What is Microsoft Edge?

THANKS TO ALL who replied.

If I had known what it was, I may have considered using it.

But it was installed without my knowledge/permission.

I will wait for independent reviews on it, before I use it.

And I'm still on Windows 7 Professional, which I thought was no longer receiving "updates."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It installed itself onto my computer several days ago, plus onto another computer of a client of mine a few days ago.

What is EDGE supposed to do for me or who/whatever?

Thanks in advance for any clarification on this.

2. I think it's just another browser

It can install itself if you have Microsoft Suite

3. It seems to be a browser that they are pushing

and trying to get people off of chrome, I guess. I uninstalled it immediately.

5. It is a browser that replaced Explorer. It's the default browser for Windows now.

7. I know what year it is...

...and "Edge" works with Windows 7.

Because it installed itself without warning me.

11. It is the MS replacement for Microsoft Internet Explorer that was loaded on ALL Windows computers

for more than a decade. Nothing new about this. But, you can elect to use another browser and set it as your default (which I did).
