Microsoft challenges Google with another new battery test, shows Edge better than Chrome

Haha.... Microsoft tackle Google ones more with another battery test. While, If you have been watching the whole drama from the beginning "Season 1 of Episode 1",  you will as well know that Microsoft started the war battery test by running a battery test with the new Edge browser power saving mode and compare it with Opera, Google Chrome and Mozilla browsers which the result later shows that Microsoft have the best browser when its comes to battery saving.

Fast forward to "Season 1 of Episode 3" which Google later reply the challenge by using its latest version of Chrome to prove that adjustments have been made on how Google Chrome drain laptop battery life.Their result shows you can play until battery dies for 10Hrs 39Min when streaming a video Online via Vimeo. But now, Microsoft is back claiming to be the best.

For Microsoft to proof that they are champion when it comes to saving battery life, they re-created Google’s test, by using the same Vimeo clip which Google use during their test and they set it to loop on the same hardware (a Surface Book), Just as their normal behavior, they also included Opera and Firefox as well. Below is the results of the battery test.

Edge: 13:25:49
Chrome: 12:08:28
Opera: 9:37:23
Firefox: 8:16:49

Further in claiming to be the Hero, Microsoft went a step further and even re-created its battery test from June, which relied on looping a video streamed from Netflix as opposed to Vimeo. To little surprise, the test showed that Edge again came out on top:

 Edge: 8:47:06
Opera 7:08:58
 Chrome 6:03:54
Firefox 5:11:34

While these tests may or may not be very reflective of everyday use in real world situations, it’s clear that Microsoft is desperate to prove that Edge is a major player, if not the best, in Windows 10 browser market. The company is even opening up the testing process for anyone to try, putting the exact test used on GitHub, and detailing the methodology that was followed.
