Edge has managed to reinvent itself and gain a place in the browser market. Microsoft wants this to be able to have the same impact that Internet Explorer has had and thus dominate the entire Internet and the navigation we do on it.
However, it is now experiencing a major problem that prevents it from being used. The complaints are many and Microsoft has already taken over the Edge problem. Fortunately, there is a solution, even if it is temporary.
The new Edge is in serious trouble
The problem that now arises seems to be simple to replicate and affects most Edge users. When opening a new tab and typing any word, the browser is simply closed, without any error message.
There does not seem to be a direct cause for this problem to arise, but there is an idea that seems logical. It only affects who has Google as a search engine and when trying to submit search suggestions. Edge encounters a problem, which prevents the browser from working, probably in the communication that is made.
Are you seeing Edge crash when trying to type into the address bar? The team is looking into it! In the meantime, as a workaround, please turn off Search Suggestions here: edge: // settings / search. We’ll follow up once we have more!

Microsoft recognized the problem and has a solution
Microsoft has already admitted the failure, assuming the problem, without revealing its cause or when it will be resolved. However, it presented a solution that everyone can apply immediately and thus resolve the fault and allow using the Edge.
They must type in the address bar edge: // settings / search to access the privacy and service area. Here, you should disable the option Show search and site suggestions using my entered characters.
Solution may come up very soon for this browser
The problem immediately disappears and the Edge can be used as normal. It will no longer present search suggestions, which is thought to be the source of this serious problem on the Edge.
Microsoft should, however, fix the problem with your browser, bringing back the suggestions. At that time, whoever applied this solution must repeat the process to activate the proposed terms to search in the browser.
