Here were the results when Microsoft Edge was pitted against Google’s Chrome:
- On WebKit Sunspider, Edge is 112% faster than Chrome
- On Google Octane, Edge is 11% faster than Chrome
- On Apple JetStream, Edge is 37% faster than Chrome
And this is on a pre-final build of the browser. It would be interesting to see Apple and Google respond to this challenge and run their own tests. In the meantime, let’s hope that Edge comes with even more improvements.
