I'm starting to like Edge Browser

Lately, Chrome has been behaving badly, rapid flickering on some sites and slowing the computer down (a LOT!). I suspect it is related in some way to the adblocker and privacy software I'm using (Ghost, AdBlock Plus), though I haven't found any that work any better with Chrome, and I also suspect that some sites are doing this on purpose to get you to stop using adblockers.

One day last week, I'd had enough and tried Edge, just to see if it had improved any, and I was pleasantly surprised. It's smooth and fast, with a light footprint compared to Chrome, and while there is still SOME flickering, the incidence of it is greatly reduced even with the same two adblocker and privacy titles I used on Chrome.  I don't use many extensions, but the ones I like are available for Edge.

I don't particularly like how Edge handles Bookmarks, but I guess I can get used to it. I'm going to use it for a month exclusively just to see how it works for me.
