    Reception

    In an August 2015 review of Windows 10 by Dan Grabham of TechRadar, Microsoft Edge was praised for its performance, despite not being in a feature-complete state at launch.WEB,weblink Windows 10 Review, TechRadar, Future plc, July 30, 2015, no,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20150729004659weblink">weblink July 29, 2015, mdy-all, Andrew Cunningham of Ars Technica praised the browser for being "tremendously promising", and "a much better browser than Internet Explorer ever was", but criticized it for its lack of functionality on launch.WEB, Review: Windows 10 is the best version yet—once the bugs get fixed,weblink Ars Technica, July 31, 2015, no,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20150730231454weblink">weblink July 30, 2015, mdy-all, Thom Holwerda of OSNews criticized Edge in August 2015 for its hidden URL bar, lack of user friendliness, poor design and a tab system that is "so utterly broken it should never have shipped in a final release". He described the browser's implemented features as "some sort of cosmic joke", saying that "infuriating doesn't even begin to describe it".WEB,weblink Windows: it's always the next version, OSNews, September 3, 2015, no,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20150905054301weblink">weblink September 5, 2015, mdy-all, Data from August 2015, a few weeks after release, showed that user uptake of Edge was low, with only 2% of overall computer users using the new browser. Among Windows 10 users usage peaked at 20% and then dropped to 14% through August 2015.WEB,weblink Barely anybody is using Microsoft's new browser, Max Slater-Robins, September 2, 2015, Business Insider, September 3, 2015, shows that Edge peaked at approximately 20% usage among Windows 10 users at the end of July, before dropping down to 14% by the end of August, no,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20150905004020weblink">weblink September 5, 2015, mdy-all, In October 2015 a security researcher published a report outlining a bug in Edge's "InPrivate" mode, causing data related to visited sites to still be cached in the user's profile directory, theoretically making it possible for others to determine sites visited.

The move will increase consistency of web platform compatibility between major browsers, and for this reason, the move has attracted criticism, as it reduces diversity in the overall web browser market, and increases the influence of Google (developer of the Blink layout engine) on the overall browser market by Microsoft ceding its independently-developed browser engine.WEB,weblink Three years in, Microsoft gives up on independent Edge browser and embraces Google's Chromium instead, Shankland, Stephen, CNET, en, 2018-12-29, WEB,weblink Chrome is turning into the new Internet Explorer 6, Warren, Tom, 2018-01-04, The Verge, 2018-12-29,
