Edge Takes Top Spot in Microsoft Browser Battery Life Test (Again)

The free app for android devices is said to work better on low end smartphones and in areas with intermittent coverage. Reasons for its success include its tiny file size and portal-like approach to showing news scores from sports and other content

In a series of official Microsoft Edge videos posted on its YouTube channel, Microsoft has taken Google Chrome, the reigning top Windows browser head-on.

Microsoft ended 2017 with yet another video demonstrating how its Edge browser fares against the competition in terms of battery life.

"Why settle for fast and safe browsing when you can get faster and safer browsing".

Despite Microsoft making good progress on Microsoft Edge over the years, the web browser built from the ground up for Windows 10 is still struggling for browser share on the desktop OS.


Microsoft Edge has received major improvements in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, including a new design based on Fluent Design Language System. To be more precise, while Edge lasted about 16 hours eight minutes, Chrome lasted about 13 hours 32 minutes and Firefox about nine hours and 52 minutes.

The almost 30-second video provides a quick look at the advantages of using Microsoft Edge. Last month, Net Applications claimed that the web browser was now being used by less than one in six Windows 10 users, with more than 60% of them using Google Chrome.

However, Microsoft's claims need to be put in context, as it's not the first time Microsoft has published tests purporting to show Edge beating rival browsers on battery life. According to Microsoft's results, Edge laster 63 percent longer than Firefox and 19 percent longer than Chrome.
