I can't imagine any reason why I'd want to do this.

Because it's faster than Chrome. If you are willing to use Chrome, Microsoft is the lesser evil of the two evils and Edge is the better browser.

If speed is the be all an end all of your browsing experience just use lynx.

And Brave is better than either. So again, why would you?

Because most people aren't as anal retentive as you in making their choices on such narrow criteria.

You're the one who was arguing speed was the primary criteria, not us.

And Brave is still better than either Chrome or Edge.

Yeah, I'm the only one who listed any measure of criteria. Answering the simple question, "Why would you?", that was followed with comment on a lack of imagination as to why someone would, without any reasons why someone wouldn't.

A better question would be "Why was this article posted?" if it doesn't appeal to the limited target audience here.

I wasn't asking why the article was posted. It certainly belongs on a Linux site as it has something to do with Linux. I left MS long ago for the freedom of Linux, so I couldn't imagine why I would ever add something from MS back into it.

"If Microsoft ever does applications for Linux it means I've won."

Fair point. But as far as I'm concerned, Linus won a long time ago.

The criteria that matter most are matters of individual preference, not performance.

I can't imagine any reason why you'd want to do this, either. Everyone uses computers differently. What works best for one person, may be a total hindrance for another. Microsoft's one-size-fits-all approach is the reason many of us switched to Linux in the first place.
