Anybody tried it ?

Not yet, I will at home when something doesn't work in Firefox for me.

At work we use Chrome and Internet Explorer 11.

Have you tried it?

Been running Edge Dev for a while. Installing new Edge and removing the Dev one on all laptops. Good browser and seems faster than Firefox. I like it especially as you can load extensions from the Chrome web store.

Installed it on the 32GB drive on my CODA earlier, just for a look see. Seems ok once you've got rid of the fancy stuff on the front. AdBlock and AdBlock Plus installed, so I'll probably install it on my desktop in the next few days. Probably a bit faster than old Edge.

What's the <25! refer to in the opening post?

Had a look at it, & when I declined to link my office account I lost all my previous favourites & bookmarks from the older edge version...I think I'll stick with Opera for now.

Interestingly Opera is a Norwegian app which is owned by a Chinese company named Golden Brick.

x13: wasn't aware of that.

Been using Opera (PC) for a couple of weeks, no problems, I like it as far as browsers go.

(<25!) was my frivolous way of getting my thread title up to 25 characters :o)

qwbos - right, ok, understood...less than 25 exclamation mark had me confused, but thanks for clarifying.

Works fine on PC but i found it unusable on my Android phone,very slow to respond so i have gone back to Chrome
