The below results came up after the test (in hours : minutes : seconds):

These tasks, as claimed by the company, include things like opening sites, tabs, reading emails, scrolling articles and watching small videos. Microsoft has also reportedly published data it collected from millions Windows 10 PCs. In a blogpost, the software giant claims, "We designed Microsoft Edge from the ground up to prioritize power efficiency and deliver more battery life, without any special battery saving mode or changes to the default settings."

According to the latest data from NetApplications, Chrome is now the most popular browser in the world. The browser has over 45% share in the market. The biggest loser, according to the study, is Microsoft's Internet Explorer, which went from 41.37% down to 38.6% during the month of May.

No doubt about that, once immensely popular Internet Explorer is almost dead now and a re-birth has been given as Edge to it. Let's see how it goes in it's journey ahead competing it's rivals.
