About Hardono

Hi, I'm Hardono. I am working as a Software Developer. I am working mostly in Windows, dealing with .NET, conversing in C#. But I know a bit of Linux, mainly because I need to keep this blog operational. I've been working in Logistics/Transport industry for more than 11 years.

Recently, I read article which says that Microsoft Edge kicked Mozilla Firefox out of second position.

I did a very simple test comparing the performance of Microsoft Edge vs Google Chrome. Initially, I suspect both will perform relatively the same. After all, Microsoft Edge is based on Chromium (the open source base of Google Chrome). Which one is better? Judge for yourself.

Google Chrome

Microsoft Edge

Both tests were conducted on Lenovo X270 laptop.

It seems I’m not the first one encountering this issue on Microsoft Edge. What do you think?

Reminder about the vulnerable groups in this pandemic:

COVID-19: Keeping our seniors safe

Our seniors are the most vulnerable group
👵 Many have weaker immunity
👴 More likely to have other health conditions
😷 Have higher risk of severe illness and death from the virus

💜 To our Seniors
– Stay at home as much as possible
– Don’t go to the market
– Ask someone for help with your marketing and essentials
– If you have to go out, wear a mask

💙 For those with seniors in the family
– Help the seniors with their marketing and essentials
– If you are unwell, do not visit or go near to seniors

❤️ The health of all depends on each one of us.
