How fast is Microsoft Edge?


I did some testing between the newest version of Chrome, firefox and Microsoft Edge by Sunspider tool. The Sunspider is a tool focus on testing JavaScript performance for modern web browsers that was created by apple WebKit project. The less time consumption means the faster Web Browser you have. Here is the testing result:

Microsoft Edge(version:20.10240.16384.0):

Total:                  256.8ms+/- 5.8%

Chrome(version: 43.0.2357.134):

Total:                  635.1ms +/- 5.6%

Firefox(39.0):

Total:                  589.3ms +/- 9.8% 

By now, Microsoft Edge is the fastest Web browser! Compare with Chrome, Edge has a significant performance improvement that faster 2.7 times than Chrome:

    Now it just needs to become stable (it crashes/hangs often), get addons, get some decent dev tools (no f12 tools are not quite there yet) and catchup in html5 specs.. but its good to see progress.

  2. Rush says:

    Is that version of Edge the one that comes with windows 10 build 10240 or is it a dev build?

  3. Michael Lee2 says:

    It's Win10 10240 build. Please notice Microsoft Edge: 20.10240.16384.0

    Man, I wanted to like Edge, but it's the same old story! MS just ignored us in IE11 for simple productivity improvements like Paste & Go. So inconsistent, it exists in the Metro version, and now not in Edge.

    Using it is still a bit odd, and tabs still alter each others performance, I guess async/await isn't working.

    I will say it's more compatible with websites, and like they've been saying since IE9, it's supposed to be very fast, and it is... on tests! Overall experience is a bit different, and I'm just not seeing it that much.

    Another missed opportunity, IMO.
