Microsoft is making its final touch- ups on its latest browser. Microsoft claims it is faster than Safari and Chrome. Microsoft ran a benchmark test created by Apple and Google, and Microsoft’s Edge came out the fastest between the two widely known browsers, Google’s Chrome and Apple’s Safari.
Gabe Aul, Head of the Windows Insider program, posted on the windows blog about the performance of the new edge. He’s quoted saying on his blog:
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
We’re really pleased with those performance gains and we hope that you’ll enjoy faster browsing with Microsoft Edge along with the many great features we’ve added over the last several builds.”
EdgeHTML, the new source code Microsoft is using, is getting rid of old I.E. source coding. The new source coding was written with web standards and interoperability with modern browsers. When it comes to the performance of the WebGL API, the Edge beat out FireFox and Chrome.
The Edge is a great feature being added to Microsoft 10, and seems to be the best feature of this new operating system. Microsoft’s Edge is a major update to the fossilized Internet Explorer. The Edge is giving precedence to amazing innovation in technology.
190 countries are looking forward to the release of Windows 10 on July 29, 2015.
