Experience with MS Edge?
My Microsoft IE 8.1 browser keeps telling me to download their Edge.
Any experience with this?
Pros & Cons?
Is there a cost? Couldn't tell.
If so, how much?
Thanks your advice!

I have never used Edge. I use Firefox. It states that it's a free download for Edge, so I don't think there is any cost. There are a few articles about the new and improved version of Edge that you can read if you search.

I use it all the time. No problems with it at all.

IE is outdated and is barely being supported. Edge is free and is the solution now being pushed by Microsoft on Windows, although there are clearly other alternatives. I personally use both Edge and Chrome, depending upon the web page (some work better on one or the other).

From the Microsoft website: "Support ended 1/12/16 for Internet Explorer (IE) 10 and older. Security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support continues for IE 11 on Windows 7, 8.1, and 10."
