    As OP I posted a quote from and a link to an article about Chrome vs Edge. My intent was not to start another browser war. Let’s try to adhere to the subject at hand, please. Really don’t mind a short, sweet comment like Wenda posted. That’s fine, but please don’t write a post about how you hate Edge or 10 and MS for that matter. This is simply about Chrome vs Edge.

    Quite honestly I haven’t had experience with Chrome for quite a while, however I have tried it and used other browsers in the past. We all pretty much know how they work. I mostly use Edge in 10 and IE11 in 8.1. Consider me a MS “purist” in that I’ve learned but to use a few 3rd party software. It seems I have less problems with my system than others do, but that’s me and my general view. I could be right or wrong. That’s just how I like to operate. That is all.

    IMO, when boiled down to it there’s really no “true world” test for a browser or any other program sending data across a domain, for there are many unknown factors while testing as BunnyJ, Almighty1, and others have mentioned. It depends on which way the wind blows with speed and direction. Just one factor to add is also depends on the system and what it’s performing with resources at the time when attempting to use a browser. Look at the many processes. They start and end at any given time, which may slow down a system with what one is performing. Even if it’s just a second or two. Just too many factors IMO.

    The best one can do is to test using the law of averages. Test something for a length of time so exponentially the new data is so miniscule that it really doesn’t matter anymore so to test further. e.g. “Show off your internet speed!” thread. One really can’t post the results of one test, for it’s inaccurate. It needs to be an average on a series of tests. Yet some post the highest score so they get to be “top dog”. It’s deceptive.

    What got me about the article is the statement about extensions in Chrome slowing it down. Well, if you’re going to test something then test it as most users will use it, which BTW is another factor as we all know. Their results weren’t fair to neither Chrome nor Edge IMO. Once again a more “sensationalist” type article than giving any real facts.

    So far as safety is concerned, of which I think is the biggest factor of any browser to ward off hacks and/or Internet disease (virus, worms, adware, etc). To me that should be a bigger concern over speed. I’d rather waste 2, 4, or more seconds of time opening a page than spend hours fixing a system due to any one of the diseases. I don’t know how safe Chrome or any other browser is, but with using Edge it’s so far so good. I’ve been using it 95% of the time since the first 10 preview build with no infestation so far. I’ve switched to IE when I get frustrated with Edge. It has it’s quirks from time to time.

    So far as extensions. WinRT is much different than Win32 API. I don’t think Edge will be getting any extensions in the sense other browsers are written. Edge is a WinRT Store app. Extensions, although not called that any more, are written into Edge with options to turn on and off like any other "feature" in a Store app. Below is the way I have my Edge configured to the safest and speediest way I know of so far until I learn different. So far I think Edge is a good compromise between safety and speed. Edge also has some features I like that others will never have.

    Thanks, Winuser, but it looks as though our posts are a real thread killer.

    Ok, cool.

    I've had no problem with as of late with build 10586.3. I was just after upgrade with it vanishing now and then, but so did some of my other Store apps, which I've concluded was a 10 processing problem. It has settled down with no problems as of late.

    Been using Edge almost exclusively since 10240 came out. On my system it performs very well and it does everything I need in a web browser.

    Both are slow at loading Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com
    That site is loading slow because it's not optimized for speed. Browsers have nothing to do in this case aside from rendering the page.

    This explains why.
    WebPagetest Test Result - Dulles : forums.androidcentral.com/ - 11/24/15 16:27:01

    It could be faster, alot faster but for now it's loading tons & tons of file requests.

    Lookie here, LJ. You're a Cortana/Bing celeb. LOL! I wanted to demonstrate one of the best features of Edge it to highlight something and ask Cortana for info, so I highlighted you forum name and walla! You're first on the list.

    I've been saying since I understood the new OS concept in 8 Preview builds that MS's approach is much quicker and safer with accomplishing tasks via navigation. Not sure, but I think this has to do with a program in 10 called App Connector. It's when one app calls for another app to perform a task. This is similar to add-ons such as a search engine, dictionary, etc. This is all performed within the OS itself. A product of WinRT rather than Win32.
