It's getting there slowly.

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.


Faster Than Chrome and Safari in JavaScript

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."

I would give this Browser a try, after changing its engine to chromium.
Its the fastest browser I tried so far. Make sure to use only a few extensions, otherwise it could slow down the performance.

A fantastic browser. I don't many extensions but I look forward to what edge will be like in another year. It's made GREAT progress....


This is just a new version of IE.
