    yes it has been a decent browser since IE10 but its name is already far too tarnished
    it still had its fair share of issues as well which is another reason they decided to start over

    hmm yeah that is odd, it worked for me as well (was actually set to never by default on my laptop for some reason when i upgraded. i changed it back because i prefer putting in a password but it definitely worked when it was set to never)

  3. Brando212 added a post in a topic Edge + no extension support = failed.   

    no. and i will list the reasons
    1. Edge is a replacement for IE. mostly casual users use IE and they don't even know what extensions are
    2. Getting the base browser and new engine out took precedence so people can compare and see if it's an improvment
    3. Edge unlike IE is an app which can be updated at any time through the app store
    4. I'd rather them take their time and get extensions right then rush the support and people be very unhappy about how unstable extensions are.
    and no, the only people lack of extension support is stopping are "tech gurus" like you. (don't take this as an insult as i am the same way. need my adblock lol)

    i'm not sure that option has any effect anymore
    the option you are actually looking for is under "Settings > Accounts > Sign-in Options" and the top dropdown is what you need to change

    I have a DreamSpark key (the educational equivalent of technet) loaded on my custom tower at home & it let me upgrade without an issue so I doubt you will have any issue

    most things seem to be working great through https now but i found 1 more major issue that hopefully should be too hard to fix
    when viewing on https you cannot press prev or next to change pages on a thread

  8. Brando212 added a post in a topic Is there a way to reorg the forum sections?   

    yeah, favorites/reorganize was a mod that Neowin added. that will come back shortly I'm sure. they need to work out all the vanilla IPB bugs first though before they start adding modded features back in

    it was within the expected relm of error (couldn't think of a better way to say it)
     
    still far better than the 2 week or so downtime from a couple upgrades ago. and the site is remaining stable not crashing every few minutes like previous upgrades.

    no offense but this has probably been one of the smoothest upgrades i've seen from Neowin
     
    you've been here since 2010 you should know of some of the catastrophic previous updates Neowin has had
