    Is there any truth in Edge using less battery than Chrome?


    I got a pop up message on my machine stating that using chrome uses more battery than Edge browser.

    I feel this is a cheap marketing tactic from MS which really should not be happening in the OS.

    Question though - is there any truth in it?
