Microsoft beats out Google, Safari

WASHINGTON: American techno-giant Microsoft’s internet browser Microsoft Edge has beaten out market dominating browsers like Google Chrome and Safari in terms of speed, claims Microsoft.

In it official blog, Microsoft has claimed that their team has created a browser named Microsoft Edge (previously known as Project Spartan) that performs way faster than both the dominating browsers.

All three browsers were put through JavaScript benchmark tests to conclude Edge’s supremacy. In order to get unbiased results, Microsoft ran benchmark tests against Chrome and Safari on platforms created by Google and Apple teams.

The JavaScript benchmarks on WebKit Suspider revealed that Microsoft Edge was 112% faster than Chrome. While running the same test on Octane and JetStream, Edge surpassed Chrome in both benchmarks by 11% and 37%, respectively.

Octane is Google’s own JavaScript test suite, made of multiple tests, while JetStream is a JavaScript test suite by Apple.

“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,” Gabe Aul, Head of the Windows Insider programme, wrote the company’s official blog on Wednesday.

“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,” Aul added.
