First of all its very dangerous to keep all your data with one company, especially knowing fact that Google is data company and Microsoft is Software company. Though Google does sell software, but the architecture of company is to basically snoop around all your data, categorize it and monetize it.
So I always wanted to go away from Chrome and use as less as Google products as possible.
Edge is nothing but exactly same browser with your private data being stored with Microsoft as opposed to Google.
I also feel that I am no longer being constantly watched, (I know about incognito but we don't use incognito all the time). I just didn't like how Google was learning what all I am browsing and finally on Google Mobile Search page, Google started displaying My Interesting Articles.
Though Microsoft is advertising about being fast and being more batter friendly, privacy was the biggest factor I wanted to migrate.
This was the move that I hated the most, after Google collected and is still collecting all the data from internet, Google decided to do something that will affect everyone except Google itself. So Google wanted to make money by tracking users but didn't want anyone else to make money by doing same. (I am not advocating tracking, what I mean is, Law & Order should decide this and not the Google). This was the time I really wanted to come out of Google.
Whenever I open Task Manager and see Performance, I see constant data being sent to Google even if I have no tab open with any website related to Google.
I don't have problem with that, because their primary focus is selling Software vs selling my private information. So Microsoft is tracking only to improve my user experience.
Great, no difference... everything is same,
The only difference and pain is lack of all the Chrome extensions, but I am sure they will soon arrive on Edge store as soon as Microsoft fixes Edge Marketplace. Currently adding new extension to Microsoft Edge Store is pain, as their listed steps does not work, they want you to signup as partner and that I did, but after that the workflow does not work as mentioned in documentation.
But you can always load extensions from custom source for your own development, which is acceptable as of now.
I am sure Microsoft will commit to provide timely updates, and keep Edge up and running. This is little concern as somehow Microsoft starts cross platform and ends up focusing only on Windows.
Future is bright, secure and Private !!
