Microsoft Edge Chromium keeps closing on Windows Server 2012 R2

Recommended Posts

I've tried both the consumer and enterprise version of Edge but they keep randomly closing. Is there any fixes or should I just use a different browser?

You may want to enable Quality Windows Audio Video Experience. This is what fixes the Discord app problems.

Maybe try a different browser?

Edge is crummier than Internet Explorer IMO. At least there are still reasons for using IE for some things.

Why though? 

2012 R2 is same code base as 8.1 and I am running it on 8.1

Why not just use SRWare Iron?

I did use SRW I before but an insight on it was that it had more issues being Closed Source and not as updated as Chromium which is open source build and possibly be tweaked to have similar features. 

Again this is a while back when I was looking at Chrome alternatives and did SRW I, Comodo Dragon, Water Fox, Chromium. Vivalid etc.

It is closed source but AFAIK it's Chrome minus the privacy clobbers.

My only complaint is they've followed Chromium too blindly. I still use v70 from 2018, because Chromium v71 completely removed the original Chrome style theme and now forces metro UI. Makes me want to vomit. No thanks.

If it were open source, I figured Roytam could just fork the source code for 70 and make a new browser, but that doesn't seem likely to happen now.

No it doesn’t seem likely, because roytam1 makes builds of Firefox-based browsers that could have supported Windows XP if the upstream developers had deemed it worthwhile. Chromium is another kettle of fish. In another year or so, the Chromium Project may expunge support for Windows 7 (and perhaps 8.1 at the same time) just as they did for XP and Vista in April 2016. When that day arrives, some browser developers will swing into action because Win7 will still have many users and Chrome is more popular than Firefox.

I guess that could be good/bad. I really hope some other riled up devs decide to fork v70 instead of the latest version at the time, and then patch it with security updates.
