New optimizations boost performance in preview builds of Microsoft Edge - Microsoft Edge Blog

--- Quote ---Starting with Microsoft Edge build 81.0.389.0 on 64-bit Windows 10, we’ve enabled new toolchain optimizations that should provide a substantial performance improvement in general browsing workloads.

We’ve measured an up to 13% performance improvement in the Speedometer 2.0 benchmark when compared to Microsoft Edge 79. Speedometer measures performance by simulating user interactions in a sample web app across a number of DOM APIs and popular JavaScript frameworks used by top sites, and is generally regarded as a good proxy for real-world performance across a number of different subsystems including the DOM, JavaScript engine, layout, and more.

It is important to note that the Microsoft test had no other tabs open and no apps -- by apps, I gather that includes ad-blockers, etc.  If you run a comparison, post your results as a reply.

I've been using Edge as my default for a few weeks now and I have to say, I like it. AFAIK, every site I have visited has displayed properly - certainly quickly. Including some that my previous default, PM, refused to render properly. My water/trash/sewer utility company's website for example, didn't like PM and is a primary reason I gave Edge a chance again one the "new" Edge came out. That said, I suspect it was the utility company's rejection of PM rather than PM failing to render it.

I just ran that Speedometer test on Chrome, Edge, FF, IE, and PM. Surprisingly (I think), it failed to run with IE.

PM only scored 25.1. FF scored 73.8. Edge got 85.1 but Chrome eked out a win with a slight lead of 87.9. I re-ran Edge and Chrome 2 more times and got similar results, where Chrome slightly edged-out Edge (pun intended).

Edge 31.4
PM 14.2

I think I have problem with my internet connection...

Edge (80.0.361.50) scored 61.08; waiting to compare when I get version 81, which is supposed to be optimized.
Firefox (73.0)                    48.5
MyPal (28.8.2)                   19.7
(These comparison were made on a system at work.)

It is probably more to do with your service contract with your provider and not an actual "problem". Check your speeds with and Then check your contract to make sure you are getting what you pay for. If not, contact your ISP and complain. Hopefully, the contract states a minimum and not something vague like “up to” some speed.
