    Win10 Edge Browser Test


    Lengthy, but interesting article on Edge from ZDNet.

    Can these tests really determine best browser for everyday use ? My personal experience running 8.1 with an i3, 4GB, laptop is that IE 11 actually performs the best for my needs.

    With just over six weeks before Windows 10's launch, we can start benchmarking programs on it to see what to expect. True, all these web browsers' performance will improve once Windows 10 has rolled out, but the operating system is mature enough that we can start to see just how fast web browsers will run on it.

    Nice article,torre, interesting. IE 11 not a slow browser by any means,will will know for sure once Edge comes, i just do not like some of the things about IE 11 functions and add on abilities compared to others. Chrome yes was not far behind in a lot of test, but can be resource hog. I tend to favor Firefox.

    This article was on same page.

    Starting on July 7, Microsoft will be "retiring" the Modern/Windows Store version of Skype, and will migrate users of that version to the existing Windows desktop version.
