The new Microsoft Edge came out last month, bringing compatibility with Chrome extensions and many other features to Microsoft’s browser. Now, in addition to having new features, PCMark says that the new Edge performs better as well. According to the PCMark 10 benchmarks, the new Edge performs at least 10 percent better than the old Edge.

PCMark 10 focuses on real-world usage, including watching videos, browsing web pages, shopping online, and viewing maps. This is to simulate a realistic browsing experience, rather than checking a simple situation like just watching videos.

PCMark10 can test the performance of the new Microsoft Edge thanks to its recent update to v2.1.2165. Here’s the complete changelog for the update:

  • The PCMark 10 Applications benchmark is now compatible with the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser.
  • Improved compatibility with the Windows 10 Background Activity Moderator service to avoid PCMark 10 tests being classed as background processes.

The new Microsoft Edge came out last month for Windows and macOS. It’s earned positive reviews around the web, including from us and our friends at iMore.

With its recent release on Windows and macOS, a version of Microsoft Edge is now available on Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, macOS, iOS and Android.
