9. The DVD is dead
A huge change from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 is the new web browser, Microsoft Edge. If anything can persuade us to switch, this is probably it.
Internet Explorer has had some serious competition over the last decade, firstly from Firefox and then from Chrome. Instead of streamlining and concentrating on speed, each version of IE became more and more bloated.
Microsoft Edge, the dev team have claimed, is an attempt to build a new browser from the ground up. It certainly looks the part, with clean, simple lines and a minimal UI. There's no home icon - but you can share pages with a single click. Favorites, History, Downloads and Read Later items are all tucked away in a new sidebar. It's clean, feels fast and performs much better than IE in HTML5 tests.
