According to stats, Presently the most popular web browser is Google's chrome . But Edge (Microsoft's new web browser) for windows 10 might prove to be superior. 

Microsoft's head of the Windows Insider program Gabe Aul announced a new set of benchmarks for Microsoft Edge in a Windows blog post.

Microsoft Edge showed significant performance gains over Google Chrome, but most impressive thing is that Microsoft used benchmarks created by Apple and Google: Edge was tested using Google Octane, Apple JetStream, and WebKit Sunspider. That last one is actually a benchmark created by Apple's WebKit development team that's intended for the iOS, Mac, and Windows versions of Safari, Apple's web browser.

According to the benchmark results, Microsoft Edge was 112% faster than Google Chrome on WebKit Sunspider, 11% faster on Google Octane, and 37% faster on Apple JetStream.

Gabe Aul said : 

"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,"

If these results are accurate, Microsoft Edge could soon be the web browser of choice for Windows users, considering its power and efficiency. At the very least, these kinds of performance improvements could spur other web browsers like Chrome to innovate and improve their own products. But as it stands right now, this looks like a great reason to try Windows 10 when it launches later this year.

Windows 10 will be a free download for Windows 7 and Windows 8 users.
