Norton and MS Edge issue still has no answer for customers of both vendors

There is no definitive information available from Norton as to when Microsoft Edge with be fully supported. Microsoft's position appears to still be firm on moving forward with Edge. I don't need Edge and actually prefer Norton security supported browsers such as IE, Chrome, Firefox, etc. I keep hearing Microsoft intends to retire IE at some point. If so, that is a concern for me. Please determine and provide a forward looking position as to what Norton/Microsoft customers should do now and for the future. From everything I've read over time both Norton and Microsoft are pointing the blame on each other. As vendors, both companies should step up to the plate and take responsibility for their common customers and provide a specific direction.

Microsoft has to grant AV providers access/permissions to provide toolbars.

Symantec is not alone here, as other providers are in the same situation.

All: The problem is actually a Microsoft issue lying within their submissions process. When their products change vendors have to keep up with that process and find a stranglehold on getting their extensions submitted and allowed usage on the OS. Seems to me MS is saying Edge is a priority but more than 2 years later you tell me!!! If MS strangles other vendor products they will just focus on support for other browsers and ignore Edge is the bottom line.
