    Edge just stopped working after a few minutes of playing with it on a Surface Pro 1. All of the store apps that depend upon it’s rendering engine (including the store itself) also no longer work, and no search options come up even though the search was used. GRRR.

    Not much of a surprise that Microsoft would make it a little tricky to get google as a default search provider. Considering they probably want to promote Bing (or Internet Explorer) with their Windows products.
