Edging Ahead: Microsoft claims its latest browser 112% faster than Chrome,
Retaining the Internet Explorer’s logo, Edge is said to be faster, leaner and more advanced than the tired predecessor. Featuring integration with Cortana, it also contains a revamped look offering more surface area to browser tabs and better screen distribution to make way for more content.
Recently, Google’s Chrome browser has come under fire for its heavy memory usage in PCS and smartphones, leading to slow performance and repeated stalls in platforms with limited installed RAMs. Microsoft could use this as an opportunity to promote the Edge browser, though it will be short-lived if people do not find it any different from the beleaguered internet explorer.
