    Here's a example of loading Windows 10 Forums currently using the built in browser developer tools:

    Chrome v47.0.2526.69 beta-m (64-bit):

    So Chrome actually loaded 75 things vs 6 things in Edge when Windows 10 Forums is put in but Chrome is 0.81s faster. This is all because tenforums.com is fast... Now trying to go through the General forum is slower because it has lots of topics.

    The same test going to LG G4 - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com is slower because I think it has to do with how many things are on the site like ads and such and if it requires Adobe Flash or not...

    Chrome which is 5.13seconds:

    As far as youtube.com is concerned, unless the chrome still uses flash and not html5.... I'm literally next door to Youtube and keep in mind that both Youtube and Chrome are both part of Google, now known as Alphabet Inc.

    You would be surprised that tenforums.com is in Dallas, Texas which is actually further away than AndroidCentral.com which is actually in California. When you connect to Microsoft.com or Apple.com for example, you are not connecting to Microsoft's or Apple's servers, instead, you are connected to Akamai Technologies CDN (Content Delivery Network) which are basically servers hosted worldwide and you are always connected to the closest thing of the DNS you use, not your physical location so it can be slow if you are using a DNS that is not close to your ISP so technically Microsoft or Apple only needs to send everything once to the CDN and it will be mirrored on all the servers so the ISPs or wherever the Akamai servers are will only use traffic to send to you, not from Microsoft or Apple each time you ask for a download unless the content has changed, this is how Netflix works too as they use CDN's for distribution, otherwise the internet backbones would be overloaded.

    AH.. not quite. Adding extensions is not going to make it that much better and it might open it up to more issues.

    Yes but give Microsoft time don't think they want to make same mistake they made with IE Browser.
    They will want to get it nearly perfect before they add to much to it, and I think it will be test upon test before it is finally what everyone wants.
    With the big businesses switching to windows 10 as well Edge will get top priority with updates and testing
