    Edge not faster than IE 11


    Edge is not any faster than IE 11 on my laptop with SSD.

    Google Chrome has it by a mile!
    Even Firefox beats it hands down.

    The fact that Edge will not likely have any extensions to test by July 29 is a huge deception.
    After all, people who have computers live in their browsers!
    So, what kind of browser is Edge supposed to be?

    Benchmarks say differently.

    Microsoft Edge is already beating IE, Chrome and Firefox in JavaScript benchmarks | Windows Central

    Most importantly, Edge uses significantly less memory and resources...

    Without extensions and add-ons, there is no weight to drag. Edge will of course be faster and use less resources.

    You should try Waterfox:
    Waterfox - The fastest 64-Bit browser on the web

    ... as it's a direct 64 bit port of Firefox.

    Two things I quite like of Firefox/Waterfox are sharing of profiles and AdBlock Plus. I dislike adverts.

    Will Edge have something similar to AdBlock Plus?

    Try clearing cache in FF and chrome before comparing

    I prefer Cyberfox. It does not share it's profile with Firefox.

    Point is, even without clearing cache, both FF and Chrome are faster than IE.
    Don't use IE for lack of extensions, so don't have to clear cache there.

    The cache saves pages locally for faster loading, chrome will load slower after cache is cleared
