One big complaint we had about Windows 8 was its inconsistent approach to the browsing experience. The Metro and desktop versions of Internet Explorer were two different entities completely, and you couldn’t even use the Metro version if IE wasn’t your default desktop. Ugh.
Windows 10’s mix of the new Edge browser and the ability to run Windows Store apps inside desktop windows negates some of the woes, but not completely. Internet Explorer still lingers, for use with legacy websites, so Windows 10 still ships with multiple browsers preinstalled. Making matters worse, Edge simply isn’t that great yet, as my colleague Mark Hachman noted in his Windows 10 review. It’s just so grey and bland, many of its killer features aren’t working great yet, and the browser can tax your hardware worse than Chrome in some scenarios. Edge may be great someday, but not today.
