With these results, Microsoft Edge is bound to set some new standards in the browser space. This can be a great boost for Microsoft, which was anchored down by the sluggish performance of Internet Explorer for years. Internet users switched to alternatives like Chrome and Safari for swift browsing and simple UI. But, Edge is looking to win back the trust of its users and entice them with its new features.
"We're really pleased with those performance gains and we hope that you'll enjoy faster browsing with Microsoft Edge along with the many great features we've added over the last several builds," Aul added.
Microsoft Edge, previously known as Project Spartan, will come with several new features such as Cortana integration for search, enhanced reading mode, note taking mode, advanced security and more. The new browser will be a part of Windows 10, which will be released later this month.
