    Concerning Edge:

    Where is the menu bar?

    How do I access Internet Options?

    Pardon me if I am just blind; but, I don't see any option there to show a menu bar or to switch to the new tab when I open one.

    I guess no tabs preferences either.

    Looks like Edge is the Windows 8 of browsers, another fiasco.

    Edge> exit, stage right.

    Yes, I accidentally found that looking for Internet Options and the menubar, so What's the point of Edge? IE has all the functionally of Edge and more. It's almost as though they went back to the attic, pulled out some stuff they hadn't finished and thought it would be a great nostalgia trip.

    It reminds me of some guy who tried to hand me a flyer in the Walmart parking lot. I told him, "You throw it away.".

    I have been using google chrome for some time now, and only rarely use IE.
    And played with Edge for a little while but soon went back to chrome
