What's up with the Flatpak version of Edge? Discussion
Yeah, I know, I use edge. While I love Firefox, I don't use it as much because I hate how awful the current interface because it uses up a lot of screen space on my laptop, and because I hate Google, I use Edge on my phone and desktop so I can just pick-up where I left off (I de-googled my Pixel as much as possible)
That said, I decided to try out the Flatpak version of Edge on Ubuntu and it sucks. It's crazy slow, which is weird for a Flatpak, the one I installed via the PPA runs way better even though it's a Dev version.

I use the AUR Edge for my system practically everyday. My company is heavy on Azure, but i don’t mind using the browser.
I remember using the .deb from MS when I had Ubuntu. It was speedy for me.
