We’ve just posted the following news: Popup on Windows 10 should convince Chrome users that Edge browser is better[newsimage]http://www.myce.com/wp-content/images_posts/2016/07/windowschrome-95x75.png[/newsimage]

Microsoft tries to convince Chrome users on Windows 10 to switch to the Edge browser by showing them a popup stating Edge is better. The campaign seems to be another attempt from Microsoft to aggressively promote its own products.

The conclusion of that test is that Edge would be the most power efficient browser.
What test and why can’t we the user test and verify? Sounds like alot of padding is going on here. Thinly veil attempts at making people go Windows 10 which isn’t flying.

A claim that Opera challenged, however both Opera and Microsoft agree that Chrome is the most power hungry browser.
Of course they would say that wouldn’t they.

I’m happy with Google Chrome. Â Windows being resource heavy is probably a larger cause of battery drain than what browser one uses.

While I am a member in the camp of google/social media haters club, I do call that browser ‘Edge of oblivion’ as it is so full of bugs and have barely reached a functional level.

Anyway, here’s hoping that Redstone1 will finally do something about that… Hopefully also fuel stability for the OS as a whole :flower:

I use IE11 and FF47 on Windows 7 and so far no more problems then one would have some sites work better in IE and some don’t care. So that is why I use IE alot of stuff is still tied into IE and IE isn’t going to just let that go by the waste side.

This reminds me of the crap Microsoft pulled against Netscape in the 1990s. Microsoft did everything in their power to sabotage Netscape, and as a result, were sued by the US government. Microsoft is using a slightly different tactic, but their end goal is the same: to kill their competitors in the browser market.

If Microsoft really cared about your battery life, they might consider giving their flagship OS a long-overdue de-bloating. The best way to save battery is often to reduce the amount of crap the CPU has to deal with. Of course, that’s not the Microsoft way.
