      As a follow up, the chromium ver. of Edge is now the default version that's offered with Windows starting with this update. Is it worth it? Well,the older hardware system I mentioned above struggles with 720hd youtube videos. In FireFox you can notice the occasional frames being dropped to keep from buffering but when the same video is played in the new Edge under the same conditions I couldn't notice any frame drops.FireFox had the Singers hand jump from 1 position to another when reaching for the mic stand several times throughout the video for example but that didn't happen in Edge.The Video was Purple Rain by Prince in 720.Audio quality of that video also seemed to be clearer/crisper when playing in Edge.

        ...as long as we can switch 'default' to whatever browser we want, it is an annoyance, but not much more than that...makes you wonder though about Microsoft being tone-deaf given the various regulatory cases it lost on similar behaviors already. I guess the lure of 'big data' is just too strong, with the benefits outweighing the (legal) costs ?

          Maybe I worded that poorly, it offers to change from your current default(for example chrome) AFTER the chromium version of edge is installed instead of the prior non-chromium version of edge.Edge has ALWAYS been installed,before it was non-chromium,now it defaults to the chromium version being installed. The actual BROWSER YOU USE is still left @ your choice. They went from the big e icon to what looks almost like the chromium icon.

              Just loading the basic microsoft homepage with the browser signed in but NOT SYNCING, I can scroll down the page as fast as I can turn the wheel and the and it keeps loading new news stories fairly well.Even tried it with 15 tabs open & it kept up. Edit: Only thing I've run across is a friend having issues with some pages loading, think it may relate to this. "In the default Balanced mode, Tracking Prevention blocks most third-party trackers from sites you haven't visited, as well as "known harmful trackers." Go to Settings > Privacy and Services and change this setting to Strict if you want to block third-party trackers, even from sites you've visited. Note that this option effectively works as an ad blocker.

              Occasionally, you might find a site that breaks when the Strict setting is on. The quickest way to troubleshoot that sort of problem is to click the padlock icon in the address bar and then, under the Tracking Protection heading, turn the switch to Off.

              That automatically adds an entry for that site under the Tracking Prevention Exceptions heading. Turn the switch back to On to remove the exception from the list."
              I think it may be breaking some of the sites he normally visits with it on.
