  • So close to the ideal browser Feb 17, 2022

    By AZRoboto
    This has become my default browser, but I have to rate it three stars for a few very specific reasons: 1. Auto-complete Suggestions for Search/Browsing: URLs and Favorites need to be prioritized. Often, I'll type in a full word (such as Wordle) and the page I've been visiting every day for weeks won't appear, even though it's a favorite. Now as a Top Site, it only appears when the full word itself is entered in. It's at the bottom of the list. This issue is also in the Desktop version. Favorites and Recent History need to become higher-priority items in the search results, and appear earlier. 2. Misleading links in Search: when entering in the full name of a website (such as "arstechnica" as a single word), I will see "Website" in the detail text of the search row. Why is this the Bing search result and not the Website itself? Better yet, why is the website not in the search result list at all?? 3. No way to add the current page as a Top Site. For all the functions in the ... menu, there is no simple "Add to Top" function. 4. Top Sites change, replacing ones I manually added. If numbers 1 and 2 get addressed, that alone would prompt me to update this to five stars. Those two things are much better/more consistent in Safari's search experience.

    The ad blocker occasionally fails in Edge. Fortunately, I was able to make the ads go away by turning on "Strict" tracking protection, force-closing Edge, restarting Edge, and then refreshing the page. I hope this issue is fixed in the next update, since the ad blocker is one of my favorite features. It would be nice to be able to use the ad blocker with "Balanced" tracking protection so I can properly view features like embedded tweets. Also, I wish the ad blocker worked in InPrivate tabs. Another issue I have with Edge is that about every month or after I reboot my iPhone, my pinned top sites are overwritten with "frequently visited" sites. I just decided to hide them on the new tab page, but they show up again when I tap the address bar/omnibox. I wish they could be hidden everywhere, or at least never get overwritten. Other than that, I enjoy using Edge as my preferred browser on iOS. Support for organizing and editing favorites and collections is almost equal between iOS and Windows. (Unfortunately, Edge on iOS unnecessarily truncates default favorite names, unlike on Windows.) There's even support for some hidden settings via edge://flags. I also like the ability to scan barcodes and QR codes via the camera tool in the address bar/omnibox.

    I have a confession... I'm a big fan of Opera. My secondary go-to browser would probably be Firefox. And I've never been a fan of that most infamous of Microsoft products, Internet Explorer. BUT Edge is rapidly growing on me, and here's why... I do most of my browsing on Android tablets with BIG screens. And I cannot stand it when every one of those other browsers constantly opens in "mobile" mode and forces me to switch to "desktop" mode. Edge is the ONLY one that STAYS in desktop. Big THANKS!

    Since the app was updated to provide history at your fingertips once again, I honestly have no complaints about Edge, either the android or the laptop/PC version. I like how they set up the access to favorites, history, and more by clicking on the ellipsis to the right of the address bar, which brings up a dropdown 'box' with various choices.

    I've used Edge on all of my devices for years. Typically the experience has been 4- 5 star, at least until I got my S22 Ultra. Since upgrading, I'd rate this browser 2 stars at best. I'm not sure whether the blame is on Microsoft or Samsung for how poorly the app runs, but performance is absolutely abysmal. The amount of stuttering and/or latency when using the app makes it almost unusable. I've had switch to chrome for the time being, I hope the performance issues are resolved soon.

    When I was trying to log in to Clever in Google Chrome on my computer during the beginning of a new school year, it keeps redirecting me to the same page. However, I tried logging in Microsoft Edge and it worked and I became interested in using the new Microsoft Edge. I usually use it for my school work and everything else. Well, I also like to use Google Chrome sometimes for education and everything else. I think like both browsers (Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome), as well as other Chromium-based browsers. The legacy version of Microsoft Edge became unsuccessful, due to fewer features of the browser. I used Google Chrome as my default browser and I became to like it a lot. Since Microsoft Edge became Chromium-based, I became to like it. I do like browsers that became Chromium-based. Thank you, Microsoft! Microsoft Edge is so new, newer than ever!

