I just installed some updates, and I did not notice there was one called Microsoft Edge Update for Windows 8.1,  It installed Microsoft Edge.  Now I have it, Internet Explorer, and Firefox.  Should I uninstall Edge or Internet Explorer?

Hello SLGray


I see no reason to uninstall any of your browsers especially if you want to be able to replicate a bug declared by an user.
But if you want to get rid of one of your Microsoft browsers, i would strongly recommend to keep Edge

Maybe this page will be helpful ? -> Lifecycle FAQ - Internet Explorer and Edge

I haven't used ME since 2010, version 7 or 8 i didn't remember.

The good news is, I can use both Chrome and Microsoft Edge (Chromium) to work together.

I will keep all three for testing things with the forums.  I will just use Firefox for normal usage.

I dont think you can get rid of I.E sadly, but if you could you definitely should get rid of IE... that browser needed to be dead and buried years ago if you ask me.

I wonder why it did not just replace IE on my computer.  It replaces it in Windows 10.

Edge is supposed to replace IE, since Microsoft itself considered IE as being outdated.
There should be tutorials on the web that explain how to remove IE from certain Windows versions

Well actually Windows 10 has both Edge and IE, though Edge is the default. I am guessing it is harder in 8 cause they coded Edge to work with Windows 10 specificlly.

Hello,
Microsoft Edge (Chronium) it's a better option than Internet Explorer. Various experts has realized a perfomance test and results are very good.
