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?
