Microsoft Edge beats Chrome in power efficiency

A recent comparative test showed that Microsoft’s Edge web browser beat Chrome and others in terms of power efficiency. Edge appeared to be the most power-efficient browser to date.

According to a report on Tech Radar, the Edge, Chrome, Firefox and Opera were tested simultaneously to see which notebook the browsers ran on would run out of juice first. The notebooks were put through a range of tasks including opening sites, adding tabs, rolling through pages and playing videos.


The Edge-equipped notebook lasted for around 7 hours and 22 minutes, followed by Opera at 6 hours, 18 minutes; Firefox at 5 hours and 9 minutes; and Chrome with only 4 hours and 20 minutes to show for.

It would seem that Microsoft is more than ecstatic about its victory and is saying that there will be more efficiency tweaks when its Windows 10 update comes out next month. This includes using less memory and CPU cycles. Alfred Bayle
