Does anyone else here, hate this piece of s**t, as much as I do? If someone likes it, that's fine. It's like trying to throw away a boomerang! I've uninstalled it something like 20 times. It seems that every time I look away, or there's a big update, it gets reinstalled. Couldn't do a complete deletion this time from the control panel. Had to use Revo Uninstaller.:-(

Edge Chromium seems just about like all the other Chrome based browsers I've tried.

I don't love it due to its overriding promotion of tabs, but I use a two-handed method to open all links in new windows so it's OK - at least until someone creates an extension to simply open all links in a new window.

Just right-click on a link and choose Open in New Window from the menu.

In Chrome, Control+T, opens a new tab.

Left Shift or left Ctrl + a left click opens links in a NEW window. I'll use these until someone creates an acceptable extension.

Including Edge, I have five Chromium-based browsers installed (Edge, Chrome, CCleaner Browser, Avast Secure Browser, Brave) each with slightly different settings or extensions for specific purposes. I have no particular problems with any of them.

CCleaner Browser, Avast Secure Browser

CCleaner Browser (which I've never heard of), by Piriform.