  • Issues far outweigh its usefulness Jan 26, 2021

    By Nbppp2
    Summary: The issues far outweigh the benefits. It’s clear MS is still trying to play catch-up, and are still far behind. This browser has good privacy, but the issues it has make it near unusable about half the time. I had gotten better over the year but the fact that it seems to have some serious issues when using Google as the search engine means I don’t recommend it. The good: it works more like chrome and sites work good (good, not great). The privacy features are a plus, even over chrome. I’ve chosen to use it over chrome for this issue. The bad: using google as the search engine causes issues on every search past the first one. If you go into app switcher, close edge and search. No issues. If you come back several minutes later and search again in the same tab, the search freezes and the browser does nothing. MS - I’m not going to use Bing. It’s crappy (I’ve tried multiple times a year and it hasn’t gotten better). Stop handicapping other search engines to push your own stuff. Certain sites which are coded to hide the search and option bars, have issues when trying to get those bars to show up. Edge starts to act like no touch events are being made so it takes a lot of clicks to get them to show so I can navigate elsewhere. Either that or edge is just slow in responding to this. Neither of which is good.

    Dumping this app and finding another one that actually makes sense. Buggy, slow loading compared to other ones, missing features that most other browsers have. They try too hard to do their own thing and reinvent the whell when it doesn't need reinventing. Obnoxious menu with all kinds of buttons nobody ever uses, can't hide or delete any of them, takes an extra step to click Home because you need to open that menu first when a home button could just be places on the bar on the bottom. Trash.
  • Reader View Missing Aug 25, 2021

    By Link2999
    Rating this 1 Star for now even though it does deserve more than that, but I’m hoping a developer can read this review. The app right now advertises its immersive reader mode, but it actually doesn’t work if it’s even available. Tried a few different webnovel sites like RoyalRoad and Scribblehub, but no matter what, the reader mode option just didn’t show up. If I wanted to contact support, it looks like I would have to jump through a bunch of hoops, so I’m leaving this review here. I’ll make sure to update it if it ever gets fixed. On another note, if the reader mode is fixed or added to the app, I'm hoping for it to really be an “immersive” reader. So every time a new web chapter is available, it will automatically load it (the next page) once I finish my current chapter. Safari used to do this, but unfortunately the last update removed this feature. The only browser I know that still does this on iOS is Alook.

    I'm disappointed in the mobile version of Microsoft Edge, it's nothing in comparison to the desktop version. Everything is congested, I don't like the fact that I can not drop down the 'My feed'menu like on the desktop and also that there is no way to change the comfort level to that of compact, comfortable, etc..

    Honestly, this is almost the worst mobile browser I've used... UI is terrible and is difficult to use (everything is placed randomly and blends in a way it's hard to differ each one). Favorites are a pain to access and just aren't consistent with the PC app. Needs an overhaul, otherwise, I will never use this.
  • Frequently freezes and crashes when starting up Mar 7, 2022

    By Kylezo
    I have been trying to switch to edge for 2 years but it's actually unusable still. I have 6-10 tabs open at any given time and over 30% of the time I launch it, it freezes within 5 seconds and crashes. When I wait for it to finish crashing and open it back up, it'll pop up a prompt saying "edge crashed, restore tabs?", But if it crashes again, which it does about 1/3 of the time, I can no longer access the restore tabs feature, losing all my in progress workflow, and none of the tabs are in history or recently closed. This is obviously unacceptable, but the fact that it's so frequent is really embarrassing. Guess I have to go back to Chrome AGAIN. It's kind of mind boggling that it's so difficult to justify using in a situation where they already have very low market share. You'd think they'd be extra cognizant of massive issues like this.

    So far I like it better than chrome. It's way more user friendly and structurally organized. Microsoft can use some improvement in there cloud storage. You can't seem to move pictures around to match what your phone is capable of which works against you when it come to time management. These companies beg for your attention with bells and whistles then drop the ball on details they want to sell you on the next version. just lazy and greedy at the same time.
  • Quick and reliable browser! Jan 26, 2019

    By DJdantheman1980
    Since Windows 10 came out I have regularly used it on my PCs at home. Over the past year+ I’ve been using the Edge browser on my iPhone and it’s been trial and error over the time, but like the PC version it’s come a long way and works great! Other than speed that you’ll see as a difference vs Safari and Chrome, there’s a lot of customizable features available on the settings and of course everything links conveniently to your Windows desktop if you want to set it as so. My personal favorite that is built into the Edge phone app is the ability to enable add blockers on webpages so they do not show up (so you don’t accidentally click on one) and it speeds up the page loading even more. Highly recommend, excellent browser for mobile devices!

