General Software News, Updates & Discussions / Re: Microsoft Edge to Stop ePub Format
« Last post by Pete! on November 13, 2019, 06:20:49 PM »
After being deprived of using Edge as an epub reader, and actually being forced into trying to use some of the alternatives, I'll agree with DR M on Calibre. I just made the Calibre E-Book Viewer my epub default.

Since Calibre seems to take a relatively long time to load, I'll keep the Firefox EPUBReader extension for shorter works that can be finished quickly.

The update went smoothly but:

It seems like a step in the wrong direction when capabilities are taken away.

Edge was a pretty good epub reader, that's about all I was using it for.

So far:
The  Firefox add-on "EPUBReader" is functional but missing some of the features I liked.

Sumatra lacks an important feature that I need for my "old eyes" problem. Strangely, it has that feature for PDF files.

So far "Calibre E-Book Viewer" looks like something I could learn to like, but on a new book it seems to take a very long time to open.

Windows Insider Build 19023 Released to Fast Ring:  Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19023 | Windows Experience Blog.

In addition to issues resolved, fixes, etc. note:

Quote
We’re continuing to look at ways we can improve the update experience on Windows 10 PCs for our customers. As part of this effort, we are conducting an experiment related to how we deliver driver updates through Windows Update. During this experiment, drivers categorized as “optional” will not be automatically downloaded and installed on Windows Insider’s PCs running 20H1 Build 18980 and newer. To install any new optional drivers available for a PC that’s involved in this experiment (including drivers for new devices that might get plugged in to a PC), Insiders can go to Settings > Windows Update > Optional Updates and manually download these drivers. This experiment will be running now through November 25th, 2019.
