Microsoft Edge “crashed”? It's because of Google search!


If you use Microsoft Edge with Google search, you must have had the browser go down constantly for a few hours. This was a problem recognized by Microsoft, where it admitted that Edge was “crashing” whenever a Google search was done.

In fact, having been a “victim” of this error, it was a joke. As soon as I touched the Enter key to assume the search in the address bar, Edge disappeared. However, if I switched the search engine to Bing, everything would be fine.

Meanwhile, the Microsoft development page shared a solution on Twitter: turn off search suggestions. As a shortcut, you can put in the address bar “edge: // settings / search”. However, Microsoft claims that the problem is now temporarily resolved.

Are you seeing Edge crash when trying to type into the address bar? The team is looking into it! In the meantime, as a workaround, please turn off Search Suggestions here: edge: // settings / search. We’ll follow up once we have more!

Apparently, Microsoft has found a quick fix, but the problem is not yet fully resolved. Therefore, be careful if you use Microsoft Edge with Google search, do not risk losing important work or research out of the blue.

The most funny thing is that Microsoft Edge is based on Chromium, where Google Chrome is also based. Therefore, this aggressive error is unusual, almost suggesting that Microsoft intends to convince users to use Bing and not Chrome.
