[TV] Microsoft Shows How Bad Chrome is For Your Laptop's Battery. (VIDEO) - Page 3

post #21 of 75

 

Chrome is basically bundleware nowadays, not surprising to see it on the rise.

 

I personally went from IE to Firefox to Chrome to Firefox and you couldn't pay me enough to switch back to Chrome.

 

I do use Edge for certain things though.

^This. I always uninstalled/disabled it when it was still Internet Explorer, and nothing has changed now that it's Edge....I tend to go back and forth between Chrome and Firefox....

I don't know about this, if you pause the video every few seconds you start to see that the Microsoft edge one is out of sync then it re-sync when there is only Opera left.


I wouldn't be surprised if what Microsoft edge is rendering a completely different video.

They need to do another test where it measures how fast using each browser drains your patience/soul/will to live.

it was fine for my tablet/notebook combo but then there was no Adblocker and Ghostery plug in and I switched to Chrome shortly after. Would've switched to Firefox but it didn't work well with the touchscreen.

Edge needs an Adblocker and needs to get rid of MS asking you questions all the time. Don't bother me and no I will not rate my login screen get lost!

I found this part most interesting:

"To further prove Microsoft's point, the company is also releasing aggregated telemetry data from millions of Windows 10 machines that show Microsoft Edge and Firefox are both more power efficient than Google's Chrome browser."

With that said, I do find Edge lightweight on CPU for normal web pages. Pale Moon (not regular FF) is also good.

As far as im concerned since google finally fixed the cpu priority bug in chrome a few months ago im never turning back. really glad i submitted the same bug pretty much on a monthly basis for a couple years. They were probably really annoyed with me but chorme went from kinda crappy to completely bad ass since its been fixed. thumb.gif

i think that is more detrimental than battery life.

also i bet a shiny quarter that they never turned off hardware acceleration on any of the note books and since internet explorer is so crap they can't even use hardware acceleration.

You're not going to notice the difference sitting at your desktop, but jump into the mobile market (laptop/tablets) and all those windows 8 apps that people loved to crap on suddenly outclassed their 3rd party counterparts. Specifically the PDF reader - opening an 800 page PDF using W8 PDF reader on a tablet is possible...not with Adobe.

Now let's look at the comparison I did for IE vs Chrome a year and a half ago......

This browser is a pain in the ass to code for.
Uh, comparing IE and Edge is a bit disingenuous isn't it? Edge is way better at the standards. It's actually a reasonably good modern browser (still not as good as Chrome in most ways, but you know).

Even IE11 wasn't absolutely terrible, though it had enough comparability baked in (and websites just treated it like every other IE) that it was still pretty bad. It's part of the reason MS even came up with "Edge" and changed all their user agent strings.

Up to Windows 8.1, I used tabbed sites with IE11 because it was such a nice method of connecting to those sites and treat them as desktop apps. Chrome can do the same thing, of course, but it's terrible at it because it's a drain on system resources. 

 

On Windows 10 that functionality died. I'm no longer able to add those shortcuts into the system menu, and sites aren't treating Edge the same way either. It'll improve eventually, but for now it's meh. Chrome has been standing in for that functionality for a while,  but it's just not the same, despite the better standards support and Ublock. 

 

On the fast ring build out now, Edge is beautiful. I feel like I'm dying inside whenever I visit Youtube in Chrome because of the odd video that plays with the built in flash player, while Edge will force HTML5 as much as possible. Microsoft is also contributing to the other standards like VP9, which will be a big boon to those of you who pay attention to bandwidth usage, and I'm never watching Netflix using the desktop site ever again - the app is simply better (and it's using the rendering engine from Edge). 

 

I could, quite conceivably, see myself ditching Chrome for Edge, though much of Edge's functionality needs a big boost to come close to the user friendliness of Firefox, for example. Right-click to search an image using Bing? Doesn't happen. Right-click to save the background image? IE11 had it, Firefox had it, but not Chrome and not Edge. There is sadly no best browser, and it irks me to have to use multiple applications that could be done with one that does all of these things well. Edge's extensibility might be its saving grace, so long as Microsoft gets out of the way and only imposes restrictions where necessary to preserve the user experience.

 

And I really love the way it renders pages now. In the beginning it was slow and laggy, but on my netbook it's almost as fast as my desktop.
