A lot of my work is with non-accessible PDFs that are produced by
my university. The way Edge handles them generally works much
better. For example, Acrobat will tend to just lump all of the
text on one page together, whereas Edge seems to at least try to
break it in to paragraphs. And Acrobat's interpretation of
mathematical symbols is often very garbled, whereas Edge often
seems to correctly represent them to NVDA.

There is an objective comparison that can be made,
however. For example, unless this has changed in recent
versions of Acrobat Reader, it didn’t decolumnize columns in
logical reading order properly enough of the time to be a
problem. I don’t work with PDF documents much, but when I
have, I have found that decolumnized documents often have
information in the wrong place.
Using OCR often helps greatly with this problem. Perhaps
Edge decolumnizes PDF documents much better. I hope so.

When it comes to matters of preference, "better"
is relative. If Edge works, and is most pleasant, for you
then, by all means, that's what you should use.
I do not know whether the following works in the
stable version of Edge, but in the Dev versions hitting
ALT+SHIFT+I will open a feedback mechanism that is dedicated
strictly to Edge. If something has broken that previously
worked, I strongly suggest you log feedback. If that method
does not work within Edge, then do so via the Windows 10
Feedback Hub app.
