    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.

    Great post, although I would also note that adding word verification to your comments might backfire. I understand wanting to cut down on spam, but it also adds another barrier for the commenter, and I think it’s more beneficial to make commenting as easy as possible. I would recommend starting without it, and if you find you have a large spam problem, adding it in later. But I’ve been on Blogger for over a year at my current blog, and even without word verification have only gotten a handful of spam all caught by Blogger’s filters
