    There seems to have been a brief mishap with Youtube not being available in its new design on Chromium Edge, but everything seems to have gone back to normal. Wonder who was trying what...

    Yeah it was old youtube for a day or so. I missed the dark theme but the old responsive site was welcome!

    Google is continuing ahead with their sabotage of adblockers except for enterprise users. I hope chromium edge works around it or else I'll just delete it and use brave as a chromium browser.

    So done with chrome, between the things just acting wonkey lately and well then THAT news, back to FF for me. It had a good run though and served me well for a long time. RIP

    Switched to Edge Chromium today as Chrome started acting up.

    All works fine now.

    I just hope Microsoft isn't going to disable adblockers.

    I'm still using Edge (dev) as my main driver on all my PC's - work / home / laptop. Love it.

    Some good news for an upcoming feature.
    Tested it on Canary version, works great.

    Also some of the flags I'm using:
    Code:
    go to edge://flags/
    
    #ignore-gpu-denylist
    #smooth-scrolling
    #enable-gpu-rasterization
    #enable-oop-rasterization
    #enable-lazy-image-loading
    #enable-lazy-frame-loading

    The latest build of Edge Chromium as of today 78.0.254.0 is not loading any websites or me. I don't know what happened, but I'm wondering if an update broke it. Chrome and regular Microsoft Edge work just fine.

    Version 78.0.256.0 resolves this.

    LOL well too late now. I uninstalled canary and downloaded the developer build instead. For a primary browser, the canary build is too unstable; although to be honest, I never really had many problems with it other than this last one.

    No idea. I wonder if it could have been triggered by using sleep mode? I remember my computer was sleeping before Edge chromium went kaput.

    Odd, never had the above-mentioned issue. I'm running Dev channel on both home/work PC's.

    Really liking the smooth scrolling in Chromium Edge after this last update on the dev version! :cool: It's not as smooth as Edge HTML was yet, but it's very close.

    If anyone is still on Chrome, I don't know what to tell you. Desktop Chrome is a 600 lb hog compared to Edge Chromium. I only use the mobile version of Chrome now, as I like the Google integration. But on desktop, it's Edge Chromium all the way.

    This browser is shaping up quite nicely. So far I've had not, any issues with it (considering it's a beta), although Iridium for Youtube seems to no longer work (it hasn't been updated in a long time, so it's mostly a dead project).

    The reason why I still use Chrome for mobile is specifically due to the deep Google service integration, much of which I use and enjoy. I'm less concerned about privacy and what not on mobile. Privacy is a foregone notion in a world of smartphones and digital information.
