Microsoft Edge comes back as a Powerful browser.
Microsoft struggled for years to get people to use its Edge browser. Although the company has made the default Edge browser on Windows 10, users have been locked to Google Chrome for the most part — and for good cause. Edge was powered down, had tough features, and offered only a small number of extensions in comparison with Chrome and Firefox.
Microsoft has now launched a new Edge version based on Chrome’s same driving technology. The new Edge is a much better browser, and it is for convincing reasons. But you could still prefer to use Chrome, Firefox, or one of a number of other browsers.
Note, it may have changed since then, even if you have already configured another browser for your default. If there is a major upgrade for Windows 10, the upgrade recommends switching to Edge and you may have made the switch inadvertently.
The latest KB4559309 update made it super fast and light, looking at its performance I was forced to switch to the new Microsoft Edge Browser.
Let’s discover, what you see after the update:
Microsoft made it very clear this time that they won’t let the competitors lead the market. People who are already using chrome are aware of the high CPU consumption of Chrome and are just forced to use it because of the advance features but this might be the end of an era with this latest update by Microsoft.
We saw a lot of cool features with regards to the light and effective performance with low CPU usage which personally melt my heart.
After the update is installed you would see the new browser where you go through some settings to personalise your use such as Importing data from your google chrome account etc.
You have different themes with multiple search setting during your first setup.
We loved it and would suggest you give it a try if not you can change it whenever you want. Microsoft’s new Edge browser: Whatever the reason, it will be easy to switch over to your browser if Edge’s your default Windows 10 browser.
It takes just a few minutes. You can be sure that the newest version of Windows 10 — version 1909, and also the November 2019 update is installed in this article. If you haven’t installed it, your screens can be slightly different than what you see here. Why would you like to hold on to Edge
