    I think microsoft will do a lot with their own fork of chrome. I can clearly see them offering MS specific features in it.

    Just like Chrome, Edge is collecting lots of data too. Just Google it, you'll get dozen of proofs.

    I suspect the majority will use it because they see it as part of the O.S. while the informed minority are likely to stick with other browsers. On the other hand I wouldn't completely dismiss it until I've seen it.

    I will still prefer to use Firefox. It is safe and secure, and even respects my privacy.

    I'm using it for about two weeks and satisfied with it.
    Removed CCleaner's Browser just after 2 days of the trial.
