A lot of shouting has been going about the use of Edge lately. Microsoft is not happy with the claim of being the friendliest of the browsers available. Moreover company has made Edge support for Netflix.
To add to the latest twist, Microsoft has switched its side and instead has started criticizing Chrome by using pop up messages and use promotional ways for Edge. The pop up has been giving information on switching to Edge to increase the longitivity.
After seeing the criticism posted by Microsoft, Opera has informed that a test does reveal Opera has the most efficient battery. Opera does inform that its battery saving feature does save life of the battery to around 50% when it is compared to Chrome. Company has criticized Microsoft of not revealing the methods used and accusation has been made of not being transparent in his leads given. Moreover test does reveal Edge as being the second best to Opera.
Microsoft is doing for the first time to advertise apps on Windows 10 and it is considered to be one of the aggressive forms of advertising the software it is using for its operating system.
Comment made by a software developer named Rudy Huyn offending the use of Chrome battery has been published online. Microsoft is yet to comment on this and it would be interesting how many of the users would see this appear on their computer.
Tests given out by Opera do not give full clarity and honesty. You would want Opera to provide its latest version of the browser that is launched to have a test, but it is not so. Instead it has used Opera Version that has power saving and ad blocker enabling done. Moreover test reveal through graph that Chrome does give battery life of 2 hours and 54 minutes. Whereas Edge gives battery life of 3 hours and 12 minutes. Opera does give 6 minutes short of 3 hours whereas Edge does have more than 3 hours of battery life.
