Browsers don't 'carry' viruses.
The way that you get viruses via the internet is by visiting sites which drop them into your computer via the browser, and that can happen whichever browser you use.
I spend a great deal of time using the internet every day, I use Chrome, because in my view it's the best. It is no slower than any other browser I've used, and I have never once picked up a virus infection when using it.
Microsoft Edge is not, in my opinion, anything like as good as Chrome but that may just be me - you get used to a browser, and you tend to stick with it.
The most popular browser by far is Internet Explorer, over 43% of all internet users run it.
Edge has just 3% of the market at the moment - it hasn't been well received.
