Nowadays, Microsoft Edge gets better with each latest upgrade of Windows 10. After three years of its primary releases, I am comparing it with the Google Chrome as an end user only to see that how it fares when it will come to battery usage, and speed, among other things. In this post article, you can check whether Microsoft Edge vs. Google Chrome to see which one is better for Windows 10 operating system.
Highlights: Microsoft Edge vs. Chrome
- Microsoft Edge will always let their users scribble and write on web pages before sharing it with others.
- Edge has the built-in support of Cortana on Windows 10.
- Edge loads much faster than the Google Chrome.
- Chrome uses some data prefetching, to work faster.
- Chrome is best for e-commerce applications as it is specially designed the traditional way.
- Microsoft Edge is a Metro App and can also access some other similar metro apps faster than the Chrome.
- Netflix and other video sites are performed well on Edge as it provides up to 1080p and also 4k resolutions.
- In some controlled situations, Microsoft Edge provides us with better battery performance as compared to Chrome.
- Microsoft claims that its Edge browser is 37% faster than the Google Chrome.
Reading View of Edge vs. Chrome
While Edge and Chrome both are very good in providing reading views, but Edge will offer a few more things. Hence it provides us with a quality screen by which we can read long articles and eBooks. Though, the dark mode of the Windows 10 was already highlighted the Edge window only to provide us a better-focused window.
However, the reading mode on Edge contains a dictionary; you just need to highlight that word to see the exact meaning of that word. You just to right-click on it and then select “Search on Google” in Chrome. This will turn into translating to active goggling of words for meaning. But in Edge, you just need to highlighted by double-click or double-tap the word you want to know, and the meaning of that words automatically appears in a balloon just above the word.
Browsing Options: Chrome vs. Edge
Though Chrome and Edge have their own preferences and settings section where users can easily set up their preferences during the time of browsing; users can control the Edge better than the Chrome. You have to make some modification in the Internet Options given in the Control Panel to make all things work as per your conditions.
E-Commerce Websites and Complicated Websites
Sometimes, Edge is failed to render websites that are very high on resources. If the website is too much of CSS and ActiveX Controls, then your Microsoft Edge might crash or hang. However, it is not necessary to explain that one future upgrades might help you in fixing this issue. The problem might be due to the metro interface of the Microsoft Edge. Some of other older websites do not blend it with the interface, and also the Way Edge will render some other websites. These entire websites are worked good on Google Chrome, due to backward compatibility which is very less in Edge for many other security reasons.
Microsoft Edge is best as it is developed by keeping the future in mind. It might also prove some problems on traditional websites which are yet to be updated for the current internet. Somehow, the Microsoft Browser is really meant for all current future style websites. Some other touch-based applications work very well within the Microsoft Edge as it is a Metro-style application. But the Google Chrome fails here, with some easy tricks; Chrome manages to speed up their browsing history but unluckily ends up with troubling your hard-disks and SSDs. However, both the browser are best and worked very well, but if you are looking for any touch interface, then Edge is one of the best browsers for you.
