Microsoft Edge Chromium vs Google Chrome which browser is better


We compare the performance and consumption of RAM from Google Chrome DEV and Microsoft Edge Chromium to see which web browser is better

Yesterday afternoon Microsoft officially launched the DEV and Canary versions of its new browser Microsoft Edge based on Chromium . Although this browser is still far from its final version, from now on any user who wants to try it can do so by downloading these official versions from their website, a browser that, as we could test yesterday, the truth is that it marks a before and a later in Edge, a renewal more than necessary. However, is it really up to Google Chrome?

In the end, a web browser is very personal; each user uses it in a different way and for different purposes, so it is impossible to say that a browser is better and point without giving further explanations.

From SoftZone we have decided test the new Microsoft Edge based on Chromium and compare it with the current leader of web browsers: Google Chrome. For this we have used the new version DEV of Edge Chromium and the latest DEV version of Google Chrome, both systems without extensions and with their standard configurations by default.

JetStream2: benchmark for measure browser performance according to web standards

As a benchmark we have decided to use the new JetStream2, benchmark recently launched by WebKit that performs a total of 64 tests to browsers to measure its performance and compatibility with the standards according to the rules of the Web Assembly.

The results we have obtained have been the following (the higher the better score):

  • Microsoft Edge based on Chromium DEV : 141.144
  • Google Chrome DEV : 136.118

Surprisingly, Microsoft's new browser, Edge Chromium, beats Google Chrome , both browsers starting from the same development branch DEV.

Obviously the benchmark is not everything, although it is an interesting start for the new Microsoft browser.

Which browser consumes less RAM?

One of the problems that users have always complained about is the large amount of RAM consumed by modern browsers, especially Google Chrome, who can easily occupy several gigabytes of memory by having a few tabs open .

We have tested both browsers by opening a couple of tabs and a video at 1080P from YouTube to see the resource consumption of each of them. Surprisingly, Edge Chromium, Microsoft's new browser, consumes less RAM than Google Chrome .

It's clear that Microsoft has done a great job for completely renew Microsoft Edge and, even if it is complicated, at least give you a chance to stand up to the two most used web browsers today: Google Chrome and Firefox.

A Edge Chromium He still has a long way to go, failures to correct (such as the possibility of changing the language, even if you put it in Spanish, it doesn't change) and, above all, finish bringing the current Google Chrome extensions to Edge, since this is a fundamental step that, if not met, Edge will be destined to fail.

Do you think we can finally face a worthy rival for Google Chrome?
