Home » Edge crashes during Microsoft’s presentation, Chrome saves the day

Recently, Microsoft hosted its Ignite convention where it got the opportunity to not only show people what’s in the pipeline, but also sway potential customers and consumers towards their own line of products.

One of Microsoft’s attempts to prove the reliability of its services didn’t go so well, however, when the Microsoft Azure Cloud service presentation was interrupted multiple times by Microsoft Edge which kept crashing.

At least it was funny?

After trying to work through the crashes a couple of times, the Microsoft employee on-stage had no choice and needed to download Google Chrome. You can imagine that this was a source of plenty laughs from the crowd and the employee also joined in by laughing.

Microsoft Edge benefited tremendously from the Fall Creators Update which was recently released for Windows 10. Microsoft added a lot of improvements to their software in order to make Edge as efficient and reliable as possible. Unfortunately, it would seem that they still have some work to do, since some web pages still give their Internet Explorer replacement some headaches.

Handling the situation

The situation was dire and it’s worth appreciating how the employee kept his cool during the presentation, even in the tense moments when Edge would not quit crashing and he was forced to download Chrome. He even made a couple of jokes about it, ultimately admitting that Edge has work to do on improving on its own infrastructure.

Still a good browser

Even with this little slip-up, it would be a mistake not to take Edge seriously as it is a great browser with plenty of features to check out. While Chrome might still be miles ahead of its competitors, Edge has demonstrated in the past that it has the potential of catching up and even take the lead.

Missing the point

With all the excitement around this little incident, it’s hard to say if consumers were left with the appropriate impression regarding the Azure Cloud service, which was the whole point of the presentation in the first place.
