Microsoft Edge

Mozilla has recently release Firefox Quantum. I supposed because it's supposed to be a quantum leap in web browser technology. Does this means that Scott Bakula will show up in your web browser at critical moments to help guide you through your web browsing experience? Nope. Sorry. It just means the Firefox has a brand new web engine that's been redesigned to similar to Chrome but better. If you haven't been taking Firefox seriously for a while now is the time to try it again. My experience has been great so far. Not only have I started to use Firefox again but it's now my web browser of choice.

Recently Windows went through one of those comically long updates and loaded the release notes for the update into Microsoft Edge web browser. Neat! I thought to myself. I haven't tried Microsoft's web browser in a long time and I know they've been working on it. If Firefox can improve so much maybe Edge can as well.

The first thing I noticed in Edge is that the scroll wheel on my mouse doesn't work. It seems to work everywhere else just not in Edge. How did they even do that? Well, I'm not going to debug that. Not now I have a Firefox that doesn't suck. Maybe I'll try Edge again in another 5 years or so. You know, when they've figured out how to get the mouse wheel scrolling work.
