Edge uses less battery than other web browsers

Edge on Windows 10 April 2018 Update will make your battery last 14% longer than Chrome

With every Windows 10 release, Microsoft fires up its marketing machine to remind users of the advantages of the Microsoft Edge web internet browser.

In yet another advertising YouTube video, Microsoft is once again claiming battery life benefits with Edge in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update.In this latest video Microsoft puts tests the battery life of three identical devices running three various internet browsers, each streaming the exact same HD video in a constant loop. This is not precisely a scientific test, however the company finds that the test PC running Microsoft Edge with the April 2018 Update lasts 98% longer than Mozilla Firefox, and 14% longer than Google Chrome. Speaking in terms of hours, that adds up to 14 hours 20 minutes on Edge, 7 hrs 15 minutes on Firefox, and 12 hours and 32 minutes on Chrome.
