Rest of the Day: Microsoft Claims Edge Is the Best Browser for Battery Life

If you’re a Windows 10 user and battery life is your top priority, you might want to stick with Microsoft’s own apps. So says Microsoft, which recently put its Edge browser on edge in a race to battery life with popular alternatives.

Ultimately, Edge lasted 70 percent longer than an identical laptop (Surface Book) playing an identical online video in Chrome. While this is obviously not without bias, it is all vaguely scientific! And I believe them; Chrome, which was once touted as a lightweight browser, has become something of a resource eater. Edge might just as well have some fun when you’re trying to extend battery life (although testing Microsoft software on Microsoft hardware has definitely given them an edge in the home arena, so to speak).
