Don't try to frame the false dichotomy that the only existent browsers to choose from are either Chrome or Edge. There are many more popular browsers than Edge out there, such as Firefox, Opera, Brave, and Safari, as well as various open source forks (Palemoon, Chromium, etc.) The point of the parent comment is that to a privacy minded user, Edge would be the LAST option to consider for someone switching from Chrome, especially due to Microsoft's history of aggressive spying "analytics" as well as general anti-competitive behavior. And if you believe competition is good, why on Earth would you chose a browser that locks you in to the Windows monopoly?

Some people believe Chromium offers the best browsing experience as well as security. For those people there is now a choice.
