    What do you guys think of the "Browser War" between Edge and Opera?

    I'm sure that a lot of you guys heard about the study conducted over battery life on PCs that use different browsers contently. According to Microsoft, Edge outperformed all the other browsers in terms of battery conservation. Opera's creators struck back with their own study saying that Opera outperformed all the other browsers, including Edge. Who do you guys think is right? Never used Opera to be honest, so I don't know.

    EDIT: Changed Oracle to Opera. Mixed up the two services. That was embarrassing xD

    Not sure it is Oracle but I remember seeing both articles. I doubt either browser really makes much difference though. The good thing is that by these browsers competing eventually both should get better.

    It's Opera browser I am pretty sure Oracle has nothing to do with Opera.

    For those that have not heard of this yet here are Links.

    Original post from Microsoft:
    We designed Microsoft Edge from the ground up to prioritize power efficiency and deliver more battery life, without any special battery saving mode or changes to the default settings. Our testing and data show that you can simply browse longer with Microsoft Edge than with Chrome, Firefox, or Opera on Windows 10 devices.
    Response from the developers of Opera:
    This May, Opera became the first major browser to ship a dedicated battery saving feature. This feature optimizes our Chromium/Blink based browser engine and user interface in order to give users more time to browse their favorite websites. Our tests showed that the feature increased the battery life by as much as 50% when compared to other browsers, such as Google Chrome.
    One browser we didn’t pay attention to was Microsoft Edge. Mostly because Edge is only available on Windows 10. This Monday, however, Microsoft released a video, similar to the one we made, showing Microsoft Edge winning in their test. Following the video was an extensive blog post and obviously a huge PR effort, and it was argued that the test showed that Edge beats Firefox, Chrome and Opera.

    I also had not heard of Oracle buying Opera Software, a Search for such found a large number of pages about Opera and the dozen or so I viewed had no mention of Oracle.
