previous post into my reply. Tried  on all 3 of my lap tops with same result. Works fine in Internet Explorer.

Edge occasionally won't let me use any of the buttons for adding tags, also I accidentially highlighted a bunch of text and hit a key which on any other browser I would be able to undo. No such luck with edge.
Edge has no spellcheck suggested correction which wastes a great deal of time as my spelling is terrible, and please avoid that button "Make a webnote" because if you open it then exit your page refreshes and erases all your text.
Also Edge is slow as balls at everything.
Edit: oh and in addition to that it doesn't quote properly either. My iPhone is an eminently more suitable browser for typing in, the last part of my Fiction was entirely drafted using it.

Aparrently edge uses less power? So there's that. Though when I tested with wikia the baseline 2 watts before opening the browser went upto 3.5 watts with intermittant peaks of 6 watts using chrome, and 3.2 watts with peaks of 12 watts on edge. So er? Wikia is a terrible website I guess is the result of that experiment, it's ads are cancer and I should be ashamed of using it to crib Star Trek related factoids.

Use Memory Alpha?

Never mind, it's hosted on wikia too. I didn't know that.

They can call it another name and give it some new looks, but its still the same crappy browser.

I was happy with IE. Prior to Win10/Edge. Even IE11 in Win10 flakes out somewhat. And I dislike Google.

IE worked fine, then Microsoft decided to prune all the features out of it, dispite that it's slow as balls. 
I'm back to Firefox fanboyism now.

Umm no,  it's completely unrelated which is actually the source of most of it's problems.

you picked the one browser worse than Edge?

even Safari is a better choice than FF at this stage

Considering 95% of my foruming is done with Safari on my phone I should be offended. Though I haven't really used Firefox for about a year so maybe it went downhill in the time I was using IE 11.

Not sure about native versions of Safari they may be fine, like the Mac version of iTunes, however the windows versions of Safari is clown shoes,  much like the windows version of iVirus, er tunes.

well since the rabif Firefox fanboys are starting to desert it,  I think it's gotten worse since you left it.

Time to try opera maybe? I really don't want to use chrome as it always gives me grief, my sisters laptop can't handle having it open while playing fallout. Might be the 400 mb of ram it uses even just with Google open.

everything I've heard shows Firefox MUCH worse on memory management,  you do know Opera is now built on top of Chromes Webkit render engine?  though it does appear to be where all the frantically anti-google firefox crowd have gone.
