I’m still on Edge, and I’m still happier than drab, arrogant cocksucking Google Chrome (or to be more accurate and less marketable and buzzy: Alphabet Chrome).
Up until this morning I was fucking irked by its default setting of incorrect Yanklish spellings of English. A quick Google ..no not really!!!! A quick Bing search was all it took to find out how to adjust the autocorrect within the browser to remove “English United States” altogether, so English is spelt properly, although persistent irritation is caused by the word “customize” glaring at you when you hang around this area. This of course looks like a child attempting to spell “customise”. Presumably he thought it was “sick” to put a Z in there instead of the correct “s” – much like they’d put “kidz” to try and be cool.
Also nailed was the equally annoying default trait of suspending tabs that haven’t been used for a while. This is to “save resources”. Mate, I don’t have a fucking puny little fucking laptop with a Celeron processor and 2GB RAM in it. I built a fucking great gaming beast thanks very much. I don’t need any ‘resources saving’.
Turned out that in fact it has imported all my Chrome passwords and logins – I just needed to be signed into my Microsoft account specifically to have access to them. This is also a bit of an annoyance though, as right now it seems to default back to “you are a complete stranger – I don’t know you” whenever you open Edge up fresh. I’ll have another look around to hopefully nail this issue too.
But overall I’m happy. It’s different, it’s competent, and most importantly of all I think, it isn’t fucking Google.
