  1. Before Marshmallow 6.0, users could choose which apps to share on the fly, easily picking a different app the next time, or choosing one as the default. Not sure this is an enhancement, functionality was lost not gained.

  2. Before upgrading to Marshmallow, I somehow (cannot remember how) had the “ES Download Manager” set at the default “downloader” in Chrome. Whenever I clicked on a download link (to download a podcast or mp4 file), ES Download Manager would handle the download. Now, after upgrading to Marshmallow, whenever I download something the download is always handled by Chrome. I would much prefer to use ES Download Manager (that was installed as part of ES File Explorer).
