I'd read somewhere earlier in the day that battery life was one of the things MS said they wanted to improve on in 10. They stated that it was just as good as 8 but it could be better. Don't remember where I read the article at but still.
I did notice my battery life drop a bit quicker since moving to 10 but I don't have anything optimized yet so...

When I can open Edge in a second monitor I'll take a serious look at it. As a web designer I need this. Dragging it to the second monitor isn't enough.
I use Chrome 95% percent of the time, with FireFox at 4% percent, and IE coming in at 1% percent. I don't think I could ever give up my Chrome, just to many darn extensions that I use on it. With the Play Store I have all my music & books stored there, just couldn't give that up.
I also believe that it will take Edge at least a year before it has a lot of it's kinks removed. It definitely needs a reset option on it and have they fixed where it imports bookmarks backwards, yet? It really needs a bookmark manager, and a few other items, to make it useful.
[Edit] Nope it still imports bookmarks in reverse order
