Con AMP pages are loaded through Google
All AMP pages are loaded though Google's servers, meaning Google can log your browsing history and theoretically manipulate website contents.
Con Microsoft still tracking you by default (Like Google with Chrome)
Microsoft Edge collects less information than chrome, but still collecting data about you and your interests.
Con Unlike the legacy version, it doesn't have the option to set aside tabs which was a very useful feature.
It does give you the option to give feedback for people who want setting tabs aside back but I don't think they're going to add it. I might be wrong though.
Con Synchronization between PC and phone is weak
Although synchronization between computers is similar to chrome, synchronization between PCs - phone is weak.
