    Isn't Edge just an MS branded Chrome browser?

    My company still uses IE because that's all apparently our web version of Deltek (for our timesheets) uses.

    Then again, they also deployed two different versions of Firefox to all users and then blocked the ability to update them...
    We are moving away from IE11 to Edge Chromium and, in some instances, actual Chrome. The problem is that a few of our browser-based apps had code added for the non-industry standards required by IE and the newer developers can’t figure out how to unwind that code for 100% correct operation in the newer browsers that actually use industry standards. Then users report issues when their app fails and my team has to explain to people they need to use the older browser. And users are stupid so they don’t understand until the third trip or more through the wringer.

    • My experiences with Edge has been terrible. I have no idea whether it was bad to start or whether it was solid and then MS ruined it, but I never use it if I can possibly help it.

                  • Was going to start pulling all of my recordings off my DVR this morning. One show in and Comcast goes out. Got word it won't be fixed until at least 5 pm tonight. The worst part is this isn't as easy as just copy paste. You've got to run through all of them and that takes time.

                    I've got to say, I've had much better luck with Comcast than most. But the last two months have been not great.

                    Saving them because there were a couple of these shows that aren't on anymore and others were live events. I'd like to be able to get a new box and renegotiate the cost. Can't do either without pulling the shows off. The box is so old it still has a hard drive in it. They've switched to a garbage cloud system that deletes recordings after a year. :-/

                    Anyways, it grinds my gears.

                      • My company has been trying to renew my 3-year visa since February. In the interim they have been doing 60-day temp visas. I advised them in May that I would be traveling to the US in July (with provided dates) and that not only would I need my passport back in time, but also that all documentation and stamps be proper for travel to the U.S. and back again.

                        Just found out that my current temp visa does not allow for me to return to the Philippines unless I have a return ticket purchased to the U.S., or unless I go to the nearest Philippines consulate which is in Chicago. I advised that either solution is fine by me, but the company will be on hook for either buying the return ticket (and eating the cost when it goes unused) or paying to fly me to Chicago, taxi to the consulate, put me up in a hotel if required, flying me back to MSP and paying for taxi back. I probably won't hear anything until Sunday night CST at the earliest.

                        Tuesday I move the boy into the dorm and my plan was go to go our cabin Wed - Fri but that is now likely not an option. Weeeee.

                        • Roommates.

                          I've found my makeup missing, perfume missing, food missing, and more. Last night, I was woken up by someone screaming. Asking nicely to stop does nothing.
