Hi,
Maybe MS will also get rid of funky adobe flash player finally too I hate it being built into 10.
One thing for sure if MS designs anything browser wise it will bite no matter what it is a cloned chrome or not

I use opera which is built on chromium. However I am open to trying new things. I tried Vivaldi but I didn't like it. It was too buggy for a daily driver.

I thought it didn't have them at all until a few months ago when someone corrected me. Maybe this is why I thought it didn't. Since it has the main stuff I need I could actually use it but why would I?

Took ~ 1 year from win10/edge release until extension support was official (preview was march 2016). That was way too long and with too little fanfare.

But that's not "malevolence"; that's just their inability to create a browser people would like more or, at least, as much as Chrome.
That's odd because this place is full of threads claiming the exact opposite, where at every windows update the settings they picked were somehow "forgotten" and reverted to the defaults. Microsoft Edge shortcuts/icons placed back onto the desktop (pretty sure there's a thread just about that), the default for opening something web based back to Edge, some banner that pops up when you try to install another web browser claiming Edge is the fastest with images of speedometers and Edge being implied that it's faster because the needle is further clockwise on the speedometer. I've experienced two of those things myself.

Regardless Microsoft has been complete crap in the browser game for a while, they dropped the ball after IE6.

When it comes to security, Firefox wins hands down right now and likely will for some time to come. Most exploits and the way a lot of people get infected nowadays isn't from downloading an .exe off Kazaa, they come in the form of malicious scripts. Firefox has the best support for security related extensions, notably script blockers which seriously up ones game in staying safe online.

Well, perhaps the behavior is different among versions. Maybe Home and Pro are more "rebellious"...

That being the case, I guess it's probably the biggest reason why people got fed up with Edge.

I would remove Vista from that list and add Groove Music.