    It's a good browser. Millions of miles better than IE. But it's a Microsoft product so only gets used for boring stuff. Privacy respecting browser this is not, not at all. It's well made and easy to use. It's basically chrome with a Microsoft badge on it. That's not a bad thing, it's just a mix of two of the biggest data collection and agrigation tech giants. If you want private, this isn't for you.

    I absolutely never write a review, especially about a Microsoft product, however, I am an IT Professor and teach Microsoft Office in a required Freshman year due to so many children today coming from High Schools have never even used Office before. Nearly every school system in America is run by Chromebooks (cheaper) so all they know is Google Docs, Slides, etc. FINALLY MICROSOFT HATS OFF 😆👌🏼! You finally designed the new edge from the open source called Chromium which is the basis for Google Chrome and Opera and a couple others. It's a very professional and presentable Home Tab that you can customize as well. One thing that needs fixing is the continue to an from PC, at least with an iPhone iOS 13+ newest one. That's the only complaint I've gotten.

    I have never been eligible to experience a app like Edge. How I experience it in my mind is like this? The app is like driving a car with a built motor wich produces speed with a 350 turbo transmission that shifts gears nice & easy with a lot of torque! I've always been told if the car breaks down make sure it breaks down near the house so we don't have to tow it that far. After we built a motor I wouldn't break it in, I would twist it hard as it would go! Edge hasn't given me no problems.
  • Good browser with a few bugs May 9, 2022

    By Toa Of Justice
    The ad blocker occasionally fails in Edge. Fortunately, I was able to make the ads go away by turning on "Strict" tracking protection, force-closing Edge, restarting Edge, and then refreshing the page. I hope this issue is fixed in the next update, since the ad blocker is one of my favorite features. It would be nice to be able to use the ad blocker with "Balanced" tracking protection so I can properly view features like embedded tweets. Also, I wish the ad blocker worked in InPrivate tabs. Another issue I have with Edge is that about every month or after I reboot my iPhone, my pinned top sites are overwritten with "frequently visited" sites. I just decided to hide them on the new tab page, but they show up again when I tap the address bar/omnibox. I wish they could be hidden everywhere, or at least never get overwritten. Other than that, I enjoy using Edge as my preferred browser on iOS. Support for organizing and editing favorites and collections is almost equal between iOS and Windows. (Unfortunately, Edge on iOS unnecessarily truncates default favorite names, unlike on Windows.) There's even support for some hidden settings via edge://flags. I also like the ability to scan barcodes and QR codes via the camera tool in the address bar/omnibox.

There’s one feature missing that prevent me from giving it 5 stars, however, and that is custom search engines. The desktop version of Edge allows you to set up any search engine you want, but for some reason the mobile version only supports Google, Yahoo, Bing, and DuckDuckGo. That’s probably fine for most people but I’ve been a big Ecosia user for years, and while I have been using Bing a lot more recently, I still think it would be nice to have the option to use any search engine I want. Plus, I occasionally seem to have serious performance issues when having 50 or more tabs open, while with Chrome, even with that many tabs, I had no such issues. Besides those annoyances, this is still a clean and better designed alternative to Chrome and Safari.

    This is the last browser that actually has a functioning desktop view feature, which is something very important to me because 2010s mobile web design is absolutely atrocious. Chrome, Firefox, and Safari's "Request Desktop Site" buttons have done absolutely nothing for the past several years, and Puffin has been held down by Apple far enough to not be compatible with many sites anymore. I'd been hunting down and trying so many other browsers, but virtually all of them had the same problem. This was my desperate last resort. But to my surprise, that last resort pulled through. The desktop view in Internet Explorer (I know it's not called that anymore, but I still call it that out of affection) isn't perfect—the text wrap is irritating and makes sites like Reddit unreadable in-browser, for instance—but at least, unlike every single other iOS browser, the desktop view EXISTS.

