Using a surface pro. When the touch keyboard opens, and I begin to type stuff, it doesn't present auto complete options at the top of the keyboard or spelling corrections.

 

Incorrectly spelled words do not have the red squiggly line. For someone who heavily relies on touch input, this is critical.

 

When the soft keyboard is open and you want to scroll the window around, chredge forces the page  to scroll back to the bottom (or the end of the text in the window you are typing). It won't keep the keyboard open while you are trying to move the page.

 

Lastly, while text is selected and long press, the soft keyboard will not show up.

 

See this video capture I took from my surface device https://youtu.be/QHjPzzTxEkA

In the video and screen shots, the Original UWP Edge is on the left, Chredge is on the right.
