Microsoft Edge Comments

Pretty decent actually

Positive Comment by shnbwmn
about Microsoft Edge and Bing Aug 2016

Yeah - no extensions, default Bing search, can't change download folder without hacks, sluggish on some pages, etc (as of this writing).

But, it opens fast and looks great. Its pared-down nature makes it my first choice for quickly opening favourite sites. The interface never gets in my way and I can focus entirely on browsing. Other browsers can end up becoming bloated with tons of extensions and customisations, and so far Edge has avoided that. That's a plus in my book.

Doesn't allow compatibility FULLY as of yet with Norton Product. I paid good $ for Norton and hope Microsoft will soon comply.

about Microsoft Edge Apr 2016

I've paid nearly $100 for the Norton Securities software by choice to install on my system. I have received on several occasions that Microsoft Edge is not fully compatible with Norton Securities, forcing me to use Firefox (preferred) or google (still up for grabs on preference). Get it together Microsoft work with users who prefer other Security software.

It's getting there slowly.

about Microsoft Edge Apr 2016

Edge renders pages very fast, I must say. Great performance. However, it will take quite some time and development to make it as good as the likes of Firefox. Extensions are needed badly, but on their way shortly. Also needs better Favourite management, customization etc. Overall a good solid platform to build on.

This is just a new version of IE.

Faster Than Chrome and Safari in JavaScript

Comment by Phendrome
about Microsoft Edge Jul 2015

Taken from their blog post regarding build 10240 for Windows 10:

"The Edge team has been continuing to optimize performance since first adding the new browser to Windows 10. In this build, Microsoft Edge is even better and is beating Chrome and Safari on their own JavaScript benchmarks:
•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."
