https://windowsreport.com/microsoft-edge-stable-download/
I installed this tonight, running great and much faster than Edge classic...which I felt was faster than Chrome so it was good to see increased speed againPasswords and Favourites also transferred over without fault  :) No Translation app/extension available as of yet that I can find though everything else seems to be functioning well, AdGuard also working fine in the new browser 8)

This works. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/google-translate/aapbdbdomjkkjkaonfhkkikfgjllcleb
I have several Chrome extensions added. :)

Thanks for the link Bob :) A bit of a search around and I found out how to enable Microsoft Edge Translate https://winaero.com/blog/enable-translator-in-microsoft-edge-chromium/

Upgrade to Windows 10 free, here's how


I've not done this yet but plan to after making a current system image of my Win 7 system. If anyone else wants to try it, I'd recommend downloading the entire program rather than upgrading your existing installation. Somehow, upgraded OS's seem to be more problematic.

There is a Windows 10 thread. :) Information might be more helpful there.

Yes, you're right. If a mod wants to move it, that's fine.
