Edge is a horrible browser - just like Safari. Can't stand either of them.
I understand people don't like it, doesn't change the fact that you can run AdBlockPlus on it.
Unfortunately, one of Edge's major problems is actual web sites treating it differently (like IE). MANY (actually most) sites that don't work correctly in Edge is because THEY are coded wrong. If you make Edge send agent string that it is another browser like Chrome, the site works fine. This is a problem with the sites, not Edge. If they receive the same site as Chrome, it displays the page the same. Personally I use nothing but Edge on my PC, I use Chrome on mobile devices (iPads, and Android phones).
If someone has problems with Edge, some research is needed, not just labelling it "horrible" without actual tech reasons. It has several features I like, and since I work in IT, and support infrastructure that allows remote access for many tens of thousands of users, I see pretty much every device config out there, both Enterprise wide, and Home PC/Equipment.
I know there are other Edge issues, but it also has many benefits, and if something doesn't work for me, I first try agent string, then I will use a different browser to test.
To the OP, if you do install AdBlock Plus, be aware that it is set to allow what they call 'non-intrusive' ads. You can disable that setting
a few seconds after you install it.
Agreed, I have played with the settings in AdBlock Plus, and it is quite versatile. Like on this page, I don't mind the "Hot Deals" bar that is actually coded into this site. But when sites drop ads from Google or other Ad services into a page, based on whatever algorithm, and your device has to wait for all those to load from who knows what other site, I block them.
