Using Edge right now.

I never use Chrome with this forum.
What's up with that?

Chrome and Microsoft Edge are both based on Chromium which is open source software.

I don't think Chromium-based Edge is actually part of Win 10 yet (it's not in the latest version 1903), although you can download a developer version and run it alongside the existing Edge. It may be integrated in 2020.

P.S. I don't use Chrome on the Forum either (because the text is illegible in Chrome), and when I do use Chrome for other things I'm using Version 75.0.3770.100.

I don't use win 10 or edge. I do always use Chrome and the text renders perfectly for me so we are left with a mystery :dontknow:

"Illegible" might be a slight exaggeration, but text in Chrome always seems to be grey: there is little contrast. IMHO Edge is best for text!

I think you can run Edge in Win 7, if you want to try it  :)
