Microsoft’s latest browser Edge for the Windows 10 system has recently been through benchmarking trials against Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
The testing devices
Using Jet Stream and Octane benchmarks, Edge’s technical preview of build 10586.11 was tested on Lumia 640. Another testing device was second-gen Motorola Moto G LTE, powered by Android 5.1 Lollipop. Both Motorola and Lumia come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 300 possessors. Additionally, the handsets include the Adreno 305 GPU with a display resolution of 1280×720.
What does it mean?
It is worth mentioning, however, that tests were not 100% accurate because certain components, like memory chips, could impact the results. Never the less, the general conclusion is that Edge’s latest release can perform on par with Android. Even though Google is considered to be a leader when it comes to browsers and web technology, it seems that Firefox and Microsoft are quite competitive.
It appears that Edge browser users on Windows 10 may surf faster than those with phones running on Windows 8.1. Do you prefer Edge to other browsers? Have you noticed the speed increase yet?
