    I was using my future mother-in-law's iPad 3 and yeah, it's a bit more touch friendly using Safari but I think the experience is still better with Edge under Windows 10. Media content loads right away, I can go back a page and not have to completely re-load it (Safari is the worst when it comes to caching websites).

    They were trying to make it more universal so that you can access the same options in tablet or desktop modes. I'm alright with the task bar. It only takes up a few pixels and it lets me switch between open apps via gestures or virtual buttons.

    Which way? In landscape or portrait mode? The iPad is primarily advertised as being used in portrait mode, same with the Nexus 9. Look at Samsung advertising for their 10"+ tablets and you'll see it being used in landscape mode, same with the Surface 3 and Pro 3 (same with every other Surface model before those). I don't think taking an extra 0.05 seconds to scroll to an app is that big of a deal.

    So far I am really not liking the battery life. I am only getting like 5 hours of battery life at best with W10 and I even think there is some drain too. And don't get me started on Edge. While Metro IE had it's issue, Edge and different issues that cheese me off even more. In fact as I was typing this Edge froze for no bloody reason, and the ad on the page changed and a video started playing. Like really? If only Chrome wasn't a battery hog(and lesser extent ram hog).

    Good old desktop IE is still there for you to use.

    I am not a fan of desktop IE really, and when I was using it on my Yoga RT, it was just as leggy(written on purpose). On S3 it was a bit better, but still not a fan.

    Edge brings out the best in us.

    Edge is better? I'm not a fan either (of any browser actually), just seems a lot better than edge right now, without the battery problems of chrome.

    Don't know about the Windows version (is there even a MUI version?) but on Android it is the most resource efficient browser. I'd imagine that is a design concept for those pesky Norwegians, so ceteris paribus it should be that on Windows as well.
