The problem is edge will open copilot if I click the microphone voice input button on the new tab start page or the URL/search bar in any tab. The result is co-pilot opens and starts listening to whatever I say even if I close copilot. It's a horrible user experience.
Copilot is not fast enough to perform quick lookups and searches for things that I regularly use a search engine for. It's a less efficient at performing quick searches and looking up websites or definitions. It's frustrating because I regularly use voice input to search seamlessly.
I switched to edge on all of my devices a few months ago, and I've been really loving it, but this is such a glaring oversight that I think I'm going to switch back to Chrome for now.