Also, PLEASE add an option to make the URL bar at the bottom. I went to Kiwi browser to check out the afformentioned item, and I loved it. Otherwise, a fantastic browser. Keep up the great work dev team.

    Update 2022: Here we are 2 years later and this is still happening. I love edge but this is ridiculous! Please fix edge browser when searching bing. Every time I search for something and go back, it shoots me to the top of the search results and is very annoying! This creates a bad experience. It doesn't do this when searching bing with Chrome browser.
  • This browser gives the upper edge! Dec 2, 2017

    By Calebo 85
    This browser is really good! Since it is my favorite browser on Windows 10, of course I had to download it when the version for iOS came out! I am very impressed with the speed! Since I have an iPhone 5, and since Safari and Google Chrome are CPU intensive and since iPhone 5's CPU isn't very powerful, I've found that Microsoft Edge works much better than the competitors! The only problem is that sometimes when I am using the voice search and when I try to use it a second time, I have to start the browser again. I am not sure if the exact reason, but I am guessing it is because my RAM is maxed out, since my phone only has 1GB of RAM. But overall it is a very good browsing experience and I would like to say really good job Microsoft! You have made a really good browser on Windows 10, and finally brought it over to iOS. The browser is just as good and I am really happy that it's finally over on mobile phones!
  • The newest version killed my favorite feature Jan 17, 2022

    By Essika-chan
    I loved that I could now, with the update before, add favorites from safari. I use edge on my computer and it was a super fast way to use both and navigate without over loading my phone by opening them in edge and safari just to save them. But now I can’t do that anymore!!!!! I open so many pages a day and leave them open… I tried to just open them on edge but the app crashed and they were all gone!!! So o keep to safari on my phone and I loved that I could have to option to save them when I went to open them in edge. I love the browser but to give me something I love and take it away so quickly makes me sad. That’s why this is four stars. Cuz I have some sadness now. Will still use just it makes me sad… for what was.
  • Edging Out Other Browsers Dec 13, 2017

    The speed of Edge has made it my go to on Windows...and now on iOS. I like the design, especially the minimalist navigation bar on the bottom of the browser. Being able to send a URL to another Windows device is also neat - and allows Windows users the ability to continue browsing on the desktop - just as OSX users can on Safari. Being a cross platform user, I am loving being able to integrate the two ecosystems in varied ways. Tab navigation on Chrome is also superior to others. The snapshots and grid of tabs makes switching a breeze .... and it is much easier to use than the ‘cascading cards’ on Chrome and Safari. The only complaint (minor quibble) is that it’s not fully integrated into other MSFT applications on iOS. For example, Outlook only allows me to open links in Safari and Chrome, not Edge.

    After 16 months use. Easy to setup. Changing home page and search to Duckduckgo was simple. However, selection of a new page will default to Microsoft. Very annoying that I have to hit the home button to bring up the home page I specified in settings. Finally, I wish it had an embedded VPN like Opera.

    Update (3/4/22) - the issues have been fixed, thank you for fixing the issue Microsoft Edge support. Below is the original review.: ------------------------ Went from great to dreadful in a week. Desktop tabs won't stay as desktop when I suspend the app, and now it can't even load a desktop tab without the whole app crashing. I don't like Chrome, but I'm seriously considering switching if this problem doesn't get fixed.

    I've used Edge on all of my devices for years. Typically the experience has been 4- 5 star, at least until I got my S22 Ultra. Since upgrading, I'd rate this browser 2 stars at best. I'm not sure whether the blame is on Microsoft or Samsung for how poorly the app runs, but performance is absolutely abysmal. The amount of stuttering and/or latency when using the app makes it almost unusable. I've had switch to chrome for the time being, I hope the performance issues are resolved soon.
  • Really liked Edge until... May 31, 2020

    By maddscot
    Really liked Edge and made the switch from Chrome. When setting up it asked to sync my bookmarks which I did and all was fine until a day later. Duplicate bookmarks and multiplying. Did the removed duplicates feature and they came right back and subsequently duplicated them across all devices and browsers too (Chrome etc.). Had to make a clean copy of my bookmarks, store as a file, delete Edge and Chrome as well as disable all syncing on all devices. Installed a clean version of Chrome, imported bookmarks, and no all is fine. Support from Microsoft was poor, support from Google 1 was poor as each blamed the other. Though I will admit no issue ever using chrome. Shame as I really liked the Edge browser too. When it is for sure fixed I may give it another try.

