The Microsoft Edge team has been busy, it has been continuously optimizing performance since first adding the new browser to Windows 10.
According to Microsoft, the results were as below;
- On WebKit Sunspider, Edge is 112% faster than Chrome
- On Google Octane, Edge is 11% faster than Chrome
- On Apple JetStream, Edge is 37% faster than Chrome
The Brinkmann team decided to add more benchmarks and more browsers to get a more complete picture of browser performances on Windows 10.
From the tests, Microsoft beat the competition in the JetStream and Sunspider tests, but it performed the worst of all eight browsers in the Peacekeeper test.
It also lost out to Chrome and Firefox two times each, leading Brinkmann to conclude that “Microsoft has improved the performance of the default Windows browser by a lot, but since Edge is not beating all browsers in all benchmarks, it cannot be said that it is the fastest browser on Windows 10.”
