Edge opens far to many links in separate windows, and back button do not close them but only put them in the background, and no ad-blocker makes many unwanted windows open in the background! It is supposed to be able to change from Bing to Google but there is only Bing as an option in the list of alternative search engines in Edge! Whe did tey remove the gestures, back and forward, from IE in WP8.1?
Last update was supposed the fix the problem with the navigation bar not being able to hide, but the update did not remove the black bar underneath that navigation bar when removed in those apps so the update was totally pointless! Edge is still the worst browser I have ever used, on PC bookmarks in folders are totally unusable, and on the phone there is no forward button and there is no ad-blocker! There is still no possibility to use "quiet hours" in Sweden... because it is a part of Cortana that is not yet available in Sweden! On my L 640 the home page always take forever to load, and with apps in folders it takes even longer to open, so Windows Phone/Mobile have never ever been a fast smooth OS!

Windows phone updates are really very slow and very bad. i'm using lumia 730 and have lots of app crashing issues. App store is also just very poor. increasing apps on ios and play store makes the gap even worse. and windows seems to do nothing about it.
Microsoft has to solve the apps problem as soon as possible. It should be the top priority. Ive been using windows for the last three years and lack of good quality apps is pushing me to android.
The things that I'll miss will the great keyboard and people's hub
I am very pleased with the many updates coming to Windows 10 Mobile since it was rolled out. I have received about three big updates so far. The OS is also improving day by day, nevertheless the App store looks so good and so promising now with improves search capabilities and a much better look now. Congratulations to Microsoft! Now the next thing Microsoft should do is to bring thin phones with a different design, also get rid of the on the screen navigation icons, touch navigation icons outside the screen will do wonders for Win. 10. Finally I think Win 10 will get many followers if Microsoft can allow for more customisation of the tiles by allowing users to switch from tiles to icons whenever they want to.
I open my apps with ie, just change it in the default browser setting, (setting/system/default app/internet browser) and like magic everything including apps defaults to your chosen browser, except Cortana but I totally get that and agree she shouldn't.
I like edge unfortunately no extentions so no adblocker and the new tabs wont let me select the page I want when I'm open a new tab, personally I use my home page but microsoft wont let me.), also when on multi monitor moving tabs around isn't even close to ie yet. These issues for me stop me using edge but it opens and works fast and to be fair on you tube works even better than chrome does, speed wise.
Looking forward to the new update. I occasionally receive Windows 10 mobile updates on my Lumia 930 so they're improving the OS all the time.
new may update already brings some huge changes from battery drainage problem to addition of 60 fps and 120 fps video recordings, hope that some hidden features will also be unlocked..
Plenty. Tried at least 5 of them back in 8.1 days but right now Edge is quite ok.
