" BTW, I wasn’t trying to sell you on Edge …" Let me rephrase: As far as choice of browser.
Thanks for your time caldercay!
I just can’t believe there still isn’t an Android browser with basic functionality you take for granted on desktop. They all lack something.
But yes, different tools for different uses on different platforms. Microsoft browser’s default use is for government web sites. If you don’t want to find yourself on a government website clicking the final submit button with no effect whatsoever after having filled out and uploaded everything then use microsoft browser on Windows. Now let me mention some of what I have installed on Android: dolphin browser as the only full featured Android browser (now I remember why I used to use it) UC browser, Pure browser and Puffin browser - have bookmarks import/export functionality (but lack other so I don’t really use them in favor of Vivaldi). Vivaldi as my current favorite due to good sync and back/forward buttons. Tor Browser & Orbot. Also Brave - back on topic - Brave feedback: I decided keep and use Brave in spite of currently non existent sync because (as I recently found out) it let’s me play YouTube music or audio from any other website while switching to another window/app or turning off the screen. Functionality that is available on Android but deliberately disabled for YouTube music by google (owns both YouTube and android) so that they can charge $10/month for it.
Finally, since I already mentioned them, I dropped memex and raindrop in favor of tagpacker.com which let’s me import bookmark html files and bulk edit folders/tags for free.
BTW I just stumbled onto slax Linux. It let’s you run live CD/DVD/USB stick/SSD/SD. It has the option load to and run from RAM and make “persistent” changes to the live media fairly easily. It would be fun to get it running on Android.
