Windows 10’s Edge Browser is Best for Battery Life

With the launch of latest Windows operating system, Windows 10, Microsoft has integrated Edge Browser with it and removing support for Internet Explorer Browser. Windows 10 by Microsoft is a personal computer operating system as part of the Windows NT family of operating systems. It was officially unveiled in September 2014 following a brief demo at Build 2014. The first version of the operating system entered a public beta testing process in October 2014, leading up to its consumer release on July 29, 2015.

With Windows 10, Microsoft introduces a new default web browser, Microsoft Edge. It features a new standards-compliant rendering engine forked from Trident, annotation tools, and offers integration with other Microsoft platforms present within Windows 10. Internet Explorer 11 is maintained on Windows 10 for compatibility purposes, but is deprecated in favor of Edge and will no longer be actively developed.

But with the fall of Edge Browser, the Windows 10 team has decided to promote their Edge browser in a comparison video. The video checks the power usage of competitor browsers like Chrome, Firefox & Opera vs Edge. Chrome’s the worst, followed by Firefox, then Opera & finally Edge comes out as the winner with the best battery life (of course).

Check out the comparison video:

The results speak for themselves: Microsoft Edge outlasts the rest, delivering 17%-70% more battery life than the competition.

Microsoft compared what happens when watching streaming videos on Surface Books running the latest stable versions of Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera. They said “We streamed the same high-definition video wirelessly on each device and set up a video camera to record the laptops until each one died, noting the time when each device stopped playing.”

So, Now choice is yours, Probably we know chrome is your favorite browser but after this you can give Edge Browser a try, Maybe they are true.