    I'm disappointed in the mobile version of Microsoft Edge, it's nothing in comparison to the desktop version. Everything is congested, I don't like the fact that I can not drop down the 'My feed'menu like on the desktop and also that there is no way to change the comfort level to that of compact, comfortable, etc..

    Honestly, this is almost the worst mobile browser I've used... UI is terrible and is difficult to use (everything is placed randomly and blends in a way it's hard to differ each one). Favorites are a pain to access and just aren't consistent with the PC app. Needs an overhaul, otherwise, I will never use this.
  • Issues far outweigh its usefulness Jan 26, 2021

    By Nbppp2
    Summary: The issues far outweigh the benefits. It’s clear MS is still trying to play catch-up, and are still far behind. This browser has good privacy, but the issues it has make it near unusable about half the time. I had gotten better over the year but the fact that it seems to have some serious issues when using Google as the search engine means I don’t recommend it. The good: it works more like chrome and sites work good (good, not great). The privacy features are a plus, even over chrome. I’ve chosen to use it over chrome for this issue. The bad: using google as the search engine causes issues on every search past the first one. If you go into app switcher, close edge and search. No issues. If you come back several minutes later and search again in the same tab, the search freezes and the browser does nothing. MS - I’m not going to use Bing. It’s crappy (I’ve tried multiple times a year and it hasn’t gotten better). Stop handicapping other search engines to push your own stuff. Certain sites which are coded to hide the search and option bars, have issues when trying to get those bars to show up. Edge starts to act like no touch events are being made so it takes a lot of clicks to get them to show so I can navigate elsewhere. Either that or edge is just slow in responding to this. Neither of which is good.

    Dumping this app and finding another one that actually makes sense. Buggy, slow loading compared to other ones, missing features that most other browsers have. They try too hard to do their own thing and reinvent the whell when it doesn't need reinventing. Obnoxious menu with all kinds of buttons nobody ever uses, can't hide or delete any of them, takes an extra step to click Home because you need to open that menu first when a home button could just be places on the bar on the bottom. Trash.
  • Reader View Missing Aug 25, 2021

    By Link2999
    Rating this 1 Star for now even though it does deserve more than that, but I’m hoping a developer can read this review. The app right now advertises its immersive reader mode, but it actually doesn’t work if it’s even available. Tried a few different webnovel sites like RoyalRoad and Scribblehub, but no matter what, the reader mode option just didn’t show up. If I wanted to contact support, it looks like I would have to jump through a bunch of hoops, so I’m leaving this review here. I’ll make sure to update it if it ever gets fixed. On another note, if the reader mode is fixed or added to the app, I'm hoping for it to really be an “immersive” reader. So every time a new web chapter is available, it will automatically load it (the next page) once I finish my current chapter. Safari used to do this, but unfortunately the last update removed this feature. The only browser I know that still does this on iOS is Alook.
  • Frequently freezes and crashes when starting up Mar 7, 2022

    By Kylezo
    I have been trying to switch to edge for 2 years but it's actually unusable still. I have 6-10 tabs open at any given time and over 30% of the time I launch it, it freezes within 5 seconds and crashes. When I wait for it to finish crashing and open it back up, it'll pop up a prompt saying "edge crashed, restore tabs?", But if it crashes again, which it does about 1/3 of the time, I can no longer access the restore tabs feature, losing all my in progress workflow, and none of the tabs are in history or recently closed. This is obviously unacceptable, but the fact that it's so frequent is really embarrassing. Guess I have to go back to Chrome AGAIN. It's kind of mind boggling that it's so difficult to justify using in a situation where they already have very low market share. You'd think they'd be extra cognizant of massive issues like this.
