norton not compatible with edge windows 10

Ok first time at this. I down loaded windows 10, two days ago. At first Norton 360 wouldn't work so got a fix from a remote tec, who took about two hours to install Norton. Thought everything was fine... Now, I'm being told that Norton isn't compatible with Microsoft Edge browser and that I need to run  a browser such as fire fox, google chrome or explorer. So, I believe that I'm not safe whilst browsing on Edge. I was thinking of disabling Norton and allowing windows defender to the job until Norton is compatible. Is this true any one want to shine a light on this? Cheers.

hi Worselgummage

The fault if any to be attributed is not that of Norton, Edge does not support extensions at present. Microsoft have said they will work on this and introduce extensions in the future whenever that may be.

Thanks for the reply... Super Bot Obliterator​.

I'm sure Norton and Microsoft will come to a solution soon enough. Also, I'm not looking to blame anyone. I just want safe internet browsing. So, I take it I'm not safe till Edge supports extensions. I actually like the service Norton provides and I hope they come up with a solution soon. I think I should will run Windows defender till Norton makes an announcement. Thankyou for your reply.

You can still use IE11, Firefox or Chrome until Edge and Norton are compatible.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

For the time being I just made Internet Explorer my default browser. Still protected by Norton that way.
